Well, no one was in any hurry to walk out there and free the dolphins, or sharks. Eventually we called the sheriff's department, who put us in touch with Texas Parks & Wildlife, who sent out a game warden to assess the situation.
However, before the game warden could arrive, an unidentified hero appeared in the water. He was making his way toward the wreckage and carried something in his hands. I was not close enough to him to get a good picture but this is what I got.
Who was this mystery man? Was it even a man at all? My first thought was that it could be Bigfoot. The way it moved and looked back at the camera reminded me of a picture of Bigfoot.
The idea of it being Bigfoot is ridiculous because everyone knows Bigfoot has never been spotted on the Texas Gulf Coast, nor does he carry a weapon. Besides, I am on the record as not being a Bigfoot believer. But who could it be? I have now concluded that this mystery hero was indeed Aquaman. Note these two artist's rendering of Aquaman and note the similarities with the Mystery Man.
Notice that Aquaman could actually walk in the water on legs, he doesn't have just fins. Also, the mystery man is carrying a weapon of some sort, just like Aquaman. Laugh if you want, but isn't venturing out to save dolphins exactly the kind of thing that Aquaman would do?
