Recently, an unusual sight attracted attention in the Hudson River, which flows through the eastern region of New York State, USA: a large snake-like creature was photographed floating on the surface of the water.

For many years there have been reports of a similar creature in the Hudson River, sometimes accompanied by photographic evidence. However, journalists and local officials usually dismiss these sightings as mere driftwood or big fish.

In 2018, sonar technology detected a moving object about 14 feet (4.2 meters) long in the water column. Despite the initial intrigue, this phenomenon was later attributed to a rare and old sturgeon.

Could this be proof of the existence of a monster living in the deepest part of the Hudson River?

The sturgeon, which was once abundant in the Hudson a century ago, has since dwindled to near extinction, so meeting such a large specimen was a great stroke of luck –or at least it seemed so. Perhaps it wasn't a sturgeon after all.

This mysterious snake-like creature, dubbed "Kipsy", can often be seen in the Hudson River Valley, especially near the city of Poughkeepsie.

The last appearance of the alleged Kipsy occurred in the early hours of March morning, when Jo-Ann Martin took a photo and immediately shared it on her social media page, encouraging speculation and theories from fellow observers.

While some suggested that Martin had simply caught a piece of driftwood shaped like a snake, others humorously suggested a transatlantic visit by "Nessie", the famous Loch Ness monster.

However, the faction remains convinced that there is something substantial and mysterious about Hudson that ignores simple explanations such as sturgeon.

Original news

Recently, a peculiar sight captured attention in the Hudson River, which meanders through the eastern region of New York State, USA: a large, snake-like creature spotted floating on the water’s surface was photographed.

For years, reports of a similar entity have surfaced in the Hudson River, occasionally accompanied by photographic evidence. However, journalists and local officials have typically dismissed these sightings as mere snags or large fish.

In 2018, sonar technology detected a moving object measuring approximately 14 feet in length (4.2 meters) within the water column. Despite initial intrigue, this phenomenon was later attributed to a rare and elderly sturgeon.

Could this be proof of a monster living in the deepest section of the Hudson River?

Sturgeon, once plentiful in the Hudson a century ago, have since dwindled to near extinction, making encountering such a sizable specimen a stroke of remarkable fortune—or so it seemed. Perhaps it wasn’t a sturgeon after all.

Dubbed “Kipsey,” this enigmatic snake-like creature is frequently sighted in the Hudson River Valley, particularly near the city of Poughkeepsie.

The most recent sighting of the alleged Kipsey occurred one early morning in March, when Jo-Ann Martin captured a photo and promptly shared it on her social media page, encouraging speculation and theories from fellow observers.

While some speculated that Martin had merely captured a piece of driftwood resembling a serpentine form, others humorously suggested a transatlantic visit from “Nessie,” the famous Loch Ness Monster.

However, a faction remained convinced that there exists something substantial and mysterious within the Hudson, defying simple explanations like that of a sturgeon.
