Manipogo is the name given to the lake monster reported to live in Lake Manitoba, Manitoba, Canada. Sightings of this serpent like sea monster have been going on since roughly 1908. The creature was dubbed Manipogo in 1957, the name echoing British Columbia's Ogopogo.

In the mid 1990's a farmer from Sandy Bay claimed to have caught the Manipogo Monster but this claim was proven false.

Sightings:

  • 1948: Reported that some sort of creature rose six feet out of the lake and gave a "prehistoric type of dinosaur cry".
  • 1957: Visitors saw a "giant serpent like creature in the lake."
  • 1962: Two fishermen saw a large creature like a serpent or giant snake 70 yards away from their boat. A claimed "photo" was taken this year, also.
