There’s one creature in Minnesota that’s so hard to track that $50,000 reward is out for proof it exists. Ever since the 1800s, residents around Lake Pepin in Lake City, Minn. say they’ve spotted a sea monster. They call him, Pepie.

“It was very strange,” said Larry Nielson, who says he’s seen the mysterious creature. “We watched it for quite a while and we watched it for about 15 minutes and could not figure out what it might be.”

Steve Raymond shares the same story. “Now, I’m the third person who’s reported it. I distinctly remember three humps, with one hump looking like a head,” recalled Raymond about his experience on Lake Pepin.
