The Hodag was first spotted in Wisconsin state, around 1893. It appeared to have the face of a frog, a tail with a spear on the end, huge claws at the ends of short legs, and the grin of an elephant.

Hodag "captured" by Eugene Shepard, 1893.

As seen in the picture, Eugene Shepard had caught a Hodag, and people were very frightened. Even though later Shepard said it was a hoax, thousands of people gathered when Shepard showed off his hoax at a fair.

There is a river named after the Hodag in eastern Montana, although no one knows why it is called as such.
