  Chinese monster rivals Nessie
Updated 31 July 2003, 17.04
Chinese soldiers reckon they've spotted a monster
China could have a monster to rival Scotland's Nessie.

For the second time in a month, a mysterious creature has been spotted in Tianchi Lake in the country's Jilin Province.

This time, a group of soldiers reckon they saw a blackish green animal swimming about for a couple of minutes.

They said the creature had scales on its back and horns on its round, black head.

Could it be a relative of the mythical Loch Ness monster?

Other people claimed to have seen a similar animal earlier in the month.

There have been loads of "monster sightings" at the lake since the start of the last century.

The same sense of mystery surrounds Scotland's Loch Ness, where many people have claimed to have seen a weird creature.

It's become so well known that it's got a nickname - Nessie.

Never survive

A BBC team recently carried out a search of the lake and claimed there was no evidence that Nessie existed.

It seems the scientists are out to prove China's monster doesn't exist either.

They say the lake is so cold that such a big creature would never survive in it.
