Lake Monsters - Nessie and Ogopogo

Lake Monsters - Nessie and Ogopogo - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Dec 27, 2006
( Rating: 1 Star Rating)

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.

Do You Believe in Lake Monsters?

  • Yeah! I even have pics!
  • No way. There's no such thing as lake monsters
  • Maybe Nessie is real, but not the others.
  • No, but I'll be on the look-out for 'em, just in case.

Kaitlyn Age: 12  Bio: he was born with a silver spoon in her mouth. Her mother, Jessica Cadice was truly a woman with a heart of gold. while her husband, Anderson, a secret agent working for the English Spies Association. They own a Modern mansion in england.  Kaitlyn in the story, is explained with her personality and relationship with the butler, cook, maid, and others. Chapter 1  Kate was a girl of 12 years old. Kaitlyn, her name to be prefered, Woke up in the middle of the night. sweeping her covers to the side, she stepped out of bed, opening her window to breathe the fresh night air. Contrary to what she expected, the air was misty and very musty. She covered her nose. "In england, why must we be inside clouds at 1 am?  Kaitlyn went downstairs of the blackwell mansion. Her silk slippers made a rough sound over the dark grey carpet on the balcony. Looking over to the kitchen. She smells A fresh Peach pie. She automatically knew who made it. Mr. Baxster, the butler, loved pies. He owned a shop 1 street corner away from the mansion. Kaitlyn went down stairs to find the cook, Miss Laquel, obviously making a variety of pies. Pies scattered everywhere, Kaitlyn scratched her head. Why would mss Laquel make this many cakes at 1 am?   Chapter 2 Kaitlyn decided to investigate the scene. She heard her father talking about "investigating a scene" one time. She Looked for Any clues. She found a Silk blue notebook with a lock on it. She suspected Miss Laque had the key. Nonetheless, It was probably important, so she Hid it in the kitchen cupboard behind the stinky cheese spices. Dad never used them. Mom said they were taking up space. Dad always said he'll get rid of them soon. "Soon=Never. What a waste." She said, holding her nose. She opened one pie. "Ugh! What a horrible smell!" She screamed. The cook rubbed her eyes. "Huh? Who.. Nevermind. Now the pies. " Where was Kaitlyn? Hiding in the window curtain. "Mr. Baxster will LOVE these Pie samples for his bakery." She said in a suggestively Happy voice. She ran upstairs to her room to get dressed, after putting the pies To rest in her Home-sewed bag. She put the two samples of the stinky pie in the mouse trap. And then, she put the rest in the garden. Kaitlyn peeked out of the curtain. She held it up to make her way into the living room. "Roses eat pie?" She looked at the plants. "Ahh. Fertilizer Pie. Bón Appetit, flowers."   Chapter 3 Looking at the flowers covered in fertilizer, she realised she was wasting time. The clock said  I:oII which mother taught her was 1:02 am. She decided to catch up on sleep. It was to early to be awake. She ran up the stair to her bedroom. She ockked the door. tHen she realised.. Her bedroom balcony had been open. There were no signs or anyone in in the home. "Oh, it must be the wind" She shrugged . Which was quite reasonable because this wind was stronger than a mountain lion. Particularly tonight.  She put her robe on and made her way to the castle-like balcony. "What a dark night. Starry, beautiful" She lay there, on the balcony. "What a-" *yawn* She fell asleep on the balcony.
