While multiple Loch Ness-type lake monsters have been popping up around the globe, the real Loch Ness Monster has just been chilling out in Scotland, making the occasional appearance.
Earlier this year, a scientist claimed to have debunked the theory that the Loch Ness Monster is just a giant eel.
However, that theory is just one of many that have been put forth trying to explain the over 1,100 reported sightings of Nessie since 1933.
What can’t be disputed is the fact that Eoin O’Faodhagain is the most prolific Loch Ness Monster hunter on the planet.
After more than four months without a single peep out of Nessie, O’Faodhagain has made multiple sightings by regularly monitoring Loch Ness using webcams. In total, he has had around 20 sightings of the Loch Ness Monster since 2017.
“Moving wake in the middle of the Loch Ness, at 20.03.48 timestamp, moving from left to right,” he wrote about his latest sighting, published this week.
“The wake is really only appreciated when the rotating webcam stops to the left, for a short pause.
“Clearly it is not a bird wake with a V in the water, just a single line like something is just touching the surface from underneath the water,” he continued.
“On the next sweep of the webcam, wake was gone.”
Speaking to the Mirror, O’Faodhagain said he was “blown away,” adding, “the length of the visible wake is in excess of 20 feet, and the creature responsible must be very large underneath the water.
“Certainly it’s too large for known animals or fish that live in the loch – otters would never reach sizes of that magnitude, or seals for that matter.”
Earlier this month, Eoin O’Faodhagain reported that based on new footage there may actually be more than one creature in the loch.
Over the past century, Loch Ness Monster sightings have been blamed on everything from otters and catfish to a type of undiscovered turtle and a surviving plesiosaur.
Perhaps the most interesting theory though posits that Nessie isn’t any of those things and actually exists in a parallel universe, which would explain why the creature is always able to disappear before anyone can get too close to get a decent photo or video of the monster.
Could Nessie be traveling between universes in a similar fashion to how the kids in Stranger Things use gates to visit the Upside Down? Or could such a portal lead to visions of this parallel universe that can only be seen by certain types of people?
If that theory ever turned out to be true, it could go a long way towards explaining why another legendarily elusive creature, Bigfoot, has appeared in dozens of countries around the world over centuries yet has never been caught or even photographed well.
