Wolf Pond Giant Snake?

 Wolf Pond Reptile

Wolf Pond is a  fishing lake in Dauphin County, Pennsylvania.A 30 foot(10 metres) long creature is said to live there. Last reported in the 1800’s.  It's described as black with yellow bands and a green head, and measured about 6 feet ( 2 metres)  wide.One fisherman was said to have panicked on seeing it and he tried to hit it with an oar.The creature capsized his boat before disappearing back into the lake.It is mentioned in a book by  Charles Skinner “ Buried Treasure and Storied Waters” written in the 1900s.

It appeared to be a huge snake. Snakes are present in the area but none that large.Could it have been an aberration ,a one off that grew very large? No recent sightings have been recorded

Kootenay Lake Creature


 Kootenay Lake Monster

Kootenay Lake is  located in British Columbia, Canada. It is part of the Kootenay River.

Its  65 miles (104kms) long and approximately 3 miles (5 kms) wide.It varies in depth from 33 feet (approx 10 metres)    to a maximum of 490 feet ( 160 metres) . Large enough to house a few monsters.

In  October 1900 a Captain WJ Kane reported seeing a lake monster in the lake. He described it as being large and bulky.  A 12 year old boy also saw something on October 10th 1900, on the shore of Kootenay Lake, George Goudereau saw a 12ft ( 4 metres) creature that looked like an alligator  crawl  out of Crawford Bay and made its way towards a pile of rubbish on the shore. George watched  as it used its  claws and its snout to search through the pile. After a while it went back into the lake leaving a trail of tracks of  webbed feet. The creature  became known as the Canadian Alligator.

The area also has another prehistoric creature ,Big Bertha,a 10-foot Kootenay white sturgeon that weighs over 350 pounds. However sturgeon don’t normally come out of the water to forage.

If it was an alligator how did it get to Canada or survive the winter there? It could have been a pet released into the wild but again the winter weather would surely have killed it.

No recent sightings are recorded but other lakes in British Columbia have had sightings of similar creatures so the mystery remains.
