On July 27 2010, Gill Pearce spotted a mysterious creature about 30 yards off the Devon coast at Saltern Cove, Paignton. First thought to be a turtle, photographs reveal something that is too long to be anything normally found in those waters.
The creature appears to be a greenish-brown beast with the reptile-like head is far too long for it to be a turtle.
Fish in the area were said to have beached themselves to escape the mysterious creature, very strange behavior for sure.
Saltern Cove, Paignton is about 200 miles south west of London on the southern coast of England on Tor Bay.
