Mysteries To Boggle the Mind- Monsters II
Cryptozoology is basically studying and searching for animals whose presence and existence have yet to be scientifically proven. It's a fascinating field and new animals and species are discovered all the time. Some studies say as many as 6,000 to 19,000 new species are discovered every year.
Of course not all of these species would be considered monsters, but there certainly are a few being searched for that I would consider monsters. So let's get to it!
Idaho Video and Pictures of Footprints
Ah, we all know the mystery and legends surrounding Bigfoot, also known as Sasquatch. Many believe that if such a creature existed we would surely know it by now. Then there are those that have seen the vast untouched wilderness in certain areas of the country and believe there's a big possibility that a large creature could hide itself away for years without any problems in such areas. Let's look at some of the evidence collected.
Videos and Pictures of Bigfoot
There have been several supposed videos shot of Bigfoot, but without actual physical evidence, these videos are not enough to prove their existence. If you'll notice, when experts examine these videos, they are either able to disprove the video or unable to disprove them. The video never proves, only disproves.
Some amazing and recent videos of Bigfoot have been shot. Including one very recent shot by students from Idaho traveling through the Mink Creek area. This video has gotten a lot of recent media attention and has sparked many new investigations in the area. The students have granted several interviews and all claim it's not human and it's not a bear. The video has even been claimed to be the most important evidence since the 1967 Patterson video. It will be interesting to see what these new investigations turn up!
Casts of Footprints
Footprints have been found in many many places. Many times, casts of these footprints by carefully pouring plaster into them then letting them harden. These casts are often examined by foot experts or podiatrist to see if they are human or perhaps hoaxed. Some of these casts are so good, foot anomalies and injuries can be seen. The experts can often tell if the creature or individual was flat footed or how they walked on their feet. Can this type of thing be hoaxed? Well sure, but when you think about the location some of these footprints have been found (like in the mountains next to a creek in the middle of winter), and sometimes the distance the footprints go, it becomes much more compelling and would be one heck of an elaborate hoax.
There have been a few hair samples out there analyzed that have come back as unknown. One such hair sample was collected by the MonsterQuest team. The results came back as most likely in the ape category but unknown species. This is huge since most hair samples taken come back as another species all together. Does this prove their existence?
Chupacabra in Texas?
The Chupacabra is a legendary creature that is believed to prey on live stock. The name "chupacabra" actually stands for goat sucker. It is believed this creature sucks the blood of animals.
Eyewitness Reports of Chupacabra
Eyewitness accounts are some of the strongest evidence acquired for this creature. There have been several reports of people seeing the beast preying on their goats or cattle in the night. In fact, the first eyewitness accounts came from Puerto Rico where 8 animals were found dead and drained of all their blood. It is said puncture marks were present on the animal's chests and neck areas.
Many eyewitnesses claim the creature is gray to black in color and can fly. Some reports even say it changes color. There have been eyewitness accounts of the creature all the way up to Maine. Scientist however consider this creature a modern legend.
Pictures and Video Evidence of Chupacabra
Though many have thought they've found or recorded evidence of the Chupacabra, it generally turns out to be a canine type animal of some sort. Often times these animals have severe mange, making them strongly resemble some of the descriptions given to the Chupacabra. At least this is what experts claim. Many believe some of the creature seen and recorded are so strange in appearance there is no way they could be dogs or foxes with mange. To the right is some of video and pictures taken. Do they exist?
