Humanoid Aquatic Giants Reported in seas Surrounding Antarctica
Although these beings have been reported for decades, recent reports of a large number of sightings rumors circulated the world. All of these sightings report the existence of gigantic humanoid forms of life in the icy waters of Antarctica.
These creatures are referred to as Ningen (人間, ‘human beings’ in Japanese) and are consistently said to have a human-like shape, often with legs, arms, and even five-fingered hands.
However, reports do have some variation. Some have described them as having fins or a mermaid-like tail. Among the most visible facial features are the creature’s eyes and mouth, which are consistently described as human like (pictures can be found above and below).
This all begs the question: What are the mysterious creatures referred to as Ningen, and are they supernatural?
While there are many descriptions that try to depict the Ningen as clearly as possible, one of the most consistent features is the size of the Ningen.
According to numerous reports, these supermassive white-colored humanoid beings grow up to 30 meters.
Skeptics will say “so what… maybe it’s just some giant fish?”
However, according to reports—and countless videos posted online—these mystery beings are totally unlike any sort of fish that has been documented by modern zoology, science, or government agencies.
For example, one sighting mentions that crew members of a vessel traveling near Antarctica observed what they initially believed to be a submarine. However, when they approached the submerged object to gather more information, it became clear by the irregular shape of the object and its startling behavior that it was not made. When the crew approached the creature, it immediately vanished into the depths, almost as if it had been watching them. The descriptions given by the crew match up perfectly with descriptions of this cryptid from other sources.
Ningen have also been spotted in other areas, notably the Pacific and Atlantic oceans. Unfortunately, most of the sightings occurred at night, making the mystery beings extremely difficult to document or clearly capture on video, and leading to the conclusion that they are mostly nocturnal creatures. They may also hunt their prey, whatever it is they may feed on, at night, making it difficult to discover any patterns in their movement or habits.
So what information do we have about what these creatures may be?
Many skeptics consider the existence of the Ningen to be massive modern “urban legend”, despite the numerous eyewitnesses. Much of the early information about the Ningen goes back to series of posts in the online community “2channel”, where one member described seeing the giant humanoid creature while serving on a government research vessel. During this sighting, one of the beings rose up to the surface and approached the vessel from the depths, although it did not attack and soon vanished.
The topic soon attracted the attention from readers outside of these forums. This lead the Ningen to became popular among the paranormal research community as a whole
There are several theories offered by skeptics, including an albino whale, some sort of so far unknown species of giant aquatic non-human ape, a new species of giant manta ray, an aquatic sloth, some even argue how it could be an unknown alien species, and some religious observers believe that it could be a demon or giant as described in the Bible. However, it is difficult to believe that such a large animal could have gone undiscovered for so long.
