The Loch Ness Monster in Scotland, UK, is a world-famous unsolved mystery. Every year it attracts tourists from all over the world to explore, and many people debate whether the monster exists. Recently, scientists have discovered through new methods of exploration that the Loch Ness Monster may be “real.”
A study has found that the Loch Ness Monster may be real, The Mirror reports. Researchers have been collecting DNA left behind by creatures in a Scottish lake as part of a major scientific study. They took water samples from three different depths and tested the DNA of living organisms, which included the creatures’ skin, scales, fur and feces. Labs in Australia, New Zealand, Denmark and France have been analyzing samples.
Professor Neil Gemmell from the University of Otago in New Zealand said the results were surprising. The full findings of the study are yet to be detailed, but he revealed that one of the existing popular theories about the Loch Ness Monster may be correct. One theory is that the monster was a plesiosaur that survived while the other dinosaurs became extinct. Another more likely outcome is that Nessie is a sturgeon or a giant catfish. Professor Gemmell said: “Is there any deep mystery about this? Well… it depends on what you believe in.” “What we have achieved is what we set out to do, and it was done with a certain degree of detail.” Documenting the biodiversity of Loch Ness.”
The Loch Ness Monster has been documented since 1,500 years ago. Over the next ten centuries, there were more than 10,000 such messages. But some skeptics pointed out that this is just an illusion caused by the refraction of light. The monster was first reported in 1933 in an article that appeared in the Inverness Courier. A man traveling from London claimed he and his wife saw “the closest thing to a dragon or prehistoric animal we’ve ever seen in our lives”.
In 1934, the “Surgeon’s Photograph” report showed the creature’s head and neck. The photo was taken by gynecologist Robert Wilson, who did not want his name associated with the short film he shot, so he was called “The Surgeon.” There have been eight officially recorded sightings so far, the most recent in 2014 when Dr Jo Knight from Lancaster University and her nine-year-old son were interested in the Loch Ness monster, so they traveled there and claimed A water monster was sighted.

Loch Ness, also translated as Lake Ness, is located in the Grand Canyon in the northern part of the Scottish Plateau, England. The lake is 37 kilometers long and 2.4 kilometers at its widest point. The area is not large, but deep. Loch Ness is a freshwater lake that never freezes all year round. It is suitable for living creatures to drink. Therefore, there are many fish and shrimps in the lake, and water birds gather in the lake. The superior natural environment provides favorable conditions for the survival of monsters, and the famous Loch Ness Monster appears here.
A 12-year-old girl named Charlotte claimed to have taken a photo of the Loch Ness Monster. Charlotte was on holiday at Loch Ness Highland Lodges, a hotel in Invermoriston, Scotland, and when she took a photo of the lake, it did look like there was a creature that looked like the Loch Ness Monster. She said the Loch Ness monster suddenly surfaced and then dived back down, probably about 10 feet away from her.
Felson, a 55-year-old expert who has studied the Loch Ness monster for 27 years, couldn’t agree more with Charlotte’s photo, saying ‘I’m very excited about this photo, it’s the best photo of Nessie in years, it’s clearly three-dimensional. The image is also relatively clear. Many people think that it is just a seal in the photo, but I have never heard of a seal in Loch Ness this year, and the creature in the photo is larger than a seal or otter, which is worth studying.
