How does Nessie sleep at night? literally

I was just wondering & I know it must sound a bit stupid but where does nessie sleep. I'm thinking this because I've heard stories about land sightings & if so then does'nt that mean it must sleep on land (in a cave perhaps) Has anyone one seen the film Loch ness? What happens on that film could possibally show the correct sort of place that nessie lives. You have to watch it to understand but I was just wondering it must get tired swimming around all day
My 2nd question is, why dont we make a nessie day where thousands of people turn up to loch ness & create a circle around the loch & that way it will be a hell of a lot easier to catch something & then we can put our minds at rest. Sorry about this rediculous thread but I just post whatever springs to mind

Well if nesse is indeed a large eel or sturgeon which are probably two of the most likely candidates then I'd say he or them sleep at the bottom of the loch.If nessie is some sort of mammal as in a seal which is also a more likely candidate than the old plesiosaur theory then he or she probably sleeps on shore hidden someplace.

Nessie doesn't exist

So what do you believe in then Wig?

Well, it would probably sleep in its cave - Since, it has to have one to escape all the searches that has been done...

Its also much more quiet in there!

Mate, you're obviously not from Scotland.

Nessie is a close personal friend of mine and i'll tell you, no malt is safe with him around.

After a good few measures he often lets me ride on his back as we tour the loch looking for young and fun maritime life.

But all this gallavanting takes its tole.

Nessie drops me off at the eastern bank before heading back to his underground pad for night. We're both shattered after it, but it never stops us doing the same the next weekend!

As Nessie says " There's plenty of fish in the sea, but not enough in my bed!"

What a guy.

I hope this was of help.

If it's a large reptile, then it can sleep a the bottom until it needs air. Gators can hold their breath up to 12 hrs on cold days

Nessie would sleep the same way that dolphins and whales do.

The movie 'Loch Ness' had scenes in it from other lochs and even the caverns
beneath Urquhart Castle were of another place further north. I believe the
castle was also used in Highlander, anyway I digress...

If there is a beastie in the loch, it may just sleep midwater, I mean there's no
indication that it needs air from the surface, come to think of it there's no indication
that it has gills either!

I know that the river Ness is small and quite shallow in places, although there was
a sighting in the river not far from Inverness, so if it slips out to sea night, I think
it would find it difficult to take forty winks.
Down at Fort William, with all those canal locks, no chance.

The odds that there's caves on the loch sides seems very small too.
So Wig might be correct... it doesn't exist!

The loch's not small, its 26.3 miles long & almost a mile wide is what I heard. Has anyone checked around the sides yet? all the way around? Well If I go there, I'll be sure to do so. What do u think of Champ, he seems alot more common & alot harder to disregard.

any giant cryptid could NOT swim down the river ness " at will " - there are 5 wiers - and 3 bridges to negotiate - besides - the river is only really navigable to kyaks - NOT giant mosters - its about 20m wide - on average - and in places you can see the bottom

as for caves - there are NO caves - above or below water -
the lock has been extensivly surveyed - and the geology will not support any large cave structures

as for has any one checked the banks - yess - people live and work in close proximity to the lock every day - and ordanance survey maps chart every inch

i have personally run arround the loch , for a bet - there is NO where for a cryptid to run or hide

Figure out how a whale sleeps, and I figure the Loch Ness monster wouldn't be much different.

How DO whales sleep without drowning anyway? Hrmm... odd.

i know dolphins " sleep " by switching control , from one hemispere of the brain to the other - will " asleep " - thier cognotive functions , alertness and reflexes are greatly reduced - but they can react - and if needed awaken to full capacity quickly - but while " asleep " - they can navigate slugishisly - react to danger etc and of course - surface to breath " as required "

but - this assumes that the LNM is a marine mamal ???

its very existance is unproved - so IMHO opinions on how it sleeps are premature

I wouldn't go as far to say no ones ever seen anything unusual in the lake or that nothing exists but I will say if something does it isn't a "monster".All those sightings were more than likely just a large sturgeon or maybe an elephant seal or something people would not be used to and would mislabel got in the loch.

The sides of the loch are extremely steep in some places, it is probably an almost impossible task to walk around the whole lake shore, You will be needing a boat.

But if there were any caves or caverns on the shore they would be already discovered, I have not heard of any.

Perhaps it would come close to shore and sleep with it's head above water level.

ERRR... no as a matter of fact , i believe i addressed it - noting the unevidenced assumption that the LNM is an air breather

i also answered the question posed by another member who asked " how do doplhins sleep "

posted on Feb, 25 2006 @ 04:35 PM
The point of my post was not to assert that Nessie is an airbreather, but to show how ridiculous for everyone to assume that if Nessie is an airbreather, he must be leaving the water to sleep, e.g in a cave.

If Nessie is not an airbreather, then we're chasing imaginary butterflies. If Nessie is an airbreather, we can't just assume he's sleeping in caves. Hence why there is no reason to be sure that Nessie sleeps in caves.

OPPPS - note to self , read the thread instead of being smug

mea culpa , appologues

as for the caves issue - my reply is simple and blunt - what effing caves ???

i have asked before - as have several other members who are familiar with the great glen and or geology -

it has been asked every time the issue of caves is raised - on any forum - not just this one - tell us where they are - instead of hand waving " there could be caves " - so foar the silence has been deafening

and the truth of the matter is quite simple - the geology of the great glen will not support cavers of any note -

I personally think if it exists then it would be like a seal or walrus, an air breather that spends most of it's time underwater & I think if you were to set up investigations all around the loch, u may find something cause I'm guessing, where ever searchers go, nessie goes the other way. The loch's too big really for us toknow for sure & it's home to thousands of species but I'm remaining a believer on this one & I personally think it's more likely to exist than bigfoot & think it's worth visiting.
