Nessie related to extinct 'serpentine whales'

Recommended Posts

An American investigator of mysterious animals and legendary creatures has focused on the Loch Ness Monster in his new book and is convinced the creature is descended from an ancient group of extinct serpentine whales.

Globe-trotting cryptozoologist Ken Gerhard has written The Essential Guide To The Loch Ness Monster and Other Aquatic Cryptids, drawing on interviews with leading Nessie experts and reported encounters.

It also features a foreword by Steve Feltham who has set a world record for the longest continuous vigil of looking for Nessie, having been watching the loch for the past 30 years.

Nessie can be related to ancient turtle, whale or whatever. Nessie will be whatever you want her to be, ideal women really, lol.

For Nessie to be a whale, there'd have to be a viable breeding population of fresh water odontocetes living and breeding in the Lock. Since they're air breathing mammals they'd be hard to miss, popping up everywhere frequently to breath.

And presumably these marine anmals walked there after the ice age?  Or did the space aliens drop them off after the ice melted and the glacial hollow turned into a lake?   No way could a whale or anything similar swim up the River Ness (seals could - in theory - only because they can survive out of the water)
