Garry Liimatta’s “Sea Monster” Eyewitness Sketch

Posted by: Scott Mardis on March 18th, 2014

Recently on Cryptomundo, attention was brought to the alleged “sea monster” 8mm film taken by the late Garry Liimatta (1944-2012) in May 1969 off of Vancouver Island, B.C., Canada.

Whatever it was, it appears to have been relatively large. Liimatta described a large turtle-like animal with an 8 foot long neck. Little known is that he also made an eyewitness sketch.

Monsters and Myths: I saw Caddy!

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on March 15th, 2014

The Story

It was fine fall day in October 1933 when W.H. Langley and his wife set out for an afternoon’s sail near Victoria. Their boat had reached the point of Discovery Island when they made a discovery of their own. A greenish-brown creature, later named Cadborosaurus, was travelling quickly in front of their boat. In a CBC interview, Mrs. Langley recalls that she wasn’t afraid, merely interested. “It took my fancy that it wasn’t anything we’d seen before,” she says.

Prehistoric Survivor Paradigm Under Fire?

Posted by: Scott Mardis on March 14th, 2014

We must remember that the best case for most cryptids at this point in time is based on ambiguous, circumstantial evidence and any possible connections to extinct animals are tenuous at best. Assuming the bulk of descriptive and photographic evidence might be correct and bear some resemblance to a known fossil form, we should not overlook the remarkable phenomenon of convergent evolution. It’s within the realm of possibility that some recently evolved animal, unknown to us in fossil form, has developed features similar to some well known extinct forms.

Putting the Kibosh on Prehistoric Survivors?

Plesiosaur Peril and the Prehistoric Survivor Paradigm

Posted by: Scott Mardis on March 11th, 2014

Vertebrate paleontologist Darren Naish has posted a wonderful article on the probable behavior and lifestyles of plesiosaurs at his Scientific American blog, Tetrapod Zoology. This is obviously of interest to those in cryptozoology with questions regarding what we know about real plesiosaurs versus speculation about “long necked sea monsters”. Dr. Naish himself does not endorse the “relict plesiosaur” theory but is open minded to the giant long necked seal idea.

Alaskan Marine Cryptid Update

Posted by: John Kirk on February 27th, 2014

In 2009, Kelly Nash and his sons Kyle and Jasen obtained footage of a group of unknown animals that were pursued by a pod of beluga whales in Nushagak Bay, Alaska.

I promised readers of Cryptomundo that I would continue to try and ascertain what happened to the missing footage of the animal that was a remarkable fit for a living, breathing version of the Naden Harbour carcass.

Abominable Science! Authors Interviewed

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on August 10th, 2013

Q: How widespread is the belief in cryptids such as Bigfoot or the Yeti?

Daniel Loxton: Much more widespread than the fringe reputation of the topic suggests. For example, when asked “Do you think Bigfoot (also known as Sasquatch) is real?” in a 2012 Angus-Reid poll, 7 percent of American respondents affirmed the belief that Bigfoot “Definitely is real,” and 22% said Bigfoot “Probably is real.” That’s a more-or-less typical response to polls about cryptid beliefs. And that adds up to an awful lot of people.
