Really?  This brings up an interesting point.  Has anyone done any studies
of plesiosaur/ichthyosaur/mosasaur distribution with respect to water
temperature or at least latitude?

The answer is not at all obvious to me; after all, fish and sea turtles are
cold-blooded vertebrates that seem to survive just fine even in very cold
ocean waters.

Why do you believe Loch Ness is too cold for cold-blooded plesiosaurs?
