Mystery Sea Creature Photographed?

Today I've seen this mysterious picture on three sites. I first saw it on Cryptomundo this morning (see: Corfu Cryptid.) Later I also saw it on Mysterious Universe (see: Crocodile-Hippo and Crocodile-Buffalo Puzzle Many), and also on the Daily Mail, where it was originally posted.

The Daily Mail article is titled "Mystery of the deep: Tourist baffled by bizarre SEA MONSTER captured on camera in Corfu." Here's how it starts:

"There is no question that the sea holds mysteries and inhabitants beyond our imagination, that we are yet to encounter.
"But a Scottish tourist was left in shock after unwittingly capturing the image of a bizarre sea creature in his holiday snaps.
"Harvey Robertson, 52, was on a boat cruise with his family in Corfu when he took a number of photographs inside a sea cave.
"He held the camera over the side of the boat to take pictures of the sea.
"But when he lifted his camera back up, Robertson later realized a mysterious creature had appeared in one of the frames."

The article goes on to quote Robertson,  who said:

"I have no idea what it could have been, I have never seen anything like it. I caught the picture by accident. I was in a sea cave on a small boat about 20 miles south of Albania on the west coast of Greece."

He claims he was trying to "capture the water color and was not looking at the water" when he took the picture.

I have to admit that I also have no clue what is in the photo. But, to me, it does somewhat look like something that's just, well, fake. I don't know if it's just me, but it almost looks like the thing's made out of plastic. It also kind of resembles a dolphin of some sort. Robertson's story is strange, too. He claims he was on a boat, in a cave, with his family and wanted to take pictures of the water, but apparently didn't look at the water (or his camera!) when he took said photos. And then, you get the mysterious sea monster. And of course, he has no idea where it came from or what it was.

There tends to be a good number of supposed cryptid photos on the Daily Mail webtsite, like the photo of a "fairy" (that is obviously fake) from June, and a video of a supposed live pterosaur (that is also fake, and it's painfully obvious.)

This photo, though, for me, at least, is a little harder to explain. What do you think it is? A hoax? A dolphin of some sort? Or is it a real unknown sea creature?

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.

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…

Review - Invasion on Chestnut Ridge

Small Town Monsters' 5th film, Invasion on Chestnut Ridge, comes out soon. STM director Seth Breedlove let me check out an advance copy of the film to put up a review on here. Though I've been quite busy for about the last month and a half, I finally got a chance to check out the film, and these are my thoughts on it.

Invasion is about the strange happenings along the Chestnut Ridge in Pennsylvania. Local residents who have had strange encounters are interviewed, as well as researchers Stan Gordon and Eric Altman.  Along the ridge, witnesses have reported ghost lights, UFOs, Bigfoot, werewolves, thunderbirds, and many, many other odd things.

Many well known sightings happened in the early 1970s, when reports of UFOs and Bigfoot were very frequent. The strangest thing of all this was that sometimes the two would be seen at the same time, or shortly after on another. Some witnesses even saw a white colored Bigfoot that was holding a ball of light.

On another occasion, two Bigfo…
