The Lake Van monster lives in Lake Van, Turkey, a large alkaline body of water that is sizeable enough to support this creature. According to its witnesses, it is about 50 feet long and is another plesiosaurid creature. However, some say it more resembles an icthyosaur, which separates it from its normal lake monster bretheren. Skeptiks discredit the only video of this creature, and call it a tourist trap and a hoax. Still, over 1,000 people have seen the creature and the locals are proud of their monster: They've erected a large statue of their resident beast near the lake.
