    The artist rendering makes a good case.

    I thought, just before he died, the guy who took the original photograph admitted that he rigged something up, took a pic and created a monster, so to speak.

    I remember seeing a show about Nessie a few years ago and they talked about this other lake that had a “monster” in it that did turn out to be an elephant that a circus owner was embarrassed to report missing so I don’t see why Nessie couldn’t have been also. But yes a big crazy monster would be way cooler then a boring old elephant.

    That is correct. 'Nessie was a hoax. The famous picture that's been around since 1933 was a fake.

    Maybe it was a really big furry lobster.

    The guy who made the death bed "confession" was a known life long hoaxter. Supposedly he and his brother staged the photo, then had the doctor claim that he had taken it.

    The way I understand, he claims that they took the photo in some small bay. The full uncropped version of the photo, shows the other side of the lock. It couldn't have been taken where he claimed.

    The size of things can be hard to discern on water, since there's nothing for scale. Personally, I'd buy the otter theory, before I'd buy the elephant theory.

    You might already know this, but let me state it anyway.

    It's not that Nessie doesn't exist (necessarily), but that the Sturgeon's photo in particular is a hoax.

    The elephant idea is as plausible as anything I have heard. You would think people would keep watching though, and eventually the elephant would get out.

    Definitely an elephant. No possibility of a reptilian from the Triassic, Jurrasic or Cretaceous period could've survived.
    Time must take it's toll and change species.

    Oh yes, because there aren't any species that have survived that long. Hmm, sharks and some form of alligator comes to mind. I am sure there are some others.

    well it is possible that there is a lot of speices that DO NOT exsist in our textbooks, loch ness, could be one of them, don't forget they found a 50 squid a few months ago in the ocean. if they can find a 50 squid then there can be a giant long necked fish in the loch ness that no one has actually documented before. after all they discover new speices of everything everyday, why not a giant longed necked fish? assuming it's not a tail. lol it could also be just a old sunken boat lol

    What greater hoax than to make everyone beleive that something that is in fact real is fake. Reverse psychology.

    My thoughts, exactly. I forgot to mention that it's questionable as to whether or not the guy ever met the surgeon.

    I'm open to just about reasonable explanaition for Nessie, including an unknown species. There's a lot they don't know about the loch. Within the last few years or so they found fungus like growths on parts of the bottom, that are actually bacterial colonies. These have never been seen anywhere else in the world. There's no reason to believe that those are the only new species, in the loch.

    Eels and otters are known to live in the loch, and could be possible culprits for Nessie sightings, too. I really think that elephants are stretching things a bit, especially with as far back as sightings go.
