What appeared to be the corpse of an extraterrestrial was found in Russia … and so far, scientists have no idea what it is! The tiny body has a distended skull, talon-like feet and an elongated body … making many people think it looks like something from a sci-fi or horror movie. Two locals claimed to have found the corpse by a river near the town of Sosnovy Bor (sas-NAH-vee bore), which is located in close proximity to a nuclear power plant. Researchers studying the creature say it is neither fish nor fowl, and does not display a neck or wings. A biologist claims that extensive analysis will have to be conducted before the creature can be identified. Could it really be an extraterrestrial?
Wildlife experts were baffled by a mysterious beast seen roaming about the Los Angeles area. The large, catlike creature was caught on video by a security camera as it ambled through the city of Norwalk.at night. The grainy images seem to show an animal that is thought to resemble an African lion. There have been no further sightings of the critter since it was recorded on video in 2014 … and city officials do not consider it to be a hoax.. Experts have ruled out the possibility of the creature being a mountain lion … but other theories suggest the animal might be some sort of hybrid dog … or some animal species that has never been encountered!
Not Quite Extinct? (Thy-la-SINE)
Although it was declared extinct more than 80 years ago (1936), sightings of the Tasmanian Tiger are still reported. Some newly-released footage shows what some people believe to be the actual animal! The video was captured in 2008 by the ‘Thylacine Awareness Group of Australia’. Neil Waters, the group’s founder, says the animal in the video is definitely a thylacine … although it could represent a subspecies of the critter. The animal displays characteristics of the Tasmanian Tiger … including a thick neck and stocky build … and a long, stiff tail that stays motionless, unlike a dog’s tail. Did you know Thylacines were the largest known carnivorous marsupials in modern times? The last one was thought to have died at Tasmania’s Hobart Zoo in 1936.
Now You See It
A mysterious figure was captured in a photograph … and pictures of it were posted on Reddit in an effort to identify it. While the uploader did not take the pictures, they were taken in quick succession at night …at an unidentified location. The first picture displays an empty lawn with a full moon visible. The second picture shows what appears to be a small, goblin-like creature standing on the lawn. The uploader claims the photos were taken no more than two seconds apart … And the object was not visible to the photographer, despite seeming to have been about 10 feet in front of them. Yet, whatever it was apparently produced a shadow … which would rule out a smudge on the camera lens. The uploader claims that no editing or digital tricks were employed by the family that took the pictures. No one seems to have come up with a definitive answer … yet. What do you think?
A Russian research team captured footage of a strange creature lumbering through the woods in the southwestern part of the country. A large, dark figure can be seen emerging from snow-covered trees … then disappears after a few moments. While there’s some dispute of what the animal might be, the team says the creature is a Yeti! Residents of a nearby mountainside resort claimed to have seen the creature … and described it as big and shaggy … but not a bear. Before shooting the footage, team members say they heard a crunching sound in the snow … later, they found huge footprints in the vicinity of which they took a plaster casts. The prints were pressed up to six centimeters (more than 2 inches) deep in the snow … indicating that the creature could weigh approximately 200 kilos (440 pounds). Reports suggest the prints could not have been made by a human. The footage, along with casts of the footprints have been turned over to local scientists for further analysis.
