  • We are still unsure of the Loch Ness Monsters existence, therefore we don’t know about its magical powers. How ever we know it travels very fast as know one has yet been able to capture it!
  • I chose this mythical creature as the photos, conspiracies theories and historic stories have always interested me. I wonder if we’ll ever find out wither or not this creature is real…… Thanks for listening!

    1. 1. • Origins • Physical appearance • Photographs and films • Searches for the monster • Possible explanations
    2. 2. The term "monster" was reportedly applied for the first time to the creature on 2 May 1933 by Alex Campbell, the water bailiff for Loch Ness and a part-time journalist, in a report in the Inverness Courier after a reported sighting of a “monsterfish”, “sea serpent” or a “dragon”. Here is a picture of the Loch Ness Monster. Whether true or not, we do not know.
    3. 3. • Amphibious Creature • 45 foot long • Bulking body • 4 large flippers for swimming • Grey scaled body • Sharp teeth • Long neck Artistic Impression of the Loch Ness Monster
    4. 4. An Image of its home, Loch Ness Where does it live? Loch Ness, ScotlandWhy? Loch Ness provides a suitable environment. It has some deep underwater caves and plenty of aquatic animals.
    5. 5. "Surgeon's Photograph" (1934) The "Surgeon's Photograph" purported to be the first photo of a "head and neck". Dr. Wilson claimed he was looking at the loch when he saw the monster, so grabbed his camera and snapped five photos. After the film was developed, only two exposures were clear. The first photo (the more publicized one) shows what was claimed to be a small head and back. It is probably the most famous as well as controversial photo of “Nessie”.
    6. 6. On 3 August 2012, skipper George Edwards published a photograph he claims to be "The most convincing Nessie photograph ever", which he claimed to have taken on 2 November 2011. Edwards' photograph consists in a hump out of the water which, according to him, remained so for five to ten minutes. It is the latest photo of “Nessie” so far. A hump like structure rising out of the water, as seen above in the picture.
    7. 7. On 26 May 2007, Gordon Holmes, a 55-year-old lab technician, captured video of what he said was "this jet black thing, about 45 feet (14 m) long, moving fairly fast in the water." Adrian Shine, a marine biologist at the Loch Ness 2000 centre in Drumnadrochit, described the footage as among "the best footage [he has] ever seen." BBC Scotland broadcast the video on 29 May 2007. STV News' North Tonight aired the footage on 28 May 2007 and interviewed Holmes. Stills from Gordon Holmes Video
    8. 8. Sir Edward Mountain Expedition (1934) Having read the book by Gould, Edward Mountain decided to finance a proper watch. Twenty men with binoculars and cameras positioned themselves around the Loch from 9 am to 6 pm, for five weeks starting 13 July 1934. They took 21 photographs, though none was considered conclusive. Captain James Fraser was employed as a supervisor, and remained by the Loch afterwards, taking cine film (which is now lost) on 15 September 1934. When viewed by zoologists and professors of natural history it was concluded that it showed a seal, possibly a grey seal.
    9. 9. In 1969 Andrew Carroll, field researcher for the New York Aquarium in New York City, proposed a mobile sonar scan operation at Loch Ness. The project was funded by the Griffis foundation. This was the tail-end of the LNPIB's 1969 effort involving submersibles with biopsy harpoons. The trawling scan, in Carroll's research launch Rangitea, took place in October. One sweep of the loch made contact with a strong, animate echo for nearly three minutes just north of Foyers. The identity of the contact remains a mystery. Later analysis determined that the intensity of the returning echo was twice as great as that expected from a 10-foot pilot whale.
    10. 10. Eels A giant eel was one of the first suggestions made. Eels are found in Loch Ness, and an unusually large eel would fit many sightings. Eels are not known to protrude swanlike from the water and thus would not account for the head and neck sightings. Dinsdale dismissed the proposal because eels move in a side-to-side undulation.
    11. 11. In a 1979 article, California biologist Dennis Power and geographer Donald Johnson claimed that the Surgeon's Photograph was in fact the top of the head, extended trunk and flared nostrils of a swimming elephant, probably photographed elsewhere and claimed to be from Loch Ness. In 2006, paleontologist and artist Neil Clark similarly suggested that travelling circuses might have allowed elephants to refresh themselves in the loch and that the trunk could therefore be the head and neck, with the elephant's head and back providing the humps. In support of this he provided a painting
    12. 12. CONCLUSION The Loch Ness monster is still one of the must arguable cryptid. Popular interest and belief in the animal has varied since it was brought to the world's attention in 1933. Evidence of its existence is anecdotal, with minimal and much-disputed photographic material and sonar readings. Yet people still believe in this creature and it still remains the most famous and widely known example of crypto zoology.
