The narrator seemed to have some trouble with punctuation. Anyway, quite frankly I…guess that the man just cracked after years of searching and hoaxed the image one way or another. I mean, if he had been looking for the thing in years then I reckon he would’ve taken more pictures during these ‘‘10 minutes’’ they apparently observed the object.
And yet I don’t get why people keep insisting it’s a plesiosaurus or other such nonsense. I mean, I get wish fulfillment, but actual adults and scientists doing this…is just strange.
The thing is that even if a plesiosaurus’s descendants somehow survived to modern day then they’d keep adapting or perish. They’d be a subject to evolutional pressures like any other species. Most of the so-called ‘‘living fossils’’ have survived in ecosystems that have stayed stable over millions of years, in a niche where their current body build is close to perfect and thus doesn’t require them to keep evolving to survive. I doubt a lake, or even a modern-day sea, would consider a plesiosaurus or any other prehistoric creature to be of a perfect bodybuild.
To expect a breeding population of plesiosaurus’s to survive for an extended period of time in a lake and actually resemble their ancestors would require them to have gotten into the lake via time travel. Now that said, it could be a prankster from the 34’th century playing a practical joke on us.
I apologize for the rant. It’s just something that bugs me a lot.
