Skunk Ape Caught on Video

A video that appeared online two months ago and supposedly shows a Skunk Ape, or Florida Bigfoot, is now making rounds on the internet.

The video is 22 seconds long and you can see something moving very far in the distance. Other than that, you can't really tell exactly what it is.

The Tampa Tribune posted an article about the video on the 12th:

"PLANT CITY - A video that purports to show a large, man- or ape-like creature in Alderman's Ford park has been making the rounds on the internet.
"The 22-second video, taken from a great distance and without commentary, depicts a furry, dark figure walking along the tree line before disappearing into the forest. The footage was reportedly shot at the county park off County Road 39.
"The video has been posted on a number of websites and Facebook pages that track sightings of bigfoot, a legendary - and many scientists say nonexistent - type of creature that has reportedly been spotted in some form all over the world.
"A spokeswoman for the Hillsborough County Parks, Recreation and Parks Department said she hadn't heard of any reports of bigfoot in any county park.
Laurie Champion, a Pasco County resident who runs a website, www.pinellaspascpparanormal.com, that among other things tracks bigfoot sightings, said she hadn't heard anything about the Plant City bigfoot. Her site includes links to video of bigfoot at Lettuce Lake Park near Tampa and Jay B. Starkey Wilderness Park near New Port Richey.
"While Champion believes in bigfoot and said she encountered one in 1992 while hiking with a friend, she said many bigfoot photos and videos are fabricated.
"'If you look, you'll see a few of the biggest hoaxes you'll ever find (on the internet),' she said."

Two people in the article say they haven't heard about any bigfoot sightings in the area where the video was taken. Well, just because no one has reported a sighting before this does not mean that Bigfoots cannot live there. After all, one person will have to report a sighting in an area before you hear of others from it.

Watch the video and tell me what you think. Is it a real Skunk Ape, or a hoax?

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.
