(ORDO NEWS) — The monster from Lake Champlain, nicknamed Champ, is not as famous in the world as Nessie from the Scottish Loch Ness, but this is the most famous sea monster in America.
Lake Champlain is located on the US-Canada border. This is a large lake with a length of 172 km and a maximum depth of 122 meters. Potentially, large marine animals can live in it.
According to numerous eyewitness reports that regularly come in today, Champ has a small head on a long neck and a massive body with flippers, that is, he looks like Nessie.
The earliest known sighting of a mysterious animal in Lake Champlain dates back to 1609 and is by the man from whom the lake takes its name. In his diary, he wrote that he saw in the lake a snake-like creature about 6 meters long, as thick as a barrel and with the head of a horse.
In the same place, he noted that the local Indians are well acquainted with this creature and gave him the name “chuserow”.
Over the past more than 400 years, hundreds of people have observed this strange creature, but only a few managed to photograph it, and only one person managed to get a more or less clear picture.
The photograph below is the only known photograph of Champa that actually shows a very oddly shaped animal.
Lake Champlain, unlike Loch Ness, was never explored with the intention of finding a “lake monster” in it, and the rare cryptozoologists did not succeed until Kathy Elizabeth, a cryptozoologist from Vermont, recently arrived here.
On September 10, 2022, she sailed across the lake in a boat with a sonar, and he fixed a large floating object at a depth, which, presumably, is the same monster.
Cathy Elizabeth has spent the last decade studying this phenomenon and has been preparing for this trip for a long time, equipping her Kelpie II boat with a host of equipment designed to possibly detect the cult cryptid.
Her sonar records show a long object moving across Lake Champlain at a depth of approximately 13 meters.
The anomaly, according to Elizabeth, seems to be some kind of living creature that has something long in front of the body, possibly a neck.
Cathy Elizabeth compared the appearance and movement of this anomaly to a school of small fish, sturgeon, groupers and even whales. And none of them corresponded to the anomaly recorded by the locator.
