A hypothetical marine reptile supposedly living off the coast of North America. It is also called Cadborosaurus willsi or "Caddy".

Eyewitnesses most often describe the cadborosaurus as a huge snake with an elongated narrow body, 5 to 30 meters long, with a head similar to a horse or camel, on a long neck. He allegedly has two small front fins, a caudal fin, as well as two large rear fins. The animal allegedly moves through the bends of its own body and can reach speeds of up to 40 km/h.

The first reports of cadborosaurus began to arrive about 200 years ago, at the turn of the XVIII and XIX centuries, and since then about 300 of his observations have been recorded, some of them reportedly taking place not only on the coast of British Columbia, but also near Vancouver Island and in the San Francisco Bay area in California.

Photos of half-decomposed carcasses of initially unidentified marine animals or these carcasses themselves in the first half of the XX century were often tried to associate with these creatures. In all the cases covered in the press, scientists eventually proved that the remains belong to a shark, a baleen whale, a sea lion or some other known creature.
