This photograph was deemed by experts as an official Nessie sighting, believing it to be Nessie’s fin. It was taken by nine year old Sam Knight on November 2nd, 2017. This image of the fabled Loch Ness Monster is the eighth sighting this year. Sam is greatly interested in cryptozoological creatures and his family made the trip to Loch Ness purely to look for the monster. Sam even brought rope and a genetic testing kit in case he was able to snag the creature. He believes that Nessie is probably “a giant eel or a sturgeon”. Sam’s photograph was taken just a few weeks after a newlywed couple had the seventh sighting of the year.
