Is There A Real Life Loch Ness Monster?
In Scotland in the Scottish Highlands there is a monster, one that lives the depths of Loch Ness. The lochs have been a controversial place due to many mysteries that surround it.
None of them greater then a creature of myth and lore discovered in the early 1930’s.
Many people from the area have claimed to see powerful waves coming off the tops of two enormous humps in the water, with sighting of a large animals silhouette in the depths.
The legend of a creature that rules the loch may have been around even earlier as some predict, leading people to not know how old the creature is.
Even if more than one exist is still a mystery. How can a creature so big elude us? With our vast technological equipment,
we should be able to pinpoint anything down to a foot in length, or more. Yet, we can not seem to locate this animal, and maybe that is because of where it lives.
The loch itself covers 22 sq miles, with the lowest point being 230 meters. There is plenty of room for a giant to hide.
Underneath the surface everything looks calm, till a head and long neck emerge from the water. You know what that sounds like, a dinosaur.
From what we can tell from the description of Nessie, aka the Loch Ness Monster, it is a reptilian creature.
From one description by George Spicer and his wife, a creature having a long body about 4 feet high and 25 feet long, with a wavy, narrow neck, slightly thicker than the trunk of an elephant, 10-12 foot wide.
The strange thing is that they saw no limbs. According to some accounts Nessie has flippers, if the creature was standing on the road then they may have been slightly hidden to the Spicer's.
The most famous photo showed Nessie with one hump the long neck and head out of the water.
One trademark feature about the Loch Ness Monster is the shape of its head, which is shaped like a horses head. So where would a monster like this come from.
Loch Ness is a large body of water, but where did Nessie come from. One of the most realistic ideas is that Nessie is a dinosaur, more specifically Plesiosaur.
The Plesiosaur lived millions of years ago along with the dinosaurs.
The origins of Nessie could be as simple as that dinosaur find a way to survive through the centuries whether it is in the depths of the water, or in a underground cave, where they can be left alone outside the reach of humans.
To me this is the most likely scenario if Nessie is real. What are the chances that this is mistaken identity though?
Through the years there have been thoughts that the Loch Ness Monster is nothing but bad vision.
Some people explain that they thought they saw something and it winds up being a piece of drift wood.
Even some types of snakes are rather large. If you have ever seen photos of anacondas swimming through the amazon river, you will know exactly what I mean.
Many people see things that they want to see, whether its because they are day dreaming, and their minds want to really see something so it makes it up.
The fact is that so many people have seen things in the Loch that its hard to dismiss the stories.
So where was the first sighting of this magnificent monster, researchers say it is as early as the sixth century AD, by the creator of “The life of St. Columba” Adomnan. Saint Columba was burying a man by the River Ness.
The was attacked by a large creature from the water. He called it a “water beast”.
They tried rescuing the man but he died.
Columba sent a follower to find the beast, when the beast tried to attack, Columba made the sign of the cross and the beast as if pulled with ropes, was pulled back and away from the followers.
Many people don’t believe this story, believe instead that this story is a retelling of stories from long before that in medieval times.
If you have anymore you want me to find out about this beast or any thing you can think of you want to say, leave a comment below.
We all love the paranormal the unknown and everything that revolves around it. We have the same things in our lives, energy, spirits, call it whatever you want, but something is out there. Waiting for us while it lurks in the shadows.
The feeling of being woke up by a small noise in room, only to open your eyes and not be able to see through the darkness, having to guess if you are safe or not. This has always been my life,
I have always felt things that I couldn't see, some of us can just tell when something is there. Which we should all feel because there are energies around us constantly.
My adventures in the paranormal have brought me to haunted houses, on ghost tours, and more recently podcast.
