25 Cents 2011 - CANADA - Mishepishu
For centuries, Ojibwe legends have described a mysterious creature lurking in the depths of Lake Superior. They call it Mishepishu (pronounced Me-shee-PEE-shoe), which means "Great Lynx", to describe its wildcat shape.
This clever shape-shifter is also believed to swim the waters of Lake Ontario and other Great Lakes in order to protect the precious copper found in the rocks throughout the region. Chances are, you’ll never be quick enough to spot it among the waves.
