What to do when you see a snake in a bucket
In a bid to stem the decline of the giant sea serpent, experts are using some of the most advanced technology available to track and track them down.
A team of researchers in New Zealand have captured video of a snake emerging from a bucket and then climbing into the water before disappearing back into the sea.
In a video of the creature, you can see the head bobbing up and down as the snake climbs out of the bucket.
The team captured the footage using a special camera and camera-tracking software called ROV.
They said they could see the snake climb out of a bucket about six feet (2.8 metres) down into the ocean.
The video shows the snake swimming through the water towards the surface, which could indicate that it is about to come out.
They are now working to identify the snake and determine if it can be captured.
The experts believe they have captured the largest snake in the world and said they were able to track the creature from a depth of about three metres (10 feet) using the ROV camera.
