The following is the video of the “Seljord Serpent” or Selma, which was taken at Lake Seljord, Norway, credited to Adam Davies and Andrew Sanderson.

Extreme Expeditions’ Adam Davies replies to the comments, questions, and criticisms:
Thank you to everyone who has commented on the Seljord Serpent footage so far.
To answer a few basic questions:
1/ The footage is shaky because Andy was stood up in a boat when he took it. It’s shot on a hand held camera. We had hardly any money, so we did the best with the equipment we had.
2/ There is good, indeed very good science behind it. The film has been professionally analysed (see my book for details). Most importantly, the hydrophone emissions recorded by another team member (which were made AT THE SAME TIME we filmed the serpent) were analysed by no less than the prestigious Marine Research Institute in Bergen. They concluded they were from an unknown species. As UI said, the film has been shown on British TV.
3. Lastly, and as a general note, I don’t mind at all when people say they don’t agree with my opinions, or that they can’t see things in the water etc. What I don’t like, and don’t expect to put up with, is the vitriol that sometimes pours from this site. I don’t expect people to agree with me, but to look at an image on Loren’s site and then describe it as a “fraud,” thereby impinging the character of the person behind it, is disgraceful. I expect fair criticism, but I also expect a little more support from fellow cryptozoologists.
P.S. Looking forward to going to Russia with the CFZ team. Gregorily has got some good leads. Been working hard on it. Will give you an update soon. Adam Davies, June 9, 2008.
