Old Naturalist Jokes

You learn something new every day.

For instance I remember Sir Peter Scott the noted naturalist, solemnly declaring that yes indeed Nessie did exist. Nessiteras Rhombopteryx was it's official Latin name according to Sir Peter.

'Nessiteras Rhombopteryx' ... Flipper Shot by Robert Rhines 1972

Of course Nessie is no longer being looked for, and someone also realised that the Latin name given to it, was also an anagram for 'monster hoax by Sir Peter S'

Who says you can't have a last laugh from beyond the grave .... Old naturalists never die, they just compost jokes.
