Mystery creature shocks locals and tourists after being spotted in Venice canal

The creature can be seen swimming in the murky waters of the Venice canals as the world famous gondolas cruise past.

In the footage, the ray appears to glide under the surface of the waters of the popular holiday destination as people watched on in amazement.

Many insist the fish was a stingray or manta ray.

However, both of those creatures are not known to live in waters in Venice.

The stingray would have had to swim across the Mediterranean sea, which is their nearest natural habitat to the Italian city.

The gondolier behind the footage, known only as Giorgio, insisted he had never seen anything like it in the city’s canals before.

He said he was drifting down the iconic Grand Canal when he saw the animal among the gondolas, apparently undisturbed by the boats above.

Giorgio explained: "I was on my way back when I caught a glimpse of something in the water, and I was intrigued so I followed the trail.

"I grabbed my camera because I could see there was something in the water but couldn't film it too well, and I thought maybe it was a cormorant.

"But then when I got nearer and it suddenly turned and went past me and I realised it was a ray."

He added: "I don't think it is rare to see something like this in Thailand, but I'm 50 and have been doing this job for 20 years and I've never seen anything like it."
