Almost as intriguing as this "Nesski" is the fact it's lake never freezes over, although in the coldest region in the world.

I'd say that the whole "not freezing over" might be connected to some sort of geothermal activity.

Wow interesting, if this is legit it would be awesome if they uncovered some new species. I wonder what became of that corpse in the story at the end of the article though.

The picture looks like a person standing chest high in the water.

At the heart of science is an essential balance between two seemingly contradictory attitudes--an openness to new ideas, no matter how bizarre or counterintuitive they may be, and the most ruthless skeptical scrutiny of all ideas, old and new.
This is how deep truths are winnowed from deep nonsense. -- Carl Sagan

Damnation people! That's me skinny-dipping. Is there no end to people mistaking me for some sort of fricking creature?

That's it, I'm staying home from now on.

Fascinating
I does seem odd,that its the only lake in the region,that doesn't freeze over.
Siberia is one of the three coldest places on earth .

Miss me?

Most  lake monsters in the Northern hemisphere are probably either sturgeons or more rarely giant salamanders. In this case, it has to be a fish like the Kaluga sturgeon :

"It was a dark creature, with a mouth looking like bird's beak." This makes me think so.

Geothermal activity or mineral deposits can keep water from freezing.  Thats why salt water freezes at a lower temperature than fresh water.  The salt lowers its freezing point.  Other minerals do this too.  High concentrations of minerals might also explain why there is no native plant life in the lake.    Its kind of too bad that there isn't more factual information in this article.  It is also interesting to me that the ONLY references on the internet having anything to do with this lake all basically talk about this lake monster or UFOlogy.  Not that there is anything wrong with that, but do a wiki search on any other lake or even landmark and there will be at least some cursory information regarding its history or in the case of something like this - you would think that somebody would have conducted a water analysis to figure out why it doesn't freeze over or why plants don't grow in it.

Just wierd.

Do sturgeon's attack people?

Is it bad that I found the "Elephant Who Thinks It's a Giraffe" headline more intriguing?

Well I wondered if it was similiar to Salt Lake in some way,but you think they would have stipulated this.
If research teams do go,you would think they would have tested the water.
Maybe they found nothing unusual ...?

I wonder if the same research team that went after the Russian Bigfoot ( remember, evidence released soon ? ) is the one that will go to this lake.....

I don't think so...seems to be a woman ,who is just interested in this particular issue ?
The article doesn't mention her researching anything else previously .
