How Waves Could've Created the Loch Ness Monster

Short | 02:42

More About This episode

Is believing in the Loch Ness Monster's existence really so outlandish? Kangaroos, giant squids, and even tigers were once considered mythical creatures. And a fish thought to be extinct for 65 million years was caught off the South African coast in 1938. It's possible something foreign to us could be hiding in the Scottish lake's cold depths, but is it probable? A detailed study exposes the truth behind the phenomenon, and investigates 80 years of photographs, videos, and thousands of eyewitness accounts.
