    A scientist who collected DNA from Scotlandís Loch Ness suggests the lakeís fabled monster might be a giant eel.

    Neil Gemmell from the University of Otago in New Zealand says the project found a surprisingly high amount of eel DNA in the water. He cautioned that itís not clear whether that indicates a gigantic eel or just a lot of little ones.

    But he said at a news conference in Scotland on Thursday that the idea of agiant eel is at least plausible.

    The DNA project found no evidence to support the notion that the monster is a long-necked ancient reptile called a plesiosaur.

    Loch Ness is the largest and second deepest freshwater body in the British Isles.

    But she's a dinosaur!

    I'm a skeptic about Nessie's existence.

    I'm a skeptic about Nessie being an eel. Haters can only hate.

    and he will sustain you;
    he will never permit

    Good info to add to the research-file, I guess.

    The only biophysical facts are that Nessie's ancestors would've followed their food-source... and they would've evolved.

    So Nessie eats Scottish people?

    No, she drinks Scotch - straight, no ice.

    Not after the Discovery Channel polarized the Dimsdale Film ( 1961).

    Everything was reversed ( what was dark, became light, what was light became dark ).

    In the film you can see the hump of the animal as it travels through the water, the RAF studied the film and said it was a living creature moving through the water.
    Loch Ness has very dark waters, its very, very difficult to see what is below the surface. Once the film was polarized the film, you saw what was underneath.

    A Plesiosaur.

    If that wasn't proof enough, let us not forget the photo taken by the Academy Of Applied Science back in 1972; a photo of a flipper taken over 50' down, it was 8' long and 5' wide.

    Loch Ness isn't the only lake to have reports of these animals. Lake Champlain has its monster as well that has been photographed and video taped.

    There are reports of dinosaurs in Africa ( The Congo ) flying dinosaurs in Texas and the South West ( sometimes called Thunderbirds), even a T-Rex being reported in the Yukon twice in 1907.

    Guys, I've come face to face with Cryptids more then once, these things are out there.

    And Ness ain't no fucking eel.

    I was told about Champ decades ago, camping around Lake Champlain. 'His' image was on advertising-signs everywhere, even in '61-ish.
