Top five lake monsters in China (3)

3. Monster of Kanas Lake

Kanas Lake

A red-colored, unidentified animal was spotted in the Kanas Lake on July 7th, 2007, according to a picture by a tourist surnamed Yin.

Kanas Lake, located in China' Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, runs 25 kilometers north to south, is about 2.5 kilometers wide, and 188 meters deep at its deepest point. As a national natural protection zone, it has abundant natural resources and various species as well as beautiful views. Legend has it that huge monsters dwell in the lake's depths and they often drag drinking horses and camels into the water before swallowing them. It is said that the monster is actually a kind of rare fish named "Hucho taimen" in Chinese, also called "huge red fish", with the longest one measuring up to over 10 meters. In 2007, elusive mystical creatures emerged again in Kanas Lake. According to the administration of the Kanas scenic spot, on July 5th at 8:20 pm, huge ripples were seen on the surface of the lake by a few tourists carrying portable video cameras.
