Maine's Landlocked Walrus
Beware the landlocked walrus in lakes and rivers, a rare cryptid of the Maine Woods. For those who are skeptical, in a 1901 issue of Field & Stream, Manly Hardy, a respected, Brewer naturalist and fur buyer wrote: "I remember in the spring of 1861 that as I traveled on foot over a hundred miles from Katahdin Iron Works to the head waters of the St. John I met many (lumber and hunting) crews coming out who usually had frightening stories to tell me of the walruses and the danger I ran of meeting them.”
