The Crap on Cryptozoology News

Cryptozoology News is a website that has reports of encounters with cryptids, aliens, and the like all the time. Bigfoot Evidence often has links to articles on CZ News. It would all be extremely interesting, if it was real.

While researching for my book Cryptid U.S.(which is available now) I found an article on about Cryptozoology News. I had read some of CZ News' articles before, and even used one of them as a source for a pterosaur encounter for my book. Well, you can imagine I was surprised when I read that all of CZ News was fake.

Just recently, an article appeared on CZ News about a man claiming to have an alien encounter. You can view that here. This made me laugh. I'll let commenter Matt Z. on CZ News explain the rest:
"I'm one for believing in aliens - the universe is too big not to! But holy crap that is so photoshopped it hurts. "

Thank you Matt.

 Other articles on CZ News are like that one and are just so crazy you can't believe them. Trust me, if anyone would be the one to believe a cryptid encounter report, it would be me. But I'm not stupid enough to fall for this. The worst one, though, has to be the Bigfoot photo on CZ News a few months ago. It would be really good, if the Bigfoot wasn't a cutout. I had plenty of people sharing this with me when it came out. I can't believe people believed it.

Other articles on CZ News have included things about trolls, pterosaurs with wingspans of 80 FEET, and and "anteater-man."

I'm not saying I don't believe anything in cryptozoology. I'm just saying that Cryptozoology News is fake, and no one should rely on it for their crypto/alien information.

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.
