Old Mission Loch Ness Monster? Or Common Michigan Mammal?

Feel free to share this post...

Mary Morgan sent along this photo of a mysterious animal in the bay. She said its tail was long and skinny, and it appeared to be black, although it could have just looked dark in the water.

She said it was swimming about where the shallow water hits the deeper water, and that it kept diving under and then surfacing.

Do we have our very own Old Mission Loch Ness Monster? Tim’s and my initial guess is a muskrat. We used to see a lot of them around Old Mission when I was a kid, and there’s actually one around our place on Bluff Road right now.

What do you guys think? Muskrat? Or Old Mission Loch Ness Monster?

Here’s a picture of a muskrat.
