'Monster' remains found in Siberian lake

Divers exploring Lake Labynkyr have allegedly discovered mysterious skeletal remains in its depths.

The lake has long been associated with stories of a 'Devil' that has been reported as far back as the 19th century, a legend which parallels Scotland's Loch Ness Monster. In a record-breaking diving expedition, the Russian Georgraphical Society Underwater Research Team had been investigating the depths of the freezing lake, recording footage of the bottom and taking samples of the lake's flora, when they came across something rather unusual.

Details are scarce, however according to reports the team are said to have located some mysterious bones using a special underwater scanner. "There have been all sort of hypothesises about what kind of creature it could be: a giant pike, a relic reptile or an amphibia," said Geologist Viktor Tverdokhlebov on the subject of the lake's mysterious inhabitant. "We didn't manage to prove or to disprove these versions... we managed to find remains of jaws and skeleton of some animal."

"A dozen divers braved legends of monsters and the coldest winter temperatures in a venture that is likely to go into the Guinness World Book of Records."

LOL, fair enough. Besides considering the source, even if pictures do turn up, I'd be suspicious to be honest.

Well Nessie does not seem to be home.......... These Russins do get some luck don't they? Downed saucers, ET contact, Yetis all over the place, cracked crop circles, remote viewing and now they have stolen Nessie. I imagine they all look pretty much like Doc Brown from Back To The Future, only with Vodka bottles in hand.

I think there is a tendency to take these reports at face value, and that real scientists are either fools or telling tall stories. These reports appear in Russian equivalent of yellow press, or for US the National Enquirer. When they appear on mainstream media these reports are used as attention grabbers at start of broadcast, but you have to wait to end of broadcast for that item to be shown. I think this is same all over. Don't be misled by Siberian Times or the disgraceful English Russia site, they are all fignyar. Every country has charlatans, and every country has real scientists who... [More]

monsters!!! monsters!!! monsters!!! it has to be some unknown creature science does not know of yet.i hope its a lockness monster or something closely related to it:)that's what i wanted it to be and would like it to be but is it well that's another subject.i always say anything is possible and more than possible.that's something science refuses to acknowledge at the moment in my opinion.science is too close minded too.but that is true too why can't we never get pictures of anything if our technology is so advanced as people say it is
