Here's some info about the video.

Quote

The snake-like creature evidently wasn't shy; this footage was captured at the Three Gorges Dam Scenic Area, a popular tourist spot in Yichang City.

Reports suggest it was as thick as an average adult human's thigh - an accurate unit of measurement if ever there was - and was estimated to to be at least 10 feet long. It certainly seems like a powerful animal, swimming against the river current with ease.

Nearly two million people have watched the clip since it was made public and, as expected, theories abound as to just what the slithering monster could be. One social media one user wrote: "That must be a water snake."

As to the most rational explanation? Well, while Yichang forestry officials have so far declined to comment, it's most likely to be a Burmese python - a snake common to the area and, while they largely spend their time on land, are also excellent swimmers.

Yeah, I'd agree it is at least 10 feet (3 m) long. Though it appears to me that the "head" end of the thing never moves, which lead me to believe @Iilaa'mpuul'xem is correct, and it is just garbage stuck on a log, or something.

It moves very similar to plastic in a current, we have seen that a few times on here over the years.

Id' say it looks like a giant catfish. I remember Jeremy Wade doing a one of his episodes on the Mekong catfish, I'm at work so no access to maps or anything, but when catfish swims, the head tends to stay reasonably still while the body moves..

From what I have read China has some of the most polluted waterways in the world I doubt a Nessy or anything else for that matter could live in that water.

It's China.Some sort of floating garbage was the first thing I thought of considering how polluted much of their rivers are.

i have lots of wanna do back burner projects, one is to make an rc lake monster, something simple, but use it to gauge reaction, see how its described, size, color, etc, compare that to the prop.

God no, not in china, they would just kill it and carve it up and sell it saying it helps with erectile dysfunction or some other crap. They have no respect for life.
