    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...

    A British outdoorsman paddling through Scotland’s Loch Ness for a long-distance charity canoe trip may have inadvertently captured drone footage of the fabled Loch Ness Monster. “The last thing I want to do is make a Nessie claim,” Richard Mavor told The Post. “I’m the most skeptical of people. But watching this I think yeah, there’s something a bit strange here.” The video image taken last month of a long, thin form just beneath the water’s surface was so fleeting that Mavor, 54, didn’t notice it when he posted it Sept. 1.

    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...

    WINDERMERE, England - A British man said he used his cellphone to snap a picture of what he said is "Bownessie," a legendary creature in England's Lake Windermere. Tom Pickles, 24, said he snapped the picture of the creature, known as the English counterpart to Scotland's Loch Ness monster, Feb. 11 while on a kayaking exercise with his company, The Daily Telegraph reported Friday. Pickles said the creature was the size of three cars and was visible for about 20 seconds. "Its skin was like a seal's but its shape was completely abnormal -- it's not like any animal I've...

    A group of filmmakers claim to have successfully captured Sweden’s legendary Great Lake Sea Monster (Storsjöodjuret), which is said to lurk in the waters of the Storsjön outside Östersund in northern Sweden. A film crew which set up cameras on one of the lake’s islets last spring now say that they have an image of the seamonster, according to Svergies Television. The film clip shows a blurry, long and narrow silhouette moving in the lake’s depths. “It clearly shows that it’s warm and is made up of cells, otherwise our cameras wouldn’t indicate red, so it can be a sea...
