Of science, engineering and Planet-Indeed, the researchers still seek the mystery of the legendary monster of Loch Ness to solve the problem.

According to the scientists, it remains the fact that only one “plausible” explanation for the sightings of the famous monster: Nessie, it is possible to eengigantische runoff.

The New Zealand scientists took a total of 250 water samples from the well-known lake in the Scottish highlands. Those samples were sent to laboratories in Australia, Denmark, France, germany, and New Zealand, and examined, on the basis of a genetic database. With more than 500 million DNA sequences, were examined. The plants and animals that live in the lake? Which one is not? And what does that mean for the wildest theories about the Loch Ness monster?
