Sea Monster of the North Pacific Ocean.
Etymology: Possibly from the Portuguese bobo ("silly") because of the reaction to eyewitness reports. Portuguese-speaking fishermen were common in the area in the 1940s.
Distribution: Cape San Martin and Monterey Bay, California.
Significant sighting: On November 7, 1946, a monster with the face of a gorilla appeared off Cape San Martin. Apparently it had been seen for the previous ten years.
