You can knock it
You can rock it
You can go to Timbuktu
But you’ll never find a nessie in the zoo
You may see an anaconda, or giraffe and kangaroo
But you’ll never see a nessie in a zoo

More soon, really. For now, I’m afraid all you get is this poxy teaser post… plus some of the lyrics to The Family Ness, staple viewing for my 9-year old self.

    Wow. Yes, I remember all the words too. And Angus and Elspeth blowing on their secret thistle whistles (try saying that with braces!).

    You realise that most of your readers have absolutely no idea what we’re all talking about…

    Yeah, good isn’t it. In other words, we’re among a very select few – an elite even.

    Thats in the Oxford Natural History Museum and is a Cryptoclidus. Hooray, do i win something? Incidentally, the OUMNH is awesome and has plenty of stuff for everyone, Iguanodon and Tyrannosaur skeleton as well as Pterosaur stuff. For the Pleistocene enthusiast there is lots of British material there as well.

    Here’s my chance to resurrect an old posting from 1 August this year:

    … we might note that plesiosaurs [unlike crocodilians] never developed tree-climbing, which — who knows? — might have saved them from extinction. That said, I don’t know that anyone has ever really looked for Nessie in the treetops.

    Darren noted the same day: “Godammit, I feel a blog article on Loch Ness coming on…”. Foreshadowing — your sign of quality bloggature.

    You mean “British cartoon geeks in their late twenties to early thirties” then?

    Plesiosaurs in the Loch years ago…:>) ( And isn’t the
    phot in the inset supposed to be Champ? )
