Sorry - change that subject!  It should be
        LOCHNESS MONSTER        

The idea that nessie is a herbivore won't h old water any more
than the idae that it is some kind of giant carnivore.  The
fish fauna of the Loch would only support one 250 kg. animal
at a time, which puts out of bounds the idea of a Plesiosaur,
or other fish-eater.  But the water of the Loch is nearly
opaque, the colour of strong tea, from peat acids, and the
pH is rather low.  The result is that there is almost no plant
life either.  The fish that are found there feed on detritus
washed in from upstream (either directly or through a vary
very short food-chain).  Even they do not have enough plant
life to feed on.  So how is a giant herbivore  going to make
