Maine’s Great Sea Serpent: Fact or Fiction?

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on April 7th, 2014

You might still hear about a UFO sighting or two in Maine – or maybe a report of a large beast in the woods. But it’s much less common to hear modern accounts of the sea serpent. There was a time, though, when such sightings were much more common, and reported by upstanding citizens. In the latest installment of our occasional series, Maine’s Hidden History, Maine Things Considered host Tom Porter turns once again to Portland historian Herb Adams.

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.

Prehistoric Survivor Paradigm Under Fire?

Posted by: Scott Mardis on March 14th, 2014

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.
