You say it's not a hoax (finding of the pleisiosaur fossils), but why is there nothing about it found on the rest of the net or on tv? One would think that it would be huge news. There's not even anything about it on the LN fan site. The loonies should be out in full force right now. I have always loved stories about the LN monster. I would be thrilled if it were true. But there's simply nothing else out there about it. Are you sure it can't be a hoax?

"The Surgeon's Photo"
In 1994 it is true that an old man, on his death bed confessed to making the photo out of a toy submarine and a carved monster head. Although, there were huge flaws with his story. As seen on Discovery channel the picture you have in your archive of hoax photos is only a *cropped* photo of the monster. In the original photo which was shown on tv, you could clearly see BOTH sides (shores) of the bay from a very far away shot. And also unknown to many people, is that there was a *2nd* photograph taken of the monster facing the top left of the shot with its head arched and dipping into the water. Also a cropped photograph where both sides of the bay were clearly seen. If the photo in your gallery was to be taken as the man who claimed it to be a hoax was, it would have had to been one large toy subarmine as well as placed far, deep in the Loch Ness lake. The man who credited it as his own work said he simply waded out no more than 3 feet in shallow water when he took the picture... The Discovery channel show claimed that the man was simply trying to draw attention to himself or was crazed.

Reference the surgeons picture of the Loch Ness monster.
When the picture was taken, it included a section of shoreline. This showed that the 'monster' was only 1-2 feet in height. However, when the local newspaper published it, they chopped the shoreline out of the photo and we have the picture we see today. The original photo was located in the local newspaper offices during a documentary on Loch Ness in the 1990s. As the Surgeon submitted the photo with the shoreline, it is unlikely he would have claimed anything about the 'monster' picture. He would know that if anyone looked they would come across the original in the newspapers archives. I am sorry I have no references for the above.
