Reports Surface of Monster Lurking in Russian Lake Labynkyr

Another one for the lake monster fan.
For centuries, strange reports of a large, underwater creature have come from people living near the remote Lake Labynkyr in Siberia.

Now, a team of scientists from the Russian Geographical Society report they've found the skeletal remains of an animal that fits the description of the "Devil" of Lake Labynkyr, according to the Siberian Times.

"There have been all sorts of hypotheses about what kind of creature it could be: a giant pike, a … reptile or an amphibian," said research team geologist Viktor Tverdokhlebov, as quoted in the Siberian Times. "We didn't manage to prove or to disprove these versions … [but] we managed to find remains of jaws and skeleton of some animal."

The Russian research team, which included divers from the Russian Emergencies Ministry, camera people from the Sakha National Broadcasting Company and scientists from Yakutsk State University, was exploring the lake bottom to gather samples of water, plants and animals.

And on the bottom of the lake, using an underwater scanner, they discovered the large jawbone and skeleton, the Voice of Russia reports. Despite their claims, the team brought no physical evidence of their purported find to the surface.
That is a huge disappointment.
Mysterious lake never freezes. It maintains a constant 35 degrees F during the freezing winters.
This has led some to speculate that an underground hot spring may warm the lake. This scenario is plausible, as much of the rock in the Lake Labynkyr area is volcanic.

If we trust the stories about this 'Devil,' there must be about 1.5 meters [5 feet] between its eyes. It means the length of its body must be about 7 to 8 meters [23 to 26 feet].
In 2012 they did manage to get several large underwater object sonar hits.

So until more data is brought to the table, along with photographic or video evidence, and preferably the alleged large jawbone and skeleton they reported, we are left to sit and wait as we are with further Bigfoot evidence.


While we're waiting, here are a few other threads with articles (with photos and video) of some other mysterious creatures in Russian waters over the last few years.

Is it just me, or is everything bigger and more mysterious in Russia? A lot of Russian folklore has been overblown and outright lied about to give certain people press.

As much as I would like to believe this, it's hard to with so many fake claims coming out of Russia in general.

Good post.

I'm wondering why it seems that a whole bunch of lake's with reported monsters, are in cold water locales, like Lake Titicaca, Loch Ness, or, Lake Champlain?
