I’ve been known to believe some pretty strange things. Things no one else thinks twice about. Mainly stuff, like Nessie, but this is on the more realistic Fiji Mermaid side.

In this article, I have done my research, collected real data, and will present the facts one by one so that you can make your own decision. Whimsical as it sounds, I think something might be there. Now grab a cup of coffee or a bag of sugar and start reading…

First, the lake. Loch Ness, or the popular ‘Loch’, is a long, deep loch very close to Inverness, Scotland. It is part of a huge fissure in the earth that nearly split Scotland in half. It’s a suitably murky lake perfect for hiding 30 feet. long snakes and plesiosaurs, and can also be up to 900 feet. deep in certain areas. The lake is also extremely cold. Hitting negative readings quite often. But don’t give up hope on Nessie just yet! There are still many facts to be revealed!

Nessia. The lake’s history as a mysterious place dates back more than 1,500 years. We return to the days of a certain Saint Columba. St. Columba was an Irish monk, who not only converted most of Scotland to Christianity, but was also able to calm the original Nessie, who before his time was a murderer. Sightings and speculation about our dear friend Nessie in the modern era (comparatively anyway) begins in 1934, with the first photo of Nessie, taken by Dr. Robert Kenneth Wilson, a London physician, who photographed the neck supposedly plesiosaur-like. , head and part of the body emerging from the water. This photo is below.


This photo caused enough of a stir that some scientific experts entered the picture. After looking at the photo, they ruled that it was obviously a twenty-foot otter or a log sticking vertically out of the water.

One of the most famous photos—aptly titled “Surgeon Photo,” after the photographer’s trade—is below.


Do you notice something similar? Yes. They are the same photo. This photo, as you can see, was a hoax. A pretty cheap organized one at that. An associate of the doctor, Christian Spurling, admitted on his deathbed that the photo was taken with a 14-inch toy submarine, with a piece of wood attached.

The next photo was called “Mackays and Campbell”, and was taken in 1933.


The photo was taken by a couple who own a pub in Drumnadrochit. On April 14, they took the photo and told Alex Campbell, the man responsible for monitoring salmon fishing in the lake. Campbell, of course, agreed that he was, in fact, the Loch Ness Monster, because he had “seen” Nessie numerous times. Like so many other photos, this one simply faded into the background as more and more ‘evidence’ surfaced.

I will offer, as the last photographic proof, this photo:


It is actually a sonar image collected by a study conducted by Dr. Robert Rines and funded by the American Academy of Applied Sciences. The tools used were sonar and automatic cameras. In 1972, one of his cameras photographed what appeared to be a fin, or Nessie herself, about 6 feet long, on 4 frames of film. In 1975, they took another photo, blurry, but it appeared to be Nessie’s face.

The science of its existence

‘And?’ you say. ‘That’s just a bunch of photos and otters.’ Well, here’s the real science, proving or disproving the existence of everyone’s favorite lake monster.

We know the lake is at least 24 miles long, and in places 900 feet deep. This, through a long and boring system of equations, tells us that the lake can support up to 30 metric tons of salmon. Any creature like Nessie would only weigh 10 percent of the total groceries available, so Nessie, if she existed and was single, would weigh around 660 pounds (300 kg). However, there is a problem with that theory. Zoologists have calculated that to perpetuate the species, or small clan of Nessies, there would have to be at least ten of the beast. it’s possible? Each would weigh much less than 660 pounds. This weight is easily surpassed by the Baltic sturgeon, a fish that can grow up to 450 pounds. “but what about the temperature of the lake?” You ask? Well, for Nessie and her friends to live in such cold waters, they would have to be… Let’s see… Adapted to it for 1500 years? Yeah, well, that puts an end to the water thing.

It’s up to you.

Knowing all this, it’s up to you to decide. Can Nessie exist? Are the Loch Scots just money hungry who wear kilts? All I did was state the facts. Now you can draw your own conclusions.
