The "Proverbial 'Find of the Century?'" - Strange Creature Caught in Caucasus

An extremely interesting video was posted on YouTube in late May and June on two different channels (same video though) that shows a strange creature.

One Cryptomundo commenter said this could be the "proverbial 'find of the century.'" And it might actually be.

Some think the thing is a monkey in a costume. I think it may not be, however. The creature is said to have been caught in the Caucasus Mountains. The following was posted on Cryptomundo, from Igor Burtsev of the International Center of Hominology:

"It presented on Utube as a captured small hairy creature on the Caucases but not exactly where. Somebody wrote that in Karachaevo-Cherkes republic? but as I could understand they were talking in Azerbaijan language (now it's a separate state by the Kaspian sea)/ And I noticed there on a piece of paper Arabic and Latin letters show the date - November 30, 2016, or ehe year 1395 Hijri (?)and the name Haji Taha - in Russia they don't use such writings, it's another confirmation of Azerbaijan location of the case (my personal investigation, as I know Azerbaijan language and Arabic writings too). The Arabic writings show some figures - 75,11,95, 25 - and a couple of letters."

 as well

 I translated the title of the video I added on this post and got this:

"In the Caucasus caught a strange creature, similar to a brownie."

A "brownie" in this case is not a treat, but a fairy-like creature from English and Scottish folklore. Brownies are "the Scottish and Northern English counterpart of the Scandinavian tomte, the Slavic domovoi and the German Heinzelmannchen.

Basically the exact same as a fairy or hobgoblin.

An interesting note is that Thomas Keightley described the Brownie in this way:

"…A personage of small stature, wrinkled visage, covered with short curly brown hair, and wearing a brown mantle and hood." 

"A personage of small stature, wrinkled visage, covered with short curly brown hair…." could be an apt description of this thing. The hair may be a little longer than "short" but the description fits pretty well.

Another interesting note from the video is that they appeared to maybe have put blue socks on it?

Whatever this is, I'm thinking that it isn't a monkey in a suit or anything of that sort. It seems real. When I first saw just the face, I had doubts, but I began to doubt it less when I saw the hand, and then saw it walking around. Someone needs to figure out what this thing is.

Could it possibly be a real "brownie," something that inspired the stories of them???


A couple people have commented on here, and lots of others have on other sites, saying that the thing really just looks like a monkey. And as a friend said I really "jumped the gun" on this one. Yeah, it does look like a monkey in some sort of suit or with lots of extra hair on it. Walks like one too.

So yeah, not a fairy creature or the "find of the century."


  1. I've watched the video several times at different speeds and have talked with a couple other researchers and I'm almost completely convinced that the video is just a pet monkey in a suit. The way it walks with the people and the way the face looks is what convinced me.

  2. Very interesting. The close up on the hand is what made me think it might not be just a monkey in a suit. I hope there's more information to come on this.

    1. Yeah I've got to agree with you guys. Gonna put another post on this when my internet gets fixed

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…
