Oakness Monster
Is There A Monster In Lake Merrit? Scientist Says Yes

Published: 9:28 AM - 06-24-11

Few know what lurks the depths of the murky, brackish, crustacean-filled Lake Merritt. Few know what beastly beast, what cryptid, what leviathan, what man-eating monster could be swimming below, slithering through those fetid waters.

Few know? but many have seen.

Freshwater Octopus
Have You Seen The Oklahoma Octopus?

Published:9:51 AM - 08-03-11

It's not quite Nessie or Bigfoot but the famed, elusive Oklahoma freshwater octopus is out there! Well, not really but there are a bunch of folks who believe it might be.

We have heard the stories for years but decided this week to go and take a deeper look into the legend.

The Gray-Spray Photograph - November 12, 1933: Hugh Gray was walking back from church when he saw an 'object of considerable dimensions' making a big splash with spray on the surface of the Loch. Luckily he had his camera with him, so he began snapping pictures. Only one of the pictures showed anything. Nessie believers hailed it as the first photographic evidence of the monster.

Skeptics, however, dismissed it as a blurry mess that doesn't show anything at all. Many have suggested that it looks like a distorted image of a dog (perhaps Mr. Gray's own) carrying a stick in its mouth as it swims through the water.

Loch Ness - April 19, 1934 - This photo was the most famous of them all, and was reputedly taken by a surgeon who was a pillar of the establishment, Colonel Robert Wilson. Christain Spurling later admitted that he had taken part in a hoax. He made the confession on his death bed in 1993 when he was aged 90. His story was that he had helped make a model out of a toy submarine and photographed the model.

Spurling claimed that his stepbrother, Ian Wetherell, and Ian's father, Marmaduke ("Duke") Wetherell, had been hired by the Daily Mail to find Nessie. They made their "monster" out of a 14 inch toy submarine and plastic wood. The photo was taken so seriously that they dared not own up to the hoax at the time. You can take you pick as to whether this confession is proof that the photo is a fake or not.

It is impossible to search for people who have seen or have taken a picture of the Loch Ness but they are out there and the few people that have seen this scary creature are surely convinced that he is real and these pictures are real. It is almost impossible to find a person who admits to their scam, most of the people just let it grow and build into a myth.

The Stuart Photograph - July 14, 1951: Forestry Commission employee Lachlan Stuart took a picture of mysterious humps rising from the loch. Over twenty years later researchers visited the spot where he had taken the picture and realized the humps would have been in extremely shallow water close to the shore, meaning that Stuart?s monster must have been awfully flat. Confirming their suspicions, author Richard Frere later revealed that Stuart had confessed to him the humps were nothing more than bales of hay covered with tarpaulins.

The MacNab Photograph - July 29, 1955: Bank manager Peter MacNab snapped a photo of something large moving through the water of the loch near Urquhart Castle. But when researcher Roy Mackal studied the photo, he discovered differences between the negative of the image and the print that MacNab had originally shown to the media.
Specifically, there was more of the image in the print than there was in the negative (the tree at the bottom left is missing from the negative). This led him to conclude that the ?negative? had been created by re-photographing a print. In other words, it was clear that the image had been doctored. One of the most noticeable photographs of the lake monster.

Loch Ness - In 1960, aeronautical engineer Tim Dinsdale filmed a hump crossing the water in a powerful wake unlike that of a boat . JARIC declared that the object was "probably animate". Others were sceptical, saying that the "hump" cannot be ruled out as being a boat and claimed that when the contrast is turned up too high a man can be clearly seen in a boat.

In 1993 Discovery Communications made a documentary called Loch Ness Discovered that featured a digital enhancement of the Dinsdale film. A computer expert who enhanced the film noticed a shadow in the negative which was not very obvious in the positive. By enhancing and overlaying frames, he found what appeared to be the rear body, the rear flippers, and 1-2 additional humps of a plesiosaur-like body.
He said that: "Before I saw the film, I thought the Loch Ness Monster was a load of rubbish. Having done the enhancement, I'm not so sure".

Frank Searle - early 1970s - Frank Searle, a former army captain, arrived in Loch Ness to search for the monster during the early 1970s and soon established a reputation as a definite character. He was like a colonial-style adventurer, assisted by a succession of attractive young ?monster huntresses.? He took an enormous number of photos of Nessie, many of which were published by the media, but all of which have been dismissed by experts as fakes. His early photos, such as the one to the left (taken in October 1972) have been identified as pictures of floating tree trunks by skeptics, but this cannot be proven. Searle left the loch in 1985 and died in 2005.

Loch Ness - This underwater photo, taken in 1972 during the Rines expedition, seems to show a plesiosaur-like creature.

August 7, 1972: An expedition to find Nessie led by Dr. Robert Rines of the Academy of Applied Science struck gold when its underwater camera took a picture of what appeared to be the flipper of a large aquatic animal resembling a plesiosaur. However, the relatively clear image of a flipper shown to the public was not quite what the camera had initially recorded. The initial image was far less distinct. (It basically looked like a shot of a bunch of bubbles or sediment in the water.) This initial picture was then computer enhanced by the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratories in Pasadena, and apparently the computer-enhanced image was further artistically enhanced by the Academy of Applied Science team (i.e. it was retouched), thereby producing the final flipper photo.

The Loch Ness Muppet - May 21, 1977: Anthony 'Doc' Shiels claimed that he took this picture while camping beside Urquhart Castle. Its startling clarity (it's probably the clearest picture of Nessie ever taken) has made it popular with the public. But it's hard to find any expert willing to take it seriously, simply because the creature depicted in it looks so obviously fake. (And it's odd that there are no ripples in the water around the neck.)
Skeptics refer to Shiels' monster as The Loch Ness Muppet. The fact that Shiels was a showman, wizard, and psychic entertainer who was developing a side business as a professional monster hunter didn't help his credibility. Shiels himself commented that while he definitely took photos of lake monsters, he didn't believe in them. Photo is most likely a fake.

Loch Ness - A 55 year old English lab technician claims to have captured the most compelling evidence for the existence of the fabled Loch Ness Monster in history. ?I couldn?t believe my eyes when I saw this jet black thing, about 45-feet (15 meters) long, moving fairly fast in the water?, said Gordon Holmes who captured a few seconds [?]

In 1977, Sandra Mansi photographed Champ while she was having a picnic with friends. This is the best known photograph of Champ... it was published by Time and various other magazines. Champ has been featured on NBC TV's Unsolved Mysteries and Fox Network's Sightings, as well as on Japanese television and The Today Show. It has been the subject of books and hundreds of newspaper articles.

Lake Champlain - ABC News obtained exclusive video of something just under the surface of the lake that some say may be Champ. The video was taken by two fishermen with their digital camera last summer. Before their supposed sighting, they were Champ skeptics.

"It was as big around as my thigh," said fisherman Peter Bodette. "I'm 100 percent sure of what we saw. I'm not 100 percent sure of what it was."

Lake Champlain - Photograph Two of Bodette and Affolter video. "It made my hair stand on end at the time," said fisherman Dick Affolter. "It just didn't fit anything -- any creature I had seen."

Affolter said they never saw the entire body.

"What we saw always stayed at the surface and parts of it would come above the water, like the back of the nose or the head," he said.

Lake Okanagan - Ogopogo - In 1968, Arthur Folden captured film footage of the supposed creature with his 8mm movie camera. Although extremely hazy? the single minute of footage appears to have recorded an aquatic animal between 50 and 70 feet in length, quickly diving and surfacing and leaving a wake behind it.
Some observers claim to see a head, a tail and a three-humped back, but these features are indefinite. Fearing public ridicule, Folden kept the film private until 1970, when he turned it over to the local mayor. The subsequent public screening sparked an immediate sensation, with the film being largely discredited. However, Folden's film gained new found acclaim when he appeared, along with his film on an episode of Unsolved Mysteries.

Lake Okanagan - Ogopogo-This photograph is actually a frame grabbed from movie film taken in 1976 by Edward Fletcher of Vancouver. On that day he chased the creature up and down the lake for several hours taking pictures of it.
The film was shot from on a hill above the shore. The film was enhanced, and showed a solid "reptilian" 3D object.

1980 - Thal Film - Larry Thal, who was with a group of tourists who thought they saw a large creature in the lake, had his motion picture camera with him. Thal, who had been filming his kids, turned his camera toward the waters of the lake.
Thal stated that what he saw was a "strange sight." Researchers who studied slow motion enhancements of the film proclaim that the method of movement of the monster can be seen, and its speed also. Waves are created as the creature moves along, and at one brief point, part of the body rises from the surface of the water.

On July 18, 1989, Clem Chaplin spotted Ogopogo swimming among a group of logs not far from the shores of Okanagan. He told his one Ken about the sighting. Ken took his video camera and waited for a chance to film the legendary monster.
His patience was rewarded with an extraordinary film of Ogopogo. The creature appeared to be hairless, greenish in color, and about 15 feet long. .

Clem Chaplin - He was about 75-100 feet away from the monster as he rolled the film. In one startling moment, the monster can be seen thrashing the water with its snake-like body as it raised its head above the water. Some skeptics have proposed that the "flapping" motion can be attributed to a beaver, but proponents of the film have claimed that beavers, unlike the creature in the Chaplin film, lowers its head when flapping its body in the water.
HeChaplin also pointed out that the creature he saw was some 15 feet in length, whereas the largest known beavers only measured 4 1/2 feet in length.
