A new discovery regarding the nature of ancient plesiosaurs has prompted several scientists to declare that the existence of the legendary Loch Ness Monster is “plausible”, at least in regard to the elusive cryptid’s chosen freshwater habitat. The discovery in question involves the recovery of small plesiosaur fossils in a 100 million-year-old
Another potential sighting of the legendary Loch Ness Monster has been made, the fourteenth such sighting of the elusive ‘Nessie’ made this year alone. This new sighting is somewhat more unusual than earlier claims, in that it was made from nearly 10,000 kilometers (6,200 miles) away, by an amateur monster
A university professor from New Zealand is planning to put our modern knowledge of genetics to work in solving a decades-old mystery: does the Loch Ness Monster, nicknamed ‘Nessie’, actually exist?
The University of Otago’s Professor Neil Gemmell is proposing that new genomic forensic techniques be used to search for the elusive creature. While Nessie gained widespread popularity via the oft-debunked "surgeon’s photograph" published in 1934, legends of a large creature living in the lake predate the famous picture. Numerous sightings have been reported over the past century, along with the publication of dozens of photographs that allegedly depict Nessie.

Scotland’s Nessie has also been identified as a dinosaur–could these creatures be the last remnants of an ancient era?
