…the locals actually did identify and name the animal in question as “the great salamander”, or more simply just “the salamander” for at least two centuries before outsiders came in telling them it must be this or that. There is historical documentation this is how the locals identified the beast long before the press came along trying to sell people on plesiosaurs and long necks. (Long neck sightings are distinctly in the minority in witness reports from Loch Ness, and then usually at distances that would preclude telling a tail from a neck).

People often ask what is the difference between such creatures and those referenced in cryptozoology. For me; the term ‘cryptid’ is used to describe creatures which could well exist on a zoological level but which have not been discovered; or are sighting in places where they do not originate. The term also covers reports of animals thought extinct but which are allegedly still sighted. At times ‘zooforms’ may well veer into cryptozoological circles but for me ‘zooforms’ are manifestations which have no evidence to support them whatsoever in a zoological sense.

It’s a little known fact, however, that there are more than a few Scottish lakes with legends of diabolical creatures attached to them.”
