Colorado Jackalope.

We don't see 'em much here in the mountains, but down in the sage and juniper country near the New Mexico border they're overrun with 'em.

This one was a 5X4, and a Boone & Crocket record for Colorado.

Wreckage of U-boat sunken by 'sea monster' found off UK

The headline is a bit misleading. It could be the wreckage of that particular U-boat. But here's the good stuff:
According to the old tale, the U-boat commander -- Capt. Gunther Krech -- said the submarine had been cruising on the surface of the water to recharge its batteries when a "strange beast" rose from the sea with "large eyes, set in a horny sort of skull." Krech said the animal had a small head, but with "teeth that could be seen glistening in the moonlight" ... The story goes that the sheer size of the beast was so immense that it forced the U-boat to list and the crew began shooting at the monster until it dropped back into the sea. The captain said, however, that during the course of the fight the forward deck plating had been so badly damaged that it could no longer submerge.

They 're a bit leaner here in Texas. I guess it's the heat.

Many sightings also in Austria. Only young, beautiful women are able to see the Wolpertinger, if they, joined by a trustworthy young man, walk through the woods during a full moon night.

It has been told, that in former times some women weren't that beautiful and some men weren't that trustworthy, but nevertheless took the risk of sleep deprivation and getting lost for to see the Wolpertinger :wink:

Seems Bigfoot's been prowlin' around in my neck of the woods (FredS's ole stompin' ground): Footprint leads to search for Bigfoot near Kansas City suburb

Why, you ask, would Kansas City be a place where Bigfoot might be hiding out? Bigfoot expert Tom Biscardi answers:
"The caves that you people have in Kansas City, they’re phenomenal because these are the places where these creatures love to have to habitat"

Man finds "mysterious creature resembling a dinosaur with flesh still on its bones"

What could it be? A mummified mongoose? An deformed goat fetus? A dinosaur?

The article is from Dec 2017 and mentions tests being done on it, but I haven't found anything about test results yet...

Tail is way too long for anything like a goat. Something in the mustelid family is probably a good guess.

I read another article where someone speculated it could be a deformed goat :lol:

I think it might be some kind of mustelid as well, but I think it was sensationalized because they interviewed (the original Indian paper) a paleontology student who, while denying it's a dinosaur, stated it did look like a theropod. But I'd still like to know what the tests say.

Are these 'Yeti' footprints? The Indian Army says so
The army said the footprints, measuring 32 by 15 inches, were spotted on April 9 near the base camp of Makalu on the border of Nepal and Tibet, the world's fifth highest peak.
