Horse-eels of Ireland

An acclaimed scientist and former member of the Loch Ness Investigation Bureau, Dr. Roy P. Mackal wrote the most extensive examination of all presentable data pertaining to the Loch Ness phenomenon in his book The Monsters of Loch Ness.
After systematically analyzing extensive volumes of information including hundreds of sightings, Dr. Mackal was left with the final impression that the most plausible identity for the Ness animals was either a long-necked amphibian or a thick-bodied eel. Understandably, it wouldn't have benefited his reputation to propose that two very different unknown animals were occasionally sharing the same loch. But while the archetype long-necked monster is so commonly affiliated with the "Loch Ness Monster," the presence of giant thick-bodied eels was long known to residents around the lake. Mackal came to realize this after conversing with locals who expressed their acceptance (or belief in) what they called "hair" or "horse" -eels: The general impression is that the "eel" was somehow, in addition to size, peculiar in some way as compared to the garden variety of small eel. In a few cases this peculiarity was identified with a mane, frill, or fin; or, in some instances, the witness implied when pressed that eel was the best identification he could make, but he could not explain why the term "hair eel" or "horse eel" was used (except perhaps that these terms are an integral part of the vocabulary of the region). Roy Mackal, "The Monsters of Loch Ness" [Page 147] As implied by Mackal, eel should only be considered a default reference; automatically classing them with a familiar local animal of comparable shape. Here is a brief excerpt taken from Dr. Mackal's Monsters of Loch Ness showing only a few of the eel-type animals reported in Loch Ness. Note the mane and conger likeness of the first two.
