Ancient reptiles found

I just found this article stating that the full remains of a short necked plesiosaur have been found. It goes on to say that several other types of marine reptiles were found including one that lookes like darwings of Nessie. Could this be proof that something is actually in the Loche?

The article you posted also states that the remains are 150,000,000 years old.

The reason why this is news is that this is a complete set of remains, not a partial set. And they're partially fossilized, which attests to its great age and means that the bones are being incorporated into the bedrock in which it was found.

I don't see how finding a complete corpse of a 150,000,000 dinosaur proves the modern existence of the Loch Ness Monster. If this was found washed up on the beach, or if it had attacked some fishing boat in Oslo, that'd be a different story.

You're fast, I was just going to post this.

Called the 'T-Rex' of the seas, capable of swallowing a human whole.

Amazing they find one complete!

Reality Hurts is right, its an paleontological find of fossilized remains, not a fleshy corpse.

I read it quickly at first and thought that they were talking about actual recent remains. Often people find rotted basking shark corpses and think that they are plesiosaurs. I figured that was what this was.

Its not.

Its a paleontological find of fossilized remains.

the earliest rendering or depiction of a 'creature' in the Loch Ness area
can be found at
((but go ahead & read the whole's interesting!))

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
