reported sightings
Reported Sightings
  • First reported sightings date back to 1933

  • 1934, Arthur Grant made the first land sighting of Nessie
  • Some sightings are thought to be nothing but a hoax
hoaxes
Hoaxes
  • Most famous photograph, “surgeons photo”, found false in 1993. Photo was of a model of the monster.
  • Another photograph shows a vague and fuzzy image of Nessie’s face, but was later proven to be the remains of a tree stump.
  • Sonar images show large object in the water, but uncertain if it is a school of fish.

Foot prints were found leading out of the lake, but they were then proven to be that of a hippo, staged to be Nessie’s foot prints

other possibilities
Other possibilities
  • Explanations can be either a manatee or a zeugloden (also known as a primitive whale).
  • Other culprits could be unknown species like a long necked seal, giant otter, or overgrown eel.
  • Logs of Scotch Pine trees that decay underwater and create gases that cannot escape, but will eventually break through and propel the log through the water.
  • Standing waves that are created by wind piling up a layer of warm water to the end of the loch and forcing the cold water to the opposite side.
