Scottish Quiz

To true believers, the Loch Ness Monster is a relic from the Cretaceous that survived the great extinction. Could it really have been a long-necked plesiosaur ?

1) No, eels and an excess consumption of Scottish Whisky explain the sightings.

2) No, Plesiosaurs were exclusively saltwater animals.

3) Not unless Nessie does the backstroke, as the plesiosaur's neck was adapted for feeding on the bottom, not for stretching up out of water.
