Find out why one New Zealand researcher says the Loch Ness monster is a giant eel.

After months and months of speculation surrounding an investigation as to whether the Loch Ness monster was real, and the researcher behind it says it could be a giant eel, and it is not a huge plesiosaur, a long-lost period of time.

Speaking at a press conference early Thursday morning, a New Zealand researcher, Neil Gemmell, gave his “plausible” explanation for a lot of people may have seen in the past, but it’s certainly not the first place.

“No, We can’t find any evidence of an animal that is remotely related to our environmental DNA sequence data,” Gemmell said, according to the BBC. “Well, I’m sorry, I don’t think that the plesiosaur idea to hold of on the basis of the information that we have received.”

LOCH NESS MONSTER THEORY IS ‘PLAUSIBLE,’ A SCIENTIST CLAIMS TO BE

“There’s a significant amount of the eel’s DNA,” Gemmell, a specialist from New Zealand’s University of Otago, has been added. “Eels are very plentiful in Loch Ness, with the eel’s DNA and that found at virtually every location sampled, there are a lot of them. As such, they can be a giant eel? Well, our data don’t reveal their size, but the sheer volume of material that tells us that we can’t discount the possibility that there may be giant eels in the Loch Ness.”

He went on to say, “that’s Why we can’t discount the possibility that a lot of people will see it and believe it, the Loch Ness monster could be a giant eel.”

The european eel can grow up to 5 feet, according to the USGS. They have a diet consisting of insect larvae, mollusks, worms and crustaceans. They will be able to survive in the vicinity of the freezing point,” and is to be regarded as a remarkably mobile,” capable of moving over the dams, barrages, and even in the country, adding credence to the Gemmell experience.

Gemmell, who for the first time, as announced at the study in May of 2018, it said last month that the theory was “plausible,” in an attempt to capture the legendary Nessie.

In addition, the ideas of that species, or the Greenland shark live in the loch to be put to rest after, Gemmell said, is not the DNA of both the creature had been found among the 250 in the water samples taken from different depths.

THE MONSTER OF LOCH NESS IS SCOTLAND’S, THE PLAN, AS THE LEGENDARY BEAST WILL BE CAUGHT

Gemmell, research was set up in order to find out what kinds of plants and animals living in the loch, and was not specifically in search of the mythical creature, but that Gemmell confessed to his work and did it add to the legend.

“People love a mystery, and we have to use science to add to a different section of Loch Ness, “mysticism,” he said, according to the BBC.

One of Scotland’s oldest myths, the story of a creature living in Loch Ness, dates back to the sixth century. In the 19th and early 20th centuries, in particular, saw an increase in importance, especially after the infamous “surgeon’s photograph” in 1934.

In a study published in April suggested that the legend of the Loch Ness monster, and the other has a long neck, and “sea monsters” may have been influenced by something very, very real-and more terrifying — of the dinosaurs.

The legend of the Loch Ness monster is commonly attributed to be a plesiosaur that somehow managed to survive the mass extinction event that killed off the dinosaurs.
