A water creature rather like the Loch-Ness monster of Scotland this is Swiss creature that inhabits the Lake Selisbergsee. It has a long snake like body with a large head and clawed feet. It leaves the lake at night and preys on sheep. It would swim up to a boat and raise its head suddenly then swim underwater for a while before diving into the depths. Such an action would predict an imminent storm.
