The sea serpent is an aquatic creature found in several seas around the world including the Atlantic, Pacific, and Mediterranean Sea. Reaching over a hundred feet long with a horse-like head and snake-like body, the sea serpent is a fearsome looking creature. Despite this, no Sea Serpent has ever been known to hurt a human, despite Muggle stories of encounters with the beasts. It rises in humps out of the water as it swims.[1]

Curiously, the world's best known sea serpent, the Loch Ness Monster, is not actually a sea serpent. It is a Kelpie whose favourite form is that of a Sea Serpent.

A sea serpent from Cromer was slain by Glanmore Peakes.[2]

Apparently related to the sea serpent is the lake serpent, of which one known variety, the Selma of Norway, exists.[3]
