First off I remember off reading about a lake monster on the South Island; anybody know anything?
Also NZ has alot of supposedly extinct animals that were amazing like the moa; and some of them have been rediscovered like the tuataura.

Actually the Tuatara wasn't lost it was just keeping really still ...........   ph34r.gif

  The Moa are facinating though , every year they have apparent sightings in the Fiordlands . Usually it's one of 2 publicans in the area that spot it however .

A really interesting fact about the MOA.. .
Up untill only about a month ago it was believed that there where two different types of Moa a big one and a really big one . Apparently though they arn't two different species but two diferent sexes . The Female Moa was roughly 3 times the size of a male Moa and easilly mistaken as a completely diferent make  .

I haven't seen any sea monsters though sorry  thumbsup.gif
