People say a monster lives in the deep Loch Ness in the Scottish Highlands. It is called the Loch Ness Monster, or "Nessie" for short. It looks like a dinosaur. It has a small head, a long neck and humps. People first spotted it in 1933. There have been many sightings and some photographs. Scientists will now use a special technique to see if there is such a monster. A research team will use a technique called eDNA sampling to try and find some of Nessie's DNA. A professor says this will show if the monster is real or not.
Many scientists have tried to find the monster before. They have even sent equipment to the bottom of the loch, which is 230 metres deep. Nessie is often in the newspapers, however, all of the photographs of Nessie are blurred. Some people say they are car tyres floating in the water. The professor will test water from the loch. He wants to find DNA from the monster's skin, urine and other things. He will check all DNA found and make sure it is not from other animals. If he finds DNA scientists don't know about, that could belong to Nessie.
