A group of researchers studied the DNA of multiple species that presumably live in the lake’s water.
The mythical Loch Ness monster could exist, according to new research conducted on the famous Scottish lake, reports The Sun.
An expedition took samples of the water in three different depths, which allowed to obtain remains of skin, scales, feathers, skin and feces that, in turn, made it possible to analyze the DNA of different creatures .
The samples were analyzed in several laboratories in New Zealand, Australia, Denmark and France, and the results are ” surprising “, according to Professor Neil Gemmell, from the University of Otago (New Zealand).
This expert in genomics and biology explained that the results were contrasted with most of the main hypotheses related to the legendary monster.
“Three of them are probably not correct, and one could be,” he said.
One of the theories holds that the ‘Nessie’ could be a plesiosario, of long neck, that would have survived the period of extinction of the dinosaurs. Another suggests that it could be a sturgeon or a giant catfish .
The professor did not specify which of the theories would be correct and which ones were not, limiting himself to saying that he plans to announce the complete findings next month, in Scotland.
Since April 1934, when the supposed first picture of ‘ Nessie ‘ appeared -published by Surgeon’s Photograph-, many have tried to find the child. From time to time, new sightings of the mysterious animal are reported, but it has not yet been captured or found.
