One of the most perplexing sagas in the fascinating chronicles of cryptozoology is the long-running search for the thunderbird photograph, supposedly missing, presumed lost, for over a century.

Monsters No Longer Have Cooties!

Posted by: Chalupacabra on November 7th, 2014

They’re in, they’re hip, and suddenly (after thousands of years) they rule pop culture. Up until recently, telling someone you were into monsters and cryptozoology was not a shortcut to popularity. But things are changing. Monsters are taking over TV, starring in more movies, as well as appearing on beer labels and hipster T-shirts.

Huge Prehistoric-Like Bird Observed

Posted by: Nick Redfern on November 5th, 2014

There has been a long history of giant bird sightings in Pennsylvania. The term “Thunderbird” has been used to describe these generally very large, normally black or dark brown birds with massive wingspans. Not all of the descriptions of these flying cryptids however are the same. Some witnesses I have Interviewed in past years have stated that what they saw looked more like a giant bat.

Others reluctantly told me what they observed looked more prehistoric and similar to a pterodactyl or teratorn. More than one person told me that the huge flying creature they saw could only be described as a dragon. And yes, some who have witnessed these creatures have hesitantly used the term gargoyle.

Posted by: Nick Redfern on October 24th, 2014

“Pilots on a holiday jet were left stunned when a ‘flying man’ whizzed past their aircraft at 3,500 feet. The mystery man flew within 100 meters of the plane and left the pilots baffled as to how he was moving through the air, as neither could see a canopy suspending him.”
