Loch Ness Monster may be 'ancient sea turtle'

Still Waters

A top scientist believes he has cracked the Loch Ness Monster mystery and thinks the creature is an ancient species of sea turtle.

Professor Henry Bauer’s research found that Nessie may be a type of undiscovered turtle trapped in the Loch as the waters receded at the end of the last Ice Age.

A self-confessed Nessie fanatic, US scientist Buaer also rubbished the idea that Nessie is a form of dinosaur.

Sounds even more far fetched.

It could be ancient, Shell-Less turtle.

Seals and bunch of seals but sometimes logs and foremost, seals but pehaps some waves for fluke ones.

Oh, FFS...freshwater eel is the most likely, according to evidence.
I get it; the area around Loch Ness wants tourist $$$, but people really need to take the whole Nessie thing with a grain of (scientific) salt.

My idea for Loch Ness "Monster" would be ancient astronomy:

From 228 million years ago ? I find the turtle idea the worst yet.

I agree. Something that breathes air and doesn't look like nessy would be the stupidest random out-the-ass idea i have heard yet. Obviously people would have seen them surface or sun more. I don't get why people consider it logical to pull these kind of ideas out of thin air but deny the more likely presumed-extinct candidates for fear of unrealisticness.

Yes I make up words when I need them but Im sure it made more sense than turtles. :rolleyes:

As long as you get your point across, lol. This idea is coming from a "top scientist"  hence my lack of faith in these bozos, lol.

The videos show nothing. There is no creature. The ancient turtle theory is laughable at best.

Is there anything for which your idea is not that and which does not require a random chart?

Nope. To me it explains sliced bread. Either you see the similarities, or you do not. 

The two circles as the polar axis moves each year. The Draco constellation as a Lochness like figure. At least from the Picts I can see why they would carve this into stone. Picts have been connected to the Lochness story says google.

Tada there is my interpretation. It is as good an explanation as any, just sharing my pov.

The "top scientist" is an 80 year old retired chemist who's a Nessie fanatic.

No evidence that he knows about biology or population dynamics or paleontology.

You wonder who labelled him a top scientist. Probably never seen a rabbit in it's natural environment, lol.

If it was turtles, then wouldn't there need to be dozens of them? Wouldn't the shells wash up from time to time?

I still think logs, plus wind, plus wakes.

Coelacanths aren't 60+ feet long and don't breathe air like a Basilosaurus. There is no chance that Nessie is a surviving basilosaur or plesiosaur.
