Video: Weird mystery creature filmed swimming in Thailand

A weird piece of footage circulating online appears to show an unidentified creature lurking near a boat in Thailand. The odd video was posted to YouTube on Monday with, unfortunately, very little information as to its origins aside from the assertion that it was filmed by Thai fishermen. Aside from that, the specific location, as well as the date of the encounter, are unknown at this time.

Be that as it may, the footage is still rather interesting as the creature seems to resemble a turtle or perhaps a seal, although neither of those candidates quite fits the complete appearance of the animal. And, of course, some skeptical observers have suggested that the 'monster' is merely a toy being pulled by the boat, although considering that no one has claimed credit for the footage, that explanation seems a bit suspect.

Thankfully, beyond the initial snippet of video showing the oddity, there is also an additional segment in which the footage is slowed down, which allows for a better look at the aquatic anomaly. With that in mind, what's your theory for what the mystery creature could be? Give us your best guess at the Coast to Coast AM Facebook page.
