Sharp-Toothed "Sea Monster" Washes Up in Mexico

Another mystery "sea monster" has washed up, this time in Mexico. The Sun reported on the discovery of the strange-looking remains which were called "very creepy:"
Marine monster?

A MYSTERY sea monster has left the internet stunned after washing up on the shore.
A woman was shocked after what she thought was a piece of old rope turned out to be the terrifying beast. 
It is pictured with a wide jaw and a range of jagged teeth.
The beast washed up in the western state of Sinaloa by local Beatriz Morales Acuna, who uploaded images to social media.
People who saw the images online have since been scratching their heads as it was widely shared.
Some believe it to be an eel or sea snake, while others even guessed it was from outer space.
Acuna said on social media: 'When I came out of the sea, there it was.
 'Nobody was bothered by it because they thought it was just old rope from a sailing boat.
'It was only after I took pictures that people became intrigued.'
The creature died shortly after, and some hive identified the beast as a Deep-sea lizardfish.
The species is found in tropical and subtropical seas across the globe.
Unlike most fish, they have a lizard-like bony head that is flattened along with a large mouth filled with sharp teeth.
One user on social media said: 'The silly things that people get excited over. It is just a dead fish. Did anyone send the Mexican Navy to deal with it.
Another said: 'I think it is a Catfish. A smelly dead one.' 
 And another added: 'It is very creepy, but I am sure it is a Deepsea lizardfish.'
Too bad we can't tell the size of the thing in the picture. The head, however, does look like a lizardfish shown below.

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.
