"In Australia alone is to be found the Grotesque,
the Weird, the strange scribblings of Nature learning how to write.
Some see no beauty in our trees without shade, our flowers without perfume, our birds who cannot fly,
and our beasts who have not yet learned to walk on all fours.
But the dweller in the wilderness acknowledges the subtle charm of this fantastic land of monstrosities...
The phantasmagoria of that wild dreamland termed the Bush interprets itself..." - Marcus Clarke

True story of mysterious Yeti spotted in Spanish mountains finally revealed 
Skiers holidaying in at the Aramon resort in Formigal, northeastern Spain, were left terrified when a gigantic beast was spotted near the slopes.
Aramon reassured tourists that they would "remain alert" and went to search for the massive white animal. Shaky video footage and pictures of the being running about were also posted to social media and baffled the internet.
But now the sighting has been revealed as a hoax.



True story of mysterious Yeti spotted in Spanish mountains finally revealed 
I have often said that in order to validate a picture you must first validate the story behind it.
Okay so I am not so impressed with the picture. But let’s do some follow through on the story.
But as the story went on it became more elaborate, involving DNR, Sheriffs, sworn affidavits and dogs to track the beast.
This didn’t make the news like all the other police responded Bigfoot events why? We see this typically in hoaxes.
Also the area was supposed to be remote as well…

Australia's marsupial lions 'dropped from trees' to attack prey, study finds 
When humans first set foot in Australia about 50,000 years ago, they could have faced ferocious marsupial lions that ambushed prey from trees and grew to the size of African lions. A new study reveals the now-extinct megafauna were adept climbers, could tear meat cleanly off bones, and reared their young in caves.


The entire FEB 1968 ARGOSY magazine article on the PG Film

'Bigfoot', Mission, British Columbia 1977 

MISSION, British Columbia. Monday (AAP)

A large hairy creature leaving 35 centimetre footprints crossed the path of a bus near Mission yesterday morning and disappeared into the bush, the bus driver and six passengers told police.

The reported sighting of ‘Bigfoot’ was given a “good credibility rating” by an Oregon investigator.



The Wild Man of Tallarook 1880

The re-appearance on Thursday of the mysterious individual who for a series of years has haunted the Tallarook Ranges, and the subsequent discovery of his caves, created quite an excitement in the neighbourhood. On Sunday upwards of 50 persons visited the gully and examined the caves. So identified had the stranger become with the place where his habitations have been found, that it was popularly known as "The Wild Man's Gully."




It's literally raining fish in western Queensland

It's often said to be pouring cats and dogs but in outback Queensland it appears to have been raining fish.

Much-needed rain drenched drought-ravaged western parts of the state this week, bringing some unexpected scaly visitors.

Following falls on Thursday, Tahnee Oakhill snapped footage of her family finding small fish at their remote cattle station 70km northwest of Winton.




Journal of an Exploring Expedition to the Eastward of Northam (1861)

This morning on further conversation, these men gave us an account of some strange animal they call Jungra and Jimbra, male and female, which they describe as a very large strong animal of the monkey tribe, very fierce, and will attack them when single, kill them, and eat them. They were asked if the Jimbra or Jungra in any way descirbled Ginka or the devil. They replied that the devil was never seen, but that the others were both seen and felt by some of them.

'Thames Monster' Video: Hoax or Mammal?

If what’s depicted in the video is in fact alive — and not, for example, only residing as a video effects file on a desktop somewhere — it’s unlikely to be a single enormous creature, as it appears to be in the video. Instead it’s more likely to be two smaller animals traveling together, one in front of the other but creating the illusion of one long, multi-humped serpentine form.

Dreaming of DNA: Review of Sykes’ Bigfoot, Yeti and the last Neanderthal
Sykes himself badly needed a anthropologist, a wildlife biologist, an anatomist or zoologist, folklorist, and probably a psychologist to set him straight in areas where he was way out of his knowledge zone. I contend that we aren’t dealing with a zoological enigma here, but a cultural one (or more than one) and this book strongly supports that claim. Various informed views should be consulted.

Sykes handed researchers a big letdown regarding their wing-and-a-prayer samples, but also provided a path forward for them. If there IS evidence out there, it can be collected and, if certified, convincing to the world.


The New Farn Shark Attack of 1862: Fact or Fiction?
One of the earliest recorded fatal attacks (although there must have been plenty during the millennia of previous Aboriginal activity in the Moreton Bay region) took place in December 1862, but it has to go down as ‘unconfirmed’ because there was no official record created. It involved Aboriginal people, who at the time were still ‘outside the system’, so there was no death certificate, no police report, and no cemetery funeral to be had.
