A pre-school teacher in New Orleans has been attempting to identify a strange animal that she filmed at a local park.
When Kim Frusciante visited New Orleans City Park's Sculpture Garden with her family recently, something moving in the nearby lagoon caught her attention.

Grabbing her phone, she filmed a short clip of a strange serpentine animal which seemed to undulate back and forth as it moved through the water.

Puzzled, she decided to post the video online to get a second opinion.

Before long, the mystery over the identity of the animal had ended up on local TV news.
"We looked into the water and saw a mysterious serpent-like creature," she told WGNO-TV.

"It is nothing I have seen before land or sea. The great people of the Internet seem to think it is a genetically modified carp fish created in a lab and released in City Park."

"It was quite long. I have a 4-year-old slightly smaller than it and it was weaving on the surface, and a lot of scales, the tail was red and it was swishing around aimlessly hanging out on the surface much longer than a normal fish."

Park officials have since launched an investigation into the sighting.

It isn't Bigfoot. So this dying fish is of no interest whatsoever.

Looked like a dying coi to me. Watched the video first then read posts. Glad to see everyone seems to agree. The mystery here is why are the "experts" always confused?
