  4. The Loch Ness is located in the Scottish Highlands at 57°18′N 4°27′W

  5. Some think it is a plesiosaur. A plesiosaur is a prehistoric cold blooded, air breathing marine reptile. Some say the water of the loch ness is too cold for a cold blooded creature. Is it a new species of long neck seal? No one has ever seen one basking on a rock. Could it be an elephant swimming? Many circuses were in town throughout the sightings. Maybe an overgrown eel? A Sturgeon? Or long-necked newt?
