The Canadian Lake monster, commonly known as Ogopogo, is reported to live in Okanagan Lake in British Columbia, Canada. It is named the “Ogopogo” which originated from a 1925 song called “The Ogo-Pogo: The Funny Fox-Trot”, by Cumberland Clark and Mark Strong. It is allegedly seen in 19th century by First Nations people. It is described to be 40 to 50 foot long (12 to 15 m) and serpent-like. Crytozoologist, Karl Shuker, describes that the Ogopopo has many humps like many lake monsters, although not much else is known due to lack of photographs or films of the creature.

The first sighting was reported in 1926 in Okanagan Mission beach. Upwards of 30 eyewitnesses claim to have seen a giant serpent with many humps swimming in the lake.
