Assquatch Taxidermy

Assquatch and Other Taxidermy Oddities

The newest Bigfoot-related story making the rounds on the social media newsfeeds lately is the Assquatch – a taxidermy creation using the hindquarters of a deer (anus and all, apparently) to make Sasquatch faces.

Monkey on the Loose in Massachusetts

Monkey on the Loose in Massachusetts

I’ve always been fascinated by out of place animal stories. There’s just something so subtly unsettling about them. Because ultimately, they can’t all just be escaped circus animals or exotic pets.

Finding Jay – Review

Finding Jay Directed by Jay Bachochin Like so many of us, I currently find myself at home, in isolation. The world is a truly scary place right now.

Expedition Bigfoot on Travel Channel

“Expedition Bigfoot” Coming to the Travel Channel

It’s been just a little over 2 years now since Finding Bigfoot aired its final episode, and in that time, there really hasn’t been a suitable cryptid-hunting show to take its place.
