Hook Island is one of the Whitsunday Islands off the coast of the Australian state of Queensland. The island is almost completely uninhabited and quite rugged. In the early 1960s a man named Robert Le Serrec captured an image of a huge, tadpole-like creature near Hook Island.The picture was first published in March 1965. A detailed account of the case was written up by Heuvelmans (1968). It is claimed that Serrec and his family witnessed the creature on the lagoon floor after becoming wrecked on the Great Barrier Reef. There is no doubt that the image is real, but many people feel the event was hoaxed by Robert Le Serrec. It has been suggested that he used a weighted down plastic sheeting to create the illusion of a large sea snake.
