New Lizard Man Evidence? - Nope.

Something about the Bishopville Lizard Man appeared on the abc4 news website recently.

"Has Bishopville's 'Lizard Man' returned? New video surfaces in case" is the title of the article. Yesterday, they had a photo sent in by a woman named "Sarah." She claims that, as she was going to church, she spotted the Lizard Man running along the tree line. "So she did what anyone else wound do -- took a picture with her phone." The article says.

"My hand to God, I'm not making this up." Sarah said in an email to abc4.
Not the lizard man.
This would be good in a Godzilla movie, though! 

She is definitely making this up.

The article also has a part about a twenty second video that a man supposedly shot in early May.
"I saw your lizard man story and it's given me the courage to send you a video I took in early May. Though my wife believes me that it's real, she said she would be embarrassed that everyone would think I was a loon so I kept it a secret." The man wrote.

You can watch the man's video on the abc4 website, by clicking on the first link. Of course the object is super far away and the whole thing is blurry.

I will say that at least the photo is a hoax, and a bad one at that. The video might also be, but the figure is too far away to be certain if it is real or not.

The article does have some stuff on the actual sightings of the lizard man, too. I just hope those don't get put in the same category with the new fake ones….

If you really want to learn about the Bishopville Lizard Man, you should definitely check out Lyle Blackburn's excellent 2013 book Lizard Man: The True Story of the Bishopville Monster.

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.
