The Lake Monsters of America
People love to fill in mysterious areas of nature with myths of monsters. Early maps had voids of knowledge marked with warnings that “Here be Dragons,”sasquatches are believed to be prowling the thick forests, and legends tell of strange creatures that might be concealed beneath the surface of our lakes. Here we present our map of American lake monsters (view it large here), showing the spread of cryptids that might be lurking in the depths of the waters of the United States.
You’ll see a good share of serpent-like animals of the Loch Ness Monsters variety, such as Isabella of Bear Lake in Idaho who was spotted by a Mormon pioneer in the 19th century and even had Brigham Young himself send a hunting party after the possible plesiosaur. There’s also the famed Champ of Lake Champlain, possibly the most famous of American lake monsters, and the Lake Dillon monster in Wyoming that some think is being suppressed by a secret society. However, that’s just where the fun of this fauna folklore begins, as there are also legends of monolithic turtles, webbed hominids, a goat man, a winged alligator snake, a horse-headed alligator, a giant killer octopus, and an eel with a pig head. Just for kicks, we’ve included some illustrations of the more curious entities on our Lake Monsters of America map.
For more in-depth assessments of the most curious of the bunch, keep reading The Lake Monsters of America on Atlas Obscura!

Against the Infinite - Crazy Three Dimensional Art by AJ Fosik
You might recognize AJ Fosik as the artist responsible for the cover of Mastodon's 2011 record The Hunter. These pictures are from his solo exhibition “Against the Infinite” currently running until December 21 at the Jonathan Levine Gallery. The coup de grâce of the show is a collection of 30 animal heads on diamond-shaped panels that can be combined to form a giant 30-sided shape called a rhombic triacontahedron.
