Recent Loch Ness Monster Report

(Daily Record)

On June 1, an 11-year-old girl snapped a photo of something in Loch Ness. The Daily Record ran a story on June 12 on the report, which reads:

The first sighting of the Loch Ness Monster in moonlight has been recorded.
As scientists scout Loch Ness for the signs of life, Nessie has reared her head again - in front of an 11-year-old girl.
The third sighting of the year of the legendary monster has been accepted by the official Nessie register.
Natalie Hodgson and her family, on holiday from Yorkshire, took a picture of the head of an unknown creature in the water at 10.30pm on June 1 from the Highlands Lodges holiday park where they were staying.
The creature remained for a few minutes caught in the moonlight before disappearing.
It follows a 'remarkable, feature film length' video of the Loch Ness Monster shot by a Nessie watcher from Ireland on April 30. 
Hospital clerical worker Eoin O'Faodhagain from Donegal took a ten minute video from the Loch Ness webcam.
The creature moves from right to left and as it swam towards Urquhart Bay - a favorite haunt of Nessie - and is seen diving and surfacing with water splashes.
DNA sampling is currently being used to discover previously unrecorded organisms in Loch Ness.
However Prof Neil Gemmell, a New Zealand scientist leading the project, said he did not believe in Nessie, but was confident of finding genetic codes for other creatures.
And we'll skip to the next part of the article that focuses on the new sighting:

Gary Campbell, Keeper of the Official Register of Sightings at Loch Ness, said the recent sightings showed the enduring unexplained appeal of Nessie.
He said the latest sighting was the first of the monster in the moonlight.
'I know of no other of Nessie in the moonlight. The photograph was taken by the 11-year-old girl in the family,' said Mr Campbell. 'It is unexplained.'
To me this photo only looks like a blob in the water. It could be a wave, or possibly a swimming bird or other animal. Campbell's comments on the "enduring appeal of Nessie" causing lots of sightings do not help his case either… if people go to the Loch expecting to see a Nessie, they are more likely to mistake something else for it. It would not surprise me if that is what happened here and with the earlier sightings.
Probably not Nessie

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.
