Today's news reports that in Northern Argentina, in the province of Salta, a mysterious lake creature was filmed. The photo above is a still from the video. The press quickly named it "Cabralito" after the lake it lives in (it is a cute diminutive of the lake's name similar to Nahuelito of Nahuel Huapi fame or Nessie of Loch Ness).

The footage was taken close to a pier known as El Préstamo by Leo Bonino, on the lake of Cabra Corral. The lake is man made, as a dam was built in 1972 on the Juramento River. It has a surface of about 127 km2 (49 sq. mi.) and its water flows all the way to the Paraná River north of Buenos Aires.

The dam is 65 km from the city of Salta, captial of the province of Salta in Northwestern Argentina.

Jorge Santi, a diver of the Lake Division of the Salta Provincial Police, said that:

"There have been rumors about this for years. Some say that they have seen a reptile similar to a yacaré and others swear that they have seen a great snake moving with its head above the surface."

Nevertheless, a local named Roberto Eduardo Portal, says that "Cabralito" skeptically said that "'Cabralito' is nothing more than a family of otters who have lived in the lake for the last 30 years."

Whatever the creature in the video is, it is certainly not a family of otters.
