"Naga" photo? -
July 14, 2007
A reader reports: I turn to you to look into a questionable picture we saw when we were at Khao Yai. It was a picture of a Naga. The picture is in the middle of the website, a group of GI's holding a Naga. It is the same picture we saw in Khao Yai. I was curious if you ever heard of this - I have to assume it is fake but I admit it is a good job of faking. Do you know anything about it?
That is a real photo of U.S. soldiers (we think in Phuket) holding a deep sea ribbon fish. It has nothing to do with anything that would come out of a river.
Update: Several readers have written to point out that this is an oarfish. More on this photo is here and here and here.
