Five Foot Long Skull Found in Lake

by Caroline Connolly - August 24th 2011 08:47pm

Rockwood, Maine - The pace of life at Moosehead Lake just sort of bobs along, offering views that are, at the very least, consistent.

"You see fish, you know, you see old bottles from the Kineo," said Lynn Stade.

But on a recent trip, Stade and his family swam right into a mystery waiting for them on the lake's floor.

"I thought, oh my god, it looks like a prehistoric monster."

Or what used to be one.

Stretching five feet and smelling nothing like the catch of the day should, it was hauled back by Stade's family to a nearby home in Rockwood.

"To me it's either a whale that survived in the lake all these years. It's a phenomenon. I don't know what it is," said Stade.

That's why they called local newspaper owner, Busta Koppenhaver, to help them get some answers.

"Left a message that said next time you come up bring your camera. I thought we were talking about a two headed chicken, or a humongous sized bees nest, I wasn't sure."

But Koppenhaver thought it was worth of a full page spread asking readers to guess what it is.

"A lot of locals insist that it's a moose's skull. I see no resemblance of a moose there. I've seen moose skulls before. They have teeth, for one thing."

And researchers at the University of Maine agreed, telling us that based on pictures, they believe it's the skull of a Minke Whale that was most likely dumped in the lake.

"I don't see foul play," said Koppenhaver.

He would like to believe that the skull's story runs much deeper than that.

"It would be fun to think that it is a prehistoric creature that lived in the lake. It would be fun to think that it was ET."

And however shallow his theories, it's clear that this family's summer trip has created a ripple effect amidst the calm and quiet of Moosehead Lake.

Nice catch.

Looks like the top half of a whale skull to me, as they mentioned in the story.

Looked it up on google earth and it looks like the lake was joined to the sea in the distant past which would imply that the head is a whales head.

People have been finding fossils of whales in the desert for some time.
just search google for "whale bones found in desert"
I know that you are not talking about deserts but it is interesting none the less that fossils are found in the middle of bum :censored: nowhere.

The Gobi desert is one of the most dinosaur-rich locations on Earth. So I am with you there masterhunter, it is quite amazing that so many prehistoric bones can be found in arid deserts.

Who says what size they could be? :alien:

I mean, there could be a Sun 100 times the size of ours with a habitable planet the size of Jupiter... the Goldfish effect... :)
