Loch Ness Elephant?

Paleontologist and painter Neil Clark has suggested that the Loch Ness monster was perhaps a paddling elephant. Neil Clark has suggested that the silhouette of the Loch Ness monster, with its long slender neck and characteristic humps resembles silhouette of swimming Indian elephant Clark suggests that a circus caravan could have stopped to allow its elephants a rest and have a swim. Circuses used to go along the road to Inverness Unsuspecting onlookers could have mistaken the submerged pachyderm for a strange beast. Clark's theory is published in the current edition of the journal of the Open University Geological Society.
