    No alteration needed it looks like a sea serpent to me! :>)

    I saw the serpent before reading the caption!  It’s Ellie! (Elliot Bay Monster?) or Pugly (Puget Sound Monster?)

    I wouldn’t go around naming it (although Pugly made me laygh).  It appears to have to collar so that is somebody’s pet. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
