Of Monsters and Monstrous Misquotations

In case I forgotten to mention it, Dr. Darren Naish's peerless blog Tetrapod Zoology has moved to the Scientific American family (see title link). This naturally means a higher profile, which naturally means a higher risk of being misquoted. Here Darren protest a newspaper's misrepresentation which quoted him as supporting the existence of the Loch Ness Monster when he had no t even been talking about that subject. He'd been talking about accounts of sea serpents, a very different subject. Darren thinks the good evidence for Nessie is as elusive as the monster, but can't bring himself to dismiss some of the accounts from the high seas.
