Russian scientists say they discover jaws and skeleton of ‘Siberian Loch Ness monster’ deep down remote lake’s waters

A Russian scientist has made the first deep plunge in the waters of Yakutia’s Lake Labynkyr which claims to be home to a ‘Siberian Loch Ness monster’. The fact has a real chance to be registered in the Guinness Book of Records, a statement of the Russian Geografical Society (RGO) has said.

Head of the RGO underwater research team Dmitry Shiller went down to the bottom of one of the world’s coldest lakes located in the remote Yakutia region of Russia’s Siberia. This was the first time a man plunged to the depths of the lake.

In winter the air temperature here drops down to minus 89 degree Celsius.

According to members of the team, the expedition’s aim was to take video footage of the lakes’ bottom and collect samples of water, flora and fauna.

Moreover, according to the scientists, with the help of an underwater scanner they discovered jaws and skeletal remains of a large animal.

Lake Labynkyr is known for its geographical characteristics, the depth of its cracks reaches 80 meters. Evenk and Yakut people, Yakutia natives, claim an underwater creature, a “Siberian Loch Ness monster”, lurks in there.

    What a brilliant press release! It leaves you with the impression that the guy found the bones of a monster while diving to the bottom of the 80 metre deep lake in the middle of winter.

    In fact, it doesn’t say any of those things 🙂

    hmmm…. sounds interesting…

    “remains discovered”…I had a vision of this monster going back into hiding, or scientists being amazed that it had not done so. Of course, it’s been done, but I’ve never before seen a headline that announced it.

  4. Hapa responds:

    Wait, why is this not bigger news? Why is this not on NBC nightly or Fox Website? Are they doing more research before they call a large press conference? This is explosive news, the discovery of a Russian Nessie Cryptid! This should be big time.

  5. dconstrukt responds:

    @Hapa – sounds like a really cool story right? I was like whoa… this sounds really cool…

    but did you see the “photo” they use that claims the creature is real?

    I mean, no one with an IQ over 25 is going to think its a sea monster.

    if you’re going to make an outrageous claim, you gotta back it up with solid proof, otherwise people think you’re a clown… and no one cares.

    this to me, is the case here.
