Man says he has proof of bigfoot,sharks and millipedes in the news

Faces of Kansas City: Man says he has audio proof of bigfoot's existence
By Laura McCallister, Multimedia Producer By Brad Stephens, Anchor  LEXINGTON, MO (KCTV) -
One man said he's a now believer that Bigfoot or Sasquatch is roaming remote areas of the United States, including an area in Missouri, not that far from Kansas City.What Scott Nelson hears in his headphones is strange, disturbing and unexplainable all at once."Yes, I've heard him speak. And you will hear him speak here in a moment," Nelson said when asked if he thinks Bigfoot exists.

Great whites 'not evolved from megashark'
By Nick Crumpton Science reporter
A new fossil discovery has helped quell 150 years of debate over the origin of great white sharks.Carcharodon hubbelli, which has been described by US scientists, shows intermediate features between the present-day predators and smaller, prehistoric mako sharks.The find supports the theory that great white sharks did not evolve from huge megatooth sharks.The research is published this week in the journal Palaeontology.

World's leggiest millipede put under microscope

The anatomical secrets of the world's leggiest creature, a millipede with 750 legs, have been revealed by scientists.The species, called Illacme plenipes, was first seen 80 years ago but was recently rediscovered in California.Now researchers have found that as well as bearing an extreme number of legs, the creature may have more in common with millipedes that lived millions of years ago than today's species.The study is published in the journal ZooKeys."It's a kind of mythical creature in the millipede world," said Dr Paul Marek, an entomologist from the University of Arizona and the lead author of the paper. In 2005, Dr Marek and his brother discovered some of the leggy arthropods lurking under boulders in the mountains of California. Until then, I.plenipes had not been glimpsed since 1926.A paper published in the journal Nature outlined the rediscovery and described the creature's basic biology, but the new research looked at the creature's anatomy in much more detail.
