It's very difficult for me to rationalize the Loch Ness Monster and other plesiosaur-type water cryptids. I'd like to say it's a surviving plesiosaur, but since when do plesiosaurs bend their necks in a S-shape manner? And even if they could evolve their necks differently, why would they?

Do you suppose a convergent evolution from a more modern creature might be more likely?

I would say the former: 65 million years is a long time, after all. Maybe to use a way to quickly spot schools of fish?

This is such a huge gallery, I'll have to look through it soon. Some of the more plausible ones really inspire the world-builder in me!

We know of some species of sea snakes. You suppose those sea serpents sailors have seen could just be large species of sea snakes? We got giant squids, so I just thought why not?

cool sea monsters! I love sea serpents and monsters on the old maps. Where do you get all the data?

Ever heard of the Gourock Carcass? It was a carcass allegedly seen by Charles Rankin in Scotland in 1942. It was 27-28 feet long, had a long neck, a small flattened head with a muzzle, filled with large pointed teeth, laterally sited eyes, a rectangular tail (probably vertical in life), L-shaped flippers, no bones apart from the spine, and 6 inch bristles. The sharp tooth part appears to contradict the basking shark ID, so perhaps a great white shark or a close unknown relative.
