What species is the Loch Ness Monster?

The Loch Ness Monster is a creature that’s said to live in the Scottish Highlands. This “monster” has been nicknamed Nessie. Many people travel far and near to try to witness this creature that has often been described as having a long neck with one or more humps that protrude from the water. The Loch Ness Monster’s species is unknown but it’s said to be rather long in size. 

Enjoy colouring the following European monsters while you dig into Atlas of Monsters and Ghosts from Lonely Planet Kids:

Headless Man

Lost in the 17th Century, this man is often seen in the ancient castle of Edinburgh in Scotland looking for his head. Among the other ghosts that have been witnessed with the Headless Man are a dog and a woman who was thought to have been a witch during her time on Earth. 

The Green Lady

Located in the Castle of Mey in Scotland, The Green Lady is sad over a tragic love story and while you might want to smile at her in hopes she smiles in return, her spirit continues to wander around sad. 


Dracula is a notorious vampire that many people know about. His location is usually Transylvania where he wanders around at night eating human blood to survive. While other vampires may have changed their ways, Dracula never does and only grows more violent with each passing year. 

The Witches of Pendle Hill

Atop Pendle Hill there’s said to be a magical presence, it’s the WItches of Pendle Hill. Having been executed in this area, it’s said they haunt the area seeking revenge for their wrongful death. 

Loch Ness Monster

The Loch Ness Monster lives in Loch Ness and is traditionally called Nessie as a nickname. This long creature is known to slither through the water, preying on boats, but has been said to slither up onto dry land from time to time.
