The Champ is a large snake-like creature with a small, flat head about 10 to 30 feet long. It has a long sinuous neck with one or more humps on its dark brownish-olive body. The reports seem to describe the creature resembling a plesiosaur.
Champ inhabits Lake Champlain on the Vermont/Quebec/New York border. It is the largest lake in Vermont and the fourth largest freshwater lake in the Unnited States, extending west into the New York State and north into Canada. It is 125 miles in length and can go up to 400 feet deep.
It has been sighted since the 1600s.
There have been photographs of the creature but no conclusive evidence have ever been found. If there are really monsters, there would have to be at least a few hundred to keep the group alive. But how can these creatures live in the lake with only an occasional sighting? Scientists have also discovered an underwater wave in Lake Champlain called a seiche that can thrown debris from the bottom of the lake to the surface, making it seem like there was a creature. It could also be a small primitive whale that has adapted to the fresh water environment.
