Lake Erie Monster

by Dye Mad Yarns


With a name like Lake Eeeeeerie, how could there not be something mysterious lurking in the deep? 

The Lake Erie creature itself is most often described as being a 9 to 12 m (30 to 40 ft) long undulating beast, and very serpentine in appearance, with a dark gray or black coloration. Sightings of something very bizarre lurking in Lake Erie go back centuries. The natives of the region told of a great water spirit dwelling within the lake called the Oniare, a huge, horned water serpent with venomous breath that prowled the area and capsized boats. Perhaps the first known recorded modern encounter with the creature allegedly occurred in 1793, when a captain aboard the sloop Felicity spotted a snake-like creature more than 16 feet long moving through the water while duck hunting near Sandusky, Ohio.

Her name is Bessie.

Lake Erie Monster is lake blue-green, with olive drab green, ending with searing orange for the eyes that lurk below!
