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.

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on March 4th, 2015

Does that Bigfoot standing amongst the trees in the park look suspicious to you? Be careful … it may be luring you into a trap. Not a trap to put you in a human zoo or pot of boiling water but a scientific experiment designed to see how people react to Bigfoot encounters.

Wrong-Footing A One-Legged Mystery Snake From China

Posted by: Karl Shuker on April 15th, 2014

Some zoological photographs are so bizarre that long after they first hit the news headlines, they still continue to circulate online, like restless ghosts doomed to wander forever down the highways and byways of the worldwide web, resisting all attempts to expose them as hoaxes or explain them as grotesque yet nonetheless natural phenomena. One […]

It Came From the UFO? The Creature-Lights Connection

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on March 10th, 2014

One question I hear a lot from radio callers, blog readers and conference attendees is whether I think that unknown, upright canine creatures are related to UFOs. It’s actually a concept that’s been around for some time and is also asked in regard to Bigfoot and other cryptids. My usual answer is that while I don’t have any reports from witnesses who’ve seen a dogman hopping directly off a UFO (although I know there are a few cases where people have claimed this about Bigfoot), it just so happens that places where mystery creatures abound are also often UFO hotspots.
