2. No bodies have ever been found. When a large aquatic creature dies, gases from decomposition often bring it to the surface. The remains of sharks, whales and giant squids are often found floating or washed up on beaches. In an area as small and confined as a lake, the body of a large lake monster would certainly be visible. Since many of these lakes are in regions that have been inhabited for centuries, the remains of lake monsters should be commonplace.

I know in Loch Ness there are caves, the creatures could live in these as a "nest". They could raise young, eat, and die in them. Most creatures tend to try to hide themselves before they die, so perhaps the bodies are in the caves? Or perhaps the other monsters, since there is not enough food for all of them at once cannabalize the bodies and the bodies are eaten and the skeleton floats to the bottum of the lake.

Just some thoughts.

I've heard a nasty rumor that the Loch Ness Monster is (was) actually an elephant from a traveling circus that a P.T. Barnum type fellow would take to the lake and let it swim around in an effort to drum up business. 

They have sonared the whole loch and found nothing and as much as I'd like to think that something like this could exist it is nearly impossible at this point.  How would it reproduce?  It would have to have a group of breeding adults and eventually they would have a polluted gene pool and would die out. 

Sorry folk, I just can't believe that they still exist

for the same reasons many animals go extinct...their rate of breeding can not keep up with the rate of their destruction?

perhaps there's an entire watersystem below the earth(there's enough artesian wells that suggest this) and such creatures can pass through by that method, that could explain why these creatures are seen around the world(two in canada, even one rumored in our own flathead lake)what people think are several dinosaurs may only be one or two that migrate through these, tunnels.  As for dying?

elephants have a graveyard, as do other animals have specific places they go to die...as for surviving freezing temperatures...in montana we have turtles and frogs that will go to the bottom of mud and allow themselves to be frozen, until it thaws out...

it's possible, just because there's no proof...that's a weak arguement, considering some of the other, beliefs on this site.  :P

there's so little known about the creature, that it's impossible to expect it to be like anything we know today.

I just saw something on the Histroy Channel where people looked at the two ways out of the Loch. They said it would be impossible for them to get out of the loch into the ocean without being noticed... :|

at least with what they've discovered...apparantly the creatures can breath air...they wouldn't be restricted to water...look at the walking catfish, they can survive days without water.

Just a little something to throw more fuel on the fire. I have to admit, this is some of the best film I've seen out of Loch Ness yet. All I can say is, something passed under the bow of this boat, and whatever it was breached the surface twice on its way through.

That was pretty good, but some guy on the comments said, and I quote.

this is a clip from the movie- incident at loch ness (I thinks that's the name of it) I saw it on HBO last month. It's a movie that's supposed to have a "documentary" feel to it.

But if it wasn't, that was simiply amazing, and no scientist could have said bull crap to that!

Wow, someone actually posted a comment worth reading on filecabi.net? Wonders never cease... :lol:

Seriously though, if that's supposed to be film footage with actual actors, they need to do a rewrite on the script. Some of the stuff being said in the background (the "What's going on?" stuff) sounded really lame.

Still, if that's actually an upcoming movie, I can see someone buying the monster prop in the future off eBay and really wreaking some havoc with real monster hunters on Loch Ness.

I'm not sure if it was a movie, but if it wasn't I'm surprised no one was like "OH SH**!!" or "wth!!!?!?!" Because if you see some of the ghost shows they sware about every minute during "contact". :P

I'd love to buy a Loch Ness Monster sub kit to get people worked up in the loch, but I have terrible aquaphobia. Still the look on the people's faces would be priceless!

I've seen a few documentaries on the Loch Ness Monster, most of the footage turned out to be faked, but perhaps it is real and we're all just too critical to believe that God wanted something to torment us like this, but that's just my opinion.
