Tom Pickles (no relation to the Rugrat), a 24 year old man from Shropshire, England, has photographed what he believes to be the fabled Loch Ness monster. While kayaking in Lake Windermere, Pickles spotted the creature nearby and snapped a photo with his cell phone.

The man claims the creature was nearly the length of 3 cars, and lurked around the surface of the water for nearly 20 seconds. Of the creature, Pickles claims the skin resembled that of a seal’s, each hump rippling above the water as it darted past at 10 mph.

The image taken on his cell phone is the 8th sighting of the creature— known by locals as “Bownessie”— and his description perfectly matches that of one given back in 2006 about Loch Ness sighted by the shores of Wray Castle.

What do you think, is this the real Loch Ness deal??

    Probably a log. Come on, surely someone can get a better photo than this–or better yet, a video–IF the creature actually exists.

    I have never seen a log leave a wake!
