UPDATE: Anaconda snake on a lake puts Hopatcong, New Jersey on the map

Despite what many people have reported, the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection believes there is no Anaconda snake in Hopatcong Lake.

There have been several sightings of a snake of anywhere from 14 to 20 feet in length over recent weeks in the area, but none of them have been confirmed.

"There has never been a confirmed sighting, no pictures, no video, no other evidence that there is an exotic species in the lake,” said DEP spokesman Larry Ragonese, according to the Daily Record. “Fish and Wildlife folks staked out the area the snake had reportedly been seen all weekend, spent part of a night there, we've been in touch with local animal control, and found no sign of a snake."
