Britain - Home to Pleisosaurs?

As many of you may know, England and Scotland both belong to Great Britain. Therefore, the English Channel and Loch Ness Lake are obviously close to eachother.

I've been browsing several cryptozoology sites and came across this:

www.bahnhof.se...

Scroll down until you find a picture of a black figure in the water. It may look fake at first, but the cryptozoology researchers at that site believe it to be real. Now examine the picture(s) closely. It resembles that of a pleisosaur but more importantly, it resembles the eyewitness accounts of Nessie (two humps, long neck, small head, amphibious, etc.). Keep in mind, this creature was photographed and sighted around the English Channel.

Now, my theory is that Britain is just a home for several Nessies/Pleisosaurs. Afterall, Loch Ness Lake and the English Channel are not too far apart and sightings of creatures lurking in the area(s) are identical. What does everyone else think?

Your theory?

How did these plesiosaurs survive the several ice ages? If they've managed to survive for the past 65 million years, then why aren't their fossils found ever in strata that date within that time period? Why so few sightings for an extremely large population of extremely large animals all across britain? Interestingly there was recently a plesiosaur fossil found at loch ness

news.nationalgeographic.com...

Richard Forrest, a plesiosaurus expert at the New Walk Museum in Leicester, England, said: "The fossil's general appearance, and the presence of holes made by burrowing sponges, shows it has spent some time in the sea, probably [with] beach pebble[s]. Yet Loch Ness contains freshwater."

Also its apparently in a type of stone that isn't associated with loch ness.

Yes, and judging by the literary sophistication of the article, I imagine these scientists have at least a third grade education, possibly some fourth. So we can believe them.

Most of that stuff is complete fabrication. The photo is OBVIOUSLY fake.

The picture may be fake, but its not the first time ive heard that nessie might be a plesiosaur, I think i was told it at school.

Ive seen many drawings of plesiosaurs, but never seen one with two humps. I dont think Nessie is a plesiosaur. And whats more, in the case plesiosaurs survived the massive dino extinction, in this last 65 millions years, they surely must have evolved into something else, maybe smaller.

In my opinion Nessie is more like a big lake snake or eel. I still believe theres something unknown down there.

If there is a creature in the bottom of that Loch then it has perfected the art of being invisible to radar

If it may have evolved into something smaller, it may have evolved to have two humps....

The image dates back to 1976. Photoshop wasn't invented back then.

You mean sonar? Radar only detects air.

I like to believe that it is a pleisosaur, but whatever it is it sure seems to love to roam around Britain.

Maybe yes, but it wouldnt be a plesiosaur anymore...

lol of course not. maybe a bihumpasaurus or something......

And if it does exist, i wonder if loch ness is the only place. I would be surprised if a creature could survive all these years but in only one place.

But then the money spider is native to the small town of beaulieu, south uk, so it could be.....
