Truth or myth?.... maybe the science of DNA will uncover the answer of the Loch Ness monster.
A researcher in New Zealand just tossed out that suggestion on social media and the reaction has been, let's do it.
He's a geneticist and professor who monitors marine biodiversity by checking the DNA of water samples... the organisms within. The suggestion is that maybe this "environmental DNA" testing could answer whether Scotland's Loch Ness has something unusual swimming about...or not.
The legend of the monster dates back to the 6th Century, but is still a fascination today, albeit with a fondness for "Nessie" rather than fear. Wouldn't it be something to know or does that destroy a big chunk of mystery?
