|The Lake Cane Monster|
Is there a monster in Lake Cane? Some of the locals say yes they have seen it. AQUATICA 1K swimmers have said they have felt it's presence when they swim and affectionately have named him/her "Slimebo". Described as a large slug like creature 12-20 feet long it usually appears at dusk or dark. Although it's favorite hangout is Lake Cane it may squeeze down through the spring and live in the aquifer below. It was also reported in the sink hole about 700 feet away from lake cane so there may be underground connections elsewhere. Around since the early 60s its age is unknown.
Although his mouth has been described as ranging in size from 1-3 feet apparently he/she is swimmer friendly as it's presence has been described by swimmers underneath them during early morning pre-dawn swims. It rarely joins group swims most liking the company of solo swimmers. Occasionally Slimebo will touch you, don't panic he/she is just curious.
It has been said you can hear or feel Slimebo more likely than seeing him/her. An occasional splash near the shore may be Slimebo's eyestalks making a quick retreat to deeper water. Although described as slow moving he/she has been reported moving at very fast speeds through the water.
Slimebo has never been seen on land rarely comes within 10 feet of the shoreline. Mysterious bubbles occasionally on the shore line, once thought to be due to detergents or soaps being dumped in the lake, were tested and were not pollution. Some say is part of the slime released by Slimebo.
Alligators do not like Slimebo, so swimmers take heart when Slimebo is around gators are not.
