The evidence
The Evidence…

There has been a total of 135 total sightings of the Loch Ness Monster, in which 116 of those has been seen in the water and 19 has been seen on land.


Sonar
Sonar

The Webster's Dictionary Defines Sonar as ‘A method for detecting and locating objects submerged in water by echolocation’.

This is what they saw...

Robert Rines, a Nessie Hunter, used sonar to look for the Loch Ness Monster. While he was using sonar, he found a group of fish trying to run away from what it seemed like a huge animal. Him and his team tracked the animal with an underwater camera and saw a greenish brown skin-like coat, a tail, and some huge fins, all moving incredibly fast.

In 1975, Robert Rines and his crew were at another expedition. After setting up some underwater camera rigs and sonar devices, close-up underwater photos were taken of an animal. These pictures show a head and body of a creature in remarkable detail.

Tim Dinsdale’s Film

Taken in April 23, 1960, Tim Dinsdale caught a dark object moving along the lake. Some believe this object in the water to be a fishing boat or a big fish. But some base there belief in Nessieon this film. It is hard to tell what it really is, because of the fact that back in the mid 1900s, the portable cameras were not very clear.

The Loch Ness

Loch Ness is the deepest body of water in Europe with a depth of over 227 meters. It is 23 miles long and 2 miles across.

That’s like standing 2.5 football fields up then sticking them in a lake!

A Respected Creature

Not only is the Loch Ness monster one of the most well known unsolved mysteries, but it is also one of the most cherished by people and movie companies alike. There has been countless movies and T.V. shows released about Nessie. The most recent movie is The Water Horse.

A hoax
A Hoax?

One of the most famous photos of the Loch Ness Monster is the Surgeons Photo. This depicts what looks like the head and body of a creature. The man who took this picture later said that he attached an artificial head to a toy submarine, negating the factuality of the photo.

A Slight Breeze

Some scientist believe that some of the sightings of the Loch Ness Monster was due to the wind causing a disturbance in the water.


Elephant
Elephant?

Some believe the Loch Ness monster to be an elephant. This is thought because the head of the elephant might look like a body and the trunk out of the water might look like a head.


Wood

There are people who think that the cause for all these sightings are due to some rotten wood floating to the surface. When rotten wood ferments, it turns buoyant, but only for a few seconds, before the oxygen reacts with the bacteria, causing it to sink again. This picture indicates that a piece of wood could look just like Nessie if you saw it from a distance.


In conclusion
In Conclusion

Some believe the beast to exist, some do not. There is so much evidence to prove that Nessie does exist, but so much to prove that all the evidence is fake. Either way, it is a legend that evokes curiosity and child-like wonder in all of us.

So, do we think it’s real?
