Google Maps Street View: ‘Loch Ness Monster’ spotted hovering close to the legendary spot

2 mins read


Google Maps Street View is a great way for users to get a virtual look at parts of the world from the comfort of their own home. However, it also has the ability to uncover some rather unusual moments.

Google’s Loch Ness Monster even wears its own tartan hat in true Scottish style.

Users can then drag and drop the green Nessie to wherever they want to explore in the area.

However, as soon as they relocate to a different place away from the loch, the little monster disappears.

“If you go to Loch Ness, the Google street view guy becomes a monster,” wrote one user who posted the Easter egg to Reddit.

This isn’t the only unexpected moment Google users have spotted while using the programme, however.

In Split, Croatia, some Reddit users were shocked to see a woman with a rather alien growth.

One of the women appeared to have three legs, something that led viewers to question whether extraterrestrials really do walk among us.

Some more logical viewers have also stepped in though, pointing out the additional limb is more likely to be a photography glitch.

The Google camera works by taking multiple images and then stitching them together to create a seamless panoramic shot.

However, if anything moves during this process it can end in an untimely glitch, which in this instance meant the appearance of a three-legged woman.
