Loch Ness MonsterPeople talked of the Loch Ness Monster for centuries as a myth or legend, but in 1934 Dr. Robert Kenneth Wilson, a London physician, allegedly photographed a plesiosaur like creature with a long neck and small head above the water of Loch Ness, a lake in Scotland. The locals don t mind the notoriety of their communityNessie is certainly a fabrication and a hoax. Dr. Wilson could have easily produced his film in the absence of any monster. Perhaps the neck is simply the trunk of a tree that had fallen into the water and was drifting in the lake. A tree with the stump attached will commonly float vertically in the water because the stump and roots have a higher density and sink first. The roots could have easily had rocks trapped among them so that the tree floated in a vertical position. The entire hoax could have easily been fabricated in the same manner, including the carving of the head.
