"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

A 'monster' is found lurking in the depths of Loch Ness...but bizarre shape spotted by a robo-sub is actually a long-lost film prop
 

- Kongsberg Maritime's 'Munin' drone has imaged the bed of Loch Ness

- 'Most in depth survey' has found no evidence of a rumoured deep trench

- There were hopes the monster could be hiding in an deep part of the loch

- However, more results of the survey are expected to be released soon

Why do we need to look for Bigfoot? (2010)
 

Fictional as these creatures probably are, they serve their purpose psychologically, Sharf said.

"We need these stories to teach us about what we are going to come against in life and how to overcome it"...

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.

Playing the Ghost
 
The elaborate nature of the costuming and the care taken by the hoaxers to create a sense of theatre around their exploits gives us an insight into how important this sense of transgression was to hoaxers who routinely risked arrest, disgrace and vigilantism to ‘become’ ghosts. What better way to challenge class, Enlightenment values and the social order than to become a symbol of death (in some cases literally, given the high toxicity of phosphorescent paint) to terrify people beyond reason.

Loch Ness Monster hunter insists we're the closest we have ever been to proving Nessie is real
 
"I think what is in Loch Ness that has caused all these sightings is animate and there is more than one, which is backed up by the sightings and those of similar creatures in other Scottish lochs and lakes around the world.
 
"It may well be a cat fish, it might be a sturgeon or a giant eel. Something like that offers the most plausible explanation so far, but until we find a carcass or somebody catches something we are left guessing. That is part of the mystery..."

Meet a newly discovered family of snail-chomping carnivorous Australian marsupials
 
“Uniquely among mammals, it appears to have had an insatiable appetite for escargot — snails in the whole shell. Its most striking feature was a huge, extremely powerful, hammer-like premolar that would have been able to crack and then crush the strongest snail shells in the forest."
 
The ferret-sized marsupials were found in an area which has been producing regular amazing finds.

Searching for the Yowie, the Down Under Bigfoot
 
In addition to animals, there are numerous other possibilities: hoaxes, including those of a diminutive man who wore a hairy suit with bicycle-reflector eyes; claims made by persons with fantasy-prone personalities and by ubiquitous attention seekers; real wild men, like a bearded, naked, mentally disturbed man mistaken for a Yowie; and many other possibilities, including simple hallucinations and apparitional experiences. For example, “waking dreams” that occur between wakefulness and sleep may explain some cases of persons waking to see a Yowie looking at them. Again, like sightings of ghosts—typically seen when the percipient is tired, performing routine work, daydreaming, or the like—a Yowie’s image may well up from the subconscious and be superimposed on the visual scene.

HAS NESSIE BEEN WASHED UP? Grisly ‘skeletal remains of the monster’ found on the Loch Ness shore but is all it seems?
 
It is claimed a dog walker stumbled across the bizarre sight on the banks of Loch Ness, Scotland, yesterday afternoon.
 
Some, however, have called into question the authenticity of the image saying it is strange the remains still had the internal organs intact. With many pointing out they would have surely rotted away when the flesh did.

World’s Leading Sasquatch Researcher and Chronicler John Green Has Died (1927 – 2016)
 
As a journalist and publisher, Green had access to a variety of British Columbia news. He had written a fictional April Fool’s story about Sasquatch in 1953. But he first asked seriously about Sasquatch in 1956 when Swiss-born René Dahinden entered Green’s office to inquire about two-legged upright creatures, like the Abominable Snowmen, reported in the area. Green told Dahinden the accounts were nonsense.

Female Yowie sighted
 
Eaglehawk is a film that takes us into the woods to come face to face with the mythical Yowie - but not as you might imagine. Beneath the costume of the Yowie is a young woman who is finding her own voice while ambushing those who are determined to believe in her existence.

Pocatello man’s Bigfoot hoax gets international attention
 
Shortly after the original video went viral, a Bigfoot investigator from Utah even visited the site in Southeast Idaho where the footage was shot to obtain physical evidence. The investigator allegedly obtained footprint and hair samples from the scene and featured the investigation in a 40-plus minute YouTube video of his own.
 
When the videographer heard that the investigator was looking to have the hair specimens analyzed in a laboratory, he decided it was time to reveal the truth.

If Bigfoot Were Real
 
[T]he data we have at the moment – this includes tracks, hairs, vocalisations, photos, and the innumerable eyewitness accounts – provides support for the notion that Bigfoot is real, and have come to the conclusion that it is a sociocultural phenomenon: that people are seeing all manner of different things, combining it with ideas, memes and preconceptions they hold in their minds, and interpreting them as encounters with a monstrous, human-like biped.

The Man Who Created Bigfoot
 
“They can’t exist, therefore they don’t exist,” is the message Meldrum has received from skeptics, he says. “That was the actual retort hurled at me by an anthropology colleague.”
 
With Bigfoot having grown into an industry, Long says there’s no reason to believe anyone invested in the debate is telling the truth. “They need it to be real,” he says. The people who truly believe and search, he adds, “are driven emotionally, I believe, to find Bigfoot.”







 

Whatever happened to the Loch Ness monster?
 
Today, 80 years after Nessie was first “sighted”, the band of believers in this mythical creature is dwindling...
