By large, I mean crocodilian size. And by cold, I mean wherever the temperature reaches 0 degrees Centigrade/32 degrees Fahrenheit/273 Kelvin and beyond. I hate to admit this, but a lot of people I know vehemently agree that the Loch Ness Monster exists. Yes, I know, I rolled my eyeballs too. But no amount of eyeball rolling will change that fact. All I can do is to put together an arsenal of facts and endeavor to exorcize the demons of stupidity. Not only do these people think the monster exists, they believe it's a Plesiosaur or something similar. That's a big reptile. As far as I'm concerned, in my non-PhD Zoology opinion, it's just too cold for a reptile of that size to survive in Loch Ness. Of course my opinion counts for nothing unless I have something to back it up. To get to the point: are there any exceptions to the rule that large reptiles are simply unable to survive in areas where it isn't hot year round?
