Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – Nessie is the most hunted monster in the world today. It is known that a large-scale hunt took place in Loch Ness, Scottish Highlands on August 26 2023 local time.
Everyone moved in search of the mythological creature. From researchers, many others, to drones with thermal scanners as well as infrared cameras and underwater hydrophones were deployed in the search.
One of those who joined the search was Tatiana Yeboah (21). He explained that finding Ness had been his dream for a long time.
“It could be a myth, it could be real. I believe this is something that is in between the two,” said the tourist from France, quoted from Channel News Asia, Sunday (27/8/2023).
The story of the water monster arose from ancient times. The rock carvings depict a mysterious animal with fins.
Based on the biography of the Irish monk, Saint Columba, the creature was recorded as dating from 556 AD. The animal was said to want to attack him after previously doing the same thing to a swimmer.
Records of the existence of the Loch Ness Monster reappeared in May 1933. The local Inverness Courier newspaper said a husband and wife who were driving along the lake noticed an extraordinary upheaval in the water.
Until now, The Loch Ness Center in Drumnadrochit has reported at least 1,100 reports of Nessie sightings.
Over the years too, many people have tried to find the animal. Some have attempted to guess at species, for example possibly prehistoric marine reptiles such as the plesiosaurs.
One of the largest searches of the Loch Ness Bureau of Investigation came to nothing in 1972. Next, 15 years later, operation Deepscan conducted a sonar search and claimed to have found an object unidentified of unusual size and strength.
Meanwhile, a DNA survey was carried out in Loch Ness in 2018. The goal was to find out what organisms lived in those waters, but reportedly there was no sign of plesiosaurs or other large animals.
