Indeed they are, Incanus. Although, I seriously doubt that Nessie is going to turn out to be some giant dino-swan!


The dino-swan!   Don't go giving them ideas now, Wil.

EDIT: by the way, in Africa there's the equivalent of Nessie, known as the mokele mbembe.

Timon, I don't suppose you remember ever seeing a picture of an animal like the Thuderbird or Pterodactyl being nailed to a wall with cowboys around it?

It was in a book I read at primary school and I cannot for the life of me find it online.

Kind of - but the "bird" was nailed to a barn door and the picture looks like it was taken in the Wild West period.

I hope I'm not making this up.I remember looking at it and freaking out a little.

That was a great film!

No this thing came from an "Unexplained Mysteries" type book. Details beyond that are pretty fuzzy.

Here is an interesting article what people originally thought to be a sea reptile

http://www.paleo.cc/paluxy/plesios.htm

Also anyone seen footage of something big going across a congo lake. It was taken in 1987 by the japanese ifrom their helicopter/plane. I only seen it on a BBC wildlife program and can't find the footage on the net.

Interesting stuff.... just found this on wikipedia. A list of all the supposed monsties out there. confirmed and unconfirmed!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_cryptids




That list is hilarious. 3 confirmed cases! One is a genetic mutation that created a wooly cheetah and the other is a polar/grizzly hybrid and another is a white killer whale (another genetic mutation).

Not exactly like finding a unicorn, is it?!



A CHALLENGE?! What is your wager, sir?

I have always quite fancied those hounds you acquired for fox hunting, yes, hmmm? If I find the unicorn, I win those hounds, but if I do not, you may have my first-born daughter! Are those terms acceptable, fair sir?

Not cryptozoology but in the same vein...that 'bizzare paranormal malarky' vein, the Nasca Lines! (I was watching Indy 4 last night...)

Weren't the Nazca lines proven to be ceremonial routes traced on the desert floor by the local indians?  There was a documentary a couple of years ago about it.  As the climate changed and the place became one of the driest on the planet, the routes were walked pretty much constantly to try and appease the gods, hence their marking the desert with images of their gods.

Did anyone else see the pic of the giant snake from Borneo?  It was in today's Independent and is alleged to be 100ft in length (though there are question marks about its veracity)

It's hard to actually say proven, as it's still all theory. But, it's the more widely accepted theory at that. Who knows?

I would frackin' LOVE it if giant saucers came down, spilled out the greys/ Reptilloids( ians? ) all wearing turquoise shell suits and said " Boy, you were waaaaaay off! "

I just have to wonder why alien civillisations with presumably near the speed of light craft would insist on people making large pictures on monkeys on the ground.

For a giggle? No-one ever thinks that extra terrestrials have a sense of humour. It would explain why they insist on only kidnapping rednecks from America's deep South.
