Answers to Questions Kids Ask! - Where "Why?" Turns to "Wow!"
The Loch Ness Monster, fondly known as Nessie, is believed to live in the inky black waters of the immense, 700-foot-deep, Loch (Lake) Ness in Scotland.
The Loch Ness Monster remains one of the world’s most famous mysteries. Nessie is thought to be a giant creature with a huge rounded body, maybe 100 feet long, and a long neck. Some think it is a prehistoric seagoing dinosaur, pleiosaur.
Sightings of Nessie date as far back as the 6th Century, when an Irish monk caught sight of the monster while visiting the area. Although Nessie had always been a legend in Scotland, it wasn’t until 1934 when Dr. Robert Kenneth Wilson got a photo of the legendary lake monster that the tourist industry really boomed. During the expedition in 1934, at the height of ?monster fever?, there were 21 claimed sightings and 5 pictures taken. Though ?Nessie? has been sighted many times proof of her existance is still not know.
No one has yet caught this elusive creature or scientifically proved its existence, and maybe they never will. Tales of the Loch Ness Monster may also be the basis for stories of similar freshwater serpents in other places. Does the Loch Ness Monster exist? Some people say yes, some say no… maybe someday we will know the truth.
