The UnMuseum - The Loch Ness Monster

www.unmuseum.org [cached]

Roy Mackal, a biologist at the University of Chicago who was interested in cryptozoology, built a system of underwater microphones and placed them in the loch to see if he could detect any sounds the monster might make.
"Bird-like chirps", "knocks" and "clicks" were recorded along with a swishing sound which Mackal thought might be the sounds of an animal echolocation to find and hunt its prey. Mackal noted that the sounds stopped whenever a boat passed by and resumed after it had reached a safe distance. Mackal has suggested a large mammal like a manatee or a zeuglodon (primitive whale). Others suggest an unknown species of long-necked seal or giant otter. Earlier, Mackal also considered it might be a giant sea slug.


The UnMuseum - Mok'ele-mbembe

However, in 1980, Dr. Roy Mackal, a biologist at the University of Chicago and James Powell, a herpetologist, decided to go and take another look at the source of the mok'ele-mbembe tales.
Mackal and Powell suspected that the creature was a small relative of the Apatosaurus, but gathered no proof.
