Another supposed sighting of the elusive Loch Ness monster has had people talking after it appears the creature may have temporarily relocated to the U.S.
A clip posted to YouTube shows a long-necked, tailed creature going for a swim in North Carolina, with neighbours wondering if Nessie is indeed real and might have traded the US coasts for her usual habitat (via NPR). Watch the video for yourself below.
First sightings of the creature date back to the 1930s, when Nessie was allegedly first spotted in the Scottish Highlands. Since then, many have been trying to lay eyes on her, with some going as far as attempting to catch her -- with no luck, of course.
Regularly, sighting clips resurface on the Internet, leaving people to settle the long-standing debate as to whether the mythical Nessie could actually be real or the shaky, somewhat pixelated footage has, more probably, captured a big alligator.
Only a couple of years ago, a camper's drone spotted a strange shape moving into the water. In the clip from wild camper Richard Mavor, the mysterious figure can be seen swimming on the banks of the loch, prompting curiosity as to whether it could be the legendary creature.
"I had to rewind the footage several times and have watched it several times since. I don't know what it is but it certainly has the same shape as previous sightings of Nessie," Mavor told the Daily Record.
"The more I watch it I think 'crikey! There really wasn't anything in the area that could be,'" he continued.
"There was no driftwood or anything like that so who knows."
He continued: "We had just parked up and I thought I would get some nice shots on the beach for my YouTube.
"I didn't notice what I had picked up until others told me to watch out for it. It could be a trick of the light but we can't be sure."
That was hardly the latest sighting of Nessie. Earlier this year, the adorable monster was thought to have been spotted off the coast of Clevedon in Somerset, a seaside town known for its Victorian pier.
As the hunt for the creature continues, it is believed that the water levels falling down could push Nessie - should she exist and not just be the subject of countless, cute souvenirs tourists stock on when in Scotland - outside of her natural habitat and prone to migrate elsewhere.
