A huge mysterious creature with glowing eyes was chasing a fisherman's boat

A video of a mysterious glowing in the dark sea creature chasing a Brazilian fisherman's boat caused confusion among Internet users last week.

An unnamed fisherman filmed the chilling footage off the coast of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil's southernmost state. The video, shot late in the evening or at night, shows a fisherman swimming fast on a motor boat, and some large dark-colored creature with brightly glowing eyes is chasing the boat.

The creature regularly appears out of the water, keeping up with the speed of the boat, and seems to be deliberately chasing the fisherman.

Some believe that the video is a fake, and the creature was created using computer graphics. Others decided that, most likely, the fisherman somehow did not please the big seal.

Pedro Enrique Tunes Pereira, an expert at the National Council for Scientific and Technological Development of Brazil, believes that the fisherman was most likely pursued by a sea lion.

"Although the scene looks scary, the man was not in danger. This strange sea creature that jumped out in the middle of the dark is actually a pinniped seal or a sea lion."

"There are seven species of these animals in this state, some of them are terrifying in their size and appearance, for example, the leopard seal is an animal up to 4 meters long, which visits the region from time to time, and may have been caught on video."

"Pinnipeds are inquisitive by nature and often follow boats, especially at night," concluded Pereira. "Also, pinnipeds do have eyes that can glow in the dark."

However, this explanation did not satisfy everyone. Some netizens found it strange that a seal or a sea lion does not lag behind a boat racing at high speed, and that the creature jumped out of the water more like a dolphin than a seal.
