Henry Bauer believes that existing descriptions of the creature fit the behaviour of turtles, known for their relatively long necks and cold-water activity.

Henry Bauer, a retired professor at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, believes he has solved the riddle of Scotland’s most famous mysterious creature, the legendary Loch Ness monster.

“The most popular idea is that the Loch Ness monster has a relationship with extinct plesiosaurs,” says Daily Record. However, the American scientist does not believe that Nessie is one of these marine reptiles, since the alleged sightings and descriptions of ‘Nessie’ – says Bauer, 89 – closely resemble the behaviour of turtles.

“They breathe air, but they spend very long periods in deep water, they venture on land, they are very fast in the water, they have the ability to be active in very cold waters and their necks are relatively long,” he explained.

According to Bauer, a retired professor of Chemistry and Scientific Studies, the Loch Ness monster could be an ancient sea turtle that has not yet been discovered and that may have been trapped in the lake when water levels dropped in the late Late Age of Ice about 12,000 years ago.
