Monsters of the Deep by Nick Redfern

Monsters of the Deep – Book Review

Monsters of the Deep by Nick Redfern I’ve never really shied away from the fact that when it comes to cryptids, I’m probably least interested in those of the aquatic variety. Lake monsters, sea serpents, and other anomalous water-based creatures just don’t typically hold my interest. And to be totally honest, I’m not even sure why. […]

New Loch Ness Monster Photograph?

New Loch Ness Monster Photograph?

Last week, I wrote about the giant squid that washed ashore in South Africa, and how interesting it was that I was concurrently reading Nick Redfern’s new book, Monsters of the Deep. Well, today my feed is abuzz about this new photo allegedly showing the Loch Ness Monster, which is obviously also covered in Nick’s […]

Giant Squid Washes Ashore in South Africa

Giant Squid Washes Ashore in South Africa

Synchronicity is a funny thing. All week, I’ve been reading an advance copy of Monsters of the Deep, the new book by Nick Redfern which covers all sorts of sea serpents and lake monsters, and then I come across this story about a giant squid washing up on a South African beach. Of course, sea serpents […]

International Cryptozoology Museum Needs Your Help

It’s not often that I would use this platform to ask for help with something, but this is a cause I believe in and I’m going to do my best to get the word out there. If you are at all interested in Bigfoot, the Loch Ness monster, el chupacabra, Mothman, the Jersey Devil, the […]

Lagarfljótsormurinn sea monster

The Lagarfljótsormurinn, the Loch Ness Monster of Iceland, Captured on Video?

So it seems like I picked a good week to come back from my self-imposed hiatus from the site. Lots of good, juicy, and all around dumb paranormal stories to pick from. And so little time. So let’s start with the Lagarfljótsormurinn, a Loch Ness monster-type creature that is said to reside in Iceland. Apparently, a […]

Issie, the lake monster of Japan

Issie: The Matriarch Sea Serpent

For this week’s cryptozoological tale, let’s travel to the islands of Japan for a rather somber yarn. As you might already know, some folklore is rooted in profoundly sad origins. So goes the story of Issie, Japan’s most mythical water-dwelling creature. Way back before she embraced her fate as a legendary sea serpent–a heavy burden all […]

Science Teacher Finds 18-Foot Oarfish Off Catalina Island

The ocean really is the final frontier. We’ve been to the Moon (unless you’re a conspiracy theorist who thinks we haven’t been), but we’ve barely studied the oceans, mainly because of how vast and deep they are. People have been talking for centuries about sea serpents and giant squids, and it has just been recently […]

New Photograph of the Loch Ness Monster May Just Be a Rogue Wave

It seems like cryptozoology is plagued by bad photographs, and even the term “Blobsquatch” was coined to describe those oh-so-fuzzy photos of an amorphous something in the woods that might be Bigfoot, or might just be a tree stump. And while there have actually been some interesting photos and video of Sasquatch, I really don’t […]

Mysterious Sea Creature Washes Ashore in Scotland

So far, this week has been ripe with stories of incredulous speculations about normal, everyday things. From a man calling 911 over Bigfoot “proof” to ufologists claiming to have seen a rat on Mars, a lot of conclusions have been jumped to. Improper grammar aside, here is the latest story of people thinking that a […]

Loch Ness Monster Expert to Discuss Findings

I’m usually pretty bored by lake monsters as a cryptid, as I just don’t see much evidence to support their existence, and most photos of the alleged monster either look like obvious fakes or waves in the water. But I do think a statistical analysis of Loch Ness Monster sightings would be interesting, and similar […]
