The Green Lady of Wahiawa Botanical Garden

Wahiawa Botanical Garden is located on the island of O'ahu in Hawaii. The 27-acre botanical garden is located between the Wai'anae and Ko'olau mountain ranges and is home to all kinds of tropical plants. It is also supposedly home to the Green Lady.

The Green Lady is said to be a ghost who haunts the area around Wahiawa Botanical Garden. Legend says that she is a mother who would regularly go to the area with her children, but cross the gulch in Wahiawa instead of crossing the bridge as she was afraid her children would get hit by a car.

The story says that one night, while returning home, the mother got separated from her children and desperately searched for them in the gulch. When she tried to find help, she was unable to. The woman then went back to the gulch, and disappeared like her children.

Many people have claimed that, since that time, there has been a ghost in the gulch covered in moss and vines. The green ghost still searches for her lost children, and will supposedly take any children she comes across. Other stories say that she has green scales and hair covered in seaweed, as well as sharp, jagged teeth.

Another aspect of the Green Lady is her horrible smell, presumably from the grass, moss and vines covering her. It is believed that a sudden bad odor is a sign that the Green Lady is nearby.

The Green Lady is said to haunt the area around the Wahiawa Botanical Garden, in the gulch where she lost her children, and areas around the Wahiawa Elementary School as well.

The "disappearing person turned ghost" is a common aspect in urban legends, and one we will see more of later…

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.
