mokele mbembe

A group of American explorers have arrived in the Congo as they begin there search for Mokele-mbembe. The team is setting out in an attempt to prove if the modern day dinosaur believed to inhabit the jungles and rivers of the Congo in Africa is fact or fiction. The creature also known as the African Loch Ness Monster has a long list of reports and sightings by locals.

Biologist Stephen McCullah is leading the expedition along with researchers Joe Marrero and Sam Newton are set to begin there expedition this month. Group spokesman Marrero said they plan to be in the jungle searching for Mokele-mbembe and other new species for 3 months. Recent government studies show that over 80 percent of the Congo still remains unexplored.

Will this finally be the expedition that turns up evidence of the mythical creature or maybe Mokele himself. We will update you on the progress of the Mokele mbembe  expedition as new information becomes available.

Kelly Hopkinsville creatures return to Kentucky

Author: CryPtoReporter  |  Category: Crypto News  |  Comment (1)  |  Add Comment

Reports from Western Kentucky of a family being terrorized by a group of mysterious creatures. A man who wishes to be unidentified for now claims that his property and home have been attacked nightly by creatures he thinks could be extraterrestrial in origin. He describes the creatures as having no facial features except for a lip less mouth and large oily eyes and they are the stature or size of a small child. He claims the attacks have been ongoing now for months and are increasing in intensity.

The man believes the creatures are possibly cave-dwellers and are located in an abandoned mine shaft that is located at the edge of his property. He has sent letters to a team of paranormal investigators for some help in identifying these mysterious creatures. The man was able to get a photograph of footprints he claims is left behind by these creatures. According to reports there are photos of multiple footprints.

Many people are connecting these reports with the Kelly–Hopkinsville encounter which happened in 1955 which is one of the most well known and significant cases in area of Ufology. Maybe the creatures reported seen by the farming families then have now returned. Or are they possibly some kind of unidentified Cryptid ?

Here is one of the Kentucky creature footprint photos supplied by the man in question for attempted identification purposes:

Alaska’s Iliamna Lake monster – Nessie of the North

Author: CryPtoReporter  |  Category: Sightings  |  Comments (0)  |  Add Comment

The Iliamna Lake Monster is said to roam beneath the waters near the small Alaskan village of Iliamna. The lake monster is known to the locals as “illie” and has reported sightings going all the way back to the 1940′s. The unknown cryptid is reported to be anywhere from 10-30 feet long with a square shaped head. The monster has been reported to use its head to hit things such as small boats. The most recent reported sighting of the creature was in 1988 when several locals seen the creature from land and water.

Alaska's Iliamna Lake Monster

Some believe the creature in Lake Iliamna may be similar to other lake monsters like Ogopogo from Lake Okanogan or Nessie from Loch Ness although disputed by some because descriptions of illie don’t seem to match the serpent like descriptions of these other lake monsters. Some believe this creature may possibly be a large White Sturgeon a theory put forth by biologist Jeremy Wade from the popular Animal Planet show “River Monsters”.

A new theory has now been put forth by scientist that this creature and some other lake monsters in the region may actually be sleeper sharks. Sharks in Loch Ness has been a long standing hypothesis for explaining the creature seen there but the suggestion of them possibly being sleeper sharks is a new twist. These sharks can exceed 20 feet in length and weigh upwards of 4 tons and could possibly use these lakes as a food source. The abundance of salmon in both lake Iliamna and Loch Ness could possibly lure in these sharks. There are still many unknowns about these creature and some people already discount this theory all together but expeditions are planned to both Lake Iliamna and Loch Ness this year and in 2013 to try and get video of these sharks in the lakes or of the lake monsters themselves.

Animal Planets Finding Bigfoot – A Hoax ?

finding bigfoot

The TV show Finding Bigfoot has a lot of critics debunking the evidence that the legendary cryptid really exists. That now includes the people who appear on the show itself.

Cast members from the TV show have commented in various online forums that they are bugged by the heavy-handed editing done by producers of the series, and are not happy that they seem to be putting false words in their mouths. To say nothing of using tricks to make their actual findings more seemingly groundbreaking.

Critics of this kind of documentary-style Reality TV shows have pointed to programs about the Paranormal which seem to build on the gullibility and limited experience of viewers. The phrase “what the hell was that?” is becoming a catch-phrase for the practice.

It derives from the many characters in these shows who utter the phrase as they respond to perfectly normal, and easily explained, phenomenon caught on camera. Usually through night-vision FLIR lenses and “filming” ghosts or the famed Sasquatch itself. This seems to be the case in the latest example of rigged Reality TV.

Cast member and BFRO leader Matt Moneymaker says, in response to a question about one particular scene with typically grainy footage, “… the thing I ran after up the hill was a human — someone who was sneaking around us in the woods trying to watch the production in progress. I said so repeatedly and vehemently at the time, for the cameras, but they edited out all of that in order to make it seem unclear what I was chasing after.”

That seems to be all the proof needed. Looks like Reality TV itself is the next Sasquatch. Someday everybody will try to prove it really does exist..

Possible Chupacabra attacks in Russia

chupacabra

Neither local militiamen nor veterinarians can explain what kind of a creature is holding in awe dwellers of Anuiskoe Settlement in the Altai Territory.

Judging by descriptions of the eyewitnesses, the mysterious monster attacks their domestic animals at night and sucks their blood out making them die.

In the recent months there have been registered 13 cases of mass murder of rabbits and other small livestock in Anuiskoe Settlement.

Local dwellers are panicking. Some extremely strong and smart beast breaks doors of the rabbit cages, breaks out pieces of wood, and undermines the sheds. The character and traces of attacks are always the same: the rabbits are killed, each of them having only two small pinholes at the back of the neck, and sorted out into heaps. During night attacks on the rabbits the watchdogs yelp of fear and hide in doghouses.

Local Internet users just add up to the fears. In any search engine the most popular answer to the request “mysterious death of rabbits” refers to the vampire animal Chupacabra unknown to scientists.

Search for Yeti (abominable snowman) continues in Siberia

Possible Yeti Photo


A fourth science expedition has left for Mountain Shoria (a territory in Southern Siberia, east of the Altai Mountains) earlier on Wednesday in search of any traces of the abominable snowman. Taking part in the expedition will be the director of the International Center for Hominology, Igor Burtsev, deputy president of the public association Kosmopoisk, Vasily Dovgoshei, History Doctor Valery Kimeyev and other experts.

As Igor Burtsev, a participant in several previous expeditions, has told Itar-Tass, the search will last for about ten days. The experts are determined to find irrefutable evidence the Bigfoot (also known by the names of Sasquatch and Yeti) does exist.

“During the previous expedition a year ago I saw markers (half-broken branches) the creature uses to mark the controlled territory,” Burtsev said.

“Mountain Shoria is a perfect place for yetis. It is a sparsely populated, mountainous area, where there are many caves, it is relatively warm and there are sources of pure fresh water. In the mountain rivers fish is in abundance and hunting in the forests must be really good. I reckon the Bigfoot likes to go fowling. In the woods I have found several artifacts to confirm my theory of mine. This time I plan to find the Bigfoot’s shelter and even try to contact the creature.”

The head of the Tashtagol District, Vladimir Makuta, says that the first mention of Bigfoot’s presence in Mountain Shoria dates back to 1980. The creatures seem to have gone especially active over the past three years.

Chupacabra blamed for slaughtered goats in Mexico

slaughtered goats

Goats suspected of being killed by Chupacabra


Shepherds in Mexico  are up in arms — or heads, as the case may be — over a rash of beheadings inflicted on their goats, and many people are blaming the legendary predator known as the chupacabra.

Over the past two months, more than 300 goats owned by shepherds in Mexico’s Puebla state have been decapitated by someone, or something, that hasn’t yet been tracked down.

According to various reports, Felix Martinez, president of Colonia San Martin, recently stated that nearly 40 goats were killed near his municipality. Strangely, there was reportedly very little evidence of blood in the area where the goat bodies were found — throwing suspicion on an unknown animal or chupacabra.

The chupacabra falls into the cryptozoological category of cryptids, a term used to describe animals that haven’t yet been confirmed by science, like the  Loch Ness Monster and Bigfoot.

Chupacabra sightings often emanate from the Southwest U.S., Puerto Rico, Latin America and Mexico, and the animal is thought to attack livestock, leaving behind puncture wounds after it drains their blood.

AOL News reported in July that a bizarre-looking animal, allegedly a goat-blood-sucking chupacabra, was shot and killed by Texas Animal Control officer Frank Hackett.

“All I know is, it wasn’t normal. It was ugly, real ugly. I’m not going to tell no lie on that one,” Hackett told NBC DFW.

Medical researchers have speculated that the purported chupacabras of Texas and Mexico may actually be coyote hybrids, something DNA tests could determine.

Meanwhile, in Mexico, groups of peasants have formed watch groups to monitor any possible chupacabra activity in their communities.

Ootsa Lake creature sighting

Author: CryPtoReporter  |  Category: Sightings  |  Comments (0)  |  Add Comment

Ootsa Lake

The last thing Darlene Thompkins expected to see on her holiday was something she referred to as the ‘Ootsa Lake monster’.

Thompkins who is holidaying in Burns Lake with her family from Edmonton, said she named the mysterious sighting in Ootsa Lake a monster because she didn’t know what else to call it.

Thompkins and her granddaughter were wading in the water near the Ootsa Lake spillway last week, while her friend George sat on the shore.

“A plane flew over and we watched that go by, it looked like the pilot was doing some sort of training exercise, then when we looked back down there was a big wave in the water,” she said.


Thompkins said the wave struck her as being unusual at the time so she watched the large ripple in the water about eight to 10 metres from where she and her granddaughter were standing.

Thompkins then said she and her granddaughter saw a head appear out of the water.


“It looked like a huge snake head ,,, and it was a dark grey colour,” she said.

“I called out to George to come and look, but he said to come out of the water and was a little scared. I didn’t think about being scared because I was trying to see what it was, I grabbed my video camera and recorded but I was in a hurry and the focus was zoomed in so the footage is blurry,” she said.

Thompkins then grabbed a camera to take a picture of the creature and snapped a shot.


“It looks further away in the photo that what it was …. we saw it much closer,” she said.

“We saw it twice, then another one came up beside it and a third one came too,” said Thompkins adding that the creatures were very long like a snake.

“You could see the head while they were swimming along then further back there was another part of it – like a hump …. I can’t stop thinking about what we saw and wondering what it was,” she added.

“My uncle said it was probably a sturgeon, but this creature was swimming along with its head out of the water …. right up and out of the water …. and it was really big,” she said.

“I wish I knew what it was, I have heard other people say they have seen something similar ….. these lakes are so big, you would never know what is living in them,” she added.

Siberian lake monster ‘Nesski’ linked to missing russian fisherman

nesski - siberia lake monster

Russian fishermen are demanding a probe into a creature resembling the Loch Ness monster in a remote Siberian lake.

Locals say that ‘Nesski’ has devoured anglers who have been pulled into the murky waters of Lake Chany from their boats.

Those claiming to have glimpsed the creature say it resembles the classic long-necked image of Scotland’s fabled monster. It has also been called ‘snake-like’, while other accounts suggest a large fin and huge tail.

The latest mysterious death of a 59-year-old man last week has fuelled demands for a proper probe into what lurks beneath the surface of Chany, one of Russia’s largest freshwater lakes.

‘I was with my friend… some 300 yards from the shore,’ said 60-year-old Vladimir Golishev. ”He hooked something huge on his bait, and he stood up in the boat to reel it in.

‘But it pulled with such force that he overturned the boat. I was in shock – I had never seen anything like it in my life.

‘I pulled off my clothes and swam for the shore, not daring hope I would make it.’

He said his friend was pulled under the surface, a description in common with earlier incidents.

‘He didn’t make it – and they have found no remains.’

Three years ago 32-year-old Mikhail Doronin – a special services soldier – was lost.

‘The lake was calm, but suddenly the boat was rocking, and it capsized,’ said his 80-year-old grandmother Nina, who has lived beside the lake all her life.

‘Something of an awesome scale lives in the lake, but I have never seen it,’ said her husband, Vladimir, 81.

Official figures say 19 people have drowned in the lake in the past three years and in most cases their remains were never found. Locals say the true figures are higher.

Some bodies that have been washed up had been eaten by a creature with large teeth, they claim.

‘It is time to find out the truth,’ said Golishev.

Unlike deep Loch Ness, Lake Chany is no than 23 feet in depth. Frozen in winter, it is warm and popular with swimmers in summer. It is known to contain large carp.

The lake is 57 miles in length by 55 miles in width. A relic of the Ice Age, accounts of monsters in its waters were first made public in Soviet times.

Bizarre New Mexico Creature Carcass

Quote:

I was hiking with my dog about 6 miles northeast of Chaco Canyon in northwestern New Mexico. I was carrying water, my still camera, some food, a compass, a knife and my phone (which had no service in that area). I never traveled through this remote desert before and I hoped to capture some photos of the spectacular landscape. I saw the incredible carcass after we hiked about 2 1/2 hours and were about to turn around to head back to the truck. My dog wouldn’t go near it, which was unusual, as he always finds dead animals eagerly and I have to call him off.

I began to take a picture and the battery died after I snapped one frame. It was fully charged when I left that morning. I knew this was a significant find and I wanted to collect the specimen in lieu of the lack of photographic evidence to document the creature, but there was no way I could carry it back to the car. I decided I would come back with the means to do so, a large backpack with some ropes to tie it on with. As I couldn’t record the spot with my phone’s gps, I did my best to remember the spot and I marked the trail going back so I was sure I could retrace my steps.

I returned the next day with a friend from Taos, determined to bring the animal home. We easily found the trail that I had marked out the day before. It was gone. We couldn’t find a trace.

About the creature itself, it was much larger than any fox, more the size of a large coyote of wolf, about 48″ long. It had a pronounced and extremely long snout, like a tapir or platypus. The most unusual features were the bumps along the spine and the approx. 4-5 inch long “sabre-tooth”. I could see only a single one of these large fangs. The spine bumps seemed to extend out from the vertebra in line with the ribs. They had the same short dense fur that covered the body (definitely not the hairless mange dogs commonly referred to as chupacabra). It had some longer coarse hair on it’s haunches. It’s feet were oddly shaped, more like hooves, but with the features of canid paws, toes and nails. It’s legs were long and extended, especially the lower rear legs. The gaping hole in the ribcage was the only visible wound on the body and looking into it, I could see no remnant of any internal organs. There were no insects on the carcass.

I believe it is possibly a previously unclassified canine, perhaps distorted by the process of mummification. This was something extremely rare and unusual and I feel privileged to have seen and recorded it.
