a scientist claims to have discovered which animal is the Loch Ness monster

New theory about the monster Lake Ness, in Scotland. On this occasion, it has been raised by Henry bauer, professor of chemistry and scientific studies at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University. The results of Bauer’s research suggest that Nessi is not only real, but also there could be more than one creature.

Specifically, Bauer assures that the animal (or animals) that would inhabit the famous lake could be a variety of sea turtle that has not yet been discovered. In reality, it would be an evolution of ancient sea turtles that would have been trapped in the lake when the waters receded in the last Ice Age.

Thus, this scientist discards the theories that claim that a dinosaur hides behind this mysterious creature. “Most of the theories that relate the Loch Ness monster to a dinosaur do so with plesiosaurs extinct, but this hard to believe due to the rarity of sightings on the surface let alone taking into account the occasional sightings on land”, Explained this teacher, according to ‘Daily Star’.

According to Henry Bauer, there could be more than one creature in Loch Ness

On the other hand, everything described for the Loch Ness monsters matches many species of living turtles, as well as extinct turtles.. They breathe air but spend a lot of time in deep water. They venture on land, they are very fast in the water, they have the ability to be active in very cold waters and their necks are relatively long ”, said the expert in the aforementioned newspaper.

Bauer has also given his opinion on another of the more recent theories. And it is that in 2019, a team of researchers from New Zealand that carried out a DNA analysis on the Ness side determined that Nessie could be a giant eel. “No evidence supports the idea that they are monstrously large eels,” said the scientist about it.

The Loch Ness monster, a tourist phenomenon

In Scottish mythology there was already talk of a creature that lived in Loch Ness, but the history of the place gained popularity when, in 1933, came to the press after an anonymous correspondent recounted how a married couple had seen her on the surface of the lake. That same year there were several sightings but little conclusive evidence, and no one saw her again until 1951.

In 1960, the aeronautical engineer Tim dinsdale managed to film something: a hump that left a trail of water when crossing the lake. Many believed that it was Nessie. “Tim Dinsdale’s 1960 film is conclusive proofBut there are also countless sonar contacts, some excellent underwater photography, and some plausible surface photography, ”Bauer says.

But attempts to capture the mysterious creature continued and in 1987 the Deepscan operation, in which The 227 meters deep and 36 kilometers long of the lake were studied. However, they found absolutely nothing. But despite this, Loch Ness has continued to be a popular tourist enclave which receives about a million people every year.
