It’s Champy! Must have hitched a ride on a trailered boat from Champlain.
It looks like some kind of escaped “dragon/lizard” like an iguana.

I’m pretty sure it’s a mink. I’ve seen several mink the past few weeks and none for years. I got up close to one the other day in my kayak. He turned and looked at me like he was going to jump into the kayak with me. I was thinking that if he jumped in I was jumping out. They look cute but I think they’re mean little critters.

Looks like a sea monster.

Or like a turtle facing right or some sort of bird with it's head down facing left.

I think that’s it. A little like the “ is it a crow or a cat?” viral photo on the Internet.

Sorry, is not me.

My guess ..... looking at the line on the right rear which appears to be the primary wing feathers ..... this is a mallard duck .... slightly out of focus ... probably a female ..... with its' head down under the water. What you see on the left side is the duck's neck.

we saw it heading in to Fay's sunday afternoon. Looks like a toy trex, we circled back to snag it and it disappeared under water! then when we motored away it popped back up. There was a lwsa runabout in the area and a handful of people on a dock on that little island. Someone playing a joke...?

I saw it too, and posted videos on IBOLW.

It could have been an RC toy, but it wasn't a static floating toy in the water.

Its head was as large as mine, it wasn't a small thing.

it would go under, then come back up in a different spot. It would turn it's head left and right.

It didn't look like any Otter or turtle that I've ever seen.

This is a good shot of it. I couldn't get anything very clear as I was trying to keep the boat under control.

When I was pre-teens, I used to row past that place, drooling for the day I was old enough (and able) to buy it. What a view it has. This was back in the 50's and it just seemed abandoned.

Glad the place has a new life.

Site has photos of the inside and a link to the webcam looking toward our camp on Welch.

Back to the Glendale lake monster, we go in and out of there most every day and have yet to spot the creature. Maybe only certain people properly medicated can see it.
