Loch Ness is credited by many to be the home of an unidentified species of large, yet highly elusive and rarely seen aquatic animals. Every creature on Earth is connected through evolution to every other. There is, in the end, only a limited number of possibilities as to Nessie's place on the family tree. Herein we take one view, proposing that the most parsimonious explanation for the mystery in Loch Ness is that it is home to a rare and as yet unnamed species of Giant Salamander.
It's only the most parsimonious explanation if you start from the assumption that there is a large unidentified creature in Loch Ness. If you don't assume that, then the most parsimonious explanation is that there is no large unidentified creature in Loch Ness.
I was under the impression this picture was already explained...
It's a dog swimming back to shore with a stick in its mouth.
Woof woof! I'm a nessie! I love my master, he threw this stick and now I am going to take it back to him because I love him so - hey look, a man with a camera, I bet he would love it if I thrashed about with this stick my loving master so lovingly threw. Woof woof! SQUIRREL!!!!!!
I've always had a major problem with the "dog swimming with a stick in it's mouth" based on the fact that if the little dongle bottom left is it's tail then it has an absolutely mahoosively long back! But if it's only a dog's head, and this is in the middle (big black patch the nose etc) then it perhaps looks ab it more like it. But that first picture's been doctored to bring out the contrast and suchlike hasn't it?
To me it looks more like a porpoise that's been stranded, and the tide is in around it giving the illusion that it's actually submerged. Could be a toy dolphin?
