Twitterati makes speculations

The video was taken from far at the Yichang, Central China's Hubei Province where this black creature can be seen moving in the water. Twitter users started making their own speculations on the creature. A user shared the footage on this Twitter handle with the caption, "Recently, in Yichang, Hubei, netizens photographed mysterious animals in the Three Gorges Dam area. The body size is several meters long and moves like a snake in the water. Some people speculate that this is a large snake that lives in the water".  A twitter user wrote, "Fancy a distraction? China may have discovered its own version of the Loch Ness Monster".

Another user doubted and wrote a comment on the video saying, "I like how people always go back to this. Why can't it just be a modern-day animal? Or.. a VFX artist trolling?". A third user wrote, " We all want to make this as amazing as a creature, but it probably looks just a tarp. It's pretty cool". One more user replied to other users saying that the creature doesn't look like a snake, as snakes do not swim like that and its tail is not even like a saltwater crocodile so the animal is something that is different from actual sea animals. A user tweeted, "Why is every image of a mysterious monster always so blurry?", raising a question that seemed valid to many.
