The Loch Ness Monster is a mythical animal that allegedly lives in Loch Ness, large freshwater lake near Inverness, Scotland. Although accounts of aquatic beast living in lake date back 1 500 years, all efforts to find any credible evidence of animals have fail. That hasnt dampened public enthusiasm, however, for any news about Nessie. Loch Ness, located in the Scottish Highlands, has the largest volume of fresh water in Great Britain; body of water reaches a depth of nearly 800 feet and a length of about 23 miles. Scholars of Loch Ness Monster find a dozen references to Nessie in Scottish History, dating back to around 500 AD, when local Picts carved strange aquatic creature into standing stones near Loch Ness.

Reception

In a series of 1975 broadcasts, BBC's beloved time-traveling alien is summon to Scotland to investigate a series of attacks on North Sea oil rigs. The culprit is Skarasen, massive, armored, dinosaur-like cyborg controlled by a ship full of Zygons, malevolent extraterrestrials that have been lurking at the bottom of Loch Ness for centuries. Say extraterrestrials are defeated and their ship is destroyed, but Skarasen remains, and returns to the bottom of Loch. Terror of Zygons was penned by Scottish writer Robert Banks Stewart, who recalls that he was later told by someone that some of the Royal children had watched it and enjoyed it, possibly Prince Edward, and had said it was their favourite story. An Open mind is a job requirement if one is to tackle otherworldly infestations, and when Winston Zeddemore interviews with Ghostbusters, their long-suffering receptionist asks if he believes in UFOs, astral projections, mental telepathy, ESP, clairvoyance, spirit photography, telekinetic movement, full trance mediums, Loch Ness monster and the theory of Atlantis If theres steady paycheck in it, he reply, Ill believe anything you say. In Season 10 of Simpsons, Montgomery Burns takes a novel approach to finding a monster: he has Loch Ness drain of water. Spirit to Springfield via helicopter and revealed to locals, Nessie proves to be lovable, attention-loving beast and ultimately takes a job in a casino, as one do. 1999 was a big year for animated Nessie cameos: s / he appeared in South Park as well, and has a pesky habit of asking Chefs parents for money. JK Rowlings 2001 bestiary, companion to her Harry Potter books, reveals that Loch Ness monster is the world's largest kelpie that is, shape-shifting water demon. The photographic evidence we non-magical Muggles have amassed in the last century is problematic, as the wizarding world would prefer to keep its existence under wraps. Accordingly, Office of Misinformation works day and night to discount new reports of monster.

Tropes used in this film:

2004 Mockumentary write, produced by and starring Werner Herzog and Zak Penn As Themselves, As director and producer of a fictitious documentary about the Loch Ness Monster called Enigma of Loch Ness. Herzog is interested in the psychological significance of Nessie and other paranormal phenomena, which he believes to be purely imaginary, while Penn just wants to sell movie tickets. Neither has any expectation of encountering an actual Monster. Meanwhile, film crew Are Themselves being Film by a second crew under director John Bailey, who are producing the also-fictitious documentary Herzog in Wonderland, salvage pieces of which are then used to make the actual documentary Incident at Loch Ness. Essentially, a documentary within a documentary within a Mockumentary. While we're at it, Enigma of Loch Ness was in real life promoted as if it were a real documentary being made by Herzog in 2003.

St. Columba

On this day, August 22 565,. Columba is said to have encountered the Loch Ness Monster. Columba, you may recall, was trained by Irish monks. However, his youthful Christianity was skin-deep while his passions were strong. He was partly responsible for the battle of Cul-drebene in which many men lost their lives. Repentant, he sailed to Britain as a pilgrim for Christ and founded the monastery of Iona, from which Christianity spread across North Britain. He himself travels and preach, establishing several churches and monasteries. Revere as Saint, his Life was written by Adamnan. In reporting Columba's Life, Adamnan gave what appears to be the first written account of Loch Ness Monster. Traveling in Scotland, Columba had to cross Loch Ness. On its banks, he saw some Pict folk burying a man who had been bitten by a water monster while swimming. Body had been pulled from Loch with the aid of hook by rescuers who had come to his assistance in a boat. Despite the danger, Columba ordered one of his followers to swim across Loch and bring back coble that was moor on the other side. This man's name was Lugne Mocumin. Without hesitation, Lugne strip for swim and plunge in. The monster, robbed of its earlier feast, surfaces and darts at Lugne with a roar, its jaws open. Everyone on the bank was stupefy with terror; everyone, except Columba, that is. A firm believer in the authority of the crucified Christ, he raised his hand, making the sign of the cross. Invoking the name of God, he commanded the beast, saying, you will go no further, and won't touch man; Go back at once. At the voice of the Saint, monster flees as if terrify, more quickly than if it had been pulled back with ropes, says Adamnan. The Heathen were amaze. Everyone who witnesses sight gives glory to the God of Christians. Do events really take place? Church historians may permit few doubts. To begin with, Adamnan's account was written over a hundred years after the alleged events. Furthermore, different versions of the story disagree with one another. One has Columba raising the Monster's first victim from the dead by laying his staff across his chest. We also note that this is only one of many extraordinary events in Adamnan's account. According to him, Columba dripped with prophecies and predictions that come true. He makes water into wine like Jesus, draws water from rock like Moses, calmed storms at sea, provided miraculous draught of fishes, multiply herd of cattle, drove demons out of milk pail, and cure sick. Book owned by Columba could not be destroyed by water. Through his prayers, he kills wild boar, stops serpents from harming inhabitants of certain island. Angels and manifestations of divine light attend him throughout his life. Adamnan's account has so many incredible tales that it is unbelievable.

Loch Ness Monster Sightings

Lake Champlain IS Adirondacks' largest Lake, providing a perfect playground for boating, fishing, water sports and Lake Monsters. That's right, Lake Monsters. For centuries, legends and alleged sightings of enormous swimming MONSTER have captured the imagination of locals, visitors, and even scholars. Indigenous people that have long lived and hunted near Lake Champlain, Abenaki and Iroquois, have their own legends about large creatures inhabiting the lake, which look like large, horned serpents or giant snake. The Abenaki term for this creature IS Gitaskog. Early in the 18 century, Abenakis warned French explorers about disturbing waters OF Lake, so as not to disturb the serpent. Samuel de Champlain, whom Lake IS named after, IS often erroneously credited with being the first European to sight Champ, BUT readings of his accounts show that he saw something near. Lawrence River. Nevertheless, his account OF his sighting IS OF interest to anyone with interest in Lake Monsters! Champlain described what he saw like this:. There IS also a great abundance of many species of fish. Amongst others, there IS one called by natives Chaousarou, which IS of various lengths; BUT the largest OF them, as these tribes have told me, are from eight to ten feet long. I have see some five feet long, which was as big as my thigh, and had a head as large as my two fists, with a snout two feet and a half long, and double rows of very sharp, dangerous teeth. Its body has a good deal shape OF pike; BUT it IS protected by scales OF silvery gray colour and so strong that dagger could not pierce them. Historians think Champ IS probably garfish, class that includes Lake sturgeon, which still live in Lake Champlain today. Champlain's description of creature sounds very much like garfish, albeit much larger than usual. The next famous account appeared in Plattsburgh Republican newspaper on Saturday, July 24 1819. Captain Crum was aboard scow on Bulwagga Bay last Thursday morning when he reported a black MONSTER, about 187 feet long and with a head resembling a sea horse, that rear more than 15 feet out of the water. He claimed the MONSTER he saw had three teeth, eyes the color OF pealed onion, white star on its forehead and a belt OF red around his neck. This IS a remarkable level of detail concerning an object that was, according to the witness, some 200 yards away. 1873 was a busy year for Champ. A New York Times story reported that a railroad crew had seen the head of an enormous serpent in Lake Champlain, with bright silvery scales that glisten in the sun. Both men and MONSTER part ways at that point. In July that same year, Clinton County Sheriff Nathan H. Mooney reported an enormous snake or water serpent he thought was 25 to 35 feet long.

Nessie

Scores of tourists descended on Loch Ness and sat on boats or decked chairs waiting for appearance by beast. Plaster casts of footprints were sent to the British Natural History Museum, which reported that the tracks were that of hippopotamus, specifically one hippopotamus's foot, probably stuff. Hoax temporarily deflates Loch Ness Monster mania, but stories of sightings continue. A famous 1934 photograph seems to show a dinosaur-like creature with a long neck emerging out of murky waters, leading some to speculate that Nessie was a solitary survivor of long-extinct plesiosaurs. Aquatic plesiosaurs were thought to have died off with the rest of dinosaurs 65 million years ago. Loch Ness was frozen solid during recent ice ages, however, so this creature would have had to make its way up River Ness from the sea in the past 10 000 years. And plesiosaurs, believed to be cold-blood, would not long survive in the frigid waters of Loch Ness. More likely, others suggest, it was an archeocyte, primitive whale with a serpentine neck that is thought to have been extinct for 18 million years. Skeptics argue that what people were seeing in Loch Ness were seichesoscillations in the water surface caused by the inflow of cold River water into the slightly warmer Loch.

The Search Continues

Amateur investigators keep almost constant vigil, and in the 1960s several British universities launched expeditions to Loch Ness, using sonar to search deep. Nothing conclusive was find, but in each expedition, sonar operators detected large, moving underwater objects they could not explain. In 1975, Bostons Academy of Applied Science combined sonar and underwater photography in an expedition to Loch Ness. Photo results that, after enhancement, appear to show the giant flipper of a plesiosaur-like creature. Further sonar expeditions in the 1980s and 1990s resulted in more tantalizing, if inconclusive, readings. Revelations in 1994 that the famous 1934 photo was a hoax hardly dampened enthusiasm of tourists and professional and amateur investigators to the legend of the Loch Ness Monster.

What did they find?

The study detected over 500m individual organisms and 3 000 species. According to Neil Gemmill of University of Otago in New Zealand, who led the study, there are no DNA sequence matches for shark, catfish, or sturgeon. That rules out large exotic fish in Loch. There are DNA matches for various land-living species that you would expect to see around Loch Ness, including badgers, deer, rabbits, voles, and different birds. Sheep, cattle and dogs appear on record alongside humans too. This suggests that sampling is pretty good at picking up species that would only rarely visit water-so it should be able to detect monsters living permanently in Loch. The most popular representation of Nessie is as plesiosaur-ancient long-necked marine reptile that died out alongside dinosaurs in the last great mass extinction 65m years ago. Scottish geologist Hugh Miller discovered the first British plesiosaur bones on the Scottish Isle of Eigg in 1844. But according to Gemmill, there is not a single reptile in our vertebrate data, and nothing that sits in expect place that plesiosaur sequence might be predict to lie-somewhere between birds and crocodilians. The most likely candidate for Nessie that has surfaced in media reporting of research is Giant Eel. This appears to be based simply on the fact that eel DNA was detected at pretty much every location sample in Loch Ness. Plenty of eel DNA doesnt confirm that Nessie is a giant eel-only that there are lots of eels. Scientists do have Monster DNA to compare with anything they find in Loch and so no one can say for sure if there is or isnt Monster there. But the absence of anything unusual in the DNA record of Loch Ness suggests theres nothing to get excited about-and that includes giant eel.
