NBC NATIONAL NEWS — Iceland is buzzing over a water creature that looks a lot like the Loch Ness Monster.
This video was shot a week ago, and it shows what looks like a swimming worm. Some believe could be Iceland's legendary sea monster called the ‘River Worm’.
The creature is seen twisting in the river.
The legendary ‘River Worm’ is the most well-known monster in Icelandic folklore, first mentioned in 1345.
