The Lake Windermere monster known as Bow-nessie (Bownessie) has been seen again, less than a wek after being spotted and photographed by a couple kayaking.
Holidaymaker Brian Arton described seeing something ‘dark with humps’ sitting 300 yards out on the surface of Lake Windermere.
And he said it exactly matched the picture taken five days earlier by kayaker Tom Pickles
A couple kayaking on Lake Windermere have photographed what they believe to be Bownessie (Bow-nessie), the legendary Windermere Lake Monster! The mist was swirling eerily over the lake. In the half light of morning the visibility was patchy, and the air had an unusual chill. Nothing stirred. All around was silence. Oh, what a perfect […]
The Loch Ness monster was believed to exist according to a 1930s declassified document. In 1938, the chief constable of Inverness-shire raised concerns about protecting Nessie from hunters! In a letter released by the National Archives of Scotland (NAS), he wrote: “That there is some strange fish [creature] in Loch Ness now seems beyond doubt.” […]
Schoolgirl angler Jessica Wanstall netted a record when she hooked this monster fish that was more than twice the size of her. Jessica was nearly dragged into the water when the catfish weighing nearly 200lbs took her bait. The plucky youngster spent 20 minutes fighting the beast and needed a helping hand from dad Mark […]
Following on from yesterdays post “Very Weird Unknown life form found in Sewers!“, Cryptoworld can now confirm that is it REAL, but probably not what you’d expect! It turns out to be nothing more than Bloodworms (Tubifex tubifex), which are small red worms that live in fresh water! Bit of an anticlimax, but still a […]
Everybody has gone Champ (lake monster) mad after a video was posted on YouTube which clams to show something in the lake at Oakledge Park in Burlington, Vermont. Interestingly the owner of the video has said I put this up because it was strange, not because I think it is “Champ.” So if it’s not […]
If you look closely at these “Capture the Truth” adverts for Sony’s new (expensive) camera(s), you will see the telltale signs that you have indeed, captured the truth! The Nessie ad is obviously based on Surgeon’s Loch Ness Monster photograph – although unlike Surgeon’s model/submarine, Sony has gone for an inflatable alternative.
February has now passed, mad March is here and signs of spring are everywhere. Around the 1st of every month I plan to post a quick list of the most popular stories from the previous month. This months list includes Giant Snakes, UFOs and Tasmanian Tigers. 100ft-long ’snake’ Photographed in Borneo An alleged photo of […]
Ok, well to be honest the Guardian does have a point, the recent photo of an alleged 100 foot long snake cruising a river in Borneo has sparked huge debate and more importantly concern for locals living along the river – but it is “probably” just a fake, isn’t it? Helen Pidd, author of Borneo’s 100ft snake stretches the truth, seems to think […]
In my office I have a small mountain of boxes that contain all sorts of weird and wonderful material. Yesterday I sat down and went through one of them trying to catalogue the contents. I failed miserable because I ended up reading everything instead of just organising it in to categories. What I did find though, […]
This is great, probably just a retouched photo, but it was allegedly taken by a member of a disaster team monitoring flood regions by helicopter. It is said to be Nabau, a giant snake the size of a drum and more than 100 feet in length! The photo claims to shows Nabau cruising along the Baleh River in Kapit. Local villages who live […]
We are already in February, so I thought it was about time I posted a few links to some the most popular stories/articles from 2008. Below is the Top 5 most viewed stories. I’ll post another short list of the most commented and perhaps even the least viewed stories soon. 4 new Thylacine sightings […]
A university lecturer and his wife have told of their surprise and subsequent horror at seeing what he can only describe as a Loch Ness type lake-monster in Lake Windermere.
Steve Burnip and his wife Eileen saw the serpent-like creature from the popular Watbarrow viewpoint at the north-end of the lake.
Most of you by now would have heard about this years CFZ expedition to Gambia, in search of Dragons! One of the dragon-like beast they are searching for is locally known as Ninki-Nanka, which apparently translates as Dragon-Devil, but there is also some reference to suggest it could just mean Snake, that’s if you search […]
The CFZ (Centre for Fortean Zoology) have left the UK and arrived safely in Gambia for their 2006 expedition. The six man (4 male and 2 female) team are looking for the dragon-like creature, known by locals as the Ninki-Nanka. The Ninki-Nanka is said to be a giant reptile, possibly as large as 30 ft […]
