The video is no longer working. Did it look like CGI?

If you click again on the words "Watch on YouTube" after you've initially clicked the video..you can watch it.

Yeah, it looked CGI to me but when I looked closer it looked like a toy in the water. The creature was not moving but just being tossed around by the water.

I kept waiting for the legs to move, and they didn't. So I'm thinking toy too. It would be simple to rig up a fishing line by way of sticks and rocks to make it look to move around a little.

Very good attempt, I'll give them that.

The feet are frozen it's not moving a plastic toy.

Pretty good one tho. Because of the movement of the water and the difficulty seeing the "creature" at first, it takes a few seconds to focus in on what you are supposed to see. I'll give it a thumbs up for effort.

I would say that, as a general rule of thumb, if a video is found during a random youtube search of the word "cryptid" you probably aren't going to find anything legit.

Down in Florida there are Iguanas and Monitor Lizzards both of which will take to water to avoid capture. Both lizzards readily jump in the water and swim well. Iguanas can get up to 4 or 5 feet long and Savannah Monitors and Nile Monitors can grow up to 5 feet long.

Yet both iguanas and monitors, if they get into the water, will still move their legs. This thing didn't.

Yep. Another one anyways. Clearer pictures of the original Abe posted about with link to the maker:

This one in the vid looks more something you'd pick up in a museum gift shop.

That's one of the rules for any footage of cryptids. It has to be blurry with a lot of movement of the camera.
