Rocky

Freshwater Monster of Wisconsin.

Etymology: After the lake.

Physical description: Spotted dark brown, like a pickerel. Horselike head. Eyes like a snake's. Long neck.

Distribution: Rock Lake, Wisconsin.

Significant sightings: The earliest sighting was in 1867. On August 28, 1882 (or 1887), Ed McKenzie and D. W. Seybert were in a rowboat race on the lake when they spotted a floating log that turned out to be the head and neck of an animal. The creature was as long as their boat and the color of a pickerel.
