Some Sciensists say that creatures such as the Loch Ness Monster and Sasquatch cannot exist, saying that its so improbable they cannot exist. Even though creatures such as celocanth have been confimed to still be alive today, they still won't change their minds! Well I'm not just talking about those two, I'm talkin about the whole lot of em (okopoko, yeti, sea serpents, Jersey Devil, Mothman, etc) What do u guys think?

Well, we certainly don't know everything about nature right now, so I don't see us saying "they CAN'T exist." For instance the original Loch Ness Monster incident was a fake. It seems far fetched but maybe the guy who actually saw it first couldn't find proof of it so he hoaxed it to get the idea out in the world. Sasquatch/Yeti? If someone has actually seen them I think there is actually a good chance of them being true. Like I said there is a lot we don't know about the world, and there may be some kind of near-human monkey/mutant furry "thing" out there that can survive in mountains and jungles.

You didnt give a option for maybe.

There has been nothing found in Loch Ness to support a giant creature and Scientists say that there is not enough food present in the Loch to support such claims.

Despite that there was yet another sighting of something recently in the Loch caught on film that caused waves and what looked like a dark object under the waters surface. Still unexplained and still no clue as to whats going on.

Bigfoot I think does exist. There are way too many stories around the nation of large hairy ape like creatures. Bigfoot is just one of hte better known ones.

Also their are numerous legends of the Sasquatch, the New Jersey Devil, the some of the Wendigo legends in Indian lore and there are legends of a swamp creature in both the Florida Everglades and the Louisiana Bayou's.

Cryptobiologists will tell you legendary creatures usually have a basis in fact. So what prompted Indians to create legends and stories of giant ape men?

Probably. since the redwood forests and Loch ness are so big and deep, we will never know, unless we kill one of them. Loch Ness is like 500 feet deep, and murky. The Redwoods,I can't even say how big they are.

I read in a book that so-called Yetis might be the last remaining specimens of a species of primate similar to the Gorilla, only far bigger, that lived in the Himalayas during the Pleistocene. Given the difficult conditions to conduct searches and lack of population in the area, it's not entirely impossible that there are still some left that are occasionally seen as Yetis, although there's no proof for this.

Never seen one, I dont think I could prove one either without capturing it on film or the like . :) THAT DOES NOT MEAN IT DOES NOT OR CAN NOT EXIST.

The Bigfoot/Sasquatch and Yeti are theorized to possibly be decendants of Gigantopithecus, A giant Sasquatch sized primate whose remains have been found in China.

On a similar note any see where South African fisherman caught another Coelacanth? Coelacanth - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Id be more concerned about a regions sustainability of life. As was pointed out, Loch Ness doesnt harbor the necessary needs a large animal would need to survive there. Sasquatch? perhaps, but then again people in america shoot other people all the time for having mistaken them as deer so im pretty skeptical about what ANY outdoorsman says about what he is sure he saw. Solitude, combined with unfamiliar terrain mixed with a small amount of suspicion or fear equals monster sighting.

But to be fair, that's America, where you get all sorts of people.

Or UFO sighting.
