Loch Ness ain't got nothin' on our Great Lakes when it comes to underwater monsters and giant creatures. So far, every one of our five Great Lakes are thought to house some sort of giant monsters or as-yet unidentified creatures.

Let's take 'em one lake at a time, all according to northernontario.travel.....

Loch ness has 'Nessie'.....Lake Erie has 'Bessie'. She's a giant serpent-like monster, brown, gray or copper colored, sometimes showing fins.

The Ojibway legends say there is a giant reptile, or serpent creature with large horns that rules the waters of Lake Huron. They call it "Mishebeshu" which means 'great lynx' and it dwells in an underwater den at the mouth of the Serpent River. There are many tales of this creature and if you visit the area, you wouldn't have any problem finding some old-timers to tell you about their - and others - experiences with this creature.
