That's a great article, AL.

Maybe Nessie is a survivor... after all, other reptilians such as the crocodile have managed to stay around for a hundred million years! According to the report, the elasmosaur fossil dates at 70 million years ago.

The scary thing is daily newspaper reports from south west Victoria say deep sea fishermen have had recent encounters with mysterious animals that sound exactly like the fossil description!

Hi Searcher
I have heard of those more recent sightings by reality TV fishermen and of the possible concealment of some interactions by those individuals ?
One thing is for certain that the ocean is such a massive place with many places for such a creature to remain undetected .
If you consider that modern oceanic travel really has only been happening for the last 2 or 300 years or so it wouldn't be to much of a shot to think that at least one of these NESSIES are still paddling around the big pond !!

There have been a surprising number of Nessie sightings over the last few years.

G'day AL,

Glad you liked the link... my thoughts too! I was surprised to read there are a dozen reported sightings so far in 2019. Considering Nessie tales date back to the sixth century, perhaps it shouldn't raise the eyebrows... :)

If Nessie does exist, there has to have been a family of plesiorsaur type animals living in the loch over the centuries. I used to think they could possibly come and go from the ocean via underground river systems. However, I do realise the flaw in that idea is there would likely be lots of other marine species doing the same thing. And that doesn't appear to be the case.

Next theory, please!

The hunt for Nessie continues by examining environmental DNA.
An international scientific team took 250 water samples last year and the results of the studies will be announced next month.
More info with this BBC article.

Here's an update on the DNA analysis story from the ABC News. Nothing of real substance, of course... but this just adds to the mystery! :D

5 minute video is worth a quick look. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-09-06/ ... s/11483998
