"On Tuesday, May 31, Bill McDonald a self proclaimed paranormal researcher was a guest on The X Zone Radio Show and he claimed that two American college students who were spending part of their 2005 March Break in Scotland had hired a local guide and his boat to take them on a tour of the famed Loch Ness so they could take photos of the shore from the Loch."

Yes but the fact that it's a hoax will not stop the sale of his book(book's?) and Mr. McDonald will make some money and some of his readers will take the book as truth. I hate that!

There was no doubt it was a hoax, deciding where it came from was the question..

Perhaps it had been planted in the carcass and the boys knew where to go and what to expect...

No surprise here. Doesn't even look anything like a tooth.

possibly affecting their law careers oooooooooooo worried that telling lies might affect their law careers? perhaps they should consider politics instead. Ah the UM knew it was an antler all along, no experts required

Yeah... well I am no scientist... but look at that thing... a tooth is a tooth down through the ages. And that thing is no tooth. The base of it has flesh on it like you find at the base of a broken antler.... not to mention, it looks like no tooth I've ever seen - even on a dinosaur skeleton... Imagine that... another Nessie Hoax. I wish people would stop doing this BS... it lends even LESS credibility to the possibility of a surviving dino!

That tooth is no deer antler. Just yesterday at Unexplained Mysteries there were 2,200 guests and members viewing the site. One guest was viewing the thread about the Frilled shark. Sorry but I did not Bookmark the UM link. I have to laugh at the write up and the investigation determining this tooth is a hoax. I heard all about this on more than one night on Coast to Coast AM with George Noory, Steve Alten, and Bill MacDonald. Google or search UM for the Frilled shark to read about teeth described just like this one! That confiscated tooth will be worth a lot someday to an underpaid Loch Water... [More]

Please don't necropost. If it's been dead for five years and you have something significant to contribute, start a new topic.

Please don't necropost. If it's been dead for five years and you have something significant to contribute, start a new topic. I was not aware of any fine print including a time duration for posts. Your good word of warning, not in my dictionary, will be heeded. I found this UM "hoaxed story/so called investigation" in another website related to the paranormal. That newest contribution can be deleted letting the tooth hoax investigation stand as is.

I was not aware of any fine print including a time duration for posts. It isn't so much fine print as it is etiquette. As far as starting your own topic, simply go to the forum of your choice and click on the NEW Topic button. You will be taken to an Opening Post screen where you can place your comments and links, and invite others to give their opinions. There is nothing wrong with bringing up old topics, however, in order to keep the discussion fresh and relevant, we would rather anything more than a year old be recreated, rather than dredged up.
