Or just some old logs? What do you think? Check out the video below.

A 30-second video of dark shadows in British Columbia's Okanagan Lake could show Ogopogo, Canada's version of the Loch Ness Monster.

There have been reports of Ogopogo being spotted on over a thousand occasions in the last 150 years or so – and now local Richard Huls, who shot the video, thinks it finally proves there's something down there.

He told the Vancouver Sun: "It was not a wave obviously, just a darker colour. The size and the fact that they were not parallel with the waves made me think it had to be something else. It proves something is down there. Whether it's Ogopogo or not is a different story, but there is something at least down there."

The two slender-looking objects on the video are about 40' in length and don't appear to be moving.

Benjamin Radford, from the Skeptical Inquirer science magazine, was unconvinced by the video footage, saying: "There are no humps, nor head, nor form – only two long, darkish, more or less straight forms that appear to be a few dozen feet long.

"Perhaps not coincidentally, Lake Okanagan has tens of thousands of logs harvested by the timber industry floating just under the lake's surface."
