The deepest lake of Scotland is the Loch ness, the depth of which is about 230 meters. Thousands of years ago Roman soldiers invaded Scottish lands and found on the rocks images of animals — the most unusual of them was something like a big seal with a long neck. It was then that arose the legend that the Loch ness lives a monster that from time to time catches the eye of people. In the entire history of humanity there were more than 1,000 cases of a collision with a mysterious creature, but as evidence of the witnesses show only blurred photos and videos. Recently about the Loch Ness monster again, because one man started to assure that also removed the mysterious creature on camera.
Photo of the Loch Ness monster
According to the publication ScienceAlert, new photo of the Loch Ness monster was published in Facebook around the middle of June. The author wrote that he had noticed the monster by accident when in 2019 I went on a tour of the medieval castle Urquhart. He saw ripples in the water and pulled out the camera to photograph this phenomenon. After some time out of the water appeared the head of a mysterious creature and disappeared as quickly as it had appeared. Eventually the man took only one photo.
The Creator is dedicated to the mysterious beings of the group in Facebook, shared that he does not believe in the ancient legend, and believes that most sightings have a logical explanation. He suggested that the man captured a huge catfish (Silurus glanis), body length which is approximately 3 meters and weight up to 400 pounds. As it turned out, his assumption was correct, because Internet users quickly found proof that the photo was made in photoshop.
From catfish has an interesting feature — patterns on their body are unique, just like fingerprints of humans. On the published pictures you can see that on the back of the alleged Loch Ness monster has a pretty big spot. Users quickly realized that the same “BLOB” is on the body caught in Italian river By a huge catfish, which became known in 2019. Its body length was 268 inches, and weight was 130 pounds.

According to the blog of the Loch Ness Mystery, the author works with 3D graphics, so he could easily fake this. But why he did is not clear. Apparently, they are motivated by a desire to declare itself as about the person who found confirmation of the existence of creatures of a given legend. Only here to do this tried thousands of people and none of them have failed to convince society of the rightness of his words.
The most famous photo of the Loch Ness monster is the frame captured in 1934, a London doctor, Kenneth Wilson (Kenneth Wilson). On the submitted picture shows something similar to a floating dinosaur. The author claimed that filmed the monster accidentally when walking around the lake and watched birds. In 1994 it became clear that this photo is fake, created, along with three accomplices. Assistants the once respected physician themselves confessed.
As the number of reports of the Loch Ness monster was in the thousands, scientists have tried many times to find it in the framework of specially organized studies. In 2016, British researchers used a robot called Munin to how much detail learned the bottom of the mysterious lake. Fishermen reported that at the bottom of Loch ness is cleft to a depth of 1500 meters, which could be hiding an ancient creature. However, no indentations on the bottom of the lake was found.
