Tales of a unidentified sea creature lurking in a North Carolina lake  have been renewed following a fresh sighting of the cryptid.

An anonymous witness, who reported his sighting to the website cryptozoology.com, claims to have spotted a 'dinosaur-like creature' causing a ruckus in North Carolina's Lake Norman.

According to the observer, the mystery beast looked to be about ten feet  long and was "splashing around in the water" for around a minute before  disappearing back down into the water.

His encounter is just the latest in a long line of such sightings at the man-made lake which is somehow said to be home to a beast known as the 'Lake Norman Monster.'
