Number 10. Giant Trilobite. No, this is not the Indominus Rex from Jurassic World, the I-Rex was actually a prehistoric trilobite species… At more than 60 cm in length, the ‘Isotelus rex’ was the largest species of trilobite ever known – scavenging the ocean floor during the Paleozoic Era 500 million years ago… A specimen of Isotelus rex, from Churchill, Manitoba, is the largest complete trilobite ever found. It measured 72 cm in length and 40 cm in width… Trilobites were simple and adaptable organisms, managing to survive for 300 million years. Number 9. Giant Shrimp. Anomalocaris canadensis – say that three times fast – looked like a blend of giant squid and shrimp… It was around a meter long with a mouth full of razor-sharp teeth. Fossils found in China show that it was a massive undersea arthropod that lived 500 million years ago… It propelled itself through the water by undulating the flexible lobes on the sides of its body. Each side acted as a single ‘fin’, maximising swimming efficiency… Its powerful mandibles were used to catch large prey. It ate using its ‘serrated cigar cutter’ teeth…

O.o I enjoyed this! If you dig bugs, you will, too.

Andrewsarchus—the World’s Largest Predatory Mammal

by Bob Strauss
Updated September 25, 2018

Andrewsarchus is one of the world’s most tantalizing prehistoric animals: its three-foot-long, toothstudded skull indicates that it was a giant predator, but the fact is that we have no idea what the rest of this mammal’s body looked like.

Andrewsarchus Is Known by a Single Skull

as

All we know about Andrewsarchus amounts to a single, three-foot-long, vaguely wolf-shaped skull, discovered in Mongolia in 1923. While the skull clearly belongs to some type of mammal—there are obvious diagnostic markers by which paleontologists can distinguish between reptilian and mammalian bones—the lack of an accompanying skeleton has resulted in nearly a century of confusion, and debate, about what type of animal Andrewsarchus really was.

The Fossil of Andrewsarchus Was Discovered by Roy Chapman Andrews (My Hero!)

rca

During the 1920’s, the swashbuckling paleontologist Roy Chapman Andrews, sponsored by the American Museum of Natural History in New York, embarked on a series of well-publicized fossil-hunting expeditions to central Asia (then, as it still is now, one of the most remote regions on earth). After its discovery, Andrewsarchus (“Andrews’ ruler”) was named in his honor, though it’s unclear whether Andrews bestowed this name himself or left the task to other members of his team.

Wonderful, wonderful!

I like this guy and his vids. I am not aware, however, of any diving going on in Lake Vostok, as it’s a couple miles down and the hole is just big enough for instruments. So… that one I don’t subscribe to at all. Russians have been bullshitting the unexplained since I was in my twenties, at least, if not more. The other ones though… could be fake news… there was a ton of that in those times… but could also be quite real, so I can get behind those. Hey 14 out of 15 is pretty good, eh?

The first mention of the Loch Ness monster creature is from the story of the life St. Columba in 565 AD. The saint rescued a man from the monster and banished it.

— bigfootin, (not so scholarly a site, I’m afraid.).

This is true… it was reported that way, but, we wonder, just what the man saw and how exactly he “banished” it. We also wonder whether it actually happened, of course… who knows if it did, but something like it did, I’d bet.

The critter isn’t one of my top concerns these days. There once was a time though.

Does Megalodon Still Exist?

Ben G Thomas
Published on Jul 29, 2018

Megalodon, the giant predatory fish of nightmares, was undoubtedly a magnificently terrifying creature. It’s also been the target of many claims that suggest it could still be alive today, and a lot of people on the internet seem to be convinced that this is the case. Therefore, here I’ll be reviewing the arguments that have been made in favour of Megalodon’s late-survival, and we’ll see if it is indeed possible that the monster shark lives.

The Cretaceous-Paleogene extinction event is the most famous case of mass destruction because it was greatly popularized by mankind’s vested interest in dinosaurs. While the scientific consensus is that no dinosaur survived to our times, there are multiple cryptid sightings that would suggest at least some of them might still be around.

Is St. George fighting a plesiosaur-inspired dragon in this 1678 illustration from Mundus Subterraneus? Abel (1939, also the source of this image) thought so, noting the shift towards plesiosaur-like proportions and anatomy compared to more conventional European dragon depictions of the time.

The giants and plesio-dragons of Mundus Subterraneus

Athanasius Kircher’s 1678 German textbook Mundus Subterraneus– an early thesis on geography, biology, mineralogy and geology – contains several illustrations of animals which may have been informed by fossils. They include many types of giant human, which were said to be social, cave-dwelling species based on the bones of large animals found in caves – almost certainly remnants of Pleistocene mammals. Kircher also wrote about several types of dragon, many of which were of period-typical, worm-like form, but Abel (1939) noted one unusual dragon illustration that may have been influenced by a real giant reptile: a plesiosaur.

The illustration is plesiosaur-like in many respects, with a barrel-like body, small head, long and slender neck, a true tail, and curiously small ‘paddle-like’ wings instead of broad, membranous wings typical of dragon depictions. It’s not a perfect plesiosaur depiction by any means – it also has ears, a beak, and four legs – but Abel (1939) considered this reinvention of dragon form so dramatic that it could represent the arrival of a new source of inspiration for dragon anatomy, of which plesiosaurs are a possible contender. Marine reptiles, including plesiosaurs, were almost certainly uncovered during quarrying work in the historic Swabia region (now southern Germany) as rocks we now call the Posidonia Shale were exploited to build growing settlements. The Posidonia Shale is a site of exceptional preservation with abundant invertebrate fossils and rarer, but often complete and articulated, marine reptile skeletons. Posidonia quarrying dates back to at least the 16th century and, given that the quarrying was executed by hand, 17th century quarrymen would have seen fossils of many kinds, almost certainly including some well preserved plesiosaur remains. Had these discoveries caused a stir among local learned individuals, as well a giant reptile entombed in stone might have, it’s not inconceivable to think they could have been identified as dragons, and ultimately influenced Mundus Subterraneus.

As with our discussion of cyclops art, these details are only circumstantial evidence and they do not prove beyond doubt that plesiosaurs were referenced in Kircher’s dragon art. But I find this case a little more compelling because our records of the early modern period are better, so the correlation between historic events is tighter and the contrast to other dragon illustrations more obvious. Moreover, whereas ancient cyclops art doesn’t really look like the fossils said to inspire it, I can see some obvious plesiosaur-like details in Kircher’s illustration. It’s difficult to be certain about the relevance of plesiosaurs fossils to the image but, for me, this is a possible, if unconfirmed, piece of proto-palaeoart.

Please read the rest of this wonderful piece by Mark Witton at Unicorns, dragons, monsters and giants: palaeoart before palaeontology.

Sweet! Extra sweet!

Especially as I have been enamored of a recent and quite scholarly thread on ATS called Evidence for the Co-Existence of Humans and Dinosaurs. If your interest is peaked you should have a read of that, too. It’s good! Up at 11 pages now and it’s got 108 flags. Just wonderful! You will see that the premise is exceptionally solid and you will know why, too.

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.

It’s true…

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 40,00027,000 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…

This clip from a film I’ve not seen looks pretty accurate, so, um, yeah.

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.

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.

Just perfect.

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.

Here goes.

1

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.

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.)

Sigh.

New ‘Neanderthal’ Sighting in Finland. Cryptozoology News Reports New Bigfoot Account.

Deborah Hatswell BRITISH BIGFOOT REPORTS
Published on Mar 1, 2018

[email protected] one of the leading Cryptozoology blogs today reported a new account of a Bigfoot Finland.  — A man in eastern Finland says he saw two hairy Neanderthal-looking humanoids. Raautavaara resident Iisakki Mieto told Cryptozoology News he was chopping firewood next to his house when he came upon the two beings on Dec. 21, 2017.

hoax

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!

Uh Oh!

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.

— CynConcepts

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.

— MichiganSwampBuck

Oh, for God’s sake. I am so tired of hoaxes. It’s just wrong.

Maybe if hoaxers start to be imprisoned… or lynched!

Sigh…

Mysterious Purple Orb | Nautilus Live

EVNautilus
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.

E/V Nautilus is exploring the ocean studying biology, geology, archeology, and more. Watch http://www.nautiluslive.org for live video from the ocean floor.

NASA has found life on Mars they just won’t confirm it until they can return a sample to Earth. pds-imaging.jpl.nasa.gov/data… mars.jpl.nasa.gov/msl-raw-ima…

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.

Exciting times lie ahead!

This tiny blur is supposed to be the notorious Lizard Man of Scape Ore Swamp. near Bishopville, South Carolina. Well, maybe it is, but at this level of photo quality, it could be just about anything. Frustrating. Not to mention it’s like 2.5 seconds.

Bipedal dinosaurs were proposed by paleontologists to have possibly evolved a good long while ago and I have no reservations with that work. Whether they could hang on in these times is another matter, but I dont see why not.

The proposed critter, I must say, was a heckuva lot more graceful and elegant than the thingie presented below:

It might have, that is in fact quite plausible, but, there were a lot of cool stories that were written up by newspapers to increase sales. Much like today, but back then, unlike today, they were mostly minus any evil agendas.

So dig it. This fellow is new to me and he’s a pretty good storyteller.

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.

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.

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.

LUSCA

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.
