If you say the most mysterious thing in the world, then the Loch Ness monster is the answer. A beast or dinosaur from Scotland.
Please search the internet for the most mysterious things. It must have come out the name of the Loch Ness monster, which is also called Nessi. There have been many sightings of the photos; many claim to have seen them, but there is no satisfactory evidence.
Loch Ness itself is the name of a lake in Scotland. Can be reached by car about 4 hours from Edinburgh (Scottish capital) to the north.
When Did the Loch Ness Monster Mystery Go Global?
Summarized by our various reliable sources, Thursday (6/13/2019), the first time to spread information about the Loch Ness monster was the Inverness Courier, a local media in Scotland. Precisely in 1933, the newspaper’s headline was entitled ‘Strange Spectacle On Loch Ness What Was It?’.
The news explains that there are people who claim to see a large creature with a long neck in the lake. Unfortunately, there are no photos because the creature immediately escapes.
A year later, in 1934, it was Robert Kenneth Wilson’s turn to make a scene. He snapped a photo of what was believed to be a monster in Loch Ness!
The photo is so popular and worldwide until now. Theories have emerged, some say that the photo is just a hoax.
But others think it could be that the monster in Loch Ness is a type of plesiosaur. A reptile and lived in the early Jurassic period. Plesiosaurs did have to come to the surface to breathe.
In 565 AD, history also records a missionary from Ireland named St. Columba had seen a giant monster in Loch Ness Lake. For Scottish people, the monsters’ myth or legend in Loch Ness Lake has indeed become a hereditary story.
Until now, there have been more than 1,000 claims of people who saw the monster there. Most of them saw the shape of a long neck and water bubbles and waves that appeared suddenly.
Loch Ness Lake is indeed open to the public. People can take boats to explore the lake and fish.
The Unsolved Mystery
Until now, many expeditions to uncover the mystery of the Lake Loch Ness monster were carried out. In 1954, sonar detected a foreign object at a depth of 146 meters but then disappeared. Until now, sonar scans at Loch Ness Lake were still nil.
In 2003, the BBC funded a scientific search using 600 sonar beams and satellite tracking to sweep across Loch Ness Lake. As a result, it’s okay there.
Photo evidence in the form of a long neck is not enough to prove it to be a monster. It could be a catfish or a sinking pine tree trunk.
Reuters once wrote, the researchers assessed the monsters in Loch Ness Lake is ‘Wels Catfish’. A giant catfish with a length that can reach 4 meters!
Wels Catfish is a catfish native to Europe and is also found in the Caspian, Baltic to Turki Seas, and China. His body weight can reach 400 kilograms!
Wels Catfish have been reported, attacking humans as happened in Italy, Germany, and Russia. The size of its mouth is broad, it is capable of swallowing humans.
Therefore, many researchers think that the Loch Ness monster is a Wels Catfish, aka giant catfish. Even so, the Loch Ness mystery seems to be a story in itself. Still considered an unsolved mystery.
On the other hand, the tourist attraction to come to Scotland to be precise is Loch Ness Lake. Perhaps, it could photograph sightings of ‘monsters’!
