In any case, the real life megafauna of the seas is every bit as grand and wondrous as any legendary creature.

Nessie sightings are ever on the decline over the last few years. The "monster" only goes back to the '30s when the first sightings were. Weirdest thing I've heard about Nessie is that Crowley summoned the damn thing. The speck of truth is that the first sighting was literally down the road from his house where he was getting up to all sorts of batshit insane occult shenanigans at the time.
