We live in a different world today, than that ofthe fifties and sixties when the film was made. Here we hear that the famous film made then had creditable eye witnessesand was done by men dedicated to recording any such event. We actually have a class one report similarto the original Bigfoot film made so hurriedly at around the same era.
I have already posted extensively on thissubject. The existence of a class onereport in which the source is reasonably creditable merely reassures us that weare onto something.
My conjecture is that these ‘sea serpents’ or plesiosaursare returning to ancestral deep fresh water lakes in order to breed and set aclutch of eggs. These are plausibly setin burrows in decaying plant material as is typical of dawn age reptiles. The young may spend some time in the deep ofthe lake until it is needful to go down to the sea.
At sea, they operate in the deep which is severalhundred feet below the surface layers that we rely on for fishing.
I suspect that the adults need the deep watersto function properly. And that is why they appear to be associated with deepfresh water lakes.
Perhaps someday we will have a good example,though we have heard no more about the curious remnant found by Japanese fishermen.
In the meantime, controversial data is easily vetted on the internet and a community of interested folk can keep it alive and protected from fraudulent knockers.
Ness monster authenticity flares up
by Terrence Aym
A famous film of the Loch Ness Monster has resurfaced. Longdismissed as a hoax, the vintage footage of the elusive beast has suddenlygained new respectability thanks to the son of the man who originally caughtthe monster with his camera.
None other than a retired police officer, Mr. Simon Dinsdale, has come forwardto declare that the footage of the world-famous creature recorded by his fatherhalf a century ago is the real thing.
Dinsdale's father was a famous Loch Ness researcher who also happened to be ahighly respected aeronautical engineer within
The RAF engineer penned a number of popular books about Nessie. After capturingthe legendary monster on film, he had RAF photography experts analyze itframe-by-frame. The optical researchers decided that the moving image thecamera caught was not a long, submarine, boat or an optical illusion of lightrefraction, but a truly unknown thing.
Now Simon Dinsdale asserts that he knows the film his father took of the Loch Ness Monster is not only real, butthat he himself has witnessed the creature on two separate occasions.
During a recent interview with the BBC, Dinsdale shared his personal sightings."I saw this immense, extraordinary object, it looked like the back of ahuge animal.
"It stood two or three feet out of the water, four or five feet across,reddish brown and had a blotch on the left flank which I could see veryclearly.
"And then it started to move—a most electrifying moment!"
Something unknown is under the murky waters of the lake. Speculation on justwhat it—or they—could be range the gamut from giant eels, prehistoric whales,sea snakes…even a long-thought extinct plesiosaur, a dinosaur thought to havedied out more than 65 million years ago.
Reports of Nessie go back centuries. The first modern day sighting on recordwas made by a George Spicer in 1933. Spicer and his wife declared theywitnessed "a most extraordinary form of animal" that crossed the roadin front of them before it reached the loch's shoreline and slipped into thewater. They described the creature as being about 4 feet high and 25 feet long.
Photos have been taken, expeditions launched, reputations ruined.
Still, the reports of the creature persist.
Dinsdale is no crackpot. He's a matter-of-fact man steeped in the tradition ofcalm practicality that police officers around the world exhibit. He spent yearsexamining clues, forensic evidence, and was part of a police team assigned tohunt a serial killer.
"I'm experienced at looking at evidence," he told the BBCinterviewer, "and I can tell you that on the balance of probabilitiesthere is something large and unknown living in this loch."
Lake monsters are not limited to Loch
