I remember watching a program about that when I was little, about that coelacanth. I was scared for like a week. It's not that I`m scared of fish it`s just that... well... ok. Maybe I ma a little scared of fish. At least ocean fish. And some freshwater ones too x_x

Thanks for the response
As far as ocean/river/lake species go you really can't rule out anything. Recently(a couple years ago I think) they found a Celocanth in the waters of the Amazon. This species was thought to be extinct for thousands of years as only fossils had been found. Lo and behold some fisherman pulled up a five foot specimen. Despite these sorts of discoveries you really have to take the "giant sea beast" thing w/ a grain of salt. You would be more likely to find gigantism/hypertrophy in squid and octopus species(which I find fascinating).

"Yeah I was wondering that too... I'd imagine a photo of the print wouldn`t be as good evidence to test for anatomical features, but it could prove that he didn`t just go there and dig a footprint or something."

They`ve got video of them finding these. These are the guys from the SyFy (Sci-Fi) Channel`s show, "Monster Quest" and they filmed the finds as well as some other "phenomena" in the region.

To bikenutt and lionheart: I couldn't agree more. Lake monsters are a different issue though. Loch Ness, we know those pics were about an elephant swimming with its strunk out of the water. But about Caddie and Ogopogo, who knows huh. If Bloop can actually be an enormous f*cking creature, then maybe there`s a chance we`d find evolved marine reptiles deep down there as well. Imagine dinosaurs with viper fish eyes and teeth. Whether they`d be actually able to have a high survivability outside deep water is debatable. There`s always the slight possibility that these things exist. I know for one that it`s hard to track down animals in the Hymalayan areas because of heavy snow storms. Various caverns have also not been explored decently. There could well be living links between the DNA of ours and our ancestors (apart from known species). Only time will tell, and hell, we might not even be around to witness.
