New 'Champ' Video?

A video has surfaced that may show a supposed view of 'Champ', the underwater cryptid associated with Lake Champlain.

On another note, 'Champ' researcher Katy Elizabeth continues her exhaustive study and investigation of the elusive cryptid.

The owner of the video, a 33-year-old Navy veteran and IT student who provided a full name but asked to remain anonymous, told Cryptozoology News that the sighting took place back in late July.

” I had placed a motion activated camera trap at the water’s edge. At 4:00 a.m., in the darkness, it recorded video of an unusual animal,” he said.

The 31-second-long video file, which he titled Champ 2016, shows footage taken by two different cameras in a split screen containing something floating or swimming through the dark water.

“The head, similar in morphology to an alligator head, can be seen moving through the water. Only the top half appears visible, also similar to how an alligator moves it on the water’s surface with only eyes and nostrils exposed,” he told Cryptozoology News. “Deep eye ridges, vertical pupil, very similar to an alligator except for a protrusion on the snout between the eyes. A snout crest possibly? The nostrils seem more to point more forward than an alligators”

The Vermont resident claims he has had another sighting of this creature before, but that he did not report it because he lacked the evidence to support it.

And, he says, even though this could be something as unusual as a reptile with a snout crest or simply a beaver moving branches, he wants others to express their serious opinion about the video.

“I can prove the location of the video by matching all the footage from the camera to an actual location, but will only do so for a serious researcher who has credentials sufficient to persuade the scientific community,” he said.

Champ is the name of an unproven giant water reptile reputed to live in Lake Champlain, between New York, Vermont, and part of Quebec, Canada.

In September 2015, two people in Chittenden County, Vermont, told Cryptozoology News they saw a dinosaur-like creature swimming in the waters of Lake Champlain.

Vergennes is named after the Frenchman Charles Gravier, Comte de Vergennes, who helped the rebels during the American Revolutionary War. The city has a population of 2,600. - Vermont Navy Veteran Captures Video of Champ Monster
