Loch Ness Monster

This image, taken by an Apple map satellite, depicts a shadowy form of around 100 feet in length with something akin to flippers in the water of the Loch Ness. The image has been studied for six months by experts at the Official Loch Ness Monster Fan Club, the Club has concluded the shadow is most probably the Loch Ness Monster. This sighting is the first reported in 18 months, the longest that Nessie has been missing since 1925.

In 2007 Gordon Holmes, a 55 year old English lab technician, claimed to have captured the most compelling evidence of the fabled Loch Ness Monster. ‘I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw this jet black thing, about 45-feet long, moving fairly fast in the water’, said Mr Holmes

This underwater photo, taken in 1972, seems to show a plesiosaur-like creature. 

Bank manager Peter MacNab snapped a photo of something large moving through the water of the loch near Urquhart Castle in July 1955


Taken in 1972, this photograph seems to show the Loch Ness Monster moving towards the right with its hump protruding well above the surface and its mouth open


In 1951, Lachlan Stuart took a picture of mysterious humps rising from the loch. Author Richard Frere later revealed that Stuart had confessed to him the humps were nothing more than bales of hay

On November 12, 1933, Hugh Gray was walking back from church along the shore of Loch Ness when he saw an 'object of considerable dimensions, making a big splash with spray on the surface of the Loch’

Dubbed the Loch Ness Muppet, this 1977 attempt to prove the monster’s existence proved to be a fake. 

The “Surgeon’s Photograph” (pictured above) is purported to be the first photo of a “head and neck”, and is one of the most iconic Nessie photos. Supposedly taken by Robert Kenneth Wilson, a London gynaecologist, it was published in the Daily Mail on 21 April 1934. Wilson’s refusal to have his name associated with the photograph led to it being nicknamed the “Surgeon’s Photograph”. He claimed that he was looking at the loch when he saw the monster, so he grabbed his camera and snapped four photos. Only two exposures came out clear: the first one shows what was claimed to be a small head and back, while the second one shows a similar head in a diving position. The first one became iconic, while the second attracted little publicity because it was difficult to interpret what was depicted, due to its blurry quality.

Fun fact , There is a fish called  the sarcastic fringehead that lives in a large shell and goes completely aggro whenever anything gets to close. It also shows dominance to others of its species by opening it’s mouth like an umbrella and bashing it against its rival’s like they're aggressively making out. Below is a picture of this terrifying little sea demon.Here have some nightmares, you’re welcome.

10 Creepy Sea Creatures You Didn’t Know Existed


Did you know any of these amazing and scary deep sea creatures? It’s hard to believe these bizarre animals exist.

It’s amazing how little we know about the many forms of marine life in the ocean.

Out of 230 000 species that we know of so far, it’s feasible to assume that there are many more we just don’t have on record.

However,…

That terrifying monstrosity is the Brittle Sea Star. It’s obviously coming out of its tank to destroy us all.

In another case of “sea creatures do amazing things and will probably come out of their oceans in a mass uprising one day”, scientists at Brown University have shown that brittle stars move with bilateral symmetry, which is kind of crazy, because their bodies are pentaradially (I learned a new word) symmetric. To get themselves around, one leg acts as a sort of control center for the others, which do its bidding. To turn, another leg takes charge and the others start to follow it. I guess this explains why these things look so damn creepy when they move.

(The backstory: I used to work at the educational center of a zoo. One of my responsibilities was the touch tank. I’d happily pick up regular sear stars because they just sat there. But once a brittle star was picked up, it would start waving its arms around and trying to move on you. I was so freaked out by this that I picked one up once and refused to ever again.)

Like Marlin always tells you, the Big Blue is a dangerous place. From stinging jellyfish to hungry sharks and creepy deep-sea creatures, there’s no shortage of ways for a little…

Strange Never-Before-Seen Sea Creatures Discovered 20,000 Feet Under The Sea

These alien-looking creatures were discovered by America’s Ocean Exploration Team on the seafloor near Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands. The Puerto Rico Trench is deepest trench in the Atlantic Ocean, reaching depths of up to 8,800 m and extending for over 800 km.

95% of the ocean remains unexplored… Many of the these deep-sea dwelling animals are rarely seen, and some creatures were so new that they don’t even have a name. 100 species of fish, 50 species of deep-water corals, and hundreds of other invertebrates were recorded over 12 dives.
