Found on Facebook, not quite the same as FOAF (friend of a friend).
With almost certainty that this is a gaff as Loren posted about here on Cryptomundo in the past, I thought it interesting enough within the cryptozoological angle to share here with the Cryptomundians.
Mummified Baby Nessie with Internal Organs
The gentleman in the photo, reportedly a physician that conducted the autopsy on the wee beastie presented here (if memory serves), may have been rumored to have participated in the Bathymetrical Survey of the Fresh-Water Lochs of Scotland.
The provenance card accompanying the exhibit identifies him as Dr. Alexander Moore.
“1912 Dr. Alexander Moore led an expedition to prove the existance (sic) of a creature said to live in Loch Ness. His team searched the loch for more than 3 weeks and returned with one infant specimen. The creature was already dead when it was discovered but the Dr. was able to preserve the heart, one lung and a segment of intestine.”

According to Roadside America, Doc Weitzel’s Traveling Curiosity Show closed in 2010, and I’m guessing that the “Mummified Baby Nessie with Internal Organs” has disappeared forever…
