The Loch Ness Monster of Scotland apparently has American relations that live in The Chesapeake Bay (Maryland/US). Named locally ''Chessie'', The Chesapeake Monster (affter part The Bay and part Nessie, The Scottish Monster), she (or he) was first reported in the 1940s. Some say that Chessie is an overly large (possibly mutated) Great Sea Eel. Others are not so sure. Described as being a 45-foot long, serpentine creature with a long neck, turtle-like body and flippers very few actual pictures exist. Said to have been seen in 2014, Chessie has become more of a mascot figure and less of a legend. No real scientific expeditions has ever been put forth (unlike Loch Ness). Still, many local citizens swear Chessie exists.
