Transcript of The Loch Ness Monster

First Recorded Sighting http://www.polleverywhere.com/multiple_choice_polls/LTkzODE4NTcxNA http://www.crystalinks.com/lochnessurgeon.jpg Surgeon's Photo The surgeon's photo was a confirmed hoax, based on the deathbed confessions of Chris Spurling. Spurling said it was actually a "staged photograph of clay attached to a toy submarine." http://www.crystalinks.com/nessierhomboid.gif In the early 1970s, a group led by
American patent lawyer Robert Rines
obtained some underwater photographs.
This vague image is argued to be
either air bubbles or a fish fin. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JXAs40Igti4 http://americandigest.org/060309_loch_ness.jpg Movies have been made about the Loch Ness monster which shows how popular Nessie is. http://t0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcRiciDFixftqqOvHbaAdd2XTgMGyTTmxAs8NRVusNX-_QPXYj66&t=1 This picture makes "Nessie" look as if it is an elephant's trunk. "The reason why we see elephants in Loch Ness is that circuses used to go along the road to Inverness and have a little rest at the side of the loch and allow the animals to go and have a little swim around," Clark told CBS News. http://www.lochnessexperience.com/images/spicersightingcartoonreduced.jpg Bedtime Story http://www.thepinkflamingoblog.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2009/05/channel-creature.jpg http://www.discoverynews.us/DISCOVERY%20MUSEUM/CreaturesFromTheDeep/CreaturesIMAGES/Plesiosaur_Body_2_large.jpg Unidentified animal caught in the net of fishing vessel off New Zealand.

"The shape seen on the surface of the 22-mile Scottish loch is 65ft long and appears to have an oval body, a tail and four legs or flippers." http://bighugelabs.com/lolcat.php Loch Ness monster Scotland F A C T o r F I C T I O N ? sightings p h o o t s evidence Be careful...
