New Loch Ness Photo

A new photo has emerged online that supposedly shows the Loch Ness Monster.

Fox News reports:

"Is that 'Nessie'? A photo of a strange object moving in the waters of Loch Ness is sparking debate.
"Australian tourists Peter Jackson (no relation to the filmmaker of the same name) and Phillippa Wearne were driving along the loch when they spotted an object in the water and took a picture of the object on their phone, The Sun reports. They showed it to a local skipper who said he had 'not seen anything like it.'
"'It was pretty big even from 150 yards or more offshore. I didn't know what to think. We took photos and showed them to people at a B&B and then showed them to people on a cruise,' said Phillippa.
"Wearne added that the object was 'moving fast but in the direction of the current,' and quipped that if the skipper had not seen anything like that before, 'then it must be something.'
"Jackson said the couple was 'dumbfounded but excited' to see the object.
"The events took place on at 5:18 p.m. local time on June 22 when the couple was driving north on the west side of Loch Ness. They proceeded to get out of the vehicle and take pictures on their smartphones. The sighting slated five minutes, according to the register of Loch Ness monster sightings
"While not claiming it's the monster itself, Peter said, 'I know I saw something a I know it was large so I am keeping an open mind.'
"This sighting is only the second to make it onto the official register in 2017, noted Gary Campbell, registrar of sightings at Loch Ness.
"Campbell added that the picture, along with other pictures of the loch, is a 'little bit indistinct,' but added that with the detailed report handed in, 'there is really no clear explanation as to what the family caught on camera.'
"The only other sighting added to the register this year was on May 1 when a dark shape, higher than the waves was spotted in the Loch's Urquhart Bay."

It is also noted on the Loch Ness Monster blog that this new photo was taken about four miles south of Urquhart Castle.

As to what it is, I really can't tell. A log? Maybe. If it is a real LNM the neck seems oddly positioned as you can see in the photo below.

What do you think?

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.
