“Nessie” in China - Kanas Lake Creature Filmed

(Daily Star)

A new video from China has some thinking a cousin of Nessie has been spotted. Several sites have reported on the sighting of something in Kanas Lake. The Daily Star reports:

EERIE footage of a huge shadow moving through an infamous lake has sparked fears a monster has been found.
The video shows a dark object slowly making its way across Kanas Lake, in north-west China.
A ripple of waves surround the object as it cuts through the water, without breaking the surface.
The sightings have sparked claims the creature is the 'Kanas Lake Monster' - which is often labelled the Chinese equivalent of Scotland's mythical Loch Ness monster.
'Really! There it [Kanas Lake monster] is! There it is,' a woman can be heard shouting in the clip, which was taken on May 15.
The monster was first 'spotted' in 1980 and the lake has since become a huge tourist attraction with people desperate to see the beast.
A worker in 2012 also captured footage showing huge waves emerging on the surface of the lake.
'I compared it to the size of a speedboat and a wild duck, the size of the mysterious object should be between the two,' Wang Hongqiao told China Central Television.
But not everyone believes the rumours.
Yuan Guoying, a local environmental expert, believes the Kanas monster is actually a group of Siberian giant trouts.

'Given the habit of the waves, there is only one kind of fish that could live in the lake and that's Siberian giant trouts,' he said.
'What actually happened under the water is that the Siberian giant trouts want to hunt for small fish and the small fish swim close to the water surface to avoid the trouts,' he added.
It only looks like a wave to me...

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.
