Fact or Fiction Loch Ness is the most mythical and imaginable creature in story books and scientific papers today. It is common in Scotland, to hear a story from an eye witness and hear the feat of their encounter with the beast. The beast included in uncountable claims and the beast of the story books.
Why is a microphone in my face? For thousands of years since the ancient Celts, stories were told of strange creatures residing in the highlands such as the majestic legend of Nessie who remains famous to this day.
Travelling to Scotland to investigate the history of Nessie, I learned the very first sightings of Nessie date back as far as when Irish monks were traveling through Scotland to convert the Picts.
The Irish monk Saint Columba was traveling through the highlands with a group of twelve others when they came across the River Ness. The Picts told a legend of a ferocious monster that had been attacking boats and people who were swimming in the lake until Columba had banished the monster.
This legend may also explain the legend of the Kelpie, a water demon that disguised itself as a horse and drowned people that tried to ride it. I agree with the many people who claim to have encountered Nessie on all fronts such as land, water, and even sonar contact Nessie.
In digging through old newspaper clippings, I discovered that Mr. George Spicer made the first Nessie sighting that was published in a newspaper, the Courier. However, around this time in - 33, the construction of a road near the rocky shores of the loch created a surge in Nessie encounters and sightings Streissguth Taylor documented Nessie on video; however, Maurice Burton, who possessed the film, refused to show the film to Loch Ness investigators Streissguth Ina medical doctor by the name of Dr.
Wilson photographed Nessie creating her widespread fame all over the world Streissguth However, on his deathbed Dr.
Wilson admitted that his photo was a hoax that was created by attaching a wooden head to a toy submarine. The story of the hoax was officially published on the 7th of December, in the Sunday Telegraph. I decided to interview people of the region to discover their thoughts on Nessie. While many people, including myself, believe in the legend of Nessie, there are others who speculate that these sightings are pure folly or merely a case of mistaken identity.
This difference of opinion creates constant arguing between believers who think Nessie is a real cryptic and skeptics who think she is nothing more than hype for the sake of tourism Streissguth This type of debate is found among the common public, scientists and even politicians who argue about listing Nessie as an endangered animal or not.
Until the Loch Ness Monster is proven to exist, the debate will continue. Loch Ness is massive with a surface area of 14, acres and holds a total of ,, cubic feet of water to provide a large territory for Nessie Nessie.
Loch Ness is famous for possessing many large networks of underwater caves that could provide cover and shelter for an entire population of creatures http: Glacial flooding created the lake and it is fed by seven rivers allowing more areas for Nessie to hunt and remain hidden Streissguth I quickly notice that the waters of Loch Ness are extremely dark and murky making them perfect cover for an aquatic creature like Nessie.
Loch Ness possesses a wide range of creatures such as salmon, mergansers, and giant sturgeons providing an excellent food source for a large creature Hamswroth http: The constant circulation of warm and cold water causes Loch Ness to emanate steam acting as a heat source for an aquatic creature nessie.
Since Loch Ness never freezes, it is possible for it to support a cold blooded creature such as a plesiosaur or a mosasaurus Nessie. It is a common belief that Nessie is a prehistoric throw-back of a long-necked marine reptile known as a plesiosaur Streissguth Some people argue, however, that Loch Ness is too dark and cold to support an exothermic marine reptile such as a plesiosaur or mosasaur "Plesiosaurus.
Most sightings describe her as having a long serpentine neck and a large hump that is characteristic of a plesiosaur http: Some reptiles tend to be asexual so it is possible for only one to be required to continue the species.
Furthermore, since plesiosaurs are not typically territorial or hostile, a small community could live in the Loch without trouble http: When researching the possibility of Nessie being a plesiosaur, I discovered she could also be an archaeoceti.
While less likely than a plesiosaur in terms of appearance, an archaeoceti is more likely in terms of environment http:The Loch Ness Monster is an alleged creature that has been said to live in Loch Ness in the Scottish Highlands. The Loch Ness Monster legend originated in the first century A.D.
