Speaking of Changbai Mountain, will your first reaction be Changbai Mountain water monster? Changbai Mountain has been a special sacred territory of our country since ancient times. The scenery of Tianchi Lake in Changbai Mountain is very beautiful. A large number of people come to this place every year. However, it is often said that there are water monsters in the Tianchi Lake of Changbai Mountain. What’s the matter?
In August 1980, a tourist was visiting Changbai Mountain. He got up at 4 o’clock in the morning and planned to climb to the peak to welcome the hard won sunrise. While enjoying the beautiful scenery in the sky, I suddenly found that there was a strange creature in the water far away. Its head was as big as an ox, and its head was also very big. It moved very fast. When it swam, there were layers of spray on the water.
The man was so confused that when he went down the mountain, he immediately told others about it. Even the newspaper published the event. Coincidentally, in July 2005, another person witnessed the water monster in the north of Tianchi Lake. From the description, we know that the water monster is huge, like a whale, and similar to a submarine. When its head is out of the water, it is two meters high.
A week later, one or two hundred tourists, on the west side of Tianchi Lake, witnessed the water monster again. The water monster is more than 100 meters away from the shore. It keeps jumping out of the water and diving into the lake. It seems to be playing happily. It didn’t disappear into the water until 10 minutes later.
But because of the distance, people can only vaguely see its outline. It looks like a long Buffalo, and it looks like a plesiosaur at the end of the Cretaceous period. Anyway, it must not be a fish. So what kind of creature will it be? In this regard, people put forward several conjectures
Statement 1: plesiosaurs
Because its physical features are very similar to plesiosaurs, such as long necks and so on. Since the Loch Ness water monster also has this feature, they may be of the same origin.
But plesiosaurs were extinct at the end of the Cretaceous. Even if they were not extinct, how did they adapt to the changing environment in the past tens of millions of years?
Statement 2: otter
In the eyewitness’s camera, the appearance of the water monster is similar to that of the otter, and the long neck witnessed by people is the illusion generated when they see the otter. And otters often appear in July and August.
Statement 3: mutated fish
Because Tianchi is located in the crater of Changbai Mountain, it will produce some radiation, which will pollute the fish in the water. For millions of years, long-term radiation has created today’s water monster.
However, many people think that there will be no water monster in Tianchi of Changbai Mountain. They think that Tianchi is located in the crater of Changbai Mountain, and its water temperature is very low, ranging from 0.7 ℃ to 11 ℃ all the year round. The water is not very nutritious, and even fish rarely appear. So how does such a big water monster adapt to such a difficult environment?
Later, a scientific research team came here to investigate. They also asked some local people. They said that in the 1960s, there were water monsters in Tianchi. It had a big head, a prominent mouth, a neck about 1 meter long, and a body length of at least 3 meters. The image described by local people was obviously not any of the creatures we know.
In order to solve the puzzle, the scientific research team conducted observation and exploration here, and also interviewed many witnesses. Finally, it came to the conclusion that the water monster in Tianchi is not a water monster, but a marine fish, molas.
The scientific research team speculated that there is an unknown tunnel between Tianchi Lake and the sea of Japan, through which the Mola will travel between the two waters. In the mouth of many witnesses and in the photos and videos, it shows that the water monster will jump out of the water and like to turn in circles. These features are similar to those of the Mola.
Tianchi Lake is often faced with volcanic activities, which makes the lake water rich in minerals and warmer, so Tianchi Lake is suitable for molas.
However, for the Mola is only speculation, after all, did not capture the real water monster. Perhaps only if we really capture it, can we carry out a more in-depth study and uncover its mysterious veil.
