JOINING OUR DINOSAUR HUNT FOR NOVEMBER 2018!

Crypto Hunt
Published on Mar 10, 2018

AS PROMISED, HERE IS A VIDEO FULLY EXPLAINING STEP-BY-STEP HOW TO JOIN OUR NEXT DINOSAUR HUNT ON CONGO-CAMEROON BORDER, WHAT YOU NEED TO DO, WHERE WE ARE GOING, AND THE REMOTE AND TRANQUIL LOCATION THAT IS A CURRENT HOT-SPOT FOR STRANGE ANIMALS!

This would be so grand and life changing for me. I see its a year old so I must’ve missed it anyway. But I’m sure there’ll be more. It would result in my blindness, though, as Id be out of luck for my eye drops, a third of which need refrigeration. Seeing any of these creatures might well be worth it though. Hey, a boy can dream.

PERU EXPEDITION REPORT SEPTEMBER-OCTOBER 2017

Crypto Hunt
Published on Dec 27, 2017

September-October 2017 trip to Peru, including our information gathering efforts in the Amazon. New info on the cryptids there have convinced us to return in 2018!

The great Bill Gibbons takes on the jungles of Peru in addition to the ones in Cameroon. Really nice film chock full of great info which I am sure you will love.

Terribly pleased to hear that next time he and his team will hit the storied swamps of the Madre de Dios, which some of you may recall is where my hero, Lt. Colonel Percival Harrison Fawcett reported briefly seeing an animal closely resembling a Diplodocus in 1907. His native help immediately abandoned their posts in fright and of course major setbacks ensued.

Will Bill be so lucky to see one?

Great fIlm footage of three Congo/Cameroon expeditions

Crypto Hunt
Published on Dec 9, 2016

Enjoy this great documentary produced by my good friend, Wayne Hall. Lots of footage from 1992/2001/2002/2003/2012! We are planning to return in late 2017, so enjoy, comment, and please – subscribe.

It is so unfortunate that the creationist young earth hype is brought up at the start and finish. It bothers me. Quite a bit. Then again, they’re the only ones who support the expeditions, or so it would seem, anyway. At any rate, these bleatings are blessedly brief.

Okay, having gotten that out I will say that this film is very well made with a lot of ground covered and it certainly does feature some great footage and a whole mess of great people who actually go out there and look. Towards the end, a mokele mbembe can be heard bellowing. What else could it be. Can’t beat that. Well, you could beat it with some footage, eh.

Many of the commenters wondered why the later expeditions had no drones. I wonder, too, Especially as they fly so well these days and have such nice cameras.

I am wondering whether they went back in 2017 as they mentioned. Will see what I can find.

Anyway, enjoy it, some excellent content.

The Mysterious Flying Ropen Of New Guinea

Unexplained Mysteries
Published on Feb 27, 2018

The mysterious flying Ropen of New Guinea. In this video we take a look at the mysterious flying Ropen of New Guinea. The Ropen, meaning “demon flyer,” is a cryptid thought to be either a big bat, or more commonly, a pterosaur on New Guinea Island. It’s said to produce a light, possibly to attract fish. According to the book Searching for Ropens, it’s “any featherless creature that flies in the Southwest Pacific, and has a tail-length more than 25% of its wingspan.”

Thank you for watching!

Thank you to CO.AG for the background music!

Wow, this video includes historical information that is new to me that has definitely locked in Ropen existence in my mind.

This one is kind of nice because it is totally random and the kid has no clue as to what just happened behind him.

Pterodactyl Sighting in Illinois

National Cryptid Society
Published on Oct 28, 2017

If you have had encountered a cryptid animal, strange creature, or what you can only describe as a “monster,” make a report with the National Cryptid Society at www.nationalcryptidsociety.org.

National Cryptid Society Case File #57;

Pterodactyl Sighting in Delavan, Illinois
This sighting occurred in the late 70’s.
The witness statement is as follows:

“Something just told me today to check the internet to see if other people have had sightings of this, so I’m telling mine. I don’t remember the exact year because I was young I think I was in first grade or second but we were living on a farmhouse in the country surrounding Delavan Illinois.

It was between 8 am and 10 am I think.

All I know it was a warm sunny summer morning and I decided to go outside and take our blue heeler for a walk.

On our property at that time we had a mowed pasture that had 4 or 5 apple trees, an apricot tree and a long grape vine bush and there was a 14 foot wide path that attached our front yard to that pasture.

While I was dead smack in the middle of it with the dog I heard this loud rustle on the other side of the trees.

When I looked to the south I saw this outrageously large bird just fly straight up and start flying east.

It scared the living daylights out of me because it was the size of our house and bigger than the apple trees and as soon as I saw it I knew what it was.

It was a friggin Pterodactyl!

The color of it was exactly the color of sand or tan over its whole body and it had no feathers. It had a long narrow mouth a long slightly curved horn out of the back of its head and no tail that I saw.

It looked like everything was attached by its tan skin.

When I saw this I came back to the front door screaming.

My older brother thought it would be funny to lock me out of the house because I came back to the front door screaming and beating on the door then he unlocked it because he saw how frantic I was and that’s when I told him what I saw.

I told dad that day to when he got home from work and he just said that I probably just saw an eagle or a hawk or maybe even a crane.

Nothing ever came of it and I just kept my mouth shut since then.

Til this day I know what I saw because of how old I was.

I was old enough to know what an eagle, hawk and crane looked like.

And now checking the web I see that other people have pictures and even videos of something extremely similar except for the color.

Well that’s my story do what you want with it but I know 100% that is what I saw that day.”

Note that you can also send your sightings of any cryptozooogical encounters you may have or had in the past to me at [email protected] as I would really love to finally start making videos such as this one for myself which I would post to my YouTube channel and also directly on this site.

I am looking forward to it, but in all my years only two people have reported anything to me… the last was years ago.

Fix that for me, eh?!

yeren

The Yeren, also known as the Chinese Wildman, is a cryptid frequently sighted in the forests and mountains of the Chinese province of Hubei. It is said to stand between six and eight feet tall, and is covered in reddish-brown hair.

The Xinhua News Agency, China’s official state-run press agency, claims that over four hundred people have encountered the Yeren. They are generally thought to be non-violent, though in 1980 a woman claimed to have been kidnapped by a Yeren. Occasionally, reports surface of white-haired Yeren. These are believed to be older examples of the species.

Yi qi

Yi qi
By Emily Willoughby
May 2015

Medium: Gouache & digital composite
Time taken: 20 hours
Published in: Wikipedia
High resolution: Purchase print

2-day gouache painting of Yi qi, the bizarre new membrane-winged scansoriopterygid. I wanted to see what the membrane would look like attaching further down on the body than in nearly every depiction I’ve seen so far, which show it attaching on the flank or at the armpit. I can’t get behind a leg-attachment point for this critter; it makes more sense to me that a long-legged animal would want its legs free and flexible. If a sprawling mobile hip-joint can be established for scansors, I’d potentially change my stance on that. Anyway, here’s a semi-new interpretation amidst a flood of recent restorations.

I’m definitely not convinced of powered flight for this critter, so here it is in an extended leap onto a log in pursuit of a Tiaojishan archisargid fly, Calosarugus.

Ooh arr, mateys, I love this!

Yowie Sighting (Audio Report #137) at Newry, New South Wales

Published on Mar 30, 2019

Driving north on the Pacific Highway along the Newry Forest, a couple pass what they believe to be a Yowie that had been clipped by a truck and lying on the road in March 2019.

The body appeared to be fresh and without trauma in terms of blood etc.

Was it simply temporarily knocked out or stunned, or was it picked up and taken away by one of it’s own kind?

Yowie Sighting (Audio Report #124) At Helensburgh, New South Wales

Yowiehunters.com_Yowie_Sightings
Published on Dec 13, 2018

Group of men camping near the Dam along Wilson’s Creek at Helensburgh.

The group camping night is prompted by unusual events experienced on the previous night by two of the friends, who say they had such a scare that they had to abruptly leave in the middle of the night.

“There was something down there”.

This particular night has an even more dramatic turn of events as the creature is caught eating from a can of food left outside a tent.

Haven’t posted any Yowie encounters in way too long a time, so let us dig these three!

D. Hatswell Creature Reports
Published on Jan 28, 2018

Witness Account: I have spent a great deal of time in the Haldon hills, especially around the Bird of Prey watching point and the surrounding pine woods. On one occasion while alone I explored a really dense area of pine trees, literally moving on hands and knees to get through the area. I was heading for a clearing on the hill side that was visible from the caravan park. After maybe half an hour or more I came across a huge clearing surrounded by tree

fake dodo

Is this an actual, living dodo?

Could it be?

Nope. Of course not.

Here’s the scoop:

Living Dodo Bird Caught on Video in Costa Rica?

In early March 2015, this video (no longer available) was posted online and claims to show a living Dodo Bird in the jungles of Costa Rica. The footage was captured by a trail camera.

Professor Paul Jubilut, a biologist from the Federal University of Santa Catarina, posted the video to his Facebook page, claiming he received it from a follower. The video shows the supposed Dodo walking around near the trail camera.

Though the video’s authenticity has been heavily debated since it hit the web, Professor Paul Jubilut posted this video, (no longer available) revealing that the footage was part of an ad campaign for a website about wildlife conservation. So while the footage may be fake, it was at least created for a good cause.

Oh well. I knew the second I saw “Costa Rica.” Never were  any dodos in Costa Rica.

LOL. Looks good, though, doesn’t it?

wendigo

The Wendigo

Once a lost hunter, this being grew so hungry in the freezing cold that it fed on the flesh of fellow humans. This taboo deed lead to the being to have an eternal hunger for human flesh. The legend of the Wendigo came from Algonquian Native American folklore and shows a rather gruesome side to nature and supernatural at the same time.

The Wendigo is said to only be found in cold places, including Canada. Thanks to the immunity to cold, harsh conditions, it can survive even the worst of snow storms. Some describe the Wendigo to be a cousin of Bigfoot, some describe it as a cousin of the Werewolf. No matter what it is relative to, it indeed isn’t something to be sought after.

There are several additions to the Wendigo legend. It has been fabled that the Wendigo can infiltrate the minds of others to turn them into fellow Wendigo. It has been fabled that the Wendigo is fast, or it is extremely slow. Nonetheless, one attribute that remains the same throughout stories is that the Wendigo can mimic human voices to lure its prey.

They always look so much like a rake…

 

 

White River Monster

Appearance

  • Grey skin
  • Four and a half feet wide (one and a third meters)
  • Twelve feet long (three and two thirds meters)
  • Huge mouth
  • Sharp pointy teeth

Fun facts

  • Seen only in White River in Newport, Arkansas
  • Featured in season two of Lost Tapes were they talked of it’s killing of three catfish noodlers
  • In 1973 a law was based to create a refuge for the white river monster, making it illegal to harm the animal in anyway.

Beliefs

  • It’s an elephant seal that entered the river~ this makes sense for seeing the grey giant body that could have been exaggerated, but it’s lifespan wouldn’t correlate with sightings, and likely wouldn’t be able to survive on food in the river
  • Could be a large unidentified fish~ I mean we are constantly finding new species so this might be just an unknown species
  • An ancestor of the Xiphactinus~ The description of the river monster is very very similar to the xiphactinus.

Good case, I think. I thought I heard a confusing bit at the start about the headlights’ illumination versus the animal’s position re the car’s hood. Need to listen again. Great production values and super nice audio quality.

The Troll Bridge

“Don’t be a pussy, Ryan! Just do it!”

I would’ve rather stuck my head in a blender and turned that shit on puree than do this, but I didn’t have a choice. It was either go across the bridge or be called a pussy the rest of my life. Or at least until the end of the summer. When you’re eleven, there’s really not much of a difference.

The only way to end this endless teasing was to cross the troll bridge. Well, we called it the troll bridge. We weren’t sure what it was really called back then. It wasn’t anything special, just a small stone bridge that went over a creek just outside of town. It wasn’t used much anymore, it wasn’t big enough for a car to go over and there was talk of tearing it down, but it just never got done.

I was scared of my own shadow back in the day, but there was just something about that bridge that put off any sane person. Maybe it was how solid your steps sounded when you walked across or how you swore you could hear dripping water, even during a hot, dry summer like that year.

Kids would say a troll lived under there. Which really was a ridiculous notion, the ditch underneath carved itself ever deeper every year during the spring floods but it still wasn’t deep enough for a giant troll. Still though, stories about a half blind, drooling monster from your worst nightmares ready to grab any passerby was enough for me to keep my distance.

But the kids made it a rite of passage. Cross the bridge and come back. Some of the more daring kids would stick their arm over the edge to taunt the troll into grabbing them.

I was the only kid who hadn’t done it yet. Darren was the one who practically dragged me there on that boiling summer afternoon. I felt like I was about to be baked alive, the back of my neck already felt stiff and tender with a sunburn. He gave me a shove and I nearly fell on my face.

I swallowed. “I’ll do it, I’ll do it!”

Darren nodded and crossed his arms, everyone’s eyes on me as I stood at the troll bridge.

Just there and back, I told myself, and maybe they’ll finally leave me alone.

My intent was to leg it as fast as I could. Like ripping off a band aid, the trick was to do it quickly. First pass I did just that. I reached the end before I knew it, turning around and throwing my hands in the air. I did get a few cheers but Darren was less than impressed, just staring me down as I began the return journey.

I came to a stop when I heard music.

My mom was making me take violin lessons at the time and it had become habit to listen carefully if I heard it playing on her CD player or if there was a busker at the local farmer’s market. But this wasn’t a CD or an amateur. This music sounded almost ethereal with how perfect it was. And much to my shock, it was coming from right under my feet.

Forgetting about my friends waiting for me at the other side, I walked to the side and stuck my head over the edge. I heard their startled gasps as I teetered a bit, trying to get a look at the musician making that delightful sound.

On first glance I thought they were a woman, their nearly white blond hair was so long it almost reached to their thighs and they were startlingly beautiful. They weren’t wearing a shirt though and they were absolutely a dude. They didn’t have shoes and only wore mud spattered jeans. Their violin was pristine, the brown wood shining as the bow hummed across the strings. The man sat near a puddle, eyes closed as he continued to play.

“Ryan, what are you doing!? We get it already, let’s go!”

Darren’s irritated voice shook me from my daze and I stood back up, sheepishly walking back to my friends. Somehow the few feet of difference made it impossible to hear the violinist. It didn’t matter though, everyone was cheering me on and clapping my back. Even Darren looked upon me approvingly, a rare occasion indeed. The sound of an ice cream truck in the distance caught our attention and ten minutes later we were all enjoying a delicious frozen treat and all talk of the bridge was forgotten.

But I didn’t forget the violinist. And I couldn’t forget how perfect his music was.

The next day was supposed to be my lesson, but Mr. Birk had come down with the flu so I was free to do what I wished with my time.

So I chose to go back to the troll bridge. Alone.

I was lucky I didn’t break my neck sliding down the bank, even more so that I didn’t accidentally drop my violin case. My mom would’ve blown her top if I’d broken the damn thing.

My perilous journey had not been in vain, as the moment my feet touched the ground I heard the music. I looked up and there he was. The violinist.

He clearly knew I was there, judging by his smirk, but he paid me no mind as I walked through the empty river bed up to him. I almost reached the puddle next to where he sat when I came to a stop. I don’t know why exactly I stopped, I suppose some instinct deep inside told me I should go no further. Or maybe it was common sense not to get too close to the weirdo with the long hair playing a violin under a bridge.

So instead I opened up my violin case and presented it to him. “Hey, um… I play too,” I said, my voice shaking.

The violinist’s playing came to an abrupt stop and he looked up at me. My skin crawled as I stared back into his eyes. I’m not quite sure what was wrong with them, it was like the river blue color of the iris had started to bleed into the whites of his eyes, making them unnatural in appearance. “… Show me,” he said, sounding breathless in his excitement.

And so with shaky hands I managed to squawk out ‘Happy Birthday’ to this incredibly talented man. My cheeks were probably bright red when I finished. I felt ashamed that I’d performed for someone so incredibly talented.

The violinist was quiet for a moment before raising his hands to clap. “Bravo, bravo! It’s been so long that I’ve had someone play for me, it’s a real treat. Would you like me to show you some things?” He said.

I couldn’t nod any more vigorously and he laughed, picking up his own violin and starting to play.

I was there until the sun was going down. My fingers were cramping and my arms ached but I was learning so much. I only realized so much time had gone on by when I looked up and saw the sky was turning orange. “Crap! My mom’s gonna kill me, I’m late for dinner!” I hurried to pack away my violin. “Sorry for taking up so much of your time, can I come back next week?” I’d been having so much fun that I never even bothered to ask his name.

“I’m afraid, my little friend, that next week you should stay as far away from my bridge as you can.”

The man was now beside me, tilting up my chin as he shook his head. His eyes seemed to be an even deeper blue now that it was starting to get dark. “You’re just lucky you did everything right, not knowing who you come to. But it’s going to rain next week, and it will rain heavily. So keep your distance, because next time your luck will not save you,” He said.

The heat of the day didn’t take away from the chill that shot down my spine. I only nodded wordlessly before bolting, clambering out of the river bed and scraping my arms up something good before I ran home. As predicted my mom was about to send out the dogs for me and I was just lucky she didn’t send me to bed with no supper.

I’m not sure what else I expected coming from a crazy guy living under a bridge. But his weather prediction ran true. Storms and pouring rain. All week. I imagine that river bed overflowed with raging water.

My mom woke me up early on Friday morning to tell me the news. Darren and another of my friends Jacob had drowned last night.

The theory was that they’d gone down to play and one of them fell in. The other tried to help them out and ended up getting washed away as well. During the funeral all I could think about was the violinist under the bridge. Had he drowned too? They hadn’t found another body, but he could’ve just been washed away.

I didn’t make the same mistake that Darren did. I waited until the water levels went down a bit before heading back to the troll bridge. It wasn’t close to overflowing anymore, instead it was just a small stream that probably wouldn’t go above your ankles. I crossed the bridge and listened carefully. All was silent except for the sound of bubbling water for a few minutes.Then I heard the violin once more.

I ducked my head over the edge and looked down. There he was, still playing, his feet resting in the water. I felt relieved and almost called out to him when I realized he had something stashed behind him. A bright red bicycle.

Darren’s bright red bicycle.

I didn’t stick around. I took off running and never looked back. I never went back to that bridge and I never will.

As I’ve become an adult, I’ve found out two things about our little town. One, that we’ve always had an abnormally high amount of drownings for the area. It’s not uncommon to lose five or six people a year, sometimes more, usually children or women. Unusually it doesn’t even have to be a flooding season for people to die, all there needs to be is a few inches of water for a body to turn up. And two, that bridge had a name before we called it the troll bridge.

It was the Nixie Bridge. Named after a creature that lurked underneath, playing his violin to lure in those who were foolish enough to listen to his song.

Thank you very much for watching, until next time…

I didn’t have much hope for this one because it has “prove” in the title. It’s not proof, of course, but it is very well done and the cases are well presented. I’m familiar with all but a precious few of the mentions. As for myself, I am definitely on board with all of these, especially the ones in the United States. Including the spiders… people relentlessly tell me of the allegedly natural limitation on their internal airways. I counter with the information that Mother Nature has little concern for the ideas of man.
