New Film of a Loch Ness Monster?

Just after the report of a photo of a "Loch Ness Monster" (that looked more like a bird or a log), which was just after reports that any Nessies had not been seen for 8 months, come this report of one of the lake's monsters on video.

The Daily Mail reports:

"This video shows what looks like a head and a long neck poking out of the tranquil water in the Scottish loch.
"It was spotted by Rob Jones, 35, from North Wales, who uploaded the video to YouTube to find out if anyone knew what it was.
"He asked: 'What the h*** was it? Did anyone else see it?'
"Speaking to the Scotsman, he said: 'I saw it quite far across the Loch near the castle, but by the time I stopped the van, it was very close and other people stopped to take photos too.
"'Sadly, I don't believe in monsters, but I would love to know what it was.'
"'Nessie' appears to be unfazed by the boat moving past him, as does the man who can be seen standing on the top of the boat, by the creature's presence, throwing confusion into the situation.
"Rob tried to follow the monster's path, but it disappears from sight behind some bushes."

I am having some doubts about this film, and there's many reasons for that:

  1. The boat right beside it . Whatever is in the video went right by this boat, with someone standing out on it, and the person didn't seem to react at all. That's not really what I think you would do if there was a lake monster swimming right beside you.
  2. The "creature" itself. The "neck" is held straight up the whole time. To me it almost looked like it may have moved a head around 40-50 seconds but I'm not sure. But other than that, it doesn't move. At all.
  3. At the end of the video, after the filmmaker looks at those standing next to him, he looks back at the lake. And at this time, you can still see the "thing" in the bottom right-hand corner, but they either don't notice or don't care, since he didn't focus on it at all. Suspicious. I think if someone was witnessing the Loch Ness Monster in a place where they could see it clearly, they'd keep the camera on it!
  4. I'm also very suspicious of this and the earlier photo, because they were taken shortly after lots of news about Nessie being "missing." Later in the Daily Mail article, it is noted that the two sightings took place within five days of each other in May. Two sightings within five days when there hadn't been a reported sighting for eight months before that?
I don't think this particular film, and the earlier photo, are very credible. It just seems too coincidental to me that there are two sightings, both with something caught on film, shortly after the news about no sightings. Probably just people trying to get their "15 minutes of fame."

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.
