No. 81 – Nessie

The Loch Ness monster drawn by Ron Smith (1924–2019) for prog 674’s Tharg’s Future Shocks: The Dawn of the Loch Ness Monster written by Nicholas Barber v “Surgeon’s photograph” (Dr. Robert Kenneth Wilson [supposedly], 1924) and Plesiosaurus (National Museum of Nature and Science, Tokyo)

The photo was a hoax. Plesiosauria has been extinct for 65 million years. It’s for tourists.

The Loch Ness monster – affectionately known as “Nessie” – had a busy year in 2017 with a record number of “official” sightings, totalling eight – quite respectable for a mythical beast.*
