Posted by: Craig Woolheater on July 3rd, 2015

The remains of an unidentified sea animal with fur on its tail have been washed ashore in the Far East. Found near the airport at Shakhtersk, on Sakhalin Island, its appearance is unlike anything ever found in Russia.

Judging from the remains the creature was giant and about twice the length of a human, and it had a huge nose like a bird’s beak.

Exploring American Monsters: Connecticut

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on June 24th, 2015

One of the first thirteen British colonies in North America, Connecticut revels in American patriotism, demonstrated by its nickname the “Constitution State.” Heck, its state song is “Yankee Doodle.” Although it’s the third smallest of the United States by area (110 miles long and 70 miles wide), it’s the fourth most densely populated, and, with 1.9 million acres of forestland, Connecticut can still hide plenty of monsters.

Exploring American Monsters: Colorado

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on June 17th, 2015

Known for its Wild West history, and great skiing, Colorado also boasts a wealth of dinosaur fossils, is the birthplace of Frank Welker (the voice of Fred from Scooby Doo), and a variety of geography, such as high plains, most of the Southern Rocky Mountains, and desert. The perfect habitats for Bigfoot?

Well, sure. Colorado has a long history of Bigfoot encounters, but “Exploring American Monsters” isn’t about well-known cryptids like Bigfoot, it’s about bizarre hidden monsters like the Slide Rock Bolter.

Exploring American Monsters: California

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on June 4th, 2015

Humans have lived in California for at least 15,000 years. In 1848, The United States acquired the area that would one day become the state of California for $15,000,000 after signing the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo, which ended the Mexican-American War. California, famous for Hollywood, the Golden Gate Bridge, and earthquakes, is the most populated state in the union, and the third largest after Alaska and Texas. Outside the large cities (16.37 million people in the greater Los Angeles area) lie great expanses of desert, mountains (including Vasquez Rocks Natural Area Park where Capt. James Kirk battled the Gorn in Star Trek), and forests. Despite the number of people, there’s plenty of room in California for monsters.

Champ Challenge

Posted by: Katy Elizabeth on May 17th, 2015

You probably are aware of “Champ” the legendary sea monster of Lake Champlain, often dubbed the American Nessie, referring to Scotland’s Loch Ness Monster. Though no concrete evidence exists, no one has disproved him either. Hundreds of people, spanning several centuries, claim to have seen Champ, though descriptions do vary. Champ has been described as being anywhere from 10 to over 150 feet long. Some sightings claim to have seen humps, some claim Champ is snake-like. Some have seen a horse-like head, while others have seen horns or antlers. The famous Sandra Mansi photograph, taken in the late 1970s, provided a visual view of at least something and experts, who examined the photo, claimed it was not a fake.

Mythic Creatures: Dragons, Unicorns, and Mermaids

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on March 23rd, 2015

Dragons, Bigfoot, chupacabras, unicorns, mermaids. These legendary creatures have captured imaginations, inspired art and culture, and spurred wild speculation. In the new exhibition Mythic Creatures: Dragons, Unicorns, and Mermaids, opening at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science on Friday, March 20, the world’s most enduring fantastical beings come to life through dazzling statues and models—such as a unicorn and 17-foot-long dragon—and are examined more critically through real fossils and cultural objects that have created generations of lore.

The Camp Fircom Caddy Carcase – Monster or Montage?

Posted by: Karl Shuker on March 9th, 2015

Few cryptozoologists will be unaware of the Naden Harbour carcase – an enigmatic serpentine animal carcase removed from the stomach of a dead whale at a whaling station in Canada’s Queen Charlotte Islands in July 1937, and thought by some cryptozoologists to have been a juvenile Caddy, the elusive sea serpent of Cadboro Bay, British Columbia. Today, this mysterious carcase is long-lost, but three famous photos of it still exist. Far less familiar than the Naden Harbour carcase photographs, conversely, are two Caddy-linked pictures that were first brought to my notice 20 years ago. To my knowledge, they had never previously received any cryptozoological attention, and even today they remain little-publicised.
