"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

The Ozenkadnook Tiger Photo Revealed as a Hoax
 
If there is truth to this particular hoax claim – personally I suspect there is – maybe more details will turn up in time. As always, we must remember not to accept confession-type stories all too easily (and thus be guilty of confirmation bias). But, there we are… I feel that are we are, indeed, edging towards the resolution and closure of this particular case...

YOWIES!
 
YOWIES! is an interrogation of our own whiteness and privilege. As young Australians we are looking to negotiate our identities against an establishment that has benefitted us and oppressed others. Using the yowie as a symbol of a shared Australian truth, the work uses puppetry and installation to replicate the yowie environment and interrogate our place in that space...

Mysterious reports uncovered of the ‘Gorillas of Eden’
 
“Stories of strange animals are well-entrenched in Australian folklore. Reports of tigers, panthers and pumas are common throughout the south coast, but perhaps the strangest of all these tales are reports of hair-covered, man-like monsters,” he said...

Ohio science professor explains why Bigfoot likely isn't real
 
Wilson said the myth persists because it's a tale that's easy to fake. Human perception is easily fooled, he said, so it's difficult to rely on what people say they see, especially if they already believe in Bigfoot and are looking for evidence to support it.
     The Bigfoot industry is also profitable, Wilson said, with television shows, conferences, equipment and tours geared toward the creature...

LU Professor Discusses Bigfoot
 
Boston’s interest in Bigfoot began when one of her colleagues assigned a paper to her students about primates, and about half of the papers were about Bigfoot.
     Naturally, everyone wants to know one thing: is he real? “It is possibly plausible there is a Bigfoot,” says Boston, noting that there isn’t any empirical evidence to assert that he is, in fact, real. But, according to Boston, people will still try to investigate to prove that Bigfoot exists...

BEST NEW UK BAND OF 2016 AND THE PHENOMENON OF BIGFOOT HOAXERS IN NORTH AMERICA (2016)
 
It's about this time of year that we columnists at MetalTalk usually talk about what we think are the best upcoming bands on the scene at the moment and what were the most rocking events of last year.
     But if I may digress for a moment, what is going on in the mountains and woods of North America? There is certainly something odd going on there and I don't think it's Bigfoot...

What is Bigfoot and how many sightings have there been of sasquatch?

Legend of Bigfoot started in Humboldt County
 
“June Beal told the Times-Standard that she’d been mum on the topic for nearly five decades, even as she watched it spiral out of control,” Driscoll wrote. “Finally, with Wallace’s death, she was willing to share her secret.”
     Beal was quoted as saying: “They (her husband and Wallace) were in on this hoax. It was just a fun thing and the fun got out of hand.”

Drop bears target tourists, study says (2013)
 
“By-products of the interaction between chemicals found in Vegemite and those found in human sweat repel drop bears,” Volker says. “Most Australians eat Vegemite at least once a day, so they permanently exude these chemicals through their skin and are thus protected.”
     Drop bears are also thought to be able to discern Australian accents, and seem to be less likely to attack people who have them...
