In Search of Monsters

My newly-posted Lair of the Beasts article at lists the top three expeditions of the cryptozoological kind I’d like to go on if I had the chance.

It starts like this…

“Now and again I get asked something along the lines of: ‘What strange creature, which you haven’t yet searched for, would you like to chase down?’ Well, it’s a good question. The world is a very big place and there are a lot of weird beasts out there. But, there are a few specific and amazing animals I’d like to go looking for which, so far, I haven’t had the opportunity.

“Imagine coming face to face with a ferocious, carnivorous monitor lizard with a length of somewhere between fifteen and twenty feet – maybe even closer to twenty five feet – and a weight in excess of at least a ton.

“Not in times long past – since the creature under the microscope is widely assumed to have become extinct around 40,000 years ago – but right now, deep in the heart of the sub-tropical rainforests of Australia. You think it couldn’t happen?”

And here’s the rest of the article, and the lowdown on those three…

    I think the cryptid which I would most love to look for would definitely be the Arica Monster, a dinosaur-like beast reported from northern Chile and southern Peru.

    I have also written about these cryptids on my cryptozoology blog. So if you would like to know more information about them, you can read my blog. You can visit my blog by clicking on my username.

    Anything is possible but folks are just so jaded now a day that even if one crept on up and looked them square in the eye they’d not believe what they saw. And who’s to blame them with all the hoaxes it’s quite sad as it so pushes the whole field of Cryptozoolgy to the back of the line far as research goes.

    Cryptozoology is not tongue in cheek but that’s how most scientist, educators & “intellectuals” view it.

    Troodon56 & Nick keep blogging on dudes! Right on!

    I’d really like to mount a search for the most elusive beast of all – a politician running for office who makes promises he actually intends to keep…..

  5. BronzeSteel responds:

    That would be one awesome and frightning creature to stumble upon.
