Whether or not the Loch Ness monster truly exists has baffled many since it was brought to attention. But a recent video clip showing glimpses of a creature creating ripples in the water of Lake Turgoyak in Miass, Russia has taken social media by storm.
The creature was spotted by Mikhail Nenarokov, a resident of Miass who was kayaking in the lake. The video footage showed the strange object that appeared to be a serpent-like creature snaking under the water, with glimpses of it caught on camera.
Nenarokov noticed the ripples in just one spot of the otherwise placid lake. And according to him, the whole incident occurred for 20 minutes.
“To be honest, I was a little bit afraid. I decided not to approach closer than 20 metres to it,” Nenarokov was quoted as saying by Express UK. “I captured it on video from three different sides. Honestly, that was scary.”
He said it was possible that what he saw was nothing but training divers but added that when he spoke to the only diving team in that area, they denied diving on that part of the lake.
“Visually it looked like a huge long animal – a huge snake, 10-15 meters long,” he said.
After the video went viral on the internet, Netizens named the mysterious object ‘Miassnessi’ after Nessie of the legend of Loch Ness.
In April, a group of monster-hunters discovered a 9-meter replica of the fabled Loch Ness monster, which was used in the 1970 film “The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes.” The team from the Norwegian company Kongsberg Maritime was conducting a survey to find any trace of existence of the Loch Ness monster.
It has so far been the most detailed survey into the depths of the Scottish lake, the ABC reported. The Munin drone used for the survey could map vast areas up to the depths of 457 metres.
