    A new photograph showing a moving object in the middle of the Solent has caused eyewitnesses to question if it was the Loch Ness Monster enjoying a holiday. The extraordinary sighting of three humps bobbing up and down in the water comes just days after a similar shape was spotted in The Thames by the O2 Arena in London. The picture - taken 630 miles away from Loch Ness - has resulted in Trevor and Jo Wilde questioning if it was Nessie swimming past. Three humps emerged from the water as the Nessie-shaped creature - first brought to the world's...

    UNEXPLAINED sightings of something mysterious lurking in Loch Ness were at the highest level this century during 2019. A total of 18 sightings were recorded on the Official Loch Ness Monster Sightings Register – the highest since 1983. They ranged from eyewitness accounts by visitors to the area to unusual objects spotted by people on the other side of the world scouring images on a live webcam of the loch. The entries also include a sighting by seriously-ill Zachary White, aged five, who travelled from his home in Berkshire to the loch and spotted the monster after being given a...

    The creatures behind repeated sightings of the fabled Loch Ness Monster may be giant eels, according to scientists. Researchers from New Zealand have tried to catalogue all living species in the loch by extracting DNA from water samples. Following analysis, the scientists have ruled out the presence of large animals said to be behind reports of a monster. No evidence of a prehistoric marine reptile called a plesiosaur or a large fish such as a sturgeon were found. Catfish and suggestions that a wandering Greenland shark were behind the sightings were also discounted. The aim of the research was not...

    Speculation: The mystery sea creature with razor sharp teeth has been confusing people ============================================================================================================= The image has divided social media with some claiming it is a large hairtail, a long, slender fish found in tropical seas, while others suggest it has been photoshopped With the body of a legless crocodile and the head of a dolphin, this strange sea creature looks more like something out of medieval myth than a real animal. It was photographed after washing ashore on the banks of Lake Macquarie in New South Wales in Australia. Ethan Tipper snapped an image of the creature before posting...

    If you're one of those Loch Ness monster fans or debunkers who has been waiting for over a year while a team of DNA researchers from New Zealand analyzed water samples taken from across the loch in an effort to identify all of the creatures in it and - by process of elimination - find or disprove the alleged cryptid ... your wait is over! Or is it? "We've tested each one of the main monster hypotheses and three of them we can probably say aren't right and one of them might be." ... "What we'll have achieved is what...

    LONDON (Reuters) - A global team of scientists plans to scour the icy depths of Loch Ness next month using environmental DNA (eDNA) in an experiment that may discover whether Scotland’s fabled monster really does, or did, exist. The use of eDNA sampling is already well established as a tool for monitoring marine life like whales and sharks. Whenever a creature moves through its environment, it leaves behind tiny fragments of DNA from skin, scales, feathers, fur, faeces and urine. “This DNA can be captured, sequenced and then used to identify that creature by comparing the sequence obtained to large...

He spends his life on the loch - around 60 hours a week - taking tourists out on his boat Nessie Hunter IV, and has led numerous Nessie hunts over the years. But this image is the one that's convinced...

    A NESSIE hunt using a team of dolphins was planned by the Tory government, according to declassified secret documents. Within days of the 1979 election, officials in Margaret Thatcher's regime proposed importing the mammals from America and fitting them with hi-tech equipment to scour Loch Ness. Despite opposition from animal rights groups, it was argued that finding the monster would benefit local tourism. A letter from Environment Department civil servant David Waymouth to Stewart Walker at the Scottish Home and Health Department, showed the Government wanted a licence to initiate the plan. It stated: "This department is presently considering the...
