The Seal Serpent.....

Hypothetical Long Necked Otariid (Cornes-based on Steller Sea Lion photo by Doug Forsell)

The Seal Serpent is a comprehensive reassessment of the theory that a species of pinniped may have evolved a more elongated neck than present extant species. The results of this research are awaiting publication and amount to over 300 pages in which we review the evidence from all over the world; Australia, Alaska, Europe, Ireland and Scandinavia.
Myself (Rob Cornes) and fellow researcher Gary Cunningham have uncovered a number of surprising facts during our research including discrepancies in historical accounts traditionally cited as evidence for such a creature as well as a previously unrecognised possible explanation for many European/UK sightings of smaller lake monsters and sea serpents. Along the way we have also developed a theoretical framework for how such an animal could have evolved. The information on this website is a summary of our findings.
It is a work in progress and will hopefully grow over the next few months.....
