Loch Ness Monster Mystery Solved? Mythical Sea Creature Just A Catfish?
There have been a large number of claims of the Loch Ness monster sightings from time to time but none have been strong enough to prove its existence. Steve Feltham has been waiting for a glimpse of Nessie for 25 years, but he is yet to find a trace of him.Advertisement
He left his job, girlfriend and the old life to live by the Loch and look out for the monster that became a sensation since a strange sighting in the Loch Ness way back. He has even made it to the Guinness Book of World Records for the ‘longest continuous vigil seeking the Loch Ness monster.’
However, in the long 25 years, Feltham has had only one possible sighting of the monster in the first year.
“I had one possible sighting in the first year but nothing major since,” he was quoted as saying by the Daily Star. “I believe there is something to be explained – after all hundreds and hundreds of people have seen something bigger than the resident fish lurking in the water. It is the world’s greatest mystery as to what it is.”
But, the monster hunter thinks it was a Wels Catfish, which can grow into massive sizes.
“My best guess is Wels Catfish but of course, that is just a guess and it doesn’t mean that is the answer,” he added. “But that ticks more boxes than dinosaurs or spaceships which are other ideas put forward and seriously considered.”
According to a report by the Daily Echo, Feltham lives in a converted mobile library van, where running water and electricity are luxuries. However, he is content with his job as a monster hunter and earns a living selling figurines of the Loch Ness monster that he has been hunting for a quarter of a century.
“The only skill I need is patience and a pair of binoculars,” he said. “As long as I keep doing that I’m content I will find out what is in the Loch eventually.”
