T-Rex Found, Alive in New Guinea

Updated on March 2, 2013

Papua, New Guinea

The Island

The Island of Papua, New Guinea is no stranger to stories of mysterious creatures, from a huge ape like man to a Mothman who could fly.

Although the island is only 285,000 square miles in size, it is covered in dense jungles much of which no man has yet stepped.

It is no surprise, that in such a setting, mysterious stories abound but the latest one has been taken more seriously than most.

Lake Murray



In December 1999, a group had set off to fish on Lake Murray. Their day was cut short when one of the party called to the others to turn around. According to them, what they saw was: a massive figure, Dinosaur like, up to its knees in the water coming out of the fog.

Needless to say, they did not need a closer look and so turned and fled.

The next day, a preacher and a religious elder saw the same thing. They however, were able to give a more full description.

The length, stride, small arms and large facial features were all the same as those of what scientists describe as a Tyrannosaurus Rex. Of special note was that the teeth were said to be longer than a mans fingers, which is also comparable to those of a T-Rex.

When researchers showed local villagers pictures of Dinosaurs, they all pointed out T-Rex saying that, that one lived over there, pointing in the direction of Lake Murray.

Still Alive?

Dinosaur or Ghost?

Some say that they do not believe that T-Rex could have continued to exist from the cretaceous period. However from 1994-2004, there were repetitive stories possibly confirming the existence of a Pterosaur like creature, on Umboi Island, again in New Guinea. If one could have survived, then perhaps both could.

Another theory that has been put forward is even more unbelievable. Some say that the T-Rex is stuck in a time loop, destined to keep reappearing from time to time.

As to whether this T-Rex exists or not, I do not know but I am sure that as Papua, New Guinea becomes more accessible, it will reveal some other mysterious secrets.

      If true the time loop or something similar theory would probably be correct as if not mistaken T-Rex only roamed parts of North America.

      Jonesy0311, they DID find away to survive the lesser oxygen levels. They evolved. Now we have a new name for them. Birds.

      Great story. I pride myself on being well-versed in the strange and unexplained and I have never heard of this account. Forgoing possibilities that deal with time warps, I imagine that it is entirely possible that extinct species still exist in areas like this. I have heard the argument that the oxygen levels on Earth today could not support such massive creatures. Of course, with 65 million years of evolution, I'm sure they could have figured it out. Or as they said in Jurassic Park, "Nature finds a way."

      rafken, this sounds like a trailer for a Spielberg movie. You have some very noteworthy stories that need to be told. Bravo!
