Long lost mysterious creature finally revealed

Here in this hub we are finally going to get to see a long lost mysterious creature finally revealed to the world. We find that in this modern world today in which we all live in, there's still a lot of mystery out there that we have not figured out yet. We still don't know all that there is to know about our oceans on this planet. There's a lot left to be discovered in the depths down there of our many different oceans. There's never been enough physical to prove or disprove the existence of the Loch Ness monster, but somethings out there in that deep dark lake and that's for sure. No one has ever captured a big foot or Yeti (Abominable snow monster), but again there's definitely something lurking out there in those dense woods and forest. The world is full of mysterious creatures. Take the allusive Whip-poor-will bird for instance. We hear them singing all night long, but when we try to sneak up on them at night, they stop singing, and we can't find them to get a look at them. You can take my word for it on this one too, because I've tried sneaking up on them in the dark with my flashlight off. However when I think I'm directly right under them and turn on my flashlight, they always shut up and stop singing. To this day I've never ever seen a live Whip-poor-will. (I think I'm spelling the name of this bird correctly, but if I'm not please forgive me.) We won't even think about touching on the subject of UFO's here.

I've always been skeptical about these unknown mysterious creatures, until just the other day. After a long hard day at work, I came home to find something mysterious awaiting me upon my arrival. There was a small package with an egg inside of it. I've always heard about people ordering baby chickens and ducks through the mail, however I've never been one of those to try that sort of thing out.

I realized at first after I looked at it, that it wasn't either a chicken's egg or a duck's egg. It was much bigger, and on top of that it was also pink in color. It kind of reminded me of an Easter egg, but I know bunnies don't come from out of eggs. Along with the pink egg there were some very strange directions. Instead of putting the egg into a nice dry warm incubator, it instructed me to put the egg into a container of cold water. So that's exactly what I did.

After several long days the egg began to crack, and something slowly emerged from inside of it. I wasn't sure if it was even from this world at first, but then I realized that I had seen this sort of creature before. I'd never seen one up close before. I had always seen them standing in people's front yards, and I've heard they are all over the place in the state of Florida, but this is the very first time that I've actually been this close to one. They have a rather hard skin when they mature. They don't make a single sound, and they pretty much stay put in one place. Normally where ever you place them, you'll find them in the exact same spot the next day. Oh yeah, I almost forgot to mention that they are all pink in color.

I'm really not sure what their name is, so I just named my new little edition - Emily. So far Emily hasn't hasn't eaten a single solitary thing, been any problem, or made a mess. The perfect all around pet! Now you'll know what to do if you ever come across one of these little pink eggs. I hope this little hub has helped shed a little light on one of the mysteries in this world for you all, and yes I was bored. Thank you for stopping by and visiting!

Do you think that I might sometimes have way too much time on my hands.

I have never seen one of these 'instant' flamingoes before. Really a strange creature..no doubt :) Interesting but weird hub.

You are too funny and have too much time on your hands. LOL

I enjoyed reading this story, though. Emily turned out to be a lovely "creature".

From the title I thought this was about the mother-in-law. Then I saw the top picture. Definitely the mother-in-law on holiday in Torremolinos. Why's the DIY ost- er, touc-, no sorry flamingo in your garden? Do you live in Florida? Not much good if it doesn't lay eggs for the breakfast/dinner table - always a consideration when importing our feathered friends into the household. Next best thing is the pigeon, but then again the telephone put paid to them (unless there's a war on and there's no other way to get through to your neighbours, aside from putting on your boots and visiting them).

As for cleaning tyres, I never do that (certainly didn't when I had my 4X4). Maybe you do have too much time on your hands - I'd like to borrow some of it if you have.

Doing well, Hole Story. A bit of levity now and then don't hurt!

Awesome! You really had me hooked at the title; then I had to see where things were going after the first paragraph. Well written, well paced!

That was a pretty cute story, and yes, it is a Whip-poor-will. I have never seen one, either, so you are not alone.

Believe it or not aviannovice that's the correct spelling for a Whip-poor-will as well. I looked it up several times, and this was the spelling that always came up. You can Google images of the Whip-poor-will, and get an idea of what one of these birds looks like, but that's still not the same as seeing a Whip-poor-will up close in person.

I thought that you were going to say that you had uncovered the Loch Ness Monster or Yeti or something like that.

But a pink egg which you cannot ID? It may be some type of Florida fish/sea creature. I voted this up+++, shared and pinned it.

When I was a child I saw this picture on a news paper, it stated that it was a mysterious sea creature incidentally captured by a camera. No body new whether it was a real image or not. When I saw your hub I was extremely excited that at last mystery is going to be revealed but alas I still have to wait. By the way nice story with a surprising end

I was also all atwitter, because I grew up by Lake Champlain, and we have our own sea serpent in that lake. Speaking of birds, last fall here in Michigan a fancy pigeon showed up in our back yard. She?? I think she's a she, is white with lovely brown wings, a black tail and beige ruffly feathers around her ankles. (Do birds have ankles? Does anybody care?) Anyhow, she seemed to like to be around people, so we assumed she was domesticated, although she didn't want to be touched. She soon took up residence in our garage where my husband keeps the bird seed for our backyard visitors (Bird visitors, that is). We didn't know what to do- we normally have a horrid winter here, and we were afraid she would freeze to death outside. So my husband, Bill went to a bird store and bought a big cage, and we trapped her in the garage and brought her in for the winter. She lives in the corner of our computer room, and if we open her cage door she comes out and flies around the room. When it's time to shut off the lights, we motion to her and she flies back into her cage. Our grandchildren named her Paige Pigeon. I write children's books, so a friend of mine saw her the other day and said "I see a new book."
