It's finally happened.

The Loch Ness Monster is now up for nomination to be Scotland's Official National Animal. Can this be the first time a fictional beast has even been considered to be an Official National Animal?

I guess it's not so weird, since the current Official National Animal is a unicorn. As one poster commented, "What will be next - Japan's national animal will be Godzilla?"

But y'know, I have no problem with that...the Loch Ness Monster very well could be Scotland's most famous attraction. So why not have fun with it?
