Is this photo by a Scottish sailor the best proof yet of Loch Ness Monster?

best proof yet of Loch Ness monster?

Watched the video.  Well, it IS a much clearer picture of an unidentifiable object or creature…

But the video does say the picture was taken to a team of US military monster experts ( ? ) ... and also to a Nessie sighting specialist ( where do you get a degree specializing in Nessie sightings?).

The guy that took the photo says he believs the monster is real, and there are way too many people in the world who have seen it for it not to exist ( guess that proves it).

It goes on to say that some experts (?) believe ... yada yada yada…

That link’s not working for me, but I’m guessing it’s the same as this?

Does look like a manatee to me and if you have a mom with kids you’d get what might losk like humps when they swim together.  However, I’m not sure about the most famous photo that looks like a long neck with a prehistoric head .... that might not have been a neck and head at all but the tail of some kind of fish or snake.  A manatee has not a tail that looks like that nor a long, narrow neck so I think people may well be seeing a lot of different critters, not just one.

Most speculation is that this picture is of a sturgeon…

Does that mean this thread should be referred to as “The Sturgeon’s Photo”?

Sure looks like a sturgeon to me. I’ve seen them up close and personal here in Florida.

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.

It appears to be a another hoax:
