More on Caddy

Victoria's beloved Caddy the serpent may have moved north
By Judith Lavoie, timescolonist.com

Cadborosaurus, the sea serpent beloved by Victoria residents, may have left the balmy waters of Cadboro Bay and moved north, video images suggest.The film, showing undulating shapes, was shot by a fisherman in Nushagak Bay, Alaska.More likely, the images show that Caddy has many relatives, said Paul LeBlond, an ocean scientist and professor emeritus at the University of British Columbia. LeBlond is also a cryptozoologist who has spent decades trying to prove the existence of B.C.'s equivalent of the Loch Ness monster.
Extract: There are two schools of thought about Caddy's pedigree. Some believe he has a sea mammal background and others put him in the marine reptile category.LeBlond does not understand why some find it difficult to accept that there are ocean creatures that have not yet been identified.A recent census of marine life, involving 80 countries, found 5,000 new species."There's still a lot to be discovered," LeBlond said.Caddy and his family are not necessarily "leftovers" from previous millenniums, but could be descendants, LeBlond suggested."Every animal in the ocean has ancestors," he said.
