Cryptid U.S. Update

Some of you reading this may already know about the book I've been working on for the past year, Cryptid U.S.: Tales of Bigfoot, Lake Monsters, and More from Across America. I have posted updates on it a few times over the last year(see the links to those posts below), with the latest on Jan. 3rd. My orginal post on the book is actually one of my top posts ever!

I am finished with writing the book and have now sent it to a publisher and am currently waiting to hear back from them. Hopefully it is accepted! If it is it will probably be out soon, and I'll probably make it availible on places like Amazon and Barns & Noble. I am trying to get it out by April so I can have copies ready to take to the many Bigfoot/crypto conferences I will be at this year, including the Annual Bigfoot Conferecne in April and Creature Weekend and the Ohio Bigfoot Conference in May(all at Salt Fork State Park) and the SOSBI conference in September at Burr Oak State Park. If anyone reading this will be at those events, try to track me down and I'll sell a copy to you! For the dates of the conferences check out the Upcoming Crypto Conferences bar on the side of this page!

I'll be posting more about Cryptid U.S. later as it hopefully gets close to being published. I'd also like to thank again on here(I did in the book also) the people who were very helpful when I was writing it:

Joedy Cook, Doug Waller and SOSBI, Terry and Treba Jahn, Loraine Franklin of Champ's Trading Post, and the Champ witness from New York. Thank you all for your help!

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.


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…
