Many legendary monsters are said to roam the Earth. People talk about Bigfoot, Yeti, Chupacabra and other such whimsical creatures. They tell tales of bloodsuckers in the dead of the night and keep talismans to protect themselves from wolf people. Some of these creatures are said to live in the deep waters. One of the most famous underwater monsters is without doubt Nessie.
The Loch Ness Monster, also known as Nessie, is a creature that supposedly inhabits the lake with the same name that is located in Scotland. Although its presence has not been documented by the scientific community people all over the world are convinced that Nessie truly exists. Some say the monster is actually the last in a line of still surviving dinosaurs. Others say Nessie is a sea serpent that swam in the lake before it became landlocked. What is certain is that, throughout the years, the monster has become one of Scotland’s symbols.
Some claim the Loch Ness Monster was first spotted in 565 AD. According to a Catholic legend, a giant beast was threatening a man in the Ness River, the river that floats in the lake. However, true reports of the beast start less than a century ago. In 1934 a photo showing a serpentine head and a neck was taken by Kenneth Wilson, a London surgeon. Decades later, it was proved to be a hoax. In 1938 Chief Constable William Fraser wrote a letter saying it was without doubt that the monster existed. A hunting party had come with a harpoon especially made to catch Nessie dead or alive. C. B. Farrel of the Royal Observer Corps claimed to have seen the monster in 1943.
Dozens of ambiguous photos and videos have come to light since the first sighting. Loch Ness itself has been searched extensively, yet not one single trace of Nessie has been found. Do you believe the Loch Ness Monster exists or is it just a myth?
