I grew up, and still live, near Lake Champlain. Since childhood I’ve had a mild fascination with Champ, the Lake Champlain Monster.
Some believe that Champ may be a plesiosaur similar to “Nessie”, claiming the two lakes have much in common. Like Loch Ness, Lake Champlain is over 400 feet (120 m) deep, and both lakes were formed from retreating glaciers. Believers also claim both lakes support fish populations large enough to feed a supposed sea or lake monster.
