However huge footprints of apparently the Yeti have been found high up in the mountains by professional climbers where it is very unlikley anyone would go to fake footprints as its too high and difficult so he thinks something like that probably exists. If Mr A says that then I beleive it. 


Well, which is more likely? That the yeti exists or the footprints are fake?

Footprints in snow would be very easy to fake. I don't think that it's very sound logic to say that the yeti exists just because Attenborough thinks that climbers wouldn't do this kind of thing.

People were convinced that the 'surgeon's photograph' of the Loch Ness monster proved it's existence because they thought a doctor would not lie. Guess what? He lied!

Or a shitty costume.

Although I am the ultimate skeptic (everything in the spooky thread purported as being real, for example, is bound to have a very boring and earth-bound explanation to it), I think cryptids are about the only part of paranormal research that I think holds any validity.

Not that I'm saying I believe in bigfoot/the yeti/sasquatch, or the chupacabra, or Nessie, but there are bound to be loads of weird and wonderful animals still waiting to be discovered, either in the darkest depths of the ocean, or hidden away in some in accessible jungle.

I'd say that there is still more out there waiting to be found in terms of new species than we REALLY know about.

I mean, who the hell ever thought they'd see one of these??

Much as I don't think it's a prehistoric reptile, I find the Mokele Mbembe case to be far more interesting than Nessie.

Having said that, a few years ago an American crypto investigation team went to the Congo and interviewed literally hundreds of eyewitnesses and, whilst they and their accounts were credible, after closely analysing the data the investigative team surmised that many of the descriptions of the animal (and prints that were found and documented) sounded very much like a hippo (an animal that most of the witnesses would not have come across before). This was further backed up when the team went back with photos and pictures of hippos and most of the people they interviewed identified it as Mokele Mbembe. There were, of course, still a few accounts that ruled out hippos and some of the witnesses identified hippos correctly when shown photos and said that that was nothing like the creature they had seen, so still some mystery.

This was all from a sci fi channel documentary series a few years, the name of which escapes me now, but it was quite good - a different subject every week and the team was made up of both believers and skeptics, proper scientists and biologists, wildlife cameramen and a couple of special effects guys, so they looked at it from literally every viewpoint.

As I've said before, whilst I'm massively skeptical about everything and think that ghosts, UFOs and aliens are far fetched bollocks, cryptozoology is one of the few areas of the unexplained/paranormal that I find holds any possible credence, mainly because I can easily believe that there are species of animals out there that have evaded humans for hundreds of thousands of years, waiting to be discovered, especially as nature is destroyed and the world gets smaller.

Hmmmm.


Both that and the "mammoth" are totally fake.

With the river worm thing, it's obviously an animatronic or a simple jointed model (like one of those toy plastic snakes we all had as kids) being dragged through the water - look at the angled joints in the body and how they move. Not natural at all.

The mammoth is a not very good computer animation - check out the water foam round it's body as it's moving (it never changes) and you can see the lower front legs showing through the water (which, if real, would be impossible from that distance and angle given the flow of the water) towards the end of the video.

I would agree with that - the "trunk" is silvery, but then so are the sides/undersides of a salmon/trout. I would imagine that, if it were an actual mammoth, the trunk should be the same colour as the rest of the mammoth.

Quite obviously a bear with a fish in its mouth, as has already been said.


I wish they'd hurry up and clone a mammoth, though.

My god man, has Jurassic Park taught you nothing about the inherent dangers of cloning extinct animals?

As for this lot, the mammoth is, as already said, a fishing bear and I would doubt that the "river worm" even has any DNA to clone.
