Cryptid : Champ, The Lake Champlain Sea Monster

Champ, or Champy, is the name given to a reputed lake monster living in Lake Champlain, a natural freshwater lake in North America, partially situated across the U.S.-Canada border in the Canadian province of Quebec and partially situated across the Vermont-New York border. While there is no scientific evidence for the cryptid’s existence, there have been over 300 reported sightings. The legend of the monster is considered a draw for tourism in the Burlington, Vermont area.

Like the Loch Ness Monster, while most regard Champ as legend, others have speculated it is possible such a creature does live deep in the lake, possibly a relative of the plesiosaur, an extinct group of aquatic reptiles.

Cryptid Sighting : Chupacabra, Mexico

A farmer in Mexico says a Chupacabra has killed 49 of his goats. He has invited the press who have provided these photos which show the many goats with their throats bit/slashed as well strange puncture/suction marks on the bodies as you can examine in the photos. The farmer, Juan Sanchez, from the state of Chihuahua, claims many other farms have had this problem for decades, and this is the third such attack in July alone.

Check out these photos. Call me crazy, I drive trucks at night, I have, just one time, witnessed a chupacabra. Fit the typical description to a t. It was eating roadkill or something it killed near the middle of the road, and ran off to the brush after my lights shined on the thing. Red eyes, claws and almost seeming to walk on its two back legs. Not perfectly or without using the front, but it had a twisted hunch on it. I see coyotes and manged ones all the time. This was not that. Anyways, cool story.

The Onza is a species of wild cat considered to be a legend and one of the numerous creatures studied by cryptozoology. It can also refer to the jaguarundi (P. yaguarondi). It is known as a type of cryptid.

In 1938 and again in 1986, animals in Sinaloa were shot and identified as onzas (the legendary cat that resembles a cougar, not the jaguarundi). Only one viable specimen has been taken: A rancher named Andres Murillo in January 1986 saw what he thought was a jaguar attacking him while deer hunting, so he shot it. It turned out not to be a jaguar, and he brought it to Vega, who owned a nearby ranch. He told Murillo that the specimen he had greatly resembled the onza his father had shot in the 1970s, the skull of which he still had. The specimen was a female that weighed 60 lb (27 kg). The body, not including the tail, was 45 inches (1.1 m) long, and the tail added another 23 inches (58 cm). The cat had the appearance of a cougar with a very long, thin body and long, thin dog-like legs. It had eaten recently because deer had been found in its stomach. These animals were much like cougars but had lighter frames, longer legs, and longer ears and were spotted.

There is another legend that is not well known by cryptozoologists. According to that legend, there are two species of jaguarundi living in Mexico. One of them is usually called onza and the other one is referred by any other local name.
