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.
