The Loch Ness Monster

Hello! You now know about the Ningen, so now I want to talk about something a little more familiar.

You may have heard of the Loch Ness Monster (and who hasn't?), and you have probably 
seen the iconic "Surgeon's Photo."
Surgeon's Photo
This photo was taken in 1933 by a surgeon when a new road was built alongside Loch Ness. It's now proved to be a fake.
But before people found out that it was a fake, the "Nessie Craze" swept the world. Thousands of tourists flocked around to the loch in an attempt to catch a glimpse of Nessie. Some people were so desperate to take a photo of her, they went through all odds to even fake photos.

One bloke even took a photo of his dog swimming with a stick in its mouth and claimed that it was Nessie.

A team went in mini submarines and used sonar to try and find Nessie. They did come up with some good photos like "the Flipper" but no hardcore, solid evidence.

The Flipper
The mystery of Nessie still goes on. Is she just a legend, or is she really a monster who enjoys a bit of hide and seek?
