The Loch Ness Monster has a serpentine appearance and is about 30 - 40 feet long. It has a small head and a long, narrowed neck about 6 feet long. It has a bulking body with a vast hump and flippers 6 - 8 feet long. The portrayal implies a prehistoric plesiosaur or Archaeoceti whale.
The Loch Ness Monster inhabits the narrow Loch Ness Lake in Scotland.
Nessie has been reported as early as the 6th century.
There has been no 100% video or photographic proof that the Loch Ness Monster exists. Also, no remains of the animal has been reported. Sightings could possibly be that of a motor boat. It could also have been a manatee or a zeuglodon (primitive whale). Others could have seen a long-necked seal, giant otter, a giant sea slug or an overgrown eel. Sightings could also have been caused by an underwater wave, pushing debris to the surface that might make it look like a strange animal.
