Re: Loch Ness
email from Scotland - Home of Nessie.
Sorry if I am a bit behind the times here, but I have had a terrible
cold and also had a baby girl since New Year.
Loch Ness is actually along the line of a very ancient fault line and
could have been a valley at the time of the plesiosaurs. However, it
would have been a rather dry valley high up in a mountain range for a
good bit of the time. Since then, yes, the ice has gouged the valley
deep and no self respecting extinct animal would fight that and
The likely beast is a sturgeon which can grow (if I am correct) to
lengths of over 100ft in some Russian rivers. Any biologists'
