Reloncavi is not a lake, but a deep arm of the South Pacific Ocean 60 km long [37 mi.] that winds among the Andes (41°41’ S, 72°26’ W) and receives the flow of several mountain rivers born on its western flanks such as the Manso and Puelo rivers.
Apparently local folk, Tito Bahamonde and his wife Amandina Velázquez that live by Lake Vidal Gormaz(41°29’ S, 71°56’ W) have seen a “‘monster’ that supposedly lives in the lake”.
Close by, at Lake de Las Rocas (42°02’ S, 71°05’ W), there have also been reports about a lake creature but no description has been given.
In 1995 there was a sighting at Lake Tagua-Tagua (41°41’ S, 72°07’ W), into which flows Puelo River and is downstream from the famous plesiosaur “Black Lake”. A local, Carlos Pinto traveling in a motor boat upstream, came across an animal swimming in the same direction, that had “the head of a little foal, with a shiny hide and a short rigid mane” he moved aside to let it by because its wake nearly overturned his boat; swimming fast, it soon left him behind.
There was yet another sighting by Pinto’s aunt, who lives by Tagua-Tagua. She had a pregnant mare that one day seemed to have given birth; she began “to neigh, and an animal like a small foal appeared which had feet like those of a duck […] and it walked like a duck”.
This ‘colt’ began to “molt its fur like through a wounding its back [it then] went towards the river that goes into the lake and disappeared” the mare neighed as if calling the foal.
The woman took this strange animal to be the foal, but it could be likely that it was a predator that had captured the foal and taken it to the lake to eat it.

Author's comment: My apologies to any Jewish readers for my inclusion of this last site () as a reference. This source belongs to a Chilean neo-nazi "political party" which promotes antisemitism, which I repudiate. Neo-nazism is repugnant and offensive and event though they disguise their perverted ideas, they promote intolerance and hate, which is against my moral values. I have only included it because of the information on the Tagua Tagua creature.
Just remember what hate did to mankind between 1933 and 1945. All the millions of innocent people murdered due to insane ideas.
For those who due to ignorance deny the Holocaust or Shoah, or those really interested in learning more about this tragic event: The Nizcor Project and also: Yad Vashem The Holocaust Martyrs' and Heroes' Remembrance Authority.
