Iceland's Worm Monster

Video footage that allegedly show Icelandic equivalent of the Loch Ness monster is published by the Icelandic national broadcaster.

The creature is filmed ​​by a local resident of the valley Fljotsdal, Hjortur Kjerulf. A snapshot is now seen by more than three million people.

While some claim that it is a fishing net, others think that this is a huge snake, and there are those who believe that it is a mythical giant worm dragon or serpentine that were believed to live in the lake Lagarflj├│t.

This creature is a part of Icelandic folklore, and the first story appeared in the 14th century.

In the case of a python or a similar large snake, the question is how come it is in the icy water, when it is known that these snakes live in tropical conditions.

Ring and the snake

According to legend, a girl was given a gold ring from her mother. She wanted for that ring to be big, so she could sell it for even greater price.

The mother told her to put a worm on it and then the ring will grow.

The girl did it and then closed the ring and the worms in a box. However, the next day the worm grew and broke the box, but the ring still remain small.

Frightened, the girl was thrown into the lake a creature and the ring, and that being continued to grow and kill humans and animals.
