Joedy Cook's "Mothman Casebook" Reviewed!

Joedy Cook, cryptid researcher from Cincinnati, Ohio, has a new book out called Mothman Casebook. I got the book recently and this is my review.

I enjoyed this book quite a lot, not just because I know the guy who wrote it, but because its a great book. Most of the book is sightings of Mothman or Mothman-like creatures in various states, including Ohio, West Virginia, Texan, Washington, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Florida, California, Wisconsin, New York, New Jersey, Alabama, and more.

All in all, I'd give this book 5/5 stars!

A WEIRD MOTHMAN OCCURRENCE

At the end of August, we went to the Mothman Museum in Point Pleasant, West Virginia. I remember saying how odd I thought it was that there are relatively few Mothman books out there compared to other well known cryptids, like Bigfoot. Just the next day I found this book. I thought it was a big strange… maybe Mothman had something to do with it!

Description from the back cover of Mothman Casebook:


"On a chilly November night in 1966, two young couples drove into the TNT Area north of Point Pleasant, West Virginia, when they realized they were not alone. What they saw that night has turned into one of the great mysteries of all time; hence the Mothman Legacy began. It has grown into a phenomenon known all around the world by millions of curious people asking question: What really happened? What did these people see? Has it been seen since? It still sparks the world's curiosity - the mystery behind Point Pleasant West Virginia's MOTHMAN."

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…

Cynocephali, Wolf-Men, and the Dogman

In modern times, there are reports of creatures that look like werewolves. These creatures are commonly called Dogmen by cryptozoologists. Most people will probably think that all the Dogman stories are fake, but a lot of people (including me) believe they are true. This post is about Dogmen, but not really the ones seen today. You see, reports/stories of Dogman like beings go back thousands of years.


THE CYNOCEPHALI 

First, we will start of with a history of the cynocephali for those who may not know what they are. According to the Cryptid Wiki, the Cynocephali existed in the mythology of Europe, India, and China. They were said to exist in modern-day Iran. In European mythology, they were described as dog-headed people. Sometimes they were said to be hairy giants.

One theory to explain the Cynocephali is that they are just baboons. That could be the explanation, but, as we shall see, stories of werewolf like creatures continued, and still do in today's world. The Cryptid Wiki has…
