The Beast of Bala

Nick Redfern, blogger on our sister site UFOMystic, joins us as a regular contributor here at Cryptomundo.

Loch Ness, Scotland is home to the legendary lake-monster called Nessie. Okanagan Lake, in British Columbia, Canada can boast of its own water-based beast, Ogopogo. In the depths of Lake Champlain, Vermont lurks Champ. And in Lake Bala, North Wales swims the less well known, but no less intriguing, Teggie.

So, what do we know for sure about this latter creature of the deep? Well, one of the most notable and provably things is that Lake Bala is home to the Gwyniad, a type of prehistoric fish that is not found anywhere else in the world. And with one ancient creature in residence at the lake, might there also be a second one; perhaps one far bigger and much more menacing than the relatively small Gwyniad?

That is a question I address in my latest Lair of the Beasts post…
