Another Mystery Mega Killer? Half-Eaten Shark found on Florida Beach

Just after rumors of a gigantic killer shark in Britain comes another story about the same thing, this time from Florida.

CBS News reports:

"A half-eaten shark washed ashore Saturday on New Smyrna Beach in Florida, and everyone appears to have the same question: What ate it?
"Photos of the estimated 5-foot-long shark quickly spread throughout social media over the weekend after a Volusia County Beach Safety Ocean Rescue lifeguard posted a picture of the dead shark.
"'Anyone up for a swim? LOL I guess there is something even bigger out there. #blacktip #whereiskatherine,' the lifeguard tweeted.

"Beach Safety spokeswoman Tammy Morris told CBS affiliate WKMG the shark was either a blacktop or a spinner shark. She said the shark was likely attacked by a bigger fish.
"'It is unknown what type of predator bit the shark or how far offshore it was when it was attacked,' Morris told the station.
"But some locals have their own ideas.
"Nick Oulette, from Eustis, is a frequent visitor of the beach who often spends weekends fishing with friends. The 23-year-old said he spotted the tailless shark on Sunday afternoon near the dock.
"'Definitely a bigger shark took a bite out of this guy,' Oulette told CBS News said. 'Possibly a barracuda, but my money would be on another shark.'
"Others have turned their suspicions on Katherine, a 14-foot great white shark that was tagged with a  satellite tracking device and can be tracked by Ocearch. The giant shark was spotted off the Florida coast in January.
"'Katherine's snack?' one Twitter user asked.
"'Could this be the work of Katherine?' another pondered.
"Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officials tweeted Monday that another great white shark was spotted about 20 miles off Ormond Beach on Feb. 1.
"Morris said though they may never know what attacked the shark, officials will certainly continue to keep an eye out."
Just thought this was interesting since it was right after findings of seals in Britain that are thought to have been killed by a giant shark...

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.
