Deep in the depths of a lake in Scotland called Loch Ness, lives a mystery. The mystery is a creature that hundreds of people claim to have seen in the water. Some believe it’s a large dinosaur-like creature with a long neck and flippers, others believe it is simply a large catfish or even some fallen branches from the nearby forest. The creature, whether it exists or not, is called the Loch Ness Monster, or Nessie and it has been a legend for hundreds of years.
The first “sighting” of the large sea serpent was in 565 A.D. but it wasn’t until the 1930s when a road was built that traveled along the large lake that sightings became more common. In 1934, the first photograph of the Loch Ness Monster was published. It showed a long necked animal with a large hump lurking in the lake. However, many years later it was determined that the photograph was a hoax. Despite all the reports, since 1960 researchers have been unable to prove the Loch Ness monster is real
