Spooky... Loch Ness Monster Found?

Ok, where's Rod Serling when you need him? I wonder if this find is legit or just another hoax. Either way, it's just more fuel for the fire on the debate about whether ol' Nessy is real or simply legend. Pretty interesting find if it turns out to be a legitimate find. I need to look up to see just how old the legend of the Loch Ness Monster is...

A Scottish retiree has discovered a fossil of a 150-million-year-old reptile on the shores of Scotland's mythical Loch Ness, press reports said Wednesday.

Retired junkyard dealer Gerald McSorley, 67, said he "literally tripped over" the algae-covered fossil in shallow water near Loch Ness, Scotland's most famous inland body of water.

He took it to experts at the National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh, where the fossil was confirmed to be that of a plesiosaur, a long-necked sea reptile about 150 million years old.
