The Loch Ness monster

The Loch Ness monster, water creature, is believed to exist in a place known as Loch Ness, situated in Scottish Highlands. Its description, I found is remarkably linked to those of the other water monsters present in the lake. Although, elsewhere it has been described using various other terms. It struck attention and popularity when it was first sighted in the year 1933. It also generated a large amount of interest when its first sonar recording was found. However, scientists and researchers are of the opinion that the entire concept of the Loch Ness monster is a hoax and mix of fantasy and wishful thinking. In spite of all this, it has still been listed as an example of the crypto zoology. Apparently, this mythological monster also goes by the name Nessie.

Furthermore, as I went through more papers I found that this monster was first caught sight by a man hailing from London named George Spicer. He and his wife spotted this most extraordinary creature as he was monitoring around the areas of the Loch. They described it as a creature, closely resembling a sea serpent, a huge dragon or a monster fish. Later on, more sightings were found. People started writing anonymous letters to the Courier. Many people started describing the monster as a magnificent pre-historic creature. Eventually, the monster came to be known as the ‘Loch Ness monster’.
Finally, the police had issued an official order for the public forbidding them to attack the monster. Various historians later started claiming that the first sighting of the monster went back to as far as the 6th century.

In this particular piece of information, I found that the Loch Ness was originally first caught sight in the vicinity surrounding the area, Picts. Where there was a burial going about by the side of the river Ness, the monster was caught sight. However, this seems to be ruled out due to the fact that water beasts were a popular theme for medieval stories.

But what still remains evident, is Mr. Spicer’s description and sighting of the creature. Later, it was caught sighted by a maid servant, Margaret Munroe, who claims to have seen it 200 yards away from the sea shore. She said it looked like it had elephant like skin, two short flippers, a long neck, and small head. She had observed the creature for what she claims to be, 20 minutes. It later disappeared into the sea water.

Although, there were many expeditions conducted to find what it exactly was. There was a LNPIB bureau or the Loch Ness Phenomena Investigation Bureau which was formed around 1962. They conducted annual surveys, searches and many expeditions. They finally closed it down by 1970. It was an unsuccessful search.
Many animals have been misidentified and mistaken for the Loch Ness monster. Animals such as the elephant, eel, seal and many birds were misidentified for the Loch Ness monster.

Even trees, optical wakes, seiches and large wakes were misidentified for the Loch Ness monster.
Till today, nobody has ever been able to find anything related to the so called magnificent creature. The Loch Ness monster still remains one of the biggest and most mysterious creatures ever, in the history of time.
