Here's a good selection of data from yesterday, courtesy of The Anomalist, on water-based cryptids:
New Clues to Mystery Sea Monster BBC News. Dr. Yvonne Simpson supposedly has a grip on what the strange carcass found washed ashore off Stronsay, Scotland, in 1808 really was. She will reveal her findings at the Orkney International Science Festival that began today. With few tissue samples to work with, Dr. Simpson is said to be working with "several items recovered from the remains." If these items aren't tissue, what are they? There's more at Dr. Simpson's website The Strange Case of the Stronsay Beast and at Orkneyjar - The Stronsay Beast. With photos and ilustrations. Elsewhere, Ghostsamongus examines the worldwide legends of Lake Monsters.
