It is hard to get a sense of size from that image. It could simply be an otter.

I am afraid to look. It doesn’t have anything to do with a pleasure seeking MP hanging himself by his braces does it?

It looks like several other photos I’ve seen of it. It does not look like it was taken by someone sitting in a kayak. It looks like it’s from a more elevated position than that.

Maybe it escaped from Beatrix Potter's cottage:

I think there’s supposed to be one of these creatures in Lake Erie as well. I keep watching for it, but nothing so far.

Hubby and I didn’t see anything like that in Lake Windermere when we stopped there. We hiked all the way up to Alcock Tarn, too. Plenty of view from up there.

We didn’t see the Loch Ness Monster either, unless you count the giant plaster statue of it outside the local restaurant and tourist trap at the loch.

Not to be a kill-joy, but Lake Windemere isn't particularly deep like Ness (Loch Ness being just less than a 1/4 mile deep). Seems like it would be hard for a large creature to hide himself in a couple of hundred feet of water. And a big reptile has to eat an awful lot of food. IIRC, an adult great white (I know...it's a fish) eats 3% of its body weight daily (with a calf eating around 10%).

If a Nessy-like creature weighed a couple of tons and ate only 1% of its body weight daily, that would be 400 lbs a day (or a whopping 144,000 lbs a year).

That's a lot of trout!
