Scientist teases Loch Ness find
SAMPLES recovered by scientists in Loch Ness “might” support one theory about Nessie.
A team of boffins led by Professor Neil Gemmell of the University of Otago visited the loch last year to take samples from different depths in the world-famous waters.
He has now said the results were “surprising” but refused to be drawn on exactly what they suggest ahead of a planned announcement next month.
Theories incude to idea of the “monster” as a surviving plesiosaur, a sturgeon or a giant catfish
“Is there anything deeply mysterious? It depends what you believe,” he said.
“Is there anything startling? There are a few things that are a bit surprising.
“We’ve tested each one of the main monster hypotheses and three of them we can probably say aren’t right and one of them might be.”
