Has Nessie Been Found?

Has evidence of the Loch Ness Monster been found?

In this report by the Academy of Applied Science dated 2001, evidence was given to suggest that maybe Nessie does exist. Photos of a decaying corpse in 333 ft. of water were taken by a camera equipped ROV.


  They also found an abundant fish population.

LOL! Everytime I go to Loch Ness - which is stunning by the way - Nessy or not :) They is always some new "theroy" - it is quite amusing and entertaining.

Cheers!

I have always loved Nessie stories and wish once and for all they could tell us if she is real or not. And even if they can prove she is non-existent, I dont think the Nessie sightings will ever stop!

I always like to think of Nessie faking us out and getting a laugh in with a nip of Scotch on the side!

I hope they never prove it one way or the other. I like mysteries.

Awesome! Have you heard of Champ in Lake Champlain in Vermont? That is my "Nessie"

Hela said...

AH Nessie, I hope that wasn't he/she. Something like that should live on forever.
Jenny - Champ lives just down the road from me, I haven't seen it YET. : )

While I would love to see Nessie proven real, I think we need the mystery of her more.
But it is interesting that there have been sightings of other lake creatures in other areas of the world.....

I'm also concerned about the type of attention poor Nessie would get if she were proved real. I have a suspicion she'd be hounded, poor thing.

I'd be curious to know whether Lake Champlain has any access to the sea, via underground caverns, a major river basin or whatever.

The outflow source for Lake Champlain is the Richelieu River which then drains into the St. Lawrence River. The St.Lawrence drains into the Atlantic Ocean.
I think that area (called the Champlain Sea) was part of the Atlantic right after the last ice age.
