The Loch Ness Monster has long been believed to be a dinosaur or mythical creature that resides in Loch Ness in Scotland. It has recently been proposed that the Loch Ness Monster is an eel-like creature and this recent footage supports this theory. The Ness District Salmon Fishery Board had been recording within the river Ness when they spotted something they believed to be peculiar.
While a fish can be seen swimming in the foreground, in the background a faint outline of a large eel-like creature can be seen quickly passing in and out of frame.
Due to the murkiness of the water, the complete shape and identity of the creature cannot be clearly seen.
However, Loch Ness Monster theorists have insisted this provides evidence the allusive creature is still alive and is, in fact, more similar to an eel in shape.
The Ness fishery board shared the video to Twitter fanning the flames of those who are convinced of the Loch Ness Monster’s existence.
The post said: “Let’s be honest.
“When you see a large, eel-shaped object passing your camera in the river Ness, the first thing you think of is the Loch Ness Monster.”
The eel theory was recently proposed by scientist from New Zealand’s University of Otago and based off of DNA analysis of hundreds of samples pulled from the Scottish lake.
University of Otago geneticist Professor Neil Gemmell announced his results earlier this month.
