'Nesski' Reported in Russia: Talk of a

Russian version of the Loch Ness Monster is making the rounds in Russia, reports the Daily Mail, citing

the Siberian Times.

The native inhabitants around Lake Labynkyr in Siberia have long claimed that a huge

creature lives in the lake. Moscow State University's Lyudmila Emeliyanova took her own tour of the lake

and said she detected "several seriously big underwater objects" on her sonar, very alive, that she could

not attribute to a local species of fish.

Several other sightings have been reported and a fishfinder

detected a large object almost 200 feet down in the lake.

Emeliyanova believes that "where there's smoke,

there's fire," and wants to explore the lake to see if it connects through to another lake, and if there

is a large creature — around 33 feet long — that swims between them.
