THE GREAT SEA MONSTER
By: Sandy Pea Homeroom: 203 Grade: 7
Have you ever read a fantasy story with a terrifying monster as the main disaster?
Marine scientist, Jasmine Santana, discovers a large sea creature.
This creature was said to be 18ft long.
They classified it to be an Oarfish.
It took a crowd of a beach, as well as the scientist, to drag this Oarfish to shore.
As Jasmine was snorkling she spots a sea serpent.
Scientists infer that the fish had died of natural causes.
Scientist plan to bury it underground for it to decay, then they will take the skeleton to display.
This event happened at Catalina Island in Southern California.
Scientist are trying to identify why they had found it in the shallow shores. Usually they live in the deeper ends of the ocean.
The Oarfish was found in the waters of Toyon Bay.
The beach it took place on was closed for further explorations.
Before this event they had found another Oarfish but much smaller, they were astonished at what they had recently found.
To this day they are trying to figure out why and how these Oarfishes were discovered.
What do you think?
