A band of scientists teasingly announced that it had evidence to provide a "plausible theory" to explain the Loch Ness Monster, only to disappoint Nessie fans around the world. The team at New Zealand's University of Otago reckons that the monster is not a monster at all but instead a giant eel, one of several perhaps, having analysed DNA taken from water samples. That may be so, but the legend will never die, so here are 50 facts we have about Nessie It was published in the Daily Mail on April 21, Mr Wilson didn't want his name associated with the picture, which explains its nickname the "Surgeon's Photograph".
There are plenty of exaggerations, myths, and outright lies circulating about the so-called Loch Ness Monster. This legend is especially galling to paleontologists, who are constantly being told by people who should know better and by overeager reality-TV producers that Nessie is a long-extinct dinosaur or marine reptile. Sure, Sasquatch, the Chupacabra, and Mokele-mbembe all have their devotees. But the Loch Ness Monster is far and away the most famous "cryptid" — that is, a creature whose existence has been attested to by various "eyewitnesses" and which is widely believed in by the general public, but is still not recognized by establishment science. The pesky thing about cryptids is that it's logically impossible to prove a negative, so no matter how much huffing and puffing the experts do, they can't state with percent certainty that the Loch Ness Monster doesn't exist.

Some say it's a myth; others say it's a living dinosaur or even a sea serpent that swam into the lake before it became landlocked. Whether real or fictional, it is what Scotland is best known for around the world aside from whiskey, bagpipes and kilts. Some claim that the Loch Ness monster was first reported in A. Columba turned away a giant beast that was threatening a man in the Ness River, which flows into the lake. However tempting it is to suggest that the encounter was a true historical record of the beast's existence, it is only one of many church myths about righteous saints vanquishing Satan in the form of serpents and dragons. In fact, there are no reports of the beast until less than a century ago.
