Name: Loch Ness Monster                                                           
The Loch Ness Monster is an alleged animal, identified neither as to family or     
species, but claimed to inhabit Scotland's Loch Ness.The Loch Ness Monster is     
one of the best-known animals studied by cryptozoology. Popular belief and         
interest in the animal have waxed and waned over the years since the animal came   
to the world's attention in 1933. Evidence of its existence is largely anecdotal, 
with minimal, and much disputed, photographic material and sonar readings: there   
has not been any physical evidence (skeletal remains, capture of a live animal,   
definitive tissue samples or spoor) uncovered as of 2008. Local people, and       
later many around the world, have affectionately referred to the animal by the     
diminutive Nessie (Scottish Gaelic: "Niseag") since the 1950s.
