Pressie is a lake monster that allegedly inhabits Lake Superior in the United States.


It has been described as around 75 feet in length with a horse-like head and sharp, possibly jutting, teeth, and set on a long neck. It is proposed to have large pectoral fins that may have been held close to the body for streamlining, and a tail not dissimilar to a whales.


Sightings of the monster date back to the 1800s. One possible Pressie sighting notes that the creature swam in a snake-like motion. This occurred in 1897 near Duluth, Minnesota, when a man fell overboard on his yacht after hitting a rock. In the water the man claimed that a creature attacked and attempted to "constrict" him. 


It is possible that some Pressie sightings could have actually been of lake sturgeons, which can grow over 6 feet in length. Pressie could even be some species of snake, considering the one sighting with constriction.
