In the dark depths of our lakes and oceans, there may lurk some scary creatures. Kidzworld takes a look at lake monsters like the Loch Ness monster and Ogopogo that have people flocking to see em.

In the deep, dark depths of our lakes and oceans, there may lurk creatures far scarier than Godzilla or King Kong. There have been sightings around the world, but no real confirmation of the existence of these under-water dwellers. Take a look at a few of the most famous lake monsters that have people swarming to catch a glimpse of them.

Lake Monsters - The Loch Ness Monster (Nessie)

The Loch Ness Monster, fondly known as Nessie, is believed to live in Loch Ness, a lake in Scotland. Sightings of Nessie date as far back as the 6th century, when an Irish monk caught sight of the monster while visiting the area. Although Nessie had always been a legend in Scotland, it wasn't until 1934 when Dr. Robert Kenneth Wilson got a photo of the legendary lake monster that the tourist industry really boomed. Since then, the Loch Ness monster myth has attracted tourists from around the world. You can even take an hour-long submarine ride in search of the famous lake monster! 

Lake Monsters - Canada's Lake Monster

The Ogopogo is Canada's claim to lake-monster fame and is found in British Columbia's Okanagan Lake. Originally known as N'ha-a-tik (Na-ha-ha-tik) by the natives of the area, Ogopogo hasn't received the same international fame as Nessie, but there are records of Ogopogo sightings dating as far back as 1872. The Ogopogo lake monster is said to resemble Nessie, the Loch Ness monster. Could they somehow be related?

Lake Monsters - Lake Champlain's Champ

In July 1883, Sheriff Nathan H. Mooney looked out over New York's Lake Champlain and saw a gigantic water serpent about 50 yds (46 m) away. And so began the search for Champ, New York's very own lake monster. The very first sightings of Champ though, date back to the early 1600s when Samuel de Champlain saw the lake monster in the Canadian province of Quebec. Lake Champlain actually overlaps into the state of Vermont and the province of Quebec, and Champ has been seen in all three places. Champ has been seen more than 240 times in the past 100 years. Lake Champlain's lake monster is described as having one to two humps on its back, is 15 to 25 feet long and is dark in color. Some say, however, that Champ is nothing more than a giant lake sturgeon!

Lake Monsters - Nahuelito of Argentina

South America is also home to a legendary lake monster. Nahuelito has been seen in Nahuel Huapi Lake in the Patagonian Mountains of Argentina since 1897. Tourist towns around the lake wasted no time jumping on the Nahuelito bandwagon. You can find Nahuelito lake monster T-shirts and posters everywhere. More than 100,000 people flock to the Patagonian Mountains each season in hopes of seeing the lake monster.

Have you had a lake monster encounter? If so, about it!

1I do not believe in lake monsters, only in Nessie. It would be cool if there were lake monsters but it would not be cool if they eat you.

1All right, I kind of agree with Nick because it would be cool if there were lake monsters but not if they eat people. I mean that's just wrong.
