Most of us have heard of Nessie, the purported creature-in-residence in Loch Ness, Scotland, but what about the monsters of America? According to Weather.com, the United States has its own lake monster named Champ, who lives in Lake Champlain near Vermont.
Champ has been been "spotted" hundreds of times, and is described as being between 20-80 feet with a serpentine body, distinct humps and a dog-like face. The monster has made waves throughout history. Champ is said to have first been spotted by French explorer Samuel Champlain, sought after by P.T. Barnum and is even protected New York and Vermont state governments.
