Even though the Earth is made up mostly of water, a large percentage of the waters remain unexplored today. We might never know the kind of mysterious ‘hybrid’ creatures that are lurking in the deep, but some people are lucky enough to get a glimpse of these great creatures.
Two fishermen from China were baffled after chancing upon a weird creature. While they were fishing in Hangzhou bay, province of Zhejiang, the fishermen were only expecting to take home fish for their dinner plate. However, they were not expecting to encounter a mysterious ‘hybrid’ creature that is still baffling many people worldwide.
The Hangzhou bay is abundant with different species of fish. Every now and then, a strange fish will pop out of the water, but people are used to seeing them. But there are some exceptions to this. On one fateful day, two fishermen discovered something that would change their outlook of the depths of the bay.
While fishing, they noticed that their boat was rocking, which is pretty unusual since the current in the bay is not really that strong. One of the fishermen took a look and was horrified to discover a crocodile-like creature swimming alongside of their boat!
Crocodiles are quite rare in the Hangzhou bay, but sometimes they appear in the murky waters. The fishermen were scared out of their wits, but they were even more terrified when they discovered that the creature was not a crocodile.
When the ‘crocodile’ resurfaced they had a hard time identifying what kind of creature it was. It seems like a crocodile, but it also resembled a dolphin. Because of this, many people on social media dubbed the mysterious ‘hybrid’ creature as ‘crocodolphin.’
Nobody would believe such story; luckily, one of the fishermen had his cellphone at that time. He took a video of the weird creature and uploaded it on the internet. It turns out however this creature was not some strange hybrid from seafarers’ nightmares, it’s a rare aquatic mammal called a beaked whale.
