Nessie by Ian Bremner

Most Convincing Photo of the Loch Ness Monster Yet?

I have said in the past, numerous times, that I don’t believe in the Loch Ness Monster. At least, I don’t believe that the things people are seeing that make up the legend of Nessie are necessarily caused by a prehistoric plesiosaur that has survived into modern times. But people are seeing something, so obviously […]

Bigfoot Hoaxer Tries to Prove Bigfoot is a Hoax

I had a pretty busy, aggravating day at work today, and really needed a good laugh. And then I stumbled across this: a press release about known Bigfoot hoaxer Tom Biscardi presenting a radio show that would prove once and for all that the Patterson-Gimlin footage is a hoax. I’ll let that sink in for […]

The Year In Review: 2015 – Part 1

A 2015 Year in Review in March of 2016? Yes I know I’m late to the party on this one, but there are reasons. Honestly, I initially wasn’t going to do a Year in Review, because my blogging fell off tremendously, and I was dealing with a lot in my personal life. But I did […]

Yeti at Spanish Ski Resort?

When most people talk about the Yeti, certain images come up: white, tall, hairy, humanoid figure. But a very specific location is always associated with it: the Himalayas. In any other region, this creature is almost always described as having darker fur (I said almost – there are exceptions). So one would think that a […]

Loch Ness Monster Legend Inspired by Earthquakes?

Cryptozoology is a quirky field. It’s a rogues gallery of creatures, ranging from clever hoaxes and mythological misidentifications to beasts that leave interesting but frustratingly ambiguous evidence. And I’ve always felt that the Loch Ness monster fell somewhere in the middle of those spectrums. Sure, there’s lots of eyewitness testimony, and it goes back hundreds of […]

The Loch Ness Monster: Hoax Anniversary and Google Street View

So if you’ve used Google today (and if you haven’t, how do you manage?), you’ve no doubt seen the little animation commemorating the 81st anniversary of the publication of the most well known photo of the Loch Ness Monster, the so-called Surgeon’s Photo. Taken by Dr. Robert Kenneth Wilson and published in 1934 , the photo seems […]
