The Earth is vast and we have yet to discover all its mysteries. Deep lakes and dark forests might hide more than just known about wildlife. For hundreds of years, people believed they had spotted monsters in less traveled regions of our planet. Names like Nessie, the Jersey Devil and the Kraken have been on many people’s lips, while some adventurers have searched for these monsters. Discover below three legendary monsters and the places where they are said to dwell.
1. Nessie or the Loch Ness Monster
Perhaps one of the most famous legendary monsters, Nessie, is the aquatic creature said to inhabit Scotland’s Loch Ness. It is said Nessi was first spotted in 1933. Since then many reports of sightings came. Both locals and tourists claimed to have seen something spring from the dark waters of the lake. Some believe Nessie is a plesiosaur, a dinosaur from bygone ages. Others believe she belongs to a yet undiscovered marine species.
Despite numerous investigations, no evidence has surfaced that Nessie actually exists.
2. El Chupacabra or the “goat-sucker”
Another creature on our list of legendary monsters is Chupacabra. This being was first reported as seen in Puerto Rico during the mid 90’s. Chupacabra has spikes on its back, alien-like eyes and a height varying between 3 and 5 feet. This beast supposedly sucks the blood of goats, sheep and other small creatures. Sadly for alien theories’ fans, Chupacabra is not a being from outer space. In fact, we now know that the monster was an invention based on a 1995 sci-fi movie.
Another popular monster is Bigfoot. This creature has had pizzas and monster trucks named after it. Bigfoot was apparently seen at some point during the 50s. Since then, no one has seen hide or hair of the creature. It is believed that the film that captured a furry, bipedal creature and appeared during those times was a simple hoax.
Legendary monsters are said to exist all over the world: vampires, werewolves, ghosts, sea monsters, sirens are just a few on a very long list. Do you believe any of them exist?
