More on Cryptid U.S.

A while ago, I wrote a post about a book I am working on called Cryptid U.S. That post also made its way over to Bigfoot Evidence. This post will be about the same topic, Cryptid U.S., but with an update.

Since writing that post, I have finished another chapter in the book. So far, I have the ones about Bigfoot, Lake monsters, and flying things done. I am currently working on the chapter about werewolves, and after that will be everything else that doesn't really fit in a category and creatures seen all over the USA, even though they aren't supposed to live here, like kangaroos.

Cryptozoologist Scott Norman(March 15, 1964-February 29, 2008) saw a living pterosaur on the night between July 18 and 19, 2007. He saw a huge creature fly over a shed, somewhere in the United States. He saw it between 1:30 and 2:30 a.m.. This is his encounter:

“I was sitting in a chair, when this animal came flying over the shed and into the field and I almost lost it. The animal I saw had a 8 to 10 foot wingspan, the wings were batlike, and the inside had a wavy type of look. The body was 5-6 feet in length, the neck was 1-2 feet, the head was about 4 feet long. There was a crest on the head about 2 feet in length, like that of a pteranodon. I don’t know how else to describe it.

Our contact had a sighting similar to that three years ago in the daylight. He saw a long tail, I did not see one, and all the Pteranodon
pictures I’ve seen show a short stubby tail. The animal I saw was stockier compared to pterosaur drawings I’ve seen.

I only saw the silhouette of the animal and didn’t get to see any real details. It was only 20 feet away from me, our contact said the shed was 18 feet high, and it was flying probably 2 feet above that. The animal was gliding and made no sound. It headed towards a nearby pasture. I shone my flashlight in that direction, but did not see the animal, so it must have kept flying.”

Two people driving to West Virginia from Marietta, Ohio, on December 11, 2003, saw a strange creature off the side of the highway, looking away from them. They said the animal looked “Like a cross between a deer and a bear.” It stood about six and a half feet tall and had very long, extremely thin legs that almost looked unstable holding up its huge body. Its torso, neck and head were covered in long black fur, but the legs were not. The witnesses could not see its feet because it was standing in two inch tall grass. The creature turned and looked at them before they drove off. It had large, red eyes and a muzzle/snout that was long and slender, with a nose almost like a cat’s. They didn’t see any ears.(Source: Joedy Cook. HC addendum source, sightings.)

The Burrunjor - A Present-Day Australian Dinosaur?

Australia is said to be home to a variety of cryptid creatures, from the aquatic Bunyip, the man-like Yowies and Wakkis, and the thylacine. There is another, however, that could be considered stranger than all the others. Why? Because its said to be something that should have gone extinct 65 million years ago!

The creature in question is called the Burrunjor, and is said to be a surviving dinosaur. Now, before you think that there is no possible way the Burrunjor could be real, remember that there are sightings and stories of other dinosaur-like creatures from around the world - for example, the mokele-mbembe, kongamato, and others in Africa, "Mounatin Boomers" in the U.S., the Partridge Creek Monster, and more.

Over the years there have been many sightings and stories of the Burrunjor in Australia, including this one from Rex and Heather Gilroy from the 1970s:

"In 1978, a Northern Territory bushman and explorer, Bryan Clark, related a story of his own that had taken pl…

Some Thoughts on Alaska Monsters: Bigfoot Edition

So far, two episodes of Alaska Monsters: Bigfoot Edition have aired. Here are some of my thoughts on the show.

First off, let's start with the team, the Midnight Sons. There are a few new members on the team this season. The old leader, Little Bear, is gone, and now Crusty (the guy with the bear claw in his beard) is leader of the team. Other members are: Dudley (new guy), the team "forensic expert," Todd, the "trap engineer," Bulldog (new guy), the "survival expert," Rhett, the "greenhorn" (rookie), and of course Face, the "veteran tracker."

Compared to the AIMS Team of Mountain Monsters, Crusty is Trapper, Todd is Willy, Rhett is Buck, Bulldog would probably be Huckleberry, Dudley would probably be Jeff, and Face would be Wild Bill.

I haven't seen the first episode, "Bigfoot of the Arctic Circle: Siberian Giant," but I did watch episode two, "Bigfoot of Denali: Wind Walker" last Saturday. I actually though…

Mountain Monsters - Coming Back in 2018?

Destination America's Mountain Monsters was a huge hit when it premiered in 2013. It's had five seasons through last year.

Season 3 started a "Bigfoot Edition" and season 4 introduced a "rogue team." Last season focused entirely on this "rogue team" and ended with really no conclusion.

Over the past 2 Saturdays, some old season 2 episodes of Mountain Monsters have been playing in the evenings. Could this be a sign that the show might be back for another season this year, or does it have no meaning at all?

If the show does come back, where can they go? Last season made absolutely no sense at all and the whole thing was pretty stupid. If it does come back, I think they should go back to just monster hunting like they did in the first two seasons. Once they went to just "Bigfoot Edition" things went downhill quick.
