                                                      I'm on a bit of a 'sea monster' roll at the moment,  w00t.gif  here's an interesting if not highly questionable account of some divers encountering and videotaping several plesiosaurs in the Kaikoura Canyon off New Zealands southern island. A still picture is included with the link HERE   ohmy.gif   unsure.gif

* - Just curious, Kismit, is Kaikoura anywhere near where you live?

                                                      As you can see with the picture, the plesiosaur has a faint line around it as if someone has gone and masked around it and then copied it to the picture.  

The other object by it on the other hand does not have this feature.

                                                      I agree, it just looks like someone's simply pasted the image of the Plesiosaur into the picture with the diver.

Not very convincing.

                                                      Turns out it was all a hoax, the divers confessed after someone found the source they used for their fake picture.
