Nessie so exists.

It's not just Nessie, you know. There's a whole world of the damn things out there: Ogopogo, Manipogo, Chessie, Elbst, Lou Carcolh, Mishipizhiw, Vodianoi... Useful for Scrabble, but seemingly none as photogenic as Nessie.

For the ultimate in tack-a-rama, there's a hideous Scottish gift shop called 'Thistle Do Nicely' (GEDDIT!!!) on the Royal Mile that sells little Nessie statues broken up into coils so that you can stick them in the soil around the bottom of pot plants and they'll look as if they're swimming through the mud.

Personally I think it's almost as amazing that they found that toad that far down in the Loch and still alive and kicking, as finding any plesiosaur would have been.

Agreed re the toad. But of course the general public and the "cryptozoologists" won't care:

Needless to say, there's precisely zero evidence for the Loch Ness Monster. But it does generate vital tourist revenue.

A good place for information on Nessie and other cryptozoological animals is this site:

We have another loch monster you know. Shes called Morag and lives in Loch Morar.

Morar is 310 m deep, the deepest body of freshwater in the UK, and plenty of room for a monster.
