The Morgawr is a serpent like creature that lives near Falmouth Bay, Cornwall. In Cornish the word Morgawr means giant. Probably because the great multitude of people that say have seen it say that it is humongous.
It was first sighted in 1906, and scientists proposed that it may not actually be fiction. Since, it is possible that it may be a specie of “PLESIOSAUR”, or undiscovered specie of long necked seal. The depths of the sea that remain undiscovered prove a possible area of living or breeding ground for species like the Morgawr. It is also possible that since it has been seen by more than one individual, that the Morgawr creature really does exist.
What could be so hard to believe? There is so much in our world that has yet to be discovered. In 1876, 2 fishermen caught a sea serpent in their nets in Gerran’s Bay. A few years later (1926) a similar creature was caught in the nets of other fishermen. They say that the creature was 20 feet long with an eight foot tail, a beak-like head and scaly legs.
In 1975, a man and a woman taking a stroll said to have seen Morgawr off Pendennis Point in Falmouth Bay. They described the Morgawr to have a hunched back and stumpy horns with bristles running down its back. That same year it was spotted in Helford, near Durgan.
You’d think that maybe local legend simply got to the heads of the people in the area. Then why would two women from London claim to have seen it since they would most probably not know about it. They described it as a prehistoric looking creature that was about 30-40 feet long. During that time the Morgawr seemed to enjoy the attention since more than eight more sightings were recorded.
Then in 1992, a couple saw Morgawr again describing it as something like the Lochness Monster. They were skeptical about it before , but they actually saw it with their own eyes.In 1999, a worker of the Natural History Museum was actually able to capture the Morgawr on videotape.
Some of the most favorite theories would be that it is a dinosaur that was believed to be extinct. In time the Morgawr enjoys showing itself as if telling those that see it that is alive and well and that its existence is actually real and not a figment of people’s imagination.
How hard is it to believe that a creature like the Morgawr really does exist? When actual people, who have lived and are still alive profess that what they saw was nothing near fictional. There are so many things in our world that science can not yet explain. However, this does not mean that it, they, or whatever it may be is just nothing but the human mind playing games.
Scientists contend the reality of the Morgawr since they claim that the only evidence of its existence would be a mere number of unclear amateur pictures and word of mouth. Till the time when bones or the actual Morgawr will show itself to an accredited scientific mind, its existence will remain a myth. Morgawr may just have to continue to show itself to the lucky few that may believe or may simply be caught of guard.
There is a website that describes the Morgawr and numerous other creatures of Cryptozoology in detail, this website is called: Unknown Creatures and it may be found at this url: http://www.unknown-creatures.com
