Virtually everybody’s heard about the Loch Ness monster but Nessie isn’t the only lake cryptid in the world. It has a lesser-known Canadian cousin, called Ogopogo.
Ogopogo is said to inhabit the waters of Okanagan Lake in British Columbia and new sightings have been reported every year since 1872.
In native folklore, Ogopogo has been present even longer and local tribes made a habit of avoiding certain areas of the lake for fear of the monster dragging them to their deaths.
The first white settlers came to believe Ogopogo was real when several of their horses were mysteriously pulled down to the watery depths.
