    If things carry on warmin’ up at the rate some say Loren then this sort of thing’s only go’n'o become all the more common.

    But whatever’s driving the likes of the mangy foxes and squirrels me an’ our Kid’ve independently seen wand’ring round Liverpool City centre’s also ultimately go’n'o increase the possibility of cryptids being run over in the middle of New York Moscow or Rio de Janeiro.

    In which case it’s good to strike the balance between alerting only semi repentant distinctly unrustic city dwelling idiots like myself to possible misidentifications of the common we might make and making us feel TOO foolish about our ignorance just in case one day one of us actually ends up depositing the remains of a genuine chupacabra-Bigfoot cross in the bin rather than run the risk of being mocked.

    It shows how more and more unnatural city dwellers lives’re becoming though and once Google Glass and its descendants become the norm how many of us will ever look directly upon the real world ever again?

    Boom! And Loren drops the mic and leaves the stage.

    As usual with our host, credulity is defeated by an understanding of reality.

    Though I WISH the dead and decomposing (probable) whale were something more spectacular, as it looks pretty cool.

    My first post here, though I’ve been following Mr. Coleman for years. Just want to do my part to support a commitment to a cryptozoology premised on clear thinking and healthy skepticism.

    Wow- that is by far the most reptilian looking “whale” I’ve ever seen.
    Notice how it seems to have a turtles head with it’s eyes closed attached
    to it’s back. If this thing was a turtle, or 2 turtles – one on top of the
    other pointed in opposite directions, as turtles sometimes do, then it
    could be the species responsible for so many sea serpent and lake monster
    reports. If it were a long necked turtle (Pleurodira) then it could be our
    explanation for Daedalus, Nessy, Chessy, Champ, and many more “long-necks.”
    As Loren himself and Bernie Heuvelmans have pointed out in their writings, turtles of immense size have been reported on the high seas on occasion. In Cryptoland they are rarely considered as candidates for monsters even though they have many unheralded attributes that should make them the #1 suspect.
    When I inserted the known characteristics of turtles into Roy Mackal’s chart of probable nominees for the Loch Ness Monster (Monsters of Loch Ness) I was amazed to see that not only did turtles rate higher than anything else on his chart, but that he also did not even consider turtles to be included in the first place.
    Like Rodney Dangerfield, Chelonians get no respect.
