"Freshwater Monkey" is a collective term used to describe numerous creatures seen in North America and Asia. Examples include the Kappa, the Loveland Frogman, the Lizard Man of Scape Ore Swamp, and even the reptilian variety of Chupacabra. The basic description of these creatures matches-- reptilian, bipedal, with typically 3-toes, and occasional thin layers of hair. Size varies, from the 3-foot Kappa to the 7-foot Lizardman. The most common explanation for these creatures, as the name suggests, is that they are an aquatic variety of monkey or similar hominid. This would explain the thin, gangly body shape, the occasionally-spotted tail, and the hair.
