    Is this Iceland’s Loch Ness Monster? Amateur footage shows ‘giant serpent’ slinking its way through lake By <br /> Updated: 15:28 GMT, 8 February 2012 <br>

    <br /><br>Iceland’s equivalent to the Loch Ness monster has apparently been pictured on footage taken by an amateur cameraman. <br><br>The video, taken by Hjörtur Kjerúlf at the glacial river Jökulsá í Fljótsdal, east Iceland, appears to show the serpent-like monster known as Lagarfljótsormurinn, or Lagarfljót’s Worm.<br><br>Belief in the existence of the worm, which is said to reside in the lake Lagarfljót, can be sourced back to at least 1345.

    Sightings of the beast are considered a bad omen. <br> Does this footage prove the existence of Lagarfljót’s Worm?

    Amateur cameraman Hjörtur Kjerúlf captured the scene at the glacial river Jökulsá í Fljótsdal, east Iceland<br> <br>Legends say the monster began life as a tiny worm which a girl placed on a ring of gold to make the it grow, according to Iceland Review Online.
    <br><br>But when the owner of the ring returned she found that instead of making the gold grow, the worm had grown into a giant snake.<br> RELATED ARTICLES

Sceptics say it’s probably just a fishing net which has freed itself from the thawing ice<br> <br>The worm is believed to be at least 91m (300ft) long, with many humps.

    It has sometimes been reported outside the water, lying coiled up or slithering into the trees.<br><br>Sometimes it is said to be as long as the lake itself, 30km (19 miles).<br><br>Kjerúlf’s video was first shown by the Icelandic national broadcaster, RÚV.

    Sceptics say it could show a torn fishing net which blew into the river and froze. <br><br>As the ice thawed, it is thought, the net may have come loose and the ‘worm’ wound its way through the water.  <br> <br> <br>
