Overview

Numerous legends say that a prehistoric plesiosaur inhabits Loch Ness, a deep, murky lake in Scotland. In Loch Ness Monster: Fact or Fiction?, follow cryptozoologists as they study the scientific evidence for and against the existence of Nessie and her relatives around the world, including Champ in Vermont's Lake Champlain and Canada's Ogopogo in British Columbia. Learn about the many realistic explanations-such as wave patterns, tree trunks, otters, water birds, and hoaxes-for the majority of eyewitness accounts that have surfaced over the years and decide for yourself whether Nessie lurks in Scotland's most famous lake.

Is Bigfoot real? How about the Loch Ness Monster? Do dinosaurs still haunt the deep, dark jungles of Africa? The science of cryptozoology tries to answer these and other questions as it searches for cryptids-awesome "hidden" animals which are known to inhabit the human mind-and maybe the real world as well! Creature Scene investigation presents and analyzes the evidence for and against the existence of some of the world's most famous cryptids.
