A large creature has been caught on video in the River Ness perhaps lending some credibility to one theory on the Loch Ness Monster. It’s been a pretty great time to be a Nessie fan lately with the 14th sighting of the year happening just a short while ago all the way from Hong Kong via some streaming camera footage.
The Loch Ness is connected to the ocean by two main sources, the Caledonian Canal and the River Ness. This is obviously important because it means creatures can get in and out of Scotland’s famous Loch whenever they want to.
The video above was captured by a local fishing board monitoring Salmon activity. In this video however they also captured something rather large swimming around the murky waters.
While we can only see the large creature for a moment, it does appear to be moving quite quickly and resembles an eel of some kind. Clearly we’re not eel experts so don’t get all judgy on us for not giving you more than that. You can see it moving from left to right at the very top almost as soon as the video begins.
This will of course help reinforce a long-standing theory that at least some of the sightings of the Loch Ness Monster could be attributed to large eels swimming in from outside the Loch.
The video of the large creature certainly arrives at an auspicious time as we’re set to receive some interesting information in regards to the Loch today. As we reported just a couple of weeks ago, we’re expecting the results of a DNA study to be released today which teased us with some sort of explanation to the Loch Ness Monster.
Whether the announcement reinforces the eel theory or something altogether new remains to be seen but what is certain is that someone will say the large creature in this video is a log.
Someone always says it’s a log.
