the 1st century AD carving in stone does not resemble anything even remotely
confused with an ancient plesiosaurs. I looks more like a circus dog with a
'plume' strapped atop its head.
the 'modern day' drawings of 'Nessie', are based on fossil skeletal remains &
depictions of the fossilized aquatic creatures & what they might have looked like.
It was only after that famous 'nessie' photograph (which was later admitted as a boat model with a rubber attachment) that the 'common wisdom'
rendered the legendary 'beast' as a plesiosaur.
Another case of Wag-the-Dog (as i see it). The Loch Ness beast wasn't drawn to look like a plesiosaur from 100AD-1933AD, and then suddenly Nessie
isn't just a elephantine creature that could walk on land if need be.
or look like that dog-ish
carving made around 100AD by the 'Picts' of northern Scotland
thanks for sparking my interest
