Loch Ness Monster
Scientists have taken DNA samples from Loch Ness in a bid to solve the mystery of the monster that lore says lies beneath the waves. The presence of large animals, said to be behind reports of a monster, was ruled out in the analysis. But the team from New Zealand say the creatures behind the fabled Nessie could be giant eels.
