French Hunt Prehistoric Lake Monster

The Dothan Eagle (Dothan, AL) ran a story on September 3, 1934, about a scaly monster spotted in Lake Camon. According to a man who saw the creature, it was a prehistoric animal with phosphorescent eyes. The creature was covered in scales and was 25 feet long.














It is interesting that this report comes from a lake that is a remnant of an ancient sea. Remnant lakes often experience lake monster sightings. Also noteworthy is the phosphorescent eyes. This is not commonly reported among lake monsters; it is reported, however, with Yacumama sightings. The Yacumama, native to the Amazon, is more commonly referred to as the giant anaconda.
