New Evidence Proves Wessie the Snake is Real?

Since the end of June, stories have circulated about "Wessie," the giant cryptid snake of Westbrook, Maine. The only thing for investigators to go on were eyewitness accounts.

Now, evidence has been found. Or has it?

On Saturday, August 20, police in Westbrook found a shed snake skin along the Presumpscot River.
Does this prove that Wessie the snake is real?

Now, the police are warning people about the 10-foot snake.

"Until the type of snake is determined and we can assess the safety risk, we caution people who recreate along the Presumpscot River to remain alert, maintain a safe distance from any wildlife, and report any sightings of the snake to the Westbrook Police Department," Police Chief Janine Roberts said. The police department is going to send samples of the skin to be tested.

Others believe that the skin could have been put there by a person, as a hoax. The President of the Main Herpetological Society, Rob Christian, said "It's very suspicious to find a shed that's laid out like this that wasn't laid out by someone."

Cryptozoologist Loren Coleman mentioned on his CryptoZooNews blog recently that the International Cryptozoology Musuem at Thompson's Point, Portland, Maine, has offered service in the search for the snake, and they hope to be able to obtain the skin for exhibit at the museum.

WCSH6 Portland also mentioned that Michael Rice spotted the snake three weeks ago. He said "I was using my binoculars and saw the snake's head in the water, popping out of the water." I hadn't heard of this sighting before.

At this time, it is unknown if the snake skin is really from Wessie or if it was planted there as a hoax by someone. Like I've done before, I'll update things if there's any more on the mysterious snake.

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.
