Runner Bean
Phaseolus coccineus, known as runner bean, scarlet runner bean, or multiflora bean, is a plant in the legume family, Fabaceae. Another common name is butter bean, which, however, can also refer to the lima bean, a different species. It is grown both as a food plant and an ornamental plant.

Who would have thunk it?

Scientific Research into Loch Ness revealed no traces of Monster DNA. No elements were found to support giant aquatic dinosaurs or reptilian life forms. The study found that the loch was home to many eels. One theory for the sightings of the fabled Loch Ness monster is that what the eyewitnesses saw were, potentially, indeed, giant eels.
