Is there really an unknown monstrous species lurking in the Scottish waters? According to residents of Northern Scotland, the legend couldn't be more true.
The Loch Ness Monster, or Nessie, has been reported for over 200 years as lurking deep in the Loch Ness dividing the northern portion of the country. Sightings are mostly of single body parts protruding from the water; hump, fins, head, etc., due mostly impart to the sheer size of the creature (40-50 feet in length).
Evidence of Nessie's existence has never been captured on film, but sonar readings reveal a large, dense mass located centrally in the Loch's murky waters. If the creature does exist, many researchers suspect that it could be a kind of plesiosaur, an animal from the age of the dinosaurs that is thought to have become extinct more than 66 million years ago.
