The Octoman, also known as the Indescribable Octo-Man, was a cryptid reportedly seen by at least five people on the shores of the Ohio River in the winter of 1959. The world at large first learned about this moist monstrosity on January 29th, 1959, in article published in the Cincinnati Post & Times-Star tantalizingly titled: “What Is It? ‘Monster’ Churns Up the Ohio.” Beneath it the equally intriguing sub-heading read: “Anyone missing an ‘indescribable monster’ that swims?”
It is very similar to the Octosquatch.
The creature was described as a quasi-humanoid cephalopod. It had a hulking body, pale greenish-gray skin, and four tentacle-like arms. It was also described as having "rolls of fat".
There are several explanations as to what the creature could be. Theories include:
- An undiscovered species (a Cryptid)
- A hoax
- The amphibious beast was first reported to Ohio’s Clermont County and New Richmond police by an unnamed man who claimed that “something came out of the river” approximately 4-miles from New Richmond. According to the spooked eyewitness, the alien life-form he saw was utterly “indescribable”.
