    There have been thousands of sightings over the last few hundred years, but no bodies, harpoonings, fossils etc. however the megamouth shark was only discovered in 1975. there have been only 50 or so confirmed sightings of the shark, and only a few carcasses have been found washed ashore. (It is so rare, Wikipedia lists its conservation status as ''data deficient'' ) .

    These people describe the same thing.. which is this:

    Stegosaurus-like head sticking out the water (ruling out any oarfish) undulating humps (no other reptile undulates vertically) described to be 100+ long. So what are your thoughts on this controversial cryptid?

    Stegosaurus (meaning "roof lizard" or "covered lizard" in reference to its bony plates) is a genus of armored stegosaurid dinosaur. They lived during the Late Jurassic period (Kimmeridgian to early Tithonian), some 155 to 150 million years ago in what is now western North America.

    An oldie, but still a very famous figure and story in the realm of cryptozoology;

    His Facebook, which I managed to track down from Pipl.com.
    https://www.facebook.com/edward.mccleary

    He's reluctant to talk about the event though. I wouldn't expect much.

    Credulence: one of Edward's friends washed to shore a week after the tragedy, identified as 14-year old Bradford Jay Rice. He had apparently drowned, but the circumstances of this were not stated.

    It seems that oarfish are plankton eaters.
    If the largest seem to consume the smallest, where-then is the niche for the great sea-serpent with massive teeth?

    ...............
    the above sketch brought "puff the magic dragon" to mind.

    According to Edward McCleary, people.

    He didn't say it had ''massive teeth''. Just ''sharp teeth''.

    So every single witness is a deluded liar?

    They can exist in the flesh, but I believe unicorns and vampires live in our imagination.
