Happy 80th Anniversary for the Loch Ness Monster

Guest blog by Scott Mardis, April 14, 2013

80 years ago today, on April 14, 1933, Mrs. Aldie Mackay of Drumnadrochit allegedly saw a large, whale-like animal rolling and plunging on the surface of Loch Ness. This was the sighting that began the modern Nessie flap. So, happy 80th birthday, you decrepit old plesiosaur!


  1. Didn't plesiosaurs inhabit warm tropical seas where the temperature would be unbearably high for humans as opposed to cold, dark lakes like loch ness?

  2. Still batting Zero, Joe. See the paper recently posted on this blog:
