For more on this carcass found a few days ago located near Southold, New York, see here.
These folks seem to consider this new one a candidate for the old one, but I can’t see it. Nor can I get my brain around all the “germ warfare” talk. But here it is. You can read it on your own and make up your mind.
These are all turning out to be common animals decaying on the shorelines of the Atlantic, and I’m not spending too much time here on this one.
At Wikipedia, it notes:
“Cryptozoologist Loren Coleman at Cryptomundo first coined the name the ‘Montauk Monster’ on July 29, 2008.”
True enough. Okay, I can’t hide. Blame the name but not the “thing” or “things” on me.
I coined the term “Montauk Monster,” which now appears to be a genre, and that should be enough.
It will be up to others to create websites and find this year’s new mundane animal carcasses that will be labeled the most recent Montauk wonder. These things happen.
Thanks for the “body down” notice from Jason Pritchett. I would have said a “heads up,” but in this case, I’m not sure anyone can see that part of the anatomy too well.
Consider a contribution today to the International Cryptozoology Museum, for your support is needed to forestall foreclosure (May 30, 2009). Merely click to…
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.
