Woman Solves The Lochness Monster Mystery Because She Knew Exactly What It Was
Everyone has heard about the mysterious Lock Ness Monster, but no one has been able to identify what exactly was the creature in the picture. Until now, the mystery of the monster remains unresolved. However, a woman recently claimed she knew exactly what the Loch Ness Monster is.
11 The legend of the Loch Ness Monster
According to legend, the Loch Ness monster is a folkloric creature native to Loch Ness in the Scottish Highlands. Many people have claimed to have seen the monster over the years, and some have even produced questionable “proof,” like grainy photos or blurry videos, of the creature’s existence.
10 Sightings of the creature
According to the Inverness Courier, a local couple reported seeing “an enormous animal rolling and plunging on the surface” in 1933. This made Nessie, aka the Loch Ness Monster, a huge deal in the media. Newspaper companies from London started sending reporters to Scotland to cover the story. A second couple claimed to have seen the creature in 1935, this time on land and crossing a road near the water. The story sparked even more interest than it had already garnered following the 1933 sighting.
Several British universities sent expeditions to Loch Ness equipped with sonar to search the depths, and amateur investigators kept a constant vigil. Despite the lack of a definitive result, the sonar operators on each expedition reported seeing large, moving underwater objects that defied explanation.
9 Theories behind the creature
Some have theorized that “Nessie” was a lone survivor of the long-extinct plesiosaurs that were thought to have gone extinct along with the dinosaurs 65 million years ago. However, the famous photograph taken in 1934 showed a dinosaur-like creature with a long neck emerging from the murky waters. It is possible that Nessie may be a surviving member of the long-extinct plesiosaur species since Loch Ness has been frozen solid during recent ice ages.
Some have hypothesized that it was an archeocyte, an extinct primitive whale species that had a serpentine neck. Others claimed that what people really saw at Loch Ness were actually seiches or oscillations in the water surface caused by the mixing of cold river water with the slightly warmer loch water. If you want to see if there’s any truth to the Nessie myth, a trip to Loch Ness is a must.
8 The Loch Ness Monster mystery has been “solved” by a woman who “knows exactly what it is.”
Many researchers and theorists still haven’t concluded what exactly the Loch Ness monster is or where it came from. But after watching the iconic 1934 film, Sue Keogh believes she knows what Nessie is. She claims to have ‘solved’ one of Scotland’s most enduring mysteries.
