Is this the Kraken?



Has a KRAKEN been spotted on Google Earth? Monster hunters claim to have found 120m long giant squid-like creature
    Used Google Earth to find size of creature which showed 30m (100 feet)
    Sighting occurred on April 9, 2016 using 63° 2'56.73"S 60°57'32.38"W
    Said it must be the Kraken, but also looks like a Plesiosaur
    Another theory is this disturbance could be an underwater UFO
Nordic folklore speaks of a massive creature that haunted the icy seas of the North Sea, where it attacked passing vessels with gigantic tentacles.And conspiracy theorists claims to have spotted this mythical Kraken swimming off the coast of Deception Island near Antarctica.Using Google Earth, this sea monster appears to be 120m from head to end, with ‘the mid area of a giant squid’.

Lake Edward Creature

The monster that haunts the Lake Edward area

It is said that there is a monster in Lake Edward called the irizima; which apparently means 'the-thing-that-may-not-be-spoken-of.' The indigenous people who live near Lake Edward in Zaire refer to it as a "gigantic hippopotamus with the horns of a rhinoceros on its head. "The lake is said to have an average depth of 111 m/364 ft. It is has good fish stocks is said to be free from crocodiles.
Some describe the creature as a gigantic hippopotamus with the horns of a rhinoceros upon its head, others say the irizima is a marsh monster with a hippo's legs, an elephant' trunk, a lizard's head, and an aardvark's tail. The creature seems to have been seen in many places around that area of Africa.
The story goes that Lewanika, King of the Barotse, saw the beast in the marshes of his land, and set a special warrior watch to capture it. 'A monster,' says he in his official report to the British Government, 'with a head like a snake, making a huge track in the reeds as large as a full-sized wagon would make were its wheels removed.'
J.E. Hughes in 1933. wrote in his book “Eighteen Years on Lake Bangweulu” that the Wa-Ushi tribesmen had killed such a creature along the Luapula River, between Lakes Mweru and Bangweulu. It is described as having a smooth body, without bristles, and armed with a single smooth horn fixed like that of a rhinoceros, but composed of smooth white ivory, very highly polished.
In December, 1919, the London Daily Mail published a letter from C.G. James, who had lived in what is now Zambia. He reported that there was an enormous beast with a single ivory horn living in the waters of Lakes Bangweulu and the surrounding lakes and swamps. James said this animal was called "Chipekwe" by the natives. The same creature is also mentioned in both Millais’ 1924 book “Far away up the Nile”
So what is or was this mysterious creature? It appears to live in more than one place in the area. Some say it is a quiet hervibore others that it attacks other animals. Could it be more than one species of creature? That would explain the differing descriptions. It sounds like a hybrid of two other creatures but whether a hippo and a rhinoceros would mate is debateable. Certainly one to add to the pile of unexplained and intriguing tales,

Lake Temiskaming Mugwump

Lake Temiskaming Mugwump- fish or something else?

Lake Temiskaming in Quebec is a deep lake around 720 feet at it’s deepest point . A lake monster known as "Mugwump."is said to inhabit the lake.
The first published story of it appears to be by the then mayor of New Liskeard Jack Dent. In an April 20, 1979 he wrote an article in The North Bay Nugget newspaper in which he discussed the creature. According to Mayor Dent:
“… the Indian word, “mugwump” means fearless sturgeon and is all part of a very old Indian legend from an old Indian…”a direct descendant of Chief Wabi” who told him the mugwump was reputed to be the length of four Indian braves. Putting the average height of a brave at about five feet… concluded the mugwump was probably over 20 feet long…”Mayor Dent said he had only heard of the animal in 1969
Then in February 2, 1982 an article appeared by Alice Peeper in The Temiskaming Speaker, a Mrs. Kate Ardtree recalled her father telling stories about the animal as a child. Mrs Ardtree was elderly at the time so the story must have been from 1920’s or 1930’s. Mrs. Ardtree had never seen the animal herself. “…Sure I know about it, or should I say them?” she smiled. “I well remember my daddy talking about the monster.” Mrs. Ardtree also remembers her Dad bringing home one of its scales when she was just a girl. The scale was as big as a saucer and the family had it around the house for years….”
Dariene Wroe then wrote in the August 9, 1995 issue of The Temiskaming Speaker about the story of John Cobb. Cobb , then 83 years old, recalled an event from the early 1940’s when he worked on the tugboats moving logs along the lake.
“…One night I was coming up just about dark and I seen the darn thing in the lake.” He describes a creature about 20 feet long with a round head and nose like an animal’s. “I didn’t know what it was. When we come up close it disappeared…”
Then Chuck Coull outlined his encounter with a strange beast in the lake to journalist Mike Pearson in 1979. He claimed it happened in the early 1960’s:
“…We were cruising around in the boat, about a third of the way back from Burnt Island, when we saw what looked like a deadhead. We pulled up to it. It rolled over and swam away…. It was the biggest sturgeon you’ve ever seen… I’d been hearing about the thing all my life….”Chuck Coull was with his father at the time and estimates the animal sighted was around 8 feet long.
The Temiskaming Speaker also had reported that in 1978, Ernie Chartrand and his wife, who lived in the town of Haileybury, were seated at a table in The Matabanick, a local Hotel, where they had a good view of the lake. Their attention was drawn to "something" that was moving shoreward at a very fast pace. As it was nearing the shore, it did a sudden and complete turnabout and headed out back to deep water. Both Mr. and Mrs. Chartrand had noticed that this "thing" had a large humped back, and they noticed that it had no fins along its side or back, as itswam away. According to The Speaker, Ernie stated that it must have been 15 feet long. He further stated that he will go on record anytime as to his sighting of the Lake Temiskaming monster” (The Temiskaming Speaker February 3, 1982)
Another article by Alice Peeper of the The Temiskaming Speaker appeared February 17, 1982. This time it was the story of Roger Lapointe and Dan Arney who were ice fishing at the time in a borrowed hut.
According to Roger Lapointe and Dan Arney of Cobalt,the two men decided to try their luck at ice-fishing so they managed to borrow a friend's ice-fishing hut for a night.They had just settled in, when their tip-ups started to agitate in an alarming manner. Hauling the lines in, they discovered their bait and lines were missing. It looked like they were sheared right off, the men had reported later. Resetting the line, they settled back with a brew and were wondering what was stirring in the depths below the fish-hut, when in about 20 minutes, or perhaps half an hour, their tackle flew right up in the air and then vanished down the hole. The men were dumb-founded! "To hell with this," Lapointe relates, "Let's pack it in", and Arney agreed. They were donning their parkas, when Arney said he could feel the small hairs on the back of his neck stiffen (this sixth sense had served him well in the RCMP back a dozen years). Arney said he just knew that something was watching them as he reached out and put a silencing grip on his partner's arm and they began to survey the half-dark interior of the hut. Looking downwards at the fishing hole, they saw a black, glistening head with protruding eyeballs, and one of these eyes was staring fixedly at the men "like it was sizing us up for a snack", Lapointe remarked. When Arney shouted, "Let's get the hell out of here", he lost no time in following him out the door. They leaped aboard their snow machine and raced for shore. When contacted about their experience, both men agreed there was "something" out there in the lake, alright.
Another sighting of the Lake Timiskaming monster has been made by John Sheur of New Liskeard, who claims he saw the monster quite recently. Mr. Sheur says he was locking up his ice-fishing hut for the night, when he heard a crunching noise. Knowing he was the only fisherman still out on the lake, he decided to see what it was about. Thinking it was probably a dog, he almost walked into a long, dark animal, that seemed to be wrapped about several of the ice-fishing huts and was chewing something, said Sheur. What did its head look like? the reporter asked. Something like a dinosaur, said Sheur, "but I didn't stay for a second look." Sheur had dashed for shore on his snow machine and, rushing into a local hotel, tried to get several men to go out and investigate. Two men finally decided to go take a look, but all they found was a rather snake-like trail in the snow. They also noticed that one of the fish-hut doors was wide open. Someone had forgotten to secure it, so the men closed it against the drifting snow. Mr. Harmon of Haileybury, who has an ice-fishing hut near where the incident occurred, said it was the darndest thing that he had been losing line and fish left out in the snow. He presumed it was stray dogs, but now he's not so sure!
So what is it? Well a sturgeon would not come ashore on the ice so could it be our old standby a giant eel? Or could it be more than one creature lives in the lake? It is deep enough to hold more than one large predator, so perhaps there is a large sturgeon and something else in the deep waters.

Mini Water dragons born



Meet the underwater 'dragons' that can live to 100
The strange, slithery creatures inside Slovenia's Postojna cave were once considered living proof that dragons existed, prompting locals to give it a wide berth.Now, large crowds from all over the world have been queueing up to witness the extremely rare hatching of the mysterious olms - ancient underwater predators that can live up to 100 years and only breed once in a decade.Their treat came yesterday when the translucent larva broke through the delicate egg envelope after four months of nervously monitored gestation The birth, caught on live camera, is nothing short of "a miracle", cave spokesmen said."A mere two baby olms successfully hatch from 500 eggs in nature," they said in a jubilant statement.Found primarily in Balkan cave rivers, the protected eel-like species has been living in the Postojna cave, 50km southwest of the capital Ljubljana, for what researchers say is millions of years.

Angler hunts the legendary Lusca sea monster.

Multiple giant craters on the floor of the Barents Sea is believed by scientists to be the reason behind the mysterious disappearance of more than 8,000 people in the Bermuda Triangle. A famous angler is now seeking to unravel the mystery of disappearing swimmers in the Bahamas.
Jeremy Wade, the angler, is on a hunt for a sea monster which, according to Caribbean legend, is as ferocious as a shark and has the grip of an octopus. Called Lusca, the creature allegedly could slurp people from the surface of blue holes surrounding the Bahamas.
Wade, who shares his adventure with TV viewers in an episode of Animal Planet’s "River Monsters" which airs on May 5 at 10 pm, says that based on his investigation, the creature is possibly a giant octopus.

The Lusca is a sea monster described as half shark, half dragon, half octopus or an evil spirit depending on who tells you.It lives in the blue holes off an island in the Bahamas and grows to over 75 ft (23 metres) .
On January 18, 2011, the body of what appeared to be a giant octopus washed ashore in the Bahamas. Reports suggested the remains were not complete and only a portion of the head and mouth parts of the creature were there. Locals said the creature would have been 20 or 30 feet when alive.Witnesses claim they have seen   boats suddenly being pulled below the waves above the Blue holes. The wreckage of the vessels raises to the surface with no sign of the crew.
So kraken ,giant octopus or a natural phenomena caused by the blue holes? Lets hope Mr Wade returns to tell us.

Victoria Resident Claims Encounter with Bigfoot-Like Creature

Posted on Apr 16 2016 - 4:42am by Cryptozoology News

AUSTRALIA — A man claims he recently saw an 8-foot bipedal creature in Southeast Australia. The Victoria resident, who provided a full name but requested to remain anonymous, told Cryptozoology News on Saturday that he was hiking in Mount Pilot March 12 when he spotted the undetermined creature.
“I was looking for a photography opportunity,” he said. “I was walking alone, up the trail. There were trees on either side and it was approaching dark. Further up the trail, I heard a large animal moving through the undergrowth.”
The 26-year-old store owner added that he suddenly saw the animal running across the trail and that it then disappeared.
He described it as an 8-foot creature walking on two legs with long arms and a short neck. Its body, he said, was “covered in a shaggy brown hair”.
