Are This Zoological Myths and Mysteries Even Real?
We probably are not talking about Ariel and Triton here, but there have been reports of mysterious pseudo-humans living in water for thousands of years. There are even cave drawings on the edge of the ocean floor long dry in the Egyptian desert, which seem to represent a group of ordinary people old two-legged being threatened by creatures with the torso of people and fish tails and are wielding spears. One of the current theories of these creatures is that they are a hiccup of evolution that occurred when our simian ancestors wandered to the edge of the ocean and eventually just wandered right on in. It is believed that sirens cooperate with the deep ocean animals to hunt for food and stay out of sight of humans. Just do not tell folds.
9. The Yeti
This is not your happy-go-lucky friend Frosty Christmas. The Yeti is also known as the abominable snowman, as it is often the white version of Bigfoot fur that tends to live in snowy climates. There is nothing like walking outside to get a good breath of fresh air and enjoy a blanket of freshly fallen snow only to discover that snow bank, you were focused on is actually a thing monkey height of eight feet. As sirens, there are signs of observations Yeti since before recorded history.
8. Loch Ness Monster:
Nessie is perhaps the most beloved of all zoological mysteries. Apart from that it could be a dinosaur left by the end of their world slipping around in the inky black loch just waiting for a fisherman distrust down the drain, and you have a pretty romantic story. Hundreds of years worth of accounts speak of a huge creature in the water, but never one. Could this be the oldest and the most solitary creature of mystery forever? Many people spend their lives not only to find Nessie, but to determine what it is and how many others there. She, of course, is not a unique story. There are monsters apparently similar to New York and Canada.
Literally “goat suckers,” these interesting little monsters from Latin America, but have recently traveled their way to the North as well. Legends America began when a whole herd of eight sheep were discovered dead. They each had three puncture wounds in their chests and were completely devoid of blood. Chupacabra is generally described as being the size of a small bear or large dog with spines on its back and scaly skin, reptilian. in North America description changes a little more like a coyote or other wild dog, but with the same points. Apparently, this creature jumps like a kangaroo and will take care of the animals in order to suck all their blood.
6. Giant Sloth:
It is a mystery that is not so much a mystery, but a big question mark. There are real paleontological evidence which shows that ridiculously huge versions of cute animals, super-slow existed in prehistoric times. Now ridiculously huge is not an exaggeration. We speak of a skeleton of an animal that looks exactly like the lazy that we know and love, but is twenty feet from his head to his tail and belong to an animal weighing 4 tons. That’s over 8000 pounds! The question is that there are people who claim to have seen one of these uber-extinct mammals supposedly roaming around Georgia and the Amazon rainforest.
While this may seem like the title of a horror movie 50 years long lost, these mysterious creatures are actually the most convincing evidence of unidentified sea monsters. Huge blobs of goo to keep up on beaches around the world. These balls are generally described as the fibrous collagen, and sometimes have distinctive features like tentacles, gills, and even mouths. One theory is that many of the blobs less like animals are actually decomposing blubber, but there was DNA testing that completely refuted this theory in many situations. So … super huge octopus? Shockingly big squid? Ginormous jellyfish? Or unidentified goo sea species?
4. Mongolian Death Worm:
This creature is quite maintained compared to other monsters on this list. But even with only two to five feet long, the worm of death is nothing to sneeze at. This bright red worm is said to squirm around the Gobi desert spitting acid which instantly kills any living creature it touches. Some reports even say that this super-worm can discharge and electric shock as another way of disabling and removing prey.
This zoological strange head-scratcher is so cool they made a movie about him. All the buzz of the Mothman began in 1966 when stories of a huge winged creature with bright red eyes started pouring in. recounted in the book “The Mothman Prophecies” by John Keel and then later turned into a movie of the same title these stories became the basis of a cultural phenomenon. Called the Mothman because Batman was so popular at the time, no, not kidding, the creature was seen in the coming months. Around this time, people also reported UFOs and “Men in Black” in the same area. Observations fell on virtually nothing and some experts thought if perhaps all the fuss was about a crane sand that was lost.
2. Skunk Ape:
The name just says it all, does not it? The response of the Florida Bigfoot, the Skunk Ape is said to wander through the swamp. It looks well, a monkey. It is the smell that really lets people know it’s around, though. Said if rank you can feel almost a mile away, it is a miracle that there is really no doubt that creature. Unlike Bigfoot in other parts of the country, the skunk ape is said to be thin and have brownish-gray fur. There are not really explain why this creature feels as bad as him. Except, perhaps, that he lives in a swamp.
1. Honey Island Swamp Monster
This is a much cuter name the first fact the same animal as the skunk ape. This, however, is said to inhabit swamps, especially Honey Island Swamp in Louisiana. Witnesses describe a seven-foot tall, two-legged animal with gray hair and bright red eyes. The huge footprint in place and have found so-called four webbed toes. Even better than the possibility of a real monster swap is a local legend that surrounds it. Residents say that in 1900 each train traveling through the area where it crashed. On the train was a traveling circus and circus chimpanzees escaped into the marsh. There, they met with the local creatures alligators. This, they say, created the swamp monster.
