It is not concerned with



  • Strange creatures lurking in lakes in Scotland, Sweden, Canada or anywhere else. Because I am asked the question so frequently I have added a page explaining why the Loch Ness monster is not a plesiosaur.

  • Decomposing sharks or any other modern marine animals. Decomposing carcases are frequently interpreted as being those of plesiosaurs, and I am contacted far too often by people trying to argue that that is what they are. All the pictures I've seen show something even superficailly completely unlike a plesiosaur, and marine biologists and shark experts confirm again and again that these are the carcases of sharks, most commonly basking sharks. Have a look at paleo.cc/paluxy/plesios.htm for a report by Glen Kuban and plesiosauria.com/living_plesiosaurs.php for a review by my friend and colleague Adam Smith.
