Swamp Stalker

In the marshy swamp land of Texarkana a legendary beast has hunted the residents of a small Arkansas town. Their story was immortalized in a well known movie, The Legend of Boggy Creek. The real events were a series of violent nocturnal attacks that left behind not only fear and panic, but also remarkable tracks. But the evidence is not just confined to history. Scientific clues continue to this day, and point to a malevolent monster that stalks the Deep South, with physical encounters by trained trackers and discoveries of tracks and scat. The strongest evidence will be examined using the latest scientific testing and two MonsterQuest teams isolate the search area using both kayaks and horse-back, penetrating deep into territory that may be the home of the swamp stalker.

Killer Jellyfish
The most venomous creature of the sea is on the move and spreading across the oceans leaving a trail of baffled scientists and poisoned victims. These gelatinous monsters, which have been known to kill within three minutes, have been part of the ocean’s ecosystem for more than 500 million years. However, changes to the seas and global warming may mean that mankind himself is creating this population explosion. Blooms of these floating death traps have been reported from New York’s Hudson River to the beaches of Spain and have even shut down a nuclear power station in Japan. While little is known about many jellyfish species, new research is unravelling some frightening details: these creatures are not simply drifting blobs, but have an intelligence that proves that they are an apex predator of the sea.

Loren Coleman About Loren Coleman
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.

    Although I don’t quite consider this a total “cryptid,” I’ll be more than happy to give this a try. I also count my blessings that in all probability I will never come in come in contact with a Giant Jellyfish. Even ordinary jellyfish can kill one under the very right circumstances. I shudder to think what one of these could do.

    Hm. I have trouble thinking of jellies (biologists are trying to ban “jellyfish” as misleading), dangerous through they may be, as an apex predator. Not when sea turtles munch on them with impunity. And as to ascribing intelligence to them, that really seems like a reach.

  4. norman-uk responds:

    I hope monster quest is aware of the chance that the jelly fish might mutate, come on land on rainy nights and after a gyre and gambol, slythy tove like, turn us all into greasy lumps of jelly fish ambrosia !

    Even while we speak!

    Better to put them on the human menu- they already are in China or Japan.

    Well there goes my vacation plans. Back packing in TexArkana and swimming across the Atlantic ocean are definitely out.HaHaHa…
