Marmaduke Wetherell bought a submarine, has attached to it a toy serpent, photographed this construction and has said that it is Loch Ness Monster Loch Ness Monster is a mystic creature whose being has been suggested but until is not ascertained or documented by the scientific community. It is supposedly the largest unknown beast that can inhabit Loch Ness in the Scottland. It is similar to other imagined lake monsters in UK or elsewhere, though monster description varies from one report to another. Interest and belief in the Loch Ness existence has changed since it was first brought to the people`s attention in 1933. Proofs of its existence are unsystematic, with minimum and much-disputed photographic data and sonar echolocation.

The most general theory among believers is that the creature seems with a line of long-surviving breed of dinosaur, or plesiosaurs. For the contemporary scientific community the Loch Ness Monster is a modern-day myth. Specialists explain sightings as including mystification, definite hoaxes and even wishful thinking.

One of the most famous hoaxes associated with the so-called " Surgeon`s photography". This blurry photo was made in April, 1934 and is known worldwide. It for 60 years it has fueled the most improbable assumptions about “cryptolizards”, living today in the Scottish lakes. Photo also created a lot of rumors and speculations. It was so while in 1994 adopted son of mystification author - Christian Sperling - have not told publicly that his stepfather, Marmaduke Wetherell, hired by the London newspaper Daily Mail to find a large animal. He failed to find it and decided to make this fake photo. "Nessie" was hastily constructed and maintained on the surface using a toy submarine and the counterweight made of the plates. In order to look more believable story, swindlers persuaded local surgeon Robert Kenneth Wilson to claim himself the author of the image.
