18 Foot Long Sea Serpent Found - Could this be in Loch Ness?

Photo courtesy of youtube
The discovery of an 18-foot oarfish off Catalina Island thrilled the staff at Catalina Island Marine Institute. Now they're wondering: What do you do with the carcass of a very rare 18-foot-long fish?

Jeff Chace, program director of the institute, said it took about 15 people on Sunday to lug the serpent-like "leviathan" onto shore after it was discovered dead in about 20 feet of water.

"It just amazed me," he said.

Giant oarfish are the longest of the bony fish species -- topping out at around 56 feet in length -- but even at 18 feet, a carcass can be a challenge for scientists.

The marine institute is awaiting results of several samples sent out to researchers, including at UC Santa Barbara, but in the meantime, staff members say they lack the capacity to store it.

"This is a once-in-a-lifetime discovery," Chace said.

Institute members are now mulling the fate of the dead fish. One option on the table is to bury it in 3 feet of sand, then let it decompose over a couple of months. After that, the skeleton of the fish would be mounted, and thus preserved.

Giant oarfish are rarely seen, dead or alive. By mounting the skeleton, it would continue to wow staff and visitors alike.

An instructor snorkeling in the waters of Toyon Bay on Sunday stumbled upon the carcass after seeing a "half-dollar-sized eye starting at her from the sandy bottom," Chace said.

The instructor was in 15 to 20 feet of water at the time, he added.

Chace said there were no marks on the oarfish, and it was unclear how it died. Researchers hope to determine more about the animal and how it wound up in Toyon Bay through the samples sent in by marine institute.,0,5192122.story

Most Convincing Loch Ness Monster Photo Ever Fake

"My Nessie picture IS a hoax!: Cruise boat skipper who took the most convincing Loch Ness Monster photo ever admits he faked the image with a fibre-glass hump"

It was billed as some of the most convincing evidence that the Loch Ness Monster did exist.
But now the skipper behind the image of Nessie has confirmed it is a fake.

George Edwards owned up to the hoax - saying he'd created the fraud for 'a bit of fun'.
The 61-year-old simply photographed the same fake hump that featured in a National Geographic documentary, Truth Behind the Loch Ness Monster, from 2011.

Today Mr Edwards, who was involved in the production of the documentary and had access to the fake hump, said he had no regrets about the picture despite fooling people for over a year...

Iceland's Loch Ness Monster Caught on Video

Story by Jamie Lewis

A video posted online has excited monster hunters in Iceland with apparent proof of the existence of the mythical Icelandic creature Lagarfjots Worm - Iceland's answer to Scotland's Loch Ness Monster.

Cameraman Hjortur Kjerulf captured the giant, icy snake swimming in the Jokulsa í Fljotsdal river, which empties into Lake Lagarfljot.

The Lagarfjots Worm, which is also known as Lagarfljotsormurinn, is first mentioned in sources dating back to 1345AD. According to Nordic legend, it was first a tiny worm which was put on a ring of gold to make the ring grow, Iceland Review explained.

When the owner of the worm returned, she discovered that it had grown enormous but the ring was still the same size as before. In frustration, she threw both the worm and the ring into the lake, where the worm continued to grow even bigger.

Sceptics say the video merely shows a torn fishing net which froze in the river, but the sleek movements of whatever it is that was filmed suggests otherwise.

The Ongoing Story of the Loch Ness Monster

The Ongoing Story of the Loch Ness Monster

3_61_loch_ness_monsterLoch Ness is located in the North of Scotland and is one of a series of interlinked loch's which run along the great Glen. For many years now this has been the home of likely the most famous lake monster in history the "Loch Ness Monster" or better know as "Nessie". There have been nessie sightings going on in the loch for at least the last 100 years. Through many sightings and media reports the legend of nessie has continued to grow throughout the years.

Loch Ness is a massive loch reaching twenty two and a half miles long and between one and one and a half miles wide with depths in the range of 750-800 ft. It is the largest fresh water body of water in Britain. The loch is thought to have been connected to the ocean at two different points in history lending credence to the fact that large creatures could have become trapped in the loch. The size and depth of this great loch made it extremely difficult to explore even with modern technology. This alone helps to feed the possibility of there being a yet undiscovered creature inhabiting loch ness even today.

The sighting of nessie and various reports have offered an array of photo's and descriptions of the creature through out the years. Many reports have been published and details made public from as far back as 1933 by locals Mr & Mrs Mackay who spotted the creature while driving down the lochside and in 1934 on April 19th which is one of the most well known nessie sightings to date. This sighting was reported by Robert Kenneth Wilson and it was this sighting that produced the "Surgeons Photo" which is now a widely recognisable photo (shown above). This photo has had the most impact on the nessie legend over the last 66 years and brought up many many debates on its authenticity. This photo fueled the idea that the creature in the loch may be a thought to be extinct Plesiosaur. In 1960 Tim Dinsdale is credited with taking what is now considered to be the greatest piece of evidence proving the existence of Nessie. On April 23rd after being on the lake for several days exploring he took a 16MM camera video of the creature moving across the loch and then turning parallel to the far shore and headed down the loch before running out of film. The film was later developed and instantly became proof of some unknown animal inhabiting the loch. This film was further studied by the RAF in 1966 and a conclusion was made that it was not a surface vessel of any kind but some animate object in Loch Ness.

The debate goes on among scientist as to the question of the loch having enough food to sustain a breading population of such large creatures. Some scientist claim that studies done of the loch's food chain show 1-27 tonnes and many say that is simply not enough to feed such a population of creatures. Although other do argue that the large amounts of salmon that migrate into the loch each year along with the large amounts of eels could easily boost these food source numbers and easily sustain a food source over the years for such creatures.

With the amount of sightings from people living on the loch all there lives and visitors abound its hard to deny that there is something very interesting and mysterious about Loch Ness whether that be Nessie or not. The only thing that can be done is to continue to research the loch and take into account the new sightings and stories and keep a close eye out for the piece of evidence that can one day prove the creatures existence.

Does Loch Ness contain the creature everyone has become enchanted with? Does Nessie truly exist and is just waiting to be discovered?

Loch Ness Monster - One of the Most Famous Creatures of Cryptozoology

Loch Ness Monster - One of the Most Famous Creatures of Cryptozoology

loch_ness_monster_05For a long time the Loch Ness Monster has been a creature of cryptozoology that has been sighted in the Lake (Loch) Ness in Scotland. This creature resembles a large aquatic serpent plesiosaur, which today is best known as Nessie, a nickname given by its fans, whether existing or not, the monster is a celebrity today. In fact, there are video cams and web cams on different points of the lake waiting for Nessie to be caught. Many people have relocated to tents and mobile homes nearby waiting for the long time awaited "idol" in which there is a reward for whoever sees him arise from the depth of the waters either live or through the cams installed for that purpose.

There are many theories surrounding the Loch Ness Monster. Considering the time from when it was first reportedly seen to today, it is possible that any actual living Nessie's could be the offspring of many generations from the original monster. Mosy researchers believe that there is more than one Nessie or there is a possible underwater passage that allows the monster to travel. In the United States, a similar monster has been reported in Lake Champlain, Vermont. This creature is known as Champ or Champie, supporting the idea of a possible underwater passageway allowing Nessie to travel from Scotland to the USA, changing its identity.

Although the monster was widely publicized in the early 1960s, the first report was made in 1930. However, the documented sighting of a plesiosaur, a water-bound creature, in 1923 made cryptozoologist believe that the specimen of these monsters existed in the lake at least 200 years ago. However, the description of the creature's appearance suggests an older origin. Expeditions to the bottom of the lake began in the early 1970s, when a group led by American Dr. Robert Rines obtained vague underwater photographs.

Although, many people claim to have seen the monster in recent years, the cameras installed show movement in the lake but no clear shots of Nessie and nobody has claimed the reward yet, but Nessie's enthusiasts keep watching the lake religiously.

In the United Kingdom, the confirmed existence of Nessie is irrelevant because the monster has a mythological meaning to the British people, but particularly to the Scottish that do not need proof to believe in the monsters existence. Modern urban legend or traditional Celtic myth, there is a popular belief rumored from person to person by way of legend saying that a certain hornpipe melody has the ability to attract Nessie to the surface, however only a few people that know the music are still alive today.

There is a website that describes this and numerous other creatures of Cryptozoology in detail. The website is called: Unknown Creatures, and may be found at this address =>

I Saw The Loch Ness Monster - A True Story Of Inexplicable Events!

I Saw The Loch Ness Monster - A True Story Of Inexplicable Events!

lochnessThe much feared great white shark has been regarded as non-existent, in UK waters. Until very recently that is! Apart from recent claimed sightings from fishermen in Cornwall and from Newhaven and other fishing ports, there had been no 'proof' that great whites frequent the cold coastal waters of the UK. There has never been a recorded shark attack in the UK as far as I can find and the chances of attack, even off California where great whites hunt seals, are still ridiculously low. Sharks are intelligent too in their own highly developed ways.

I always 'knew' they were there though. Anglers have caught shark species unknown to science off the south of England and more mysteries are yet to be revealed. Giant sturgeon have been stranded far up rivers like the Stour, miles inland. Gigantic leatherback turtles have regularly been washed up on shores around the south west coasts. Giant tuna well over 500 pounds in weight are still seen off the Yorkshire coast. Even Gavin Maxwell's book "A ring of bright water" describes a creature resembling the fabled 'Loch Ness Monster' with a long neck off barely inhabited Scottish islands. I myself experienced the creature's presence while standing by the freezing cold flat calm Loch on a bright sunny morning in February 2002.

The day was calm and sunny but temperatures were cold following a hard frost that morning. Standing on the jetty by the castle in Urquahart bay I felt an unprecedented irrational fear sweep over me and I backed off the jetty fast. I walked up the grassy slope feeling foolish not having felt such a feeling ever before strong enough to move me from standing over the cold peaty red - black water.

Now as a very serious fisherman I have spent 30 years intensively spending a great proportion of this time on the banks and shores of hundreds of lakes, lochs, rivers, seas, ponds, and stretches of water, most often all night long. But I've never experienced such a unique feeling of fear before even at 'haunted' locations or in fierce lightening storms or on the darkest of nights miles from civilisation.

I know fish behaviour pretty well and felt something was very 'wrong' when just then I observed trout leaping high out of the water. This was only 200 metres away from my position over far deeper water and these fish were in such a highly excited state, darting about everywhere as if looking to escape something unseen below them. I quickly felt in my bag for my binoculars when I realised I did not need them...

I am more than scientific when it comes to the 'unknown,' requiring measurement and evidence and past records to verify anything unusual. I preferably would experience things 'first hand' before analysing and concluding anything substantial. I did not really think the mythical 'Loch Ness monster' existed except in the minds of fantasists or locals benefiting from the tourist trade in the area.

The major 2 reasons for this was that the entire loch had been under ice during the last ice age, so most likely preventing anything from remaining from previous times. Not only this, but detailed surveys show 'insufficient' fish stocks present in the loch which would appear to not be able to support a population of large animals for sustenance.

Please picture this now, because this is what I observed next: As a fish turns its flank over and rolls just under the surface of the water, it raises the water above it. I have observed this hundreds of times over the years being a big fish angler (mainly of giant catfish and big carp) of 30 years experience. The width, depth and length of the fish is indicated by the dimensions of this water movement discerned by the experienced eye. What this indicated was a massive creature.

For example an average sized large 30 pound carp may move a significant oval shaped area of water at the surface of perhaps to 3 feet. Such a fish would be about 3 feet long and between a foot and a foot and a quarter deep. The surface water movement I observed was about 15 feet long by 10 feet across... I never saw what caused it but I've fished right next to large seals, seen deer swimming in a lake, know very well the depth of sturgeon and dolphins compared to carp and whatever caused this phenomenal water movement was none of these possibilities. This was no killer whale or known cetacean either if that's what you are thinking...

There was a weird fact about my camera which is not uncommon at this loch. It has never failed me in thousands of photographs taken on thousands of bright days or dark even misty nights or on the hottest to the coldest of winter night temperatures. I am very careful to keep the battery at least new or at least 'half full.' On attempting to photograph the water anomaly, the camera failed completely despite calmly retrying. Filming under pressure of speed is not at all new to me with this camera. No photo was achieved.

Once all was calm, as if nothing had ever happened to disturb the completely calm surface of the thousands of feet deep bay without even a ripple present, I tried the camera again. This time it worked; in the 5 years since then, it has never failed either. There is definitely far more to this place than is yet known and not merely electrical anomalies. As someone has actually touched a ghost person - I therefore KNOW not merely just believe they do indeed exist, just like our 'electro-magnetic energy body' exists.)

I conceive that this Loch Ness creative could possibly be a 'ghost' or some kind of recording released by the electrical energy produced by gigantic forces caused by the faults and rocks movements present beneath the entire length of this long loch. (This does not explain sightings by police and military in waters with no faults present.) However, there are unusual lights occasionally observed in the Loch Ness area attributed to electical effects from the rocks and fault below the loch.

Whatever happened, this is my experience. This was no 'giant bubble' of gas escaping from the depths. I do not subscribe to the 'plesiosaur' theory - having seen in close detail the fossil skeletons of plesiosaurs and plesiosaur-like animals in the 'Natural History Museum' here in the UK. The chest and abdomen dimensions were not correct for the depth of water movement I saw and there was no evidence of water disturbance from flipper appendages either. I feel this creature I experienced is a different one to the popular 'mythical' version altogether.

One of the most puzzling aspects of this whole 'mythical' creature and its sightings, is that when Urquahart Castle was inhabited for generations (overlooking the very deepest water at the mouth of Urquahart Bay) this phenomenon was never reported. So what is really going in this ancient place?

Vampires Are People, Too

Vampires Are People, Too

Imprisoned for three hundred years by the Tellis vampire coven, Marinette (Nessy) is a half- vampire, half-human who survives by drinking the blood of rats or bags of infected human blood. She has sworn to never take a human life herself, so she has never been completely transformed into a vampire. She still has the feelings of a warm-blooded human, and can be more easily killed than other vampires, but she is stronger than them in some ways, having never succumbed to the blood lust that drives all other vampires to kill humans. She is unique in the history of vampires, and this makes her much sought after, because whatever coven she might add her power to would likely become the most powerful and unstoppable one of them all. But, Nessy is not interested in power, though she is highly skilled at fighting, nor is she interested in blood- letting. She really only wants what most of us want: to be loved. Can she find this love by becoming a member of the coven Charles Eaves runs, or is she doomed to an eternity of a solitary existence, pursued throughout eternity by Hervidor, and his Tellis coven?

Hervidor, who is Nessy's maker, the vampire who had been her lover, her husband, and the one who caused her transformation by biting her neck hundreds of years ago, will always be searching for Nessy and trying to get her back and force her to become a full vampire and rule alongside him. This is especially his goal, after the death of his vampire mate, Scarlet. At one time, before her wedding night, Hervidor had seemed to Nessy to be very romantic and handsome, and she couldn't help but to fall in love with him, and she felt he also fell in love with her. That may have been the case, but Hervidor failed to mention he already had a vampire mate, Scarlet, and that he, himself, was a vampire. Scarlet had been extremely jealous of Nessy, and, during Nessy's long captivity, had been one of her cruelest tormentors.

With the aid of Charles and his coven, and that of the large, cat-like Gulons, lead by Heracio (or Hera, as he's also known as in the novel), Nessy dares to hope that Hervidor won't succeed in tracking her down and forcing her to rule alongside him, as Scarlet did. Hera, and unbeknownst at the time to Charles, his niece, Melody, had been the only ones who had been able to visit Nessy in her locked room during her lengthy imprisonment. Though the Gulons are traditionally enemies of vampires, because vampires kill the very humans that the Gulons try to protect, Hera realizes that Nessy is different from all other vampires, and he befriends her. He and the other Gulons also have an arrangement with Charles Eaves and his coven to leave them alone as long as they sustain themselves with bagged human blood, and don't kill any of them.

I am not, in general, a fan of overly gooey romance novels, often categorized as "Chick Lit." However, Moon Rising is one I found I could-er-sink my teeth into (please forgive me for that lame attempt at humor). This is because the tale of Nessy and her attempts to not give in to her blood-lust by killing a human, and her not wanting to have happen to anyone else, due to her own actions, what happened to her, seemed to me to be an interesting take on the vampire novel. Also, reading about Nessy's attempts to find true love, despite the cursed situation she is in, is a reminder that there is always a glimmer of hope in even the darkest situation. Just as she about resigns herself to a loveless existence, Charles Eaves enters her life.

Charles has a lot to catch Nessy up on, also. This was another part of the novel I liked, Charles teaching Nessy about how much things have changed in the world during her imprisonment. For instance, before Hervidor had bitten her and she was imprisoned, people traveled by horse and carriage. Nessy had never seen of heard of what cars are until Charles shows her. He also teaches Nessy about how music has changed over the years, and that it is now on CDs that are played on stereos. He teaches her new dances, and what started as just his wanting to protect Nessy and get her to become a member of his coven leads into them falling in love with each other.

Jealousy exists even within his own coven, though. Alejandra, one of the members, doesn't think that someone who is half-human, and half-vampire, and who has never taken a human life, should be allowed to be a member. She wants Charles' love for herself, and feels that Nessy is an unwelcome intruder. Can Nessy experience love and happiness for once since her transformation, or will Hervidor and his coven track her down and end her chances at finding these things forever, even with Charles and his coven and Hera and the other Gulons trying to protect her? If you're a fan of supernatural romance novels, or just fine supernatural, page- turning stories in general, you're sure to be bitten by the desire to read Moon Rising by Laurie Bowler.
