Loch Ness Monster AKA Nessie

The Loch Ness Monster also referred to as Nessie, is often described as a sea creature that originated from the Jurassic era and is speculated to be a descendant of the plesiosaurs. It is said to inhibit the waters of Loch Ness, the largest body of fresh water in Britain. Sightings of the creature are very rare and typically span between 5 to 10 years dating back to the 1930’s.

Although its description varies from account to account, Nessie has often been depicted as a dinosaur like creature, with a small head that sparingly surfaces above water. It is said to have the face of a dragon, with a neck as long as a serpent. It is rumored to be up to 40 feet in length and about 2,500 pounds with at least two distinct humps resembling that of a camel and four flippers like limbs.

It is still unclear as to why Nessie has yet to be captured despite several efforts; it is believed that somewhere buried deep below the cold frigid waters of Loch Ness there is an underwater cave where the creature lives. Despite national belief that the creature is a monster, many locals believe that Nessie is actually a protector of the sea.
