Mexico Lake Monster?


Lake Monster or Something Else?

An intriguing story about a Lake monster in Mexico has been in the news.

New Loch Ness monster 'spotted' by swimmers with police now searching lake

Story by Christopher Sharp


Mexico are searching for a Loch Ness-style monster they say could be living in a reservoir near a dam in the city of Atizapan de Zaragoza. The creature has reportedly been seen by locals swimming in the lake. According to reports, the civic leaders and police have been inundated with sightings. One photo which is believed to show the monster has gone viral after being posted on the local town hall website. The photograph appears to reveal what appears to be a dark body which could have a fin or a curved back coming from the waters of Madin Dam Basin.

Local town hall officials have now ordered police to patrol the lake and find out the cause of the sightings. Local media quoted Atizapan Town Hall who said in a statement: "This fact adds to comments from residents of Atizapan, who assure that a dinosaur lives at the bottom of the dam, which protects the place.

Some believe it could be a huge crocodile or a large blob of faeces from sewage water.

Nevertheless, local authorities are taking the matter seriously and aim to get to the bottom of the sightings.”

From the local Paper:

Reports of a strange animal in the Madín Dam, the municipal police of Atizapán announced that they will do special rounds.

The municipality of Atizapán de Zaragoza, in the State of Mexico, declared that it has received news of several alleged sightings of a large animal in the Madín Dam. Presumably, the neighbors would point out that it is a “dinosaur”.

The strange report was made on March 19 through the municipality’s official Facebook account. According to the publication, local authorities received intriguing reports about an animal in the dam.Neighbors of the area surrounding the Madín Dam reported the sighting of a large silhouette in the depths of the aquatic body.

The government of Atizapán also pointed out that several inhabitants “say that a dinosaur dedicated to protecting the place lives at the bottom of the dam.” Therefore, the local government will carry out patrols around the dam: , others commented that for at least 30 years there have been suspicions of “a large carp” living in the dam,

Science however may have the answer.

 “It was found that the polluted water of the Madín Dam gave rise to embryolethality, embryotoxicity, congenital abnormalities, and oxidative stress on the common carp embryos.”.


I suspect a mutated large fish is the resident of the dam rather than a dinosaur. What do you think?
