Monster Quest Finally Found Something!





I love Monster Quest, the show on the Discovery Channel that searches for cryptid creatures around the globe. The only problem? The searchers rarely find anything. Until now.

Okanagan Lake in British Columbia, Canada has long been said to harbor a Nessie-like lake monster. Known as the Ogopogo, it was first spotted in 1872 and has been photographed and filmed many times since. Unfortunately, the evidence of its existence has never proven conclusive.

But that may have changed. A Monster Quest crew recently discovered an unusual creature at the bottom of Okanagan Lake, in an underwater cave on the west side of Rattlesnake Island. Some say the beast may be a baby Ogopogo. According to one eyewitness, "It was all curled up. The features were really hard to see. You could see a little head tucked in and a straight tail with no fins. It's a huge mystery. We have no idea what it is."

The creature has been shipped to the University of Guelph for DNA tests. Unless one of us can sneak in and steal the results, we'll have to wait until the Monster Quest episode airs in February to find out if an Ogopogo has been discovered!

Until then, you can read more here.

Kitty--NJ is FILLED with oddness. You should check out the magazine Weird New Jersey--it's cheap and filled with local folklore, ghost stories, pictures of abandoned buildings and strange roadside attractions.

They have a website, www.weirdnj.com

kidnapping a possible monster seems like a REALLY dumb thing to do. Its probably Nessie's little cousin, and she's gonna come destroy them to get it back. Excellent!

awesome!!! when my family went to Kelowna for summer break, at our hotel there were ogopogo tours and look out binoculars/stations on every floor. Rumour has it, that ogopogo is a cross between an earwig, and an orca whale... HmmmM....?????

I can honestly say I've never heard of an ogopogo. Loch Ness monster, yes (who hasn't heard of Nessie?), but never an ogopogo. It has a weird name.

What about Champ, the supposed monster of Lake Champlain? There's a lot of controversy about it.

They got their DNA sample back and it was linked to a type of Salmon that had deteriated so much it was unrecognizable. Once again, MonsterQuest has come up empty handed!!!!

False alarm the dna test said that it was a salmon that was just too decomposed to identify monster quest season 3 episode 10 was a good run though
