Although there are no known species of fresh water octopus living anywhere in the world, reports of such a creature have been coming out of Oklahoma for centuries. Three bodies of water in particular have become synonymous with these phenomena, Lake Thunderbird, Lake Oolagah and Lake Tenkiller.
Modern sightings of the creature are almost non existent, however it is reported that Native Americans long feared this creature that they likened to a leach. Described as having the overall appearance of an octopus, with leathery, reddish brown skin, the Oklahoma Octopus is said to grow to the size of a horse.
Skeptics, and there are plenty, laugh off the idea of a giant fresh water octopus stalking the fresh water lakes of Oklahoma, to date not even a small species of fresh water octopus has been discovered, convincing the majority of investigators, who even give a second thought to the Oklahoma Octopus, to the write off the creature outright as nothing more than the misidentification of a common animal.
There is currently no physical evidence to suggest that a creature like the Oklahoma Octopus does or ever did call the fresh water lakes of Oklahoma home.
No documented sightings of the Oklahoma Octopus could be located at this time.
