Raystown Ray

One of Pennsylvania's most famous cryptid creatures prefers to make his home in one of Pennsylvania's top tourist spots. Lake Raystown is home to muskies, catfish, and a giant prehistoric monster known as Raystown Ray.

Ray is thought to be very similar to the Loch Ness monster and is said to be a similar species of creature. While there have been numerous sightings of the monster in Loch Ness, Ray doesn't seem as bold. Multiple underwater divers in the lake have reported witnessing immeasurably massive creatures dwelling deep in the waters. Ray wasn't officially spotted though until April 2006 when a local man captured the above photograph. Since that time numerous stories and sightings of Ray have spread. Many doubt the validity of these stories and believe they are mainly used to attract tourists to the region. It's quite easy to dismiss these tales given the fact Lake Raystown is one of the largest man-made lakes in the country. What are your thoughts?
