(NEWSER) – A cell phone video has revived the legend of “Champ,” the monster long rumored to reside in Lake Champlain, ABC News reports. Nessie’s less-famous North American cousin has been spotted 300 times, if you believe the locals, but only photographed once before, in 1977. The new video shows an indistinct black shape swimming across the water, then diving under it.
Cryptozoologists are ecstatic. “If this pans out, this will be the most convincing moving picture of this creature,” said one specializing in lake monsters. But skeptics abound. Local biologists think it’s likely a deer or moose. Even the video’s poster isn’t convinced. He recently disabled comments on YouTube. “I put this up because it was strange,” he wrote, “not because I think it is ‘Champ.’

TOUR GUIDE GEORGE EDWARDS SNAPS PIC OF 'CREATURE'
(NEWSER) - Yet another hazy, distant photo has emerged of a creature swimming around Loch Ness.
This one comes from a Nessie tour guide who apparently photographed the mythical, humped monster in Scotland's most popular freshwater loch.
"It was slowly moving up the loch towards Urquhart Castle and it was a dark grey color," George Edwards tells the Daily Mail .
"It was quite a fair way from the boat, probably about half a mile away but it’s difficult to tell in water." More»
This is not the photo. This is a sculpture in Eau Claire, Wisconsin.
