Pitt Lake Lizard, a.k.a. Canadian Alligator is a large lizard sighted in a Pitt Lake, British Columbia. On June 3, 1973, Warren and Sharon Scott observed a number of huge reptiles in the lake. Warren captured three smaller specimens and sent one to the biology department of Simon Fraser University, but there is no record of its receipt.
Possible explanations Edit
- The largest lizardlike animal in British Columbia is the Pacific giant salamander (Dicamptodon tenebrosus), but this amphibian has a marbled appearance with dark spots and only grows to about 11 inches.
- An unknown species of Monitor lizard (Family Varanidae).
