Scientists decided to solve the mystery of the Loch Ness monster. To do this, they studied the DNA contained in Loch Ness.
Last year, researchers collected water samples at different depths. Then they carefully studied the DNA fragments of living things contained in the samples. As expected, traces of the presence of many animals in the reservoir were discovered. However, no one resembling a monster is among them. In particular, the genetic material of dinosaurs, sharks and catfish is missing.
But the researchers still expected a surprise - in all water samples found a huge amount of eel DNA. Since, according to the observations of local residents, these animals in the lake are not so many, the fact may be evidence of the presence of giant fish in Loch Ness. Perhaps it was she who gained the glory of the Loch Ness monster.
Unlike sea eels, river eels do not grow more than 2 meters in length, but mutations are possible in any animal
