Sea Serpent Redux Again

To the Staff at Parkeology.com, I wasn’t going to say anything, but then Scales had to open his big mouth about being left out, and I felt obliged to write in with yet another correction to your ill-conceived article about WDW Sea Serpents.  Scales feels slighted because he is the largest Sea Serpent on property.

The circus was […]
