Are monsters real?

Monsters, as seen in TV shows and movies, are not real. They are fiction, made up, pretend. The purpose is to entertain the viewer.

Real monsters are people such as mass murderers and others who hurt other people unnecessarily.

That's your opinion...

Is the Loch Ness monster harmful?

There have been ancient stories through the centuries of long necked monsters resembling the Loch Ness monster through the world and many stories of them attacking ships. It is unclear on whether these are true. In 503 AD a Scottish monk witnessed the monster kill and eat a man. The monk shouted ( You Will go kill no more, you will go back.)

Many believe the Lochness monster to be a reminant of the dinosaurs. Known as the Pleisosuar, the creature matched the exact size and shape of the Loch Ness monster and the re-discovery of so called 'extinct' creatures alive and well has not been uncommon in recent years. The possibility of a small population existing is quite possible.

How many Lochs are there in Scotland?

Lochs

Believe it or not, there are over 31,000 lochs and 'lochans' (little lochs) in Scotland! Most of these are quite small while many were drained after the 18th century for farmland or tree plantations. Despite this, there are still plently to go around. Take a look at North Uist, Outer Hebrides on Google Earth sometime to illustrate this point. Even though the Outer Hebrides only makes up 1.3% of the UK's landmass, it contains some 15% of its freshwater surface area!

Does the Loch Ness Monster have gills?

The Loch Ness monster is believed to be a ancient dinosaur known as a Plesiosaur which lived in the late Triassic period. Studies from the skeleton have shown that the Plesiosaur would have been like a whale in that it would be a warm blooded mammal which breathed air, produced milk for it's young possibly and gave birth to live young tail first. It most likely survived by being able to take a large lungful of air and hold it for perhaps hours. Stomach contents have shown grit contained in the stomach which would have been used to counteract it's buoyancy and allow it to spend long periods of time deep in the extreme pressure of the deep ocean bottoms.

What information is available about the creature known as the Loch Ness monster?

Loch Ness Monster

The Loch Ness monster is a cryptid. It is described as a long necked lake monster with flippers and some also describe horns. Most avid scientists believe that there are many Loch Ness Monsters (a school) in Loch Ness.

There have been several investigations into the Loch Ness Monster, more commonly referred to as, Nessie.

There is no scientifically validated proof yet that Nessie exists. Scientists have been on the water, in the water and under the water with all kinds of electronics equipment and so far, have not turned up decisive evidence that Nessie exists.

However, many sightings have been reported by credible witnesses and some photos as well as sonar images have been presented. Nevertheless, the best known photograph has nothing in it to show scale or distance. If there was a reference, then proving or disproving Nessie would be easier.

The earliest sighting recorded was said to be an attack on a villager at the margin of the river Ness in 565 but that account has been credited to a wild boar attack. An ancient scroll says that a saint to be drove the demon (Nessie) away from villagers.

The latest sighting was in on September 5th, 2000

It's other name is Champ, mainly because it has been spotted in Lake Champlain which is near New York. Another was spotted in a lake in Washington state.

The creature seems to fit the description of a plesiosaur, which is generally thought to be extinct. Australian aboriginal paintings and other sightings by fishermen point to the possibility of the existence of such a creature in recent times.

Champ is a different creature on the North American continent, in Lake Champlain.

Most scientists that are confronted with the evidence consider Nessie to be a evolved form of a Plesiosaur which escaped from the ice age like many other deep sea fish Dinosaurs such as the Coelecanth (another deep sea fish).

The few sightings and location of the sightings suggest that Nessie's are not shy as many believe but instead unwelcoming of shallow water are in preference to the deeps of Lakes

Champ is also believed to be an evolved plesiosaur and has over evolution and much time become a new breed only able to live in fresh water unlike the plesiosaur which could live in both fresh and salty water.

However Nessie most likely keeps this characteristic.

The Loch Ness Monster doesn't exist as the loch only formed 10000 years ago during the ice age and would have killed the loch ness monster as it suffered extremely cold weather and that extreme temperature could not hold a giant cold blooded reptile. Also reptiles have to bask in the sun to warm their blood up quickly or they will die. Take a marine iguana for example they eat algae at the bottom of the sea on the Galapagos islands and they have to bask in the sun for hours then go to the bottom to eat the algae in the cold sea and they need to resurface back up on the rocks and then face the sun a second time to get the warmth and energy just to digest their food.

Is there photographic proof of the Loch Ness monster?

There was a famous picture of Nessie taken by a scientist.

Later, his nephew divulged the truth.

His uncle used a rock and attached a plastic figurine to the rock. He let the rock sink into the shallow water, the sun caused a shadow effect to make the photo look more life like.

I was watching discovery and there was a special on "Nessie" or "Champ" and there was video and a picture for proof.

Over the years, many photos have been taken of objects in the lake. Most can be explained away, but many can't. Only time will tell if Nessie proves to be real or just a legend. In a way, part of me hopes we never know.

No because you can use things to tweak photos and make hoaxes, so it is hard to determine a photo "proof" of anything. Others make mistakes and photograph things such as odd-shaped logs and stuff. There are hundreds of fake photos of "nessie" out there. So really, the whole thing will be really hard to determine.

Could Nessie be the last remaining dinosaur?

Technically, no. If the Loch Ness Monster does in fact exist, it is believed to be a plesiosaur. These were carnivorous aquatic reptiles. While they existed from the late Triassic period until the end of the Cretaceous period, a time when dinosaurs also existed, plesiosaurs were not dinosaurs.

What do you know about a 1974 penny with what looks like JFK stamped next to Lincoln facing him?

This is a novelty item known as a "Lincoln Facing Kennedy" penny.

Many of these were manufactured by private individuals in the 1970's as an advertising gimmick. They would take a normal penny (dates will vary) and stamp Kennedy's image into the coin. Then they would attach the coin to a card, which would have listed the "Astonishing Coincidences" between the two presidents. Ususally these cards would also have some kind of advertisement for a local business at the bottom.

A picture of one of these advertising cards is here : http://www.workingmancoins.com/ForSale/Pics/OtherLinKenCard1974.jpg

A closeup of the list of the "Astonishing Coincidences" is here : http://www.workingmancoins.com/HistoryLinKenFacts.jpg

I have sold many of these Lincoln-Kennedy pennies over the years for $1.00 apiece, and carded ones for $2.50 each.

Does the Loch Ness monster really exist?

Nobody knows yet. There have been many "Sightings" of "Nessie", but not always credible.

Technology has failed to reveal any evidence: On 11 October 1987, "Operation Deepscan", a major sonar exploration of the Loch, was undertaken by a team of 20 cruisers. High-tech sonar equipment bounced sound waves to the bottom of the lake, electronically recording any contacts. Three sonar contacts showed up as crescent shaped marks, but the results of the sonar test did not indicate there was anything unusual on the bottom of Loch Ness. Many say no, the Lockness Monster does not exist because there is no such thing as monsters besides in movies. Others say there is some evidence that it does exist, but it is anecdotal evidence. Nothing is proven about whether it does or does not exist.
