Ten tourists in China have reported a sighting of Kanas Lake's "water monster", they described seeing a large black creature that created waves over a meter high and left a ten-meter long wake a short distance from the boat.
Ten tourists from Guangdong and Hubei provinces were the latest to report a "water monster" sighting in Kanas Lake, Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region. "

seeing as somebody mentioned dragons, it does seem to be the case that often it is the largest or deepest body of water in a country that holds legends of water monsters So we may expect such lakes to have cold water and thus to have more oxygen dissolved in the water and thus to be able to support larger fish populations on which water monsters like seals (lake Baikal) and leopard seals (loch Ness) may subsist.

What is the way I want them to be extinct?I've never said plesiosaurs exist, I was just upholding the possibility of a new creature in Kansas Lake and the myriad others. You seemed to want to show that by finding a descendant of a family of fish you could somehow justify the living member of a completly different species, and one of it's early to mid-range members of said family. Not a viable comparison. Really? : Well, the way I see it, there is no reason there wouldn't be plesiosaurs all around the world.There are many trenches in the world's oceans, and many deep places for unknown creature...

I disagree... How would a topic get derailed when it is Chinese based and about a water dragon. Ever seen DC at work? "Dragons were supposed comets" and he starts discussing how germans and scandinavians were big alcoholic people who were infact incapable of fighting off the roman empire in germany, and puts all the glory of that to dragons. He already have a dragon thread, it's not proper to give him another now, is it? But more on topic here now. So we have a few chinese people who belives in the supernatural like we belive in.. Something we take for granted and would probally get me banned.... [More]

Yes I enjoy reading DC's posts and yes I am familiar with "Dragons were comets", I have read every post in that discussion and I have also seen 1 individual take on the many members and manage to keep keep a thread going with over 1200 posts... I still can't see any reason for the "Dragon" to be mentioned here in this discussion and I can't see any reason why that word can't be brought up now and again in another discussion, there are currently 3 Bigfoot threads on the first page here at the moment, since when did we restrict subject matter to one thread? My advice would be if you don't like c... [More]

leopard seals in loch ness? that one is new to me. please elaborate. I am sorry, that was a facetious remark. I have no argument to support a leopard seal ever been observed in loch Ness. (I do not exclude the possibility that an out of place, lost leopard seal might be seen in loch Ness a dozen years from now, or two thousand years ago - but I know of no such observation.) For what it is worth: I do not believe that Nessie exists, other than an otter or a tree trunk. I do think it probable, though, that the creatures observed in lake Kanas may be Baikal lake freshwater seals, considering that... [More]

I like your reasoning....ehhh, I can do that too!... Thanks, but no, you cannot. To be both scientific and facetious requires uncanny skill.
