  1. Hello,
    Do you have any anecdotes/sightings to share in Loghs Auna or Shanakeever? They seem so small, yet have some stories about them.

    1. No, but worth checking this book out:

    2. One other renowned cryptid is missing from this list: Nessie's American cousin Champ from Lake Champlain USA. Often billed as America's Loch Ness Monster. Believed by one researcher, who witnessed the beast, to resemble or be a Tanystropheus, a creature extinct for millions of years.
