Researchers have recently revealed that they have the "first ever video" of the sea serpent from a thermal imaging drone.

The footage was taken by production company Dragonfly Films and shows a large animal on the banks of the body of water named Loch Ness in Scotland, which some believe is the famed monster nicknamed "Nessie."

The project's producer Tim Whittard says the company detected the creature using sensing drone technology.

A massive hunt for the Loch Ness Monster took place in August.

"These thermal drones allowed us to see the loch in infrared. With this equipment we were able to see immediately if any animal breaks the water’s surface," Whittard said. "This thermal imaging technology has been available for several years now, and it seems remarkable that no one has yet deployed such equipment in an effort to investigate this mystery."

''It did detect an unusual heat signature on one of the thermal imaging drones - a large mass near the shore.''

The alleged detection of the sea serpent comes not long after some of the hunters reported detecting "four distinctive noises" under the water during a massive hunt, which took place August 26-27.

The latest Loch Ness Monster news comes as several sightings have taken place this year.

In July, reported that Nessie hunter Eoin O'Faodhagain claims he spotted a mysterious underwater shape in Loch Ness that he suspects was the famed Monster. O'Faodhagain was initially frightened by seeing the so-called monster, but he later was thrilled to have had such an interesting sighting.

"My heart was pounding because I knew I was on to something here. And when the creature resurfaced and moved parallel to the boat, what a picture that was," O'Faodhagain said.

In June, a pharmacist from Lyon, France, Etienne Camel claimed to have seen Nessie in Loch Ness as well. “I am a man of science, so I never believed that the Loch Ness monster is a prehistoric animal,” Camel told Britain’s Telegraph as quoted by the Daily Star. But he says he and his wife “saw the shadow move.”

In February, tourists in England claimed to have seen Nessie in waters off Clevedon. "[We] were sitting on one of the benches before the pier," Anna Purse told SomersetLive. "The shape was right next to the pier, and I noticed it moving."

In fact, there was even an alleged sighting in the United States.

In January, personnel at a bait and tackle shop in North Carolina saw something strange in the water. "Something you don’t see every day…. WHALES or the LOCK NESS MONSTER in the Port this morning, never seen one inside the inlet like this!" a video posted to Facebook by Capt. Friffiee of Chasin Tails Outdoors Bait & Tackle was captioned.
