The Loch Ness monster - real or not?
Closed

A team of scientists from New Zealand's Otago University have released new findings that suggest the Loch Ness monster is probably just a giant eel. Professor Neil Gemmell, who led the study based on environmental DNA, outlined the theory that "these eels would normally migrate to reproduce, but they, for whatever reason, don’t. And they continue to grow to a very large size, forgoing reproduction for growth.”

Since 1933, "sightings" of a monster in Loch Ness have caught the imagination of people from around the world, and there have been numerous high-profile attempts to prove its existence. One of the more popular theories is that the Loch Ness monster is a plesiosaur that somehow survived the extinction of the dinosaurs. Unfortunately Gemmell has debunked this theory, saying that they found absolutely no evidence of reptilian DNA sequences in their research.

Nonetheless, the mystery and uncertainty as to what has been sighted in the loch continues to intrigue people. Do you think there's a Loch Ness monster, and what do you think it is?

I think there is something there, what I don't know, but somehow I'm not sure it's something expected.
