Could an enormous yet unknown sea creature be responsible for “the bloop sound” captured by scientists back in 1997. Hydrophones captured the extremely low frequency and loud sound from approx 3000 miles away and it has been analyzed and debated ever since as to its origins. Strange Mysteries takes a look at “the bloop sound” and what it may or may not be. Scientists have rules out the possibilities of the noise coming from some kind of man made source and its believed to have been made by some kind of ocean mammal. It is believed that if this sound did come from a living creature is that it would be up to several magnitudes larger then the blue whale the latest known living organism. Here is the video for you to check out with the original sound recordings and much more info.

 

 

Champ Echolocation recorded again in Lake Champlain

Champ still inhabits the waters of Lake Champlain according to the team known as Champ Search who recorded Echolocations similar to those from 2003. Dennis Jay Hall and Kelly Elizabeth from Champ Search hit Lake Champlain in search of the elusive lake monster using various types of equipment including underwater cameras, hydrophones, and sonar. They were able to record the latest Echolocations which many people in and around the Crypto world believe to be from Champ. It is unknown as to exactly what these creatures use the Echolocation for perhaps as a way to locate food or to communicate with one another as parts of the lake has very low visibility.

The Echolocation of Champ from 2003 was analyzed by top scientists and it could not be matched up with any known creature. It closely resembled the sounds of the Orca or Beluga Whale neither of which are known to inhabit the lake nor does any other creature known that uses Echolocation. The team also claims to have had a sightings on the New York side of the lake using underwater cameras and binoculars which they believe to have been Champ. They plan to release video of the search along with the sighting soon but for now we have the 2014 Champ Echolocation recording below.

Bigfoot baiting ideas from Bill Brock of Monsters Underground

Author: CryPtoReporter  |  Category: Crypto News  |  Comments Off  |  Add Comment

 

Bill Brock the leader of the Monsters Underground team a new show on Destination America gives his opinions on Bigfoot gifting or Bigfoot baiting. Brock questions the use of any kind of processed items when Bigfoot feeding posing the question as to why Bigfoot would want that kind of stuff when he lives in the best organic farm around. There have been many different theories from many people in and around the Bigfoot community on the best way and items used to lure in the elusive crytid. With very little established data its hard to know which if any ways of doing it work better then others. Here is the rest of what Brock has to say about the types of bait and the different types devices that can be used to keep an eye on the area your baiting in so that you can get proof if Bigfoot does decide to show up and “take the bait”.

 

monsters underground

 

So here is my take on Gifting.. (Sasquatch Feeding) Put up a trail cam on your gifting area.. If IR is your issue due to reports of Bigfoot being able to see IR, don’t worry, Simply get a Plot Watcher.. Or even a Go Pro that has been modified for Night use.. Full Spectrum if possible.. Let’s get proof of these reports. Stop thinking they are there and lets KNOW they are there…

Why would Bigfoot want some processed crap when he has the best Organic farm ever? Just wondering I guess… Now, I will put entire dead animals out as Bait.. I think there is a better chance of a Bigfoot getting lazy and grabbing some dead Goat than a jar of Jiff…

Five lesser-known U.S. cryptids and monsters

Author: CryPtoReporter  |  Category: Crypto News  |  Comments Off  |  Add Comment

 

Most people have heard of cryptids and monster such as Bigfoot also known as Sasquatch and the Loch Ness Monster. Some people even a little more into creatures and monsters may have heard of other cryptids like the chupacabras , Jersey Devil , Mothman, and even Champ. But there are still several more lesser-known cryptids , creepy creatures , and mythical monsters that can be found in the United States. Here are five cryptids that you probably never heard of. Maybe one of these mysterious creature resides near you and you never even knew it !

 

1. Tahoe Tessie : location – California and Nevada

This lake monster is said to inhabit the waters of Lake Tahoe. Sightings of the creature go all way back to the 19th century where the local Paiute and Washoe tribes claimed the creature lived in an underwater tunnel. The creature has been nicknames Tessie. Sightings of Tessie still continue today and witnesses describe the creature as being anywhere from 10 to 80 feet long and a black or turquoise serpentine like body. Some believe that Tessie could very well be a Plesiosaur , Mosasaur, or Icthyosaur because fossils of these creatures have all been found in local area. Legendary undersea explorer Jacques Cousteau allegedly emerged from a expedition in Lake Tahoe via a submarine and said “The world isn’t ready for whats down there” !

2. Lizard Man of Scape Ore Swamp : location – South Carolina

This creature known as the Lizard Man is said to live in the swamps of Lee County , South Carolina. Described as a 7 foot tall reptilian humanoid like cryptid its sightings go all way back to 1988. A eye witness report was filed by Christopher Davis who saw the creature while he was beside the Scape Ore Swamp changing a tire. Davis claimed he seen creature running toward him and got in his car to escape and the creature jumped onto the top of his roof and clung to it as he tried to get it off. When he returned home he noticed his side-view mirror had been damaged and he had deep scratches across his roof left by the creature. More these types of sightings and reports of lizard like creatures continued to be sent to local police. Local law enforcement was skeptical but did note that multiple reports from reliable people lead them to believe that something was indeed being seen although likely a bear. But some large three-toed footprints were discovered in the area in which plaster casts were made and the S.C. Marine Resource Department upon examining them said they were unclassifiable. A recent report from 2011 by a local couple claiming there car was attacked showed damage similar to the 1988 Lizard Man incident according to Lee County Sheriffs officer.

3. Pope Lick Monster : location – Kentucky

The creature is said to reside in Louisville Kentucky along the railway trestle over Pope Lick Creek. The creature is said to be a human-goat hybrid with a deformed human torso and a horned head with goat legs. There are several local legends linked to the origins of the creature from a reincarnated farmer who would sacrifice goats in order to obtain Satanic powers to a circus freak who escaped and vowed revenge on area because he was mistreated. Stories of how the creature claims its victims also vary with some who believe the creature uses voice mimicry luring trespassers into oncoming trains and others who believe that it slays its victims using an ax. The Pope Lick Train Trestle has become a destination for many including thrill-seekers because of these legends and there the location has seen a number of deaths.

4. Chessie : location – Virginia and Maryland

This lake monster sometimes called a sea monster is said to inhabit the waters of Chesapeake Bay. Sightings of the mysterious creature have been reported going back to the 1970′s. The creature has been described as being between 25 to 40 feet long with a finned serpent-like body. There was a video tape of what many believe may have been the creature in 1982 showing a large brownish object moving like a snake from side to side but it has never been fully substantiated. There was another notable sighting of Chessie in 1997.

5. Ozark Howler : location – Ozark Mountains

This creature is said to roam the Ozark Mountains through the states of Texas , Arkansas, Missouri, and Oklahoma. The creature is described as a large black cat that has glowing eyes and horns. It gained its name from a very loud eerie howl that it makes as it travels through the mountains. There are many theories as to what the creature may actually be including some cryptozoologist who think it may be an unrecognized large cat while some evolutionists think it could be some type of hybrid or mutated mountain lion breed. Still many skeptics think that the legends and stores of the Howler were likely inspired by a British folklore called the black dog of death.

New Video on Sasquatch and Sasquatch footprints found on the London Trackway

Author: CryPtoReporter  |  Category: Sightings  |  Comments Off  |  Add Comment

Here is a great video about Sasquatch by Bigfoot researcher Toby Johnson. He describes the Bigfoot tracks cast from what is being called the London Trackway. Over 120 sequential suspected Sasquatch tracks were found south of Eugene,Oregon near the town of London. The footprints found are seen by many as solid evidence of the existence of Bigfoot. He also talks about some of the Sasquatch sightings that have taken place in the area. Forests, caves, and probably even garden sheds seem like viable places to spot Sasquatch. He must have tools to keep up his habitat in the woods and caves, no? Okay, so maybe no one has spotted Bigfoot in their garden shedyet, that is known, but surely things they can find in there would be suitable for their lifestyle.

Also included is a video from Dr. Jeff Meldrum on his work with Sasquatch footprints and and the belief in the elusive cryptid.

Alaska’s Iliamna Lake monster – Nessie of the North

Author: CryPtoReporter  |  Category: Sightings  |  Comments Off  |  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.

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.

At first glance it looks like another dark ripple on the water.

But study the photograph more closely and a dark hump and tail can be seen poking through the water’s surface, or so a life-long hunter of the Loch Ness monster hunter claims.

William Jobes, 62, believes that he may have at last captured the elusive creature on camera after 45 years of trying.

‘I had a wonderful shock,’ Mr Jobes said.’I have actually been coming up to Inverness for the past 45 years and I have never seen anything like this before.’

Quickly grasping his camera, Mr Jobes from Irvine in Ayrshire, managed to take a single picture before the ‘head’ disappeared under the surface.

However, to his delight a dark, hump-like shape broke the waves and he was able to take more photographs of the apparent sighting on May 24 at just after 11.10am.

Mr Jobes is convinced it was not a seal or piece of wood.

‘To be honest I know the difference between a piece of wood or a particular animal,’ he said.

‘I immediately did think it was a seal but it’s head was like a sheep.’

However, veteran Nessie hunter Steve Feltham, remains sceptical, although he admits the hump photograph cannot be immediately explained and is worth further investigation.

‘The river comes out there and something large could have come down the river and flowed out there,’ he suggested.

Mr Jobes’ is the second potential sighting of nessie so far this summer.

Last month Foyers shop and cafe owner Jan Hargreaves and her husband Simon believe they caught a glimpse of the creature.

The apparent sighting of Nessie comes after a couple were left shocked when they discovered the rotting body of a sea monster while walking along a beach at Bridge of Don,  Aberdeen.

Margaret and Nick Flippence made the incredible find as they exercised their dogs at the popular beauty spot.

Mr Flippence, 59, who lives nearby, said: ‘We were stunned. I thought, “oh my God what is it?”

Curled up by the foot of sand dunes was the 30ft-long body of the unidentified animal with head, tail and teeth all discernible.

Experts are now examining the pictures with one suggesting it could be the body of a whale.

Before the discovery of the enormous sea carcass, a large creature, 20 to 30ft long with humps on its back, was filmed moving through the waters of an Alaskan bay.

The unidentified creature which was filmed by local fisherman in 2009 has already drawn comparisons to Scotland’s infamous Loch Ness Monster.

Scientists believe that the Alaskan creature could be a Cadborosaurus -  a type of sea serpent that got its name from Cadboro Bay in British Columbia and is said to roam the North Pacific.

Paul LeBlond, former head of the Department of Earth and Ocean Sciences at the University of British Columbia, told Discovery News: ‘I am quite impressed with the video.

‘Although it was shot under rainy circumstances in a bouncy ship, it’s very genuine.’

The Cadborosaurus willsi, meaning ‘reptile’ or ‘lizard’ from Cadboro Bay, is an alleged sea serpent from the North Pacific thought to have a long neck, a horse-like head, large eyes, and back bumps that stick out of the water.

In 1937, a supposed body of the animal was found in the stomach of a whale captured by the Naden Harbour whaling station in the Queen Charlotte Islands, a British Columbia archipelago.

Samples of the animal were brought to the Provincial Museum in Victoria, where curator Francis Kermode concluded they belonged to a fetal baleen whale.

The animal’s remains, however, later disappeared.

James Wakelun, a worker at the whaling station, last year said that he saw the creature’s body and ‘it wasn’t an unborn whale.’

Like other cryptids, animals whose existence is suggested but not yet recognised by scientific consensus, the Cadborosaurus has existed only in grainy photographs and eyewitness accounts.

Professor Jeff Meldrum hypothesizes 500-750 Bigfoot species living today

Author: CryPtoReporter  |  Category: Crypto News  |  Comments Off  |  Add Comment

Jeff Meldrum

“My goal is not to convince, my goal is to open minds,”said Jeff Meldrum, professor of anatomy and anthropology at Idaho State University. Meldrum has been researching the specimen of Sasquatch for more than 15 years and has received national attention for his work, both positive and negative.

His research examines various evidences which suggest that the mythical creature Sasquatch may in fact be real. In particular, he hypothesizes there may be not only one creature living today, but as many as 500-750 of the Sasquatch species.

“People have been so conditioned that this isn’t possible that when they finally see it, it upsets their whole equilibrium,” he said.

Meldrum said many people, both inside and outside of academia, don’t believe that Sasquatch could be real.

“Some of the naysayers adapt that position because such a creature, such a species could not exist under our noses and not have been discovered,” he said.

Others, he said, don’t accept the possibility out of stubbornness.

“There’s a certain chic to being critical these days,” he said, “and skepticism is worn as a bright red arm band by some individuals.”

Dr. Robert Schmidt, USU professor of wildlife policy and human dimensions in the College of Natural Resources, invited Meldrum to come and speak.

“I met Dr. Meldrum a number of years ago and it was just interesting about how he, as a person with a credentials in science, how he uses that process to look at Sasquatch, which is a very different way than the other Sasquatch fans,” he said. “He has this logical process by which he sorta says ‘I can include this information.’”

Ryan Carlisle, an international studies major who attended the lecture, said the presentation didn’t affect his belief in Sasquatch.

“It’s a possibility,” he said. “I didn’t totally discount it. It could be.”

Halley Kartchner, a graduate student in human dimensions of ecosystems science and management who considers herself an amateur Bigfoot enthusiast said,  “I thought it was really refreshing take on the legend of Sasquatch. My other exposure to it has been kinda crazy people I guess.”

She said that while she’s not completely convinced that Sasquatch is real, Meldrum’s lecture made her more inclined to believe he could be.

“It was really good to hear someone with a Ph.D and all this background knowledge giving his take on it,” she said.

Sara Preece, a graduate in marine biology from BYU, said, “I had never seen evidence presented the way he had. I feel like he presented it very factually, very evidence-based. He wasn’t trying to change anyone’s mind or convince anybody, he was just presenting objective evidence for people.”

She said she doesn’t necessarily believe or disbelieve that Sasquatch is real because belief connotes a religious type of conviction, but said Meldrum’s presentation did make her think that Sasquatch could be real.

Meldrum said he himself is not positive that Sasquatch is real, but that the evidence compels him to continue researching.

Animal Planet Team to search for Bigfoot in Uwharrie Forest

Author: CryPtoReporter  |  Category: Crypto News  |  Comments Off  |  Add Comment

bigfoot 2

Producers, actors and a crew from Animal Planet, yes you read right, Animal Planet, are coming to Montgomery County. Why you ask….they are coming in hopes of catching a glimpse of “Bigfoot” in the Uwharrie National Forest. Yes, you also read that right, “Bigfoot” in the Uwharrie National Forest.

It appears that the Uwharrie National Forest has become the hot spot for “Bigfoot” sightings, especially if you leave a Zagnut candy bar around. Michael Greene of Salisbury says he captured a thermal image of “Bigfoot” in the forest, using a Zagnut candy bar.

Greene says on his Web site, Bushloper.net that, he has “Been on the trail of Bigfoot for some 20 years. He has traveled from Bella Coola, BC to the Teslin River, Yukon Territory, to Bluff Creek, CA, to the Olympic Peninsula, WA, to the Adirondack Mountains of NY State, Florida’s Everglades and to the forests of North Carolina, where he now makes his home. Greene has an MS in Behavioral Psychology, is a court-qualified Questioned Documents Expert and for 20 years was Chief Investigator for a State Fraud Bureau. He is a pilot and a former EMT and member of the National Ski Patrol.” Greene also describes his encounter on the Web site detailing the filming and the use of the candy bar.

Greene says he first encountered “Bigfoot” two years ago and that just like any other species there are multiple creatures. “They multiply and there has to be thousands of them,” said Greene. But Greene realizes there are skeptics and says, “Until I saw it myself, I did not believe it. It was like a fairy tale.”

Greene is not alone in his search. West Montgomery football coach John Pate also is an avid believer and field researcher. Pate and Greene are both members of the Bigfoot Field Research Organization, which will be a part of the search.

Pate is organizing a meeting at the Troy Fire Department for anyone interested in talking to the film crew about their own personal experiences with “Bigfoot” encounters. The meeting is set for Feb. 8 from 6-9 p.m.. Pate has been an investigator for the organization for four years, but says he has been looking for “Bigfoot” as a hobby for 15 years. “Some people hit golf balls, I go to the woods. It is my sanity.” Pate says he has not been so lucky as to see “Bigfoot” but he has heard him. Pate says he has talked to people that have seen “Bigfoot” in this county though and he hopes they will come out and share their story. “The one dominant thing about “Bigfoot” is his eyes. They are orange and have a dominant shine to them,” said Pate.

Pate says the field researchers are as diverse a group as you will ever meet. Doctors, businessmen and others are all gathering material for the organization. A drive in the forest to try and flush out “Bigfoot” will be held Saturday, Feb. 12.
