There have been reported sightings of the Loch Ness Monster since way back in the sixth century. Over 1,100 have been recorded by the Official Loch Ness Monster Register. And yet, no one has been able to provide definitive proof that the creature is real.
Many theories have been put forth over the years, but none have been able to be confirmed.
Last week, based on new webcam footage of Loch Ness, produced another one.
Eoin O’Faodhagain, who regularly monitors the body of water for Loch Ness Monster sightings, believes this new footage may reveal that their are, in fact, more than one creature.
“It is obvious that the two Nessie-like humps are moving over a two-minute period, and the larger hump of the two has changed position from the smaller one,” said O’Faodhagain.
“Given the fact that there is no disturbance of water visible between objects you would have to concur they are two separate moving creatures.”
“What animal could be that long?” O’Faodhagain continued, noting the size of the creatures in the video.
“What is strikingly obvious about sightings at Loch Ness is that eyewitnesses could be viewing two different creatures co-existing in the one lake.
“What the other creature is could be completely unknown. What we do know is there are a hell of a lot of eels in Loch Ness, having the odd rogue giant one is not beyond the realm of reality.”
This latest sighting took place using a Visit Inverness Loch Ness webcam locayed at Shoreland Lodges, near Fort Augustus on the loch’s southern shore.
“This is only my opinion – of Nessie being two different creatures – hence the abundance of different descriptions we have for her,” O’Faodhagain added.
Last year, scientists claimed that the existence of the Loch Ness Monster is “plausible” thanks to a discovery of fossils of small plesiosaurs in a freshwater river.
Perhaps the most interesting theory regarding the mysterious creature is that it actually exists in a parallel universe.
Scottish paranormal investigator Ron Halliday lends credence to that theory.
“With the Loch Ness monster, people could be seeing a dinosaur that existed in the past. They may see something that looks solid, but isn’t actually in our world. That can spread across a whole range of things, such as UFO sightings,” he said.
“Some people are more psychic than others. They can pick up these experiences while others may not,” Halliday added. “It’s possible that some may walk into these portals without realizing it, then they can see these things.
“They are having genuine experiences. In a way, this is speculation. But to my mind, it does provide an explanation to a whole range of paranormal phenomena.”
Back in May of 2020, NASA found evidence of a parallel universe where time goes backwards and the rules of physics are the opposite, so is it possible that’s why no one has been able to lock down definitive evidence of the Loch Ness Monster’s existence?
