A mysterious object that looks eerily similar to the fabled Loch Ness Monster has been spotted in a Russian lake.
Pictures from the sighting appear to show a long neck with a head on the end – just like the stereotypical image of Nessie.
There is another object just behind the “neck” – which looks like the hump that features in many Loch Ness Monster photographs.
The bizarre “beast” is white – unlike the Loch Ness Monster, which is usually pictured with darker, green skin.
Onlookers claim it is the Russian Nessie.
Passerby Dmitry Kim was on his morning run at Lake Khanto, in the city of Noyabrsk in north-central Russia, when he saw the object – and took a snap on his mobile phone.
He said: “The silhouette of this creature reminded me of the Loch Ness Monster.
“It was standing there and wasn’t moving.”
