I went to the scene of the Second Seminole Indian war in Florida. The U.S. Army lost because they were outgunned. There was also a Bigfoot sighting in this area and for good reason. The complex is large and has a rich abundance of food.
Beautiful Florida rainforest scenery all the way though, in a historically significant place. Lush and lovely.
4 Mysterious Videos That Prove The Tasmanian Tiger Still Exists
Published on Dec 21, 2017
Supposedly, the last living Thylacine, or Tasmanian Tiger, died on 7th September 1936 whilst in captivity. However, sightings of the creature have continued on into the modern day, whilst it has occasionally been filmed. So, from footage confirmed by a Spanish Zoologist, to a 1973 video considered to be the one of the best out there, take a look.

Well, unlike the uploader, I put quotes around the word prove, because, well, they do no such thing. They are all way too blurry and / or distant for that.
However, like the uploader, I do feel that other factors make these videos quite compelling. Gait, shape and other mostly visual things have me more than hopeful.
North Wales Little Folk. A man dressed in green. Welsh Pixies
Deborah Hatswell BRITISH BIGFOOT REPORTS
Published on Oct 8, 2018
Witness Report. I would like to report a strange experience that happened some time ago now, I have never forgotten this incident and Im happy for you to share it. I was with a few friends many years ago, driving around north wales at about 5am we were driving on the country lanes, and right in front of us a small man who stood about 3 feet tall appeared from a bush at the side of the road.
Pretty neat tale … wish I could see a cryptid. The little people are an ancient lot, having been reported as far back as history goes. These diminutives are just as exciting in my world as the huge ones. Anything nature has to offer is a turn on for me.
Strange Finds at Cannock Chase. Dolls Heads & Bones
Deborah Hatswell BRITISH BIGFOOT REPORTS
Published on Oct 9, 2018
A gentleman who was visiting Cannock Chase in Staffordshire came across some very strange finds. He contacted me by email and kindly agreed to share the images of the finds he came across that day, “I had also heard wood knocking in this area, it didn’t sound like a woodpecker, a much slower and a heavier sound of something being struck. I would be surprised if it was children responsible for the structure as the location is quite off the beaten track, away from the well trod areas of Cannock Chase. The collection of bones (sheep or deer?) was kind of bizarre too I can’t see a reason for them being there inside the structure.
Kind of creepy. It begs the question of “Who?” Was it a disturbed person putting down clues or memories of a fantasy or something more sinisster? Or was it a creature of some sort? Perhaps one day we will know. Perhaps not.
Grisly discovery: Bones reveal Neanderthal child was eaten by large bird
Archaeologists in Poland have identified the prehistoric bones of a Neanderthal child eaten by a large bird.
The small hand bones were found in a cave in Southern Poland’s Malopolska region, according to Science in Poland, a public information service devoted to Polish science. Discovered a few years ago, the remains were thought to be animal bones until they were analyzed earlier this year.
Tiny holes in the bones indicate that they passed through a large bird’s digestive system, according to Professor Pawel Valde-Nowak of the Jagiellonian University in Krakow. It’s not clear, however, whether the bird attacked and ate the young Neanderthal or scavenged the remains of a dead child.
Believed to be about 115,000 years old, the bones are the oldest human remains ever discovered in Poland.
Experts from the Jagiellonian University and Washington University in St. Louis confirmed that the remains are digital bones from a child’s hand.
The Archaeological Museum of Krakow and the Polish Academy of Sciences also participated in the research, which will be published in the Journal of Paleolithic Archaeology.
The closest human species to homo sapiens, Neanderthals lived in Eurasia for around 350,000 years. Scientists in Poland report that Neanderthals in Europe mostly became extinct 35,000 years ago. However, there are a number of theories on the timing of Neanderthals’ extinction, with experts saying that it could have occurred 40,000, 27,000 or 24,000 years ago.
In a separate study, researchers recently reported that climate change may have played a more important part in Neanderthals’ extinction than previously thought.
Fox News’ Chris Ciaccia contributed to this article.

Good Lord, what a way to go. Freakin’ shivers, man. Maybe the kid was scavenged. Jesus, I hope so.
Pretty foul to see the climate change fear agenda thrown in there for no good reason. Well, it is the MSM, after all. They just need their nuts drop kicked. The Neanderthals interbred with us until they were totally assimilated. You and I have Neanderthal blood. Look it up.
Anyway, there are quite a few modern birds that are quite capable of killing and eating a person, especially a little kid. Not even considering the remaining thunderbirds. But back in the day it was a lot worse as there were many more species of much larger proportion than we have now. And birds are always hungry.
My favorites are the huge Terror Birds, previously thought to be a South American exclusive, but remains have been found as far north as Florida… so far. Hehe. We can thank God that these things are extinct. Well, that is, we hope they are. If you ask some gauchos you might hear some things…

Terror birds didn’t fly, so, for a totally terrifying “regular” bird, how about this guy…
An artist’s rendition of a Giant Haast’s eagle (Harpagornis moorei) attacking an unfortunate New Zealand moa. The Haast was the biggest eagle that ever existed (as far as we know). They were at least 40% bigger than today’s biggest eagles but had a small 10′ wingspan for hunting in dense scrub. The last one was seen around the year 1400 by the Maoris who’d killed off the moa which was their dinner, don’tcha know. So, not really all that long ago. It was first described by Julius von Haast in 1871 from remains discovered by F. Fuller in a former marsh.
Moas weighed in at a good 500+ pounds. Capiche?
Here’s another rendering of a critter you don’t want to meet…
There are today occasional reports of bird terror… so please keep an eye out on little kids. An eagle or large hawk could quite easily send them to Heaven in an incomprehensibly terrifying way. Poodles and wiener dogs are most assuredly fair game also.
BIGFOOT ROAR RECORDED BY ROCK HOUND!!

Individuals claiming to have seen Bigfoot describe it as a large, hairy, muscular, bipedal ape-like creature, roughly 6 ft –9 ft tall, covered in hair described as black, dark brown, or dark reddish. Some descriptions include details such as large eyes, a pronounced brow ridge, and a large, low-set forehead. The top of the head has been described as rounded and crested, similar to the sagittal crest of the male gorilla, with a strong, unpleasant smell.
The enormous footprints for which the creature is named are claimed to be as large as 24 inches long and 8 inches wide.
Proponents of Bigfoot’s existence claim that the creature is omnivorous and mainly nocturnal.

This is superb! I love this video!
That is because this man is a rock hound with no thought of the wildlife around him except that it’s nice. That means no preconceived notions about anything.
When he hears the big guy suggesting he leave, you can, if you are human, tell he is genuinely struck with a feeling of powerfully compelling confusion that then rapidly turns into primal fear … and from that point on the roar and getting the Hell out of there are the only things he is thinking about.
Think of the volume the big guy let loose with if it showed up that well on the camera. I am speaking of before the uploader made his adjustments. That is the one to listen to.
This is a blast from my past… the blog is What’s All This, Then and it was May 3, 2009.
Those were heady days and I was even worse than I sometimes am today!
Apollo anomalies were all the rage and there were some really good ones.
This is a crop of the somewhat notorious Apollo 17 image AS17-137-20925HR. Why notorious? It’s that green thing. Some have been so bold as to suggest it’s some sort of lifeform. Since this is the moon, I’m not too sure about that conjecture… Although it has been shown that the moon has an atmosphere and water ice, there doesn’t appear to be a heck of a lot of water around this locale. Be that as it may… there this thing is. Note that it is not at all required to do any enhancing to the original photo in order to see our green friend. Nope, it stands right out… in a pretty deep shadow no less. As if it’s actually self-luminous. High strangeness, indeed.
An unknown form of living thing is a bit more likely than some sort of alien device doing who knows what…
For the image here, I started with a version with enhanced gamma, although I don’t remember where I got it. (I have such a backlog of these things to write about… sheesh.). I elevated the brightness and contrast by 30 each to get the lighting up to snuff and approach daylight a bit. [No pixels were harmed in the making of this picture.]
Nice purple mineral it’s sitting on, by the way. Food, maybe? Like the NY Lottery ads say, “Hey, you never know.” Life out there doesn’t necessarily have to follow our dogma. If you said 50 years ago that there were creatures on Earth that live 2 miles down and eat rocks, you know what would’ve happened, right? Right.
It would be so sad if the anomaly is a film defect, but of course it could be, can’t leave that out no matter how doubtful the scenario, the film being custom made expressly for the lunar program. Nothing remotely like it has appeared before or since.
So… being the romantic nut that I am, I vote for… High Strangeness.
Update 5/20/09: added image below. For this version, only brightness was applied to the original hi-res image as released to the public. This is to better show you the very interesting colors at the tip of this object and what may well be projections in the tip area.
And that ended the post.
I wanted to add the original photo from the mission and I wanted to use the latest Photoshop Camera Raw plug in to enhance it again, just to see. This plug in adjusts pixel levels to increase or decrease the exposure and adjust the highlights, shadows, contrast and such. What is there is there, what is not is not. Do note that the anomaly is actually visible in the raw, unaltered image in the original photograph.
Original, untouched. 300dpi. (Thanks NASA!)
Camera Raw to see in that hole.
My crop and I increased dpi to 1200.
And how about them apples?
What, I still ask, in the name of God is that?
Ponder it, eh?
I thought I might do an enhancement of the old Mothman bridge shot, as I was wicked bored the other night… and as you can see, it still looks like not much of anything.
Except maybe a Mothman. Ha! Hahahahahaha!
But folks dig it, (including me), so, hey.
It still fires up the imagination, though. Mine, anyway.
But it’s the age old problem… not enough film grains. (Pixels, these days.)

Hey, bigfoots been long overdue. Or, Neanderthal, if you will, but she mentions one from the states and those cousins never made it over here as far as I know.
Anyway, I like Ms Hatswell, she does great work and told me off once for wanting to die.
Cryptozoology News, though, published that hoax story the other day, so, you know.
As always, YMMV.
A man in northern Michigan released a photograph of an alleged Bigfoot creature.
The man, who goes by the name of Jack, claims he was on a fishing trip when he came upon the seemingly bipedal animal, which he initially though to be a bear.
“It was about six feet tall and had a human-like figure,” he told Bigfoot Evidence earlier this week, not specifying when the encounter happened. “It had a high-pitch growl. We made eye contact and we both froze in our tracks.”
The shadowy figure then reportedly ran off into the woods.
“I went back later on and camped there, just to see if I got lucky and get more pictures,” he said. But he turned out empty handed.
Jack believes it was a juvenile Bigfoot, mainly because of its relatively short height.
It is not clear why the eyewitness didn’t take a video instead of a series of photographs.
Last month, another man in Michigan said he had encountered a similar creature in 2017. He claimed the biped had a four-legged “pet” with him.
article from Cryptozoolgy News – Michigan Fisherman Takes ‘Bigfoot’ Picture
via the ATS post Michigan Bigfoot?
Very cool. But wait!
Just jumping in with my first thought on seeing the pic. Close up of a black squirrel surprised and on alert while eating a pinecone. Obviously a bad pic where lens focused detail on the pine branches…so photographer decided to have fun with this.
Now, will read the rest of the Thread and see what everyone posting sees.
Edit add: sticking with my theory of a squirrel on a branch pic. Thus why the critter is mostly shaded in the canopy of the pine tree. It would be more highlighted if on the ground, standing 6 feet tall among the more decidious trees. Besides, compare the size of the maple leaves to those behind the subject. The subject is 6-8 inches tall at the most. This story and pic is an obvious hoax/prank.
edit on 10 1 2018 by CynConcepts – add: zoom into the upper mid right and you can see a power line running through the pic. This is someone’s backyard.
This witness claimed he was out fishing during his encounter. But the Colorado Blue Spruce branches in the foreground of his “big foot” picture gives me pause. I’ve never seen blue spruce growing around a river or other body of water when out fishing, just in people’s yards. It make the picture look like he’s taking it through a hedge row into his neighbor’s yard. Plus that big foot is just a black figure on a bright background, no details. My impression? It’s a fake.
Oh, for God’s sake. I am so tired of hoaxes. It’s just wrong.
Maybe if hoaxers start to be imprisoned… or lynched!
Mysterious Purple Orb | Nautilus Live
Published on Jul 25, 2016
During our initial observations in NOAA Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary, a snail-like foot and no visible shell suggested the sphere might be a pleurobranch sea slug. Upon more well-rounded review by our research partners at Harvard University Museum of Comparative Zoology, it is now thought the orb belongs to another distantly related group of snails–the velutinids. Modern techniques, including microCT scanning and RNA sequencing, are being used to describe this very likely new species of velutinid.

This is actually a pretty nice video. Only real anomalies, nicely presented with no sensationalist fanfare.
Just as it should be.
I do feel — strongly — that many of the things we have seen up there are indeed fossils.
I have no truck with NASA, though, unlike many. Science requires them to be sure, they cannot “youtube” us, for that would ruin everything. That said I have been rather upset with them in the past, when they had some sort of agenda, probably forced upon them by libular slimeworms.
They’ve been doing great since that all ended.

The Flashlight Frog is a cryptid purported to live in Cameroon. Ranging from three to six inches long, these amphibians have a horn-like protrusion on the end of their nose that emits a red light. They use this to attract insects. They catch them with a yellow, spiked tongue that is coated in a deadly saliva.
The Flashlight Frog was first mentioned by legendary cryptozoologist Karl Shuker in his 1997 book From Flying Toads to Snakes with Wings.
Quick Cryptid Snippet: Flashlight Frog
In June of 1997, naturalist and cryptozoologist, Jonathan Downes was visiting an animal fair at Newton Abbot in Devon, England. While there, he came across a cage of exotic tree frogs from Cameroon, West Africa. The exotic frog seller noted that the frogs were able to make their nose glow in darkness in order to attract prey. The vendor was selling the frogs for $38 per frog. Unable to purchase a specimen, Downes took the information to local herpetological scientists (herpetology: branch of zoology that studies amphibians) where he was told that science recognizes no frog species that are able to (or known to) produce a bioluminescent light.
The Flashlight Frog is described as being around 2-inches long with green skin uniformly covering its body and large pale eyes set widely upon its head. It is noted as having a slightly raised bump or “horn” at the end of its nose that is slightly blue in color. This is the area that is able to light up or glow via bioluminescence (the production and emission of light by a living organism). At night, it lights up its nose to attract flying insects and once close enough, the frog strikes with a long pale yellow tongue.

I am proud to call both Karl and Jonathan my friends. They are both so kind and truly wonderful people. In my hiding from the world angst, however, I will admit that condition caused an unawareness of Jonathan’s discovery… and Karl’s reportage… forgive me, gentlemen, I know not what I do. I am so… nevermind. 🙁
This thing is cool. Bioluminessence in itself is cool… and one wonders in awe at how Mother Nature endows some with it and the requisite skills to use it for survival.
Mother knows best. And she cares not for our rules. Don’t forget it. It is something we can only hope to someday come to grips with.
The Stymphalanian birds are a group of man-eating birds from Greek mythology. They are said to be the size of cranes, looking like ibises but with more powerful beaks. They will attack any who hunt them, killing them with their beaks. They can pierce any iron or bronze armour, but will catch their beaks in armour made of thick cork.
The birds were the pets of Artemis, but fled to Arcadia from a pack of wolves. They bred quickly and overwhelmed the townspeople. For his sixth labour, Heracles hunted and killed the birds with arrows dipped in the blood of the Lernaean Hydra.
Looks mighty intimidating… that beak! Yeesh. One of them coming after you would be enough… imagine if there were a bunch! Ooh Lordy.
Good thing we don’t see many of them these days. Good job, Hercles! We thank you.
In North American folklore, the Roperite is a fearsome critter. It has leathery skin and a long, rope-like beak which it uses to ensnare its prey. Unlike almost all other fearsome critters, the Roperite lives in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountain range, as opposed to the northern woods.
The Roperite is said to be incredibly fast, with no living animal able to outrun it. Its skin is also impervious to thorns, allowing it to move easily though the chaparral.
Hey, if I go out there, maybe I could get myself eaten by one of these. Worth a shot, I guess, but this is another one I’ve not heard even a peep about.
I will need to investigate more into possible locations and see if I can pull it off.
The Turtle Bottoms Monster is an anteater-like creature found living along the Saline River Watershed in Harrisburg Illinois. The Turtle Bottoms Monster is described as an anteater and an ape hybrid it has a long anteater-like snout and in some reports it has four legs. According to some people the Turtle Bottoms Monster is a hybrid animal released into the wild by the Federal Government. The Turtle Bottoms Monster is not afraid of people and even approached people on the local make-out point in 1960 and even spawned a few searches for the creature but no evidence of the Turtle Bottoms Monster was ever found.
Another anecdotal animal. But that’s alright. We shall add it to the menagerie of mystery. 1960 was a long time ago these days. Never heard of it before. That’s not an uncommon thing, though.
I hope they get a whole mess of ’em cloggin’ up Harrisburg’s doin’s. That’d be perfect.
Nice colors, eh.
The Ucu is a Chilean Sasquatch, typically spotted in the Andean foothills. It is described as being 5-7 feet tall with thick hair and huge limbs and as making a unique sound – “uhu, uhu, uhu.” One proposed explanation for sightings of the ucu is that they are actually spectacled bears.
“Spectacled bears.” LOL ROFL Mao! These “experts“ kill me. They are experts in avoiding any thought, imagination, investigation or exploration of any kind at any cost.
We should remove them from the gene pool.

Lusca is a fascinating cryptid. It it said to dwell in the blue holes of the Bahamas. Still and tranquil pools of blue but home to the most sinister of cryptids, Lusca. Some say Lusca is part shark-part octopus.
Some eye-witnesses say Lusca is around 200ft in length. Although there have been few survivors.
The Island of Andros in the Bahamas is home to many of these blue holes and curious people have tested out a theory that they all connect to each other deep under the sea by using dyes. This means that Lusca may not be in one hole at one time, it can travel.
For me this is one of the most terrifying of cryptids, able the strike from great depths and in complete silence, you never really know when Lusca may be coming for you.
i am sad that I was near the area twice in the past but never had an opportunity to be ingested by a Lusca. I doubt I will ever get down there again, now that my health and finances are failing fast. Sigh.
Cryptid of the Day: Maricoxi
Description: Before Percy Fawcett disappeared in the South American jungles in the 1920′s, he claimed to have stumbled upon a tribe of ape-like people which he called the Maricoxi. Since there are no ape species in the Americas, many have dismissed this sighting as Fawcett’s racist interpretation of the natives.
This description has pissed me off.
Disparaging my hero Percy Fawcett. Who are these putrid ‘dismissers’… bring me their heads, damn it. Mooks, all of them. Bastards, too. An “interpretation of the natives,” indeed… that is the biggest load of horseshit I’ve heard in ages.
There certainly are apes in the Americas … Bigfoot? Huh? What?
If Fawcett said these creatures are there — then they are there. Period. Or were in the 20s. And they probably still are there.
I’m fuming. Need to chill.
The Delgeth is a flesh-eating monster from Navajo mythology. One of the anaye, or alien spirits, it resembles an antelope or elk. It is sometimes said to have no head, but a huge maw filled with razor-sharp teeth.
The legend says that the heroic Nayanezgani slew the beast with the assistance of some of the land’s native animals.
A very strange legend to be sure.
Improbable, to say the least, but keep in mind that outside of our arrogance we basically know diiddly squat about nearly everything… so… yeah.
The Lukwata is a mosasaur-like creature said to be living in rivers and swamps in Uganda. the Lukwata is said to be a living mosasaur with a long snout filled with sharp teeth and a large body with large paddle-like flippers. The Lukwata is said to have magical powers and was worshiped and revered by the people in Uganda. The Lukwata mostly eats fish but is known to attack anything that gets too close to the water’s edge.
What a nice critter!
Aim (aka Aym or Haborym) is a Great Duke of Hell, very strong, and rules over twenty-six legions of demons. He sets cities, castles and great places on fire, makes men witty in all ways, and gives true answers concerning private matters.
He is depicted as a man with three heads, one of a serpent, the second of a man (to some authors with two stars on his forehead), and the third of a cat, although some say of a calf, riding a viper, and carrying in his hand a lit firebrand with which he sets the requested things on fire.
I like Haborym better, personally. Seriously.
Keeps good company, I see.
But he looks like a nasty sort of creature. Even if he didn’t light everything on fire.
The Lizard Man of Scape Ore Swamp is a cryptid spotted in South Carolina. It is commonly described as approximately 7 feet tall with scaly green skin, red eyes, and webbed hands with three fingers.
The most famous sighting of the Lizard Man was in 1988; a seventeen-year-old boy named Christopher Davis was driving home from work when he stopped to change a tire. He heard a noise and saw the creature running toward him, and as he started to drive away, it jumped on his car. The side-view mirror was damaged and there were scratch marks on the roof. A couple experienced a similar event in 2008.
Later in the summer of 1988, a man claimed to have shot the Lizard Man; however, he quickly retracted his story.
Additionally, casts of alleged Lizard Man footprints were made, but they were dismissed after being pronounced unclassifiable.
This is the fella that Lyle Blackburn is always on about. He was/is, after all, the lead (or only?) researcher on the case.
If you listen to Lyle tell the story, as a bonus, you’ll learn, the true meaning and history of the name of that swamp.
Is it real? Who knows? But… as always… why not?
All is possible in the eyes of Tîmiñiukūlüskárpe.
The Grassman (also known as the Ohio Grassman or the Minerva Monster) is a large bipedal creature, similar in description to Bigfoot, that has been spotted in Ohio. The creatures get their name from their tendency to build shelters out of grass.
Sightings date back to the 1700s, but the most reliable reports occurred in Minerva, Ohio in 1978: the Clayton family encountered multiple creatures on their property, and attributed the death of their German Shepherd to a Grassman attack.
Possible handprints have been found, and a 16″ hair was analyzed by Ohio State University; however, the results were inconclusive.
No…. Srsly, this thing is no joke.
My dad and uncle were out fishing on a boat and they were warned by an old war vet my uncle was friends with not to go out there without a gun. They took one but just disregarded it as him being a crazy old man.
They fished for a few hours before they heard trees breaking. TREES, not twigs. One was so thick and tall it was humanly impossible for anyone to break it. Then they had rocks being thrown at their boat. My dad said one was so big they thought it would damage the boat.
They shined their lights, yelled at the person they thought was doing it, even threatened they were armed and they continued having rocks thrown at them. They ultimately decided to get out of there.
They went back the next day, found a huge bigfoot print that my uncle had casted. They sent it to Ohio state university and they said it had lines and prints on the soles and they honestly couldn’t debunk it as a hoax.
My dad and uncle have never went back since then. These are two conservative woodsmen that have spent their entire lives outdoors fishing or racoon hunting etc late at night and they have never experienced anything like that in their entire lives.
The folks I know from Ohio, )not including members of the Eastern Ohio Bigfoot Research group and related gatherings), have not heard of this critter. And one of those folks is interested in paranormal stuff right from childhood. It all depends on what you run into in your day to day life, I suppose.
I’ve not paid attention to this furry fella so I don’t know if encounters are falling off or rising or what, so, again, it will all depend on the local environment.
I hope someone gets a better picture than this one… I mean, really. Having said that, I have personally experienced fantastic things and I can attest to the near certainty that snapping a pic will not be high on your list of priorities at that moment. Assuming that it was unexpected… and dang if they’re not nearly all unexpected.
Still, it can happen the other way, too.
Let’s hope for a goodun,’ eh.
As a child addicted to sci fi movies (along with the unexplained) I always wondered if critters and other things really could come back from being in a deep freeze or other seemingly impossible situations.
Well, we saw a while back that success was enjoyed in unfreezing some plants, flowers, I think, but I’m not sure of the specifics. Sigh.
And of course there are the perfectly preserved remains of everything, everywhere in the permafrost, even to the undigested stomach contents. Ooh God, I wish my memory didn’t have such trouble… I heard recently that the inventor of our frozen food process , the head of Birdseye, had calculated some fantastically short time for mammoth freezing of hours so you know something absolutely unimaginable happened…
But getting back on track, now we have this! Scientists from several Russian schools and our own Princeton University have warmed and woken nematode worms from back in the days of the mammoths. Don’t worry, nematodes are super tiny and are still around today.
Nematodes moving and eating again for the first time since the Pleistocene age in major scientific breakthrough, say experts.
Worms frozen in permafrost for up to 42,000 years come back to life
By The Siberian Times reporter
26 July 2018
Nematodes moving and eating again for the first time since the Pleistocene age in major scientific breakthrough, say experts.
Awake after 42,000 years… Picture: The Siberian Times
The roundworms from two areas of Siberia came back to life in Petri dishes, says a new scientific study.
‘We have obtained the first data demonstrating the capability of multicellular organisms for longterm cryobiosis in permafrost deposits of the Arctic,’ states a report from Russian…
The research was conducted by teams from multiple Russian institutions as well as Princeton University in New Jersey.
Interesting discussion over here, as well.
We live in such fascinating times…
This is a clip from a video that was released by the Thylacine Awareness Group of Australia. It was filmed in 2008. It is thought to feature a Thylacine – an animal thought extinct. Neil Walters, the founder of the TAGA, believes that the animal in the film could either be a Thylacine or a sub-species. Walters explained, “It’s got an incredibly thick neck and it’s very stocky in its build. And it also has that very long, stiff tail that looks like an extension of the back bone essentially, it doesn’t really move, it certainly doesn’t sway side to side like a dog”. Foxes with mange are often misidentified by witnesses as Thylacine. The woman that filmed the video, however, claimed that this creature ambled in a way that was in no way like the way a fox would run.
I have long held the opinion that the Tassie Tiger is still with us. There is too much evidence for me to dismiss it.
This is one of the very few photographs that were taken of the Pink-Headed Duck. The above photo was taken by David Seth-Smith in 1926. This bird is not officially declared extinct but instead it is listed as critically endangered. The last time anyone saw a Pink-Headed Duck in the wild was in 1949 in its native habitat of India but they used to live in India, Myanmar and Bangladesh. There are stories of a flock of 50 of these ducks hiding in Myanmar but they have still not been scientifically documented. There are constant sightings of this species nevertheless and an expedition as recent as 2017 in search of it.
Ahh, to be pink-headed. It must be marvelous.
I hope they’re still around.
The Lake Murray Monster of Papua New Guinea
Lake Murray is the largest lake in Papua New Guinea (PNG), covering an area of about 700 sq. miles (though it shrinks and expands dramatically with the dry and rainy seasons). The lake’s serpentine shoreline creates many mysterious inlets and remote swampy coves. About 5,000 indigenous peoples inhabit this lake region in western PNG. Tribal villages dot the many small islands and lake shoreline, sporting houses on stilts and featuring dugout canoes as the main means of transportation.
A cryptid known as “Murray” reportedly lives in the swamps on the edges of the lake. This creature has been described as resembling a theropod dinosaur. A national PNG newspaper presented the following report: “On December 11, 1999, villagers travelling in a canoe reported seeing the creature wading in shallow water near Boboa. The following day, a Seventh Day Adventist pastor [Joseph Yup] and a church elder say they saw the animal not far from the first sighting. The creature was described as having a body ‘as long as a dump truck’ and nearly two metres wide, with a long neck and a long slender tail. It was walking on two hind legs ‘as thick as coconut palm tree trunks’, and had two smaller forelegs. The head was similar in shape to a cow’s head, with large eyes and ‘sharp teeth as long as fingers.’ The skin was likened to that of a crocodile, and the creature had ‘largish triangular scoops on the back.’”
I, for one, welcome our new theropod Overlords.
The Bagwajiwinini – also known as the “little people of Minnesota,” or as Pukwudgies – are small, humanoid creatures that are a part of Ojibwa legend. They are 2-3′ tall with green skin.
They have been described as dangerous to humans due to the possibility of abduction. A boy was allegedly kidnapped by the Bagwajiwinini on a hunting trip with his father – who found him trapped in the roots of a tree – and some believe that the 2007 disappearance and subsequent death of hiker Kory Kelly are related to the Bagwajiwinini.
I have heard tales of them in Pennsylvania, where they are reported to steal and throw apples at picnickers while staying hidden and also in Massachusetts.
I had not heard any warnings of danger associated with these creatures, before, though, so do beware.
The Huallepen is a strange, water-dwelling creature from Chilean mythology. It has the body of a sheep and the head of a calf, with short front legs, twisted feet, and the back end of a seal.
Huallepen live in shallow pools, roaming onto the land to mate with herd animals. This will typically result in deformed offspring. It is said that if a pregnant woman comes near a Huallepen, her child will be born with a muzzle and twisted legs.
Holy moly — Ladies — keep your distance!
The Lambton Worm is a snake-like dragon found in The River Wear in England in the UK. The Lambton Worm is described as a large snake-like dragon with a long snake-like body and a dragon-like head. The Lambton Worm was venomous and it was known to attack and devour livestock and it wrapped its body around the hills and its marks that it left can still be seen to this day. The Worm was eventually killed by John Lambton however when it was killed it released a curse that once the Lambton Worm was killed John Lambton had to kill the first living thing he saw in order to stop the curse from happening which was his son. However he could not kill his son so this curse was set and him and his descendants all died premature untimely deaths. There is a song about the Lambton Worm which is sung around England.
Major PentaProps™ to the venerable John Lambton for not killing his son! Bravo, Sir.
Wait… “Wrapped its body around the hills…” Really? Madonne. Talk about yuge. I, for one, would love to see photos of the alleged marks that it left.
The Minhocão is a South American cryptid, believed now to be extinct. The last sighting was over 130 years ago.
The creature was believed to be a burrowing animal, and its body was reported to measure as long as 100 feet with a 10 foot diameter. According to reports, the creature has scaly black skin, a pig snout, an obvious mouth, and tentacles on its head.
Some theories about the Minhocão include that it is a giant caceilian, or a surviving glyptodont.
How cool is this thing?
I am actually sad to learn that they appear to be extinct, but, nothing lasts forever. 130 years is a mighty long time to have not seen one and obviously a bird or a monkey might go unnoticed for that long but this fellas mighty big, even if it does, or did, spend most of it’s time underground.
Perhaps there is a hidden enclave somewhere where they might still linger… Could happen. There is a lot of room on this earth.
This is a photograph of Voirrey Irving and her dog Mona, the woman who was well known for talking to Gef the Mongoose. Voirrey was 12 when Gef began speaking in her farmhouse on Isle of Man in September of 1931. Many people believe that Voirrey was behind the whole thing, and she was using ventriloquism to make it seem like there was an unseen talking Mongoose on the property.
I first heard of Gef many moons ago when my friend Susan Swiatek gave a lecture about the mysteriously vcal critter to our mutual group at an International Fortean Organization conference. Sue’s a MUFON exec and cryptozoology is a hobby of hers. I thought it was a pretty cool tale but didn’t really think it was truly true… but, hey, you never know, you know? We do know that there are shapeshifters, so… yeah.
Gef the Talking Mongoose is a mongoose-like creature found on Isle of Man. Gef is described as a small mongoose-like creature with yellow fur, a bushy tail, and stripes. Sounds like a normal mongoose right?
Well yeah except for the fact that Gef could talk. Gef was first reported in the village of Dalby by the Irving family. Gef introduced himself as Gef the Mongoose who was born in New Delhi India in 1852. Gef told the Irvings that he was a clever mongoose and a ghost or a spirit in the form of a mongoose. Gef once said, “I am a freak. I have hands and I have feet, and if you saw me you’d faint, you’d be petrified, mummified, turned into stone or a pillar of salt!“
Gef lived with Irvings for sometime waking people up if they overslept and attacking any mice that he could get. Word got out and the people of the village were scared and excited some even said to have seen or heard Gef. A few psychics went to go visit the Irving’s house after they moved after the dad died since they believed the house was haunted and they didn’t find anything not even any sign of Gef. Skeptics believe that Gef was a puppet or a split-personality of the father but believers say he was a ghost or a poltergeist or a ghost or even a real talking mongoose.
I don’t know… who does… as a Fortean, I just take it at face value, file it under “Unlikely af” and dig it for the entertainment. He certainly was entertaining, and hey, the lil guy still is if you believe the twitter account Gef the Mongoose @gefbot is real. Hahaha!
What a cutie!
Oh my goodness…this adorable, magical creature! #canteven. By @naoto_hattori.
Very cool… and that’s my final verdict.
