"The Most Convincing Nessie Photograph Ever" Only Convinces Some People
Editor's Note: This is a post by Bigfoot Evidence intern Melloney TheEriduserpent. She lives in southern Spain and her various interests are herpetology, mythology, and ufology. Basically, everything supernatural.
Ever since I was a child I can remember hearing now and then that finally someone had concrete photographic proof that "Nessie" was real. Each and every one of those photos turned out to be hoaxes or blurry uneasy shots of shadowy waters.
From 1933 to the present day we are still hearing the same thing, people continue to claim that there is a monster living in this deep Scottish loch. Is it the truth or is it simply the village folk securing their futures by enticing tourism?
"The Loch Ness Monster has been the subject of many sightings in the Scottish Highlands. Some experts believe that the beast represents a line of long-surviving Plesiosaurs, a type of carnivorous aquatic reptile from millions of years ago. Nessie is similar to other supposed lake monsters in Scotland and elsewhere, though its description varies from one account to the next.
There have been hundreds of supposed sightings over the years. Most, however, have been dismissed as hoax or fantasy. One of the most accepted explanations is that the monster is in fact a giant sturgeon, which can grow up to 12 feet long".
