‘Most Convincing Leviathan’ Spotted on Google Map Images of Russian Lake

The “lake monster” hypothesis doesn’t seem to hold much water, leading several Redditors to suggest that the mystery sight is nothing more than a geological feature.

Yet another potentially intriguing discovery has been made by a social media user scouring Google Maps looking for peculiar sights.

Uploaded on the Reddit forum “Google Maps Oddities” by user “Dexteram-Malum,” a series of screenshots show what looks like a massive, vaguely serpentine shape lurking in a body of water located in Russia’s easternmost reaches in the Chukotka Autonomous Orkug.

The author of the upload mused if they had stumbled upon “Russia’s own lake monster,” describing it as the “most convincing leviathan” they’ve ever seen.
