Loch Ness Monster sighting and video from back in May of 2007 by Gordon Holmes may have finally been solved.
Mr. Holmes made headlines when he captured famous images of a mysterious creature from a layby on the A82 which many believed to be the elusive Nessie. The infamous cryptid has long been known as the most famous lake monster in the world and Nessie sightings and reports have been around for decades. Now the Loch Ness Monster video captured by Mr. Holmes has been analyzed with new advanced techniques by computer experts who believe they may have solved the mystery of Loch Ness.

The Nessie video showed what appeared to be long jet black creatures swimming close to the surface of the Loch for a little more the two minutes. Skeptics came forth with multiple theories to explain the possible video of Nessie including otters, seals, waves, and large fish. Now a leading expert in the field of “Application Programming Interface” or API thinks he may have finally solved the mystery. The original footage was stabilized reducing the camera shake and increase the level of clarity at the US based firm DreamFactory by chief executive Bill Appleton.

The study has concluded that the creatures captured in the video were eels measuring approximately 10-15ft in length. Mr Holmes said after several estimations he also believes the creatures in the video were eels appoximately 12 feet long. This theory of eels being responsible for sightings of the Loch Ness Monster is not exactly new as experts from the Centre for Fortean Zoology in Devon made similar claims 13 years ago. But this theory has its own problems as no eels of that size are known to inhabit the loch. The largest eels, known to date are moray eels reaching sizes of 10-12 feet in length but are not found in freshwater.
The only eels, known to call Loch Ness home are European eels which only grow to be approx 5 ft at most and are typically shorter. The often strange and ancient look of eels could very well explain some of the strange sightings and reports throughout the years, but it’s unlikely they could of been responsible for the majority of them. The scientific community will continue to consider the Loch Ness Monster as nothing more than a modern day myth as long as there is no hard evidence beyond the questionable photographs, sonar images, and eyewitness reports. Perhaps a Loch Ness Monster sighting 2016 will help to shed even more light on one of biggest cryptid mysteries to date.
