The late Grover Krantz, an anthropologist at Washington State University, maintained that even a fuzzy photograph, snapped by an overexcited layperson, can constitute important evidence and should be carefully considered by the scientific community.6 Joseph Gennaro, a biologist at New York University, pointed to the 1977 photo of Champ,7 taken by Sandra Mansi and stated, "The picture was subjected to all kinds of computer noise-elimination techniques to verify that it was not a floating log or a ripple, not turbulence, not wind current, not glare, not a fake-that it was actually a phenomenon that could not be explain by any critics of cryptozoology."8 Dr. Roy Mackal of the University of Chicago was a prominent cryptozoologist.

In his book Searching For Hidden Animals(1980), pioneering American cryptozoologist Dr Roy P. Mackal (until his retirement working in an official capacity as a biochemist at the University of Chicago) noted that the Inuits originally inhabiting King Island had provided a detailed account of the greatly-feared tizheruk to ethnologist Dr John White, formerly of Chicago's Field Museum of Natural History.

...
Mackal considered that the tizheruk was most probably a scientifically-unknown species of long-necked seal, and went on to suggest a more specific identity for it that is extremely thought-provoking. Namely, a currently-undiscovered northern counterpart of the Antarctic's (in)famously aggressive leopard seal Hydrurga leptonyx (aka the sea leopard).
...
If, as postulated by Mackal, a creature comparable in form and ferocity to the leopard seal existed in the Bering Strait, it would certainly make a plausible identity for the tizheruk.
...
Concluding his book's tizheruk coverage, Mackal speculated that this cryptid may resemble an enlarged version of the leopard seal in general appearance, but more specialised in that it either lacks forelimbs completely (as the Inuits seem not to mention them in their lore relating to it), or possesses reduced versions that it keeps folded tightly against its body when seen out of the water (just as the leopard seal does), rendering them virtually invisible and thus enhancing its superficially serpentine appearance.
