Lizard Men

FeaturedLizard Men

The Lizard Man, or Lizard Men, are not a specific type of cryptid, but the term is used instead to describe a broad spectrum of bipedal hominid-like reptilian people. There are many sightings all over the world. Some examples would be the intulo of South Africa, the Cherufe Lizard Man of South America, the New Jersey Gator Man, Loveland Frogman of Ohio, Lizard Man of Scape Ore Swamp, Canadian Lizard Man, Nagas of India, Kappas of Japan, and the Lizard Demon in Wood County, West Virginia. There have been many theories as to how these Lizard people came to existence. Some theories suggest that they are living dinosaurs, a form of evolution in which a reptile hierarchy continued to evolve along the same path as the early primates. Other theories suggest that they are reptilian aliens, and that many UFO and alien abduction cases have made notes of the fact that people have claimed that the aliens were reptilian-like. There are many other theories to why these reptile-people are coming to our planet and living among us,  but with so many reports of these being living amongst us you have a reptile person right beside you.

Nightcrawler/Fresno Alien

FeaturedNightcrawler/Fresno Alien

The Nightcrawler (no I’m not talking about the cute devil mutant from X-Men) , or the Fresno Alien, is an elusive cryptid that’s made just two appearances so far one being in Fresno, California and the other being in Yosemite National Park. In both of the sightings the only evidence was video footage. It shows the creature to be relatively short (about 4 feet tall), is extremely thin, white, with no noticeable arms. It seems to be either wearing a white cloak of some sort.

According to certain groups of Native Americans in the surrounding area the Nightcrawlers have existed for a long time and come from a planet that consists mostly of swamp. It is thought that their long legs help navigate the terrain. They are believed to be here to assist in an “awakening” to help rebuild the connection between man and nature and to bring peace back to Earth.

They seem to be gentle creatures that mean no harm to us and this planet. In fact, bringing peace back to Earth would be amazing. Hopefully we’ll see more of these humanoids sometime in the near future.

Beast of Bears

Beast of Bears

The Beast of Bears is a cryptid creature found in Southern Texas, Florida, Virginia, and possibly Arkansas. It resembles a very large bear with scars and missing patches of fur. It’s mostly seen near swamps and sometimes deep woods. It’s described as having a strong smell of alcohol and rotten eggs. It has large red eyes and possibly has gills.

The first sightings were back in 1973 on October 12th at a camping spot near the town of Alice, Texas. Ever since the initial sighting over 31 sightings had been made of the cryptid and the most recent one being May 1st, 2012 in Crestview, Florida. There is no evidence saying it’s a hoax, and there are Inuit stories of giant bears that would drown people and eat them. It could be truth that a giant bear lurks in the woods and swamps. We may never know.

Fur-Bearing Trout (Hoax)

FeaturedFur-Bearing Trout (Hoax)

The fur-bearing trout, also known as the beaver trout, is a trout that possesses a thick coat of fur to keep it warm in the extremely cold northern waters it lives in. It was obviously since fish do not typically sprout fur and they are already adapt to the waters they live in.

According to the legend, it was first encountered by Europeans who settled in Canada and talked about many furred animals and fish in the lands and was asked to specify the fur fish and so it became to be the fur bearing fish. Now they are many mounted up on walls all through the Great Lakes of North America as a little tribute to that. There are some cases where fish will seem to have fur, but that due to a disease called saprolegnia which causes what looks like little tufts of fur.

Air Rods

FeaturedAir Rods

These tiny little flying creatures have been a mystery to many for decades now, and there still is no real answer for their existence. These air rods, which are also called “flying rods” or “sky fish”, are kind of the equivalent of crop circles to everyone, even the skeptics. They show up on every type of camera around the world when they do decide to appear. No one really knows what they are. No one knows if they are living creatures, aliens, or just camera malfunctions. To those who believe strongly in cryptids they believe that air rods are living creatures, and are possibly related to the older stories of atmospheric beasts that once flew through the skies as they do now. To skeptics, these air rods are merely pieces of flying debris, insects or even birds being filmed under strange conditions that would produce that type of effect.

Air rods were first discovered around the 1990s in various types of film. People studying these anomalies found many in thousands and thousands of films and found thousands of types of these critters in those films. Close studies showed that these rods had extremely interesting behavior. They showed to have 3D features such as they would weave in and out of trees instead of just going through them or just staying visible always in the front of objects. They were carefully measured and they would range from about four inches to about three feet long. There seemed to be no difference between the head and tail and they had pairs of appendages all along its body.

In some air rods these appendages look kind of like fins that vibrate in undulating waves while others have some that look like bee wings. Most of the time, however, the rods are moving so fast that they are extremely blurry and it cannot be deciphered what they look like. Some rare ones can be solid white compared to the translucent ones that are mostly spotted.

Many people have grown fearful of these mysterious beings, believing they are a new species of bugs or even aliens that are invading Earth. Many skeptics believe it could be computer generated rods that are slipped into all the footage that is seen. That would be a lot of editing to get all those thousands of films to be edited like that!

It’s still a mystery to this day what they are, but it heavily believed they are real and seem to pose no threat to the people living in the world or the animals and plant life. They could possibly be aliens just visiting surveying the world to see what goes on here. Maybe one day we will learn more of their existence. Here’s to seeing the truth someday.

Dover Demon

FeaturedDover Demon

As one of the more supposedly ‘classic’ cryptids in the world although not spoken of much anymore, the Dover Demon was first reportedly spotted in Dover, Massachusetts on April 21st and April 22nd, 1977. On April 21st, William Bartlett (who was seventeen at the time) claimed that while he was driving that he saw a large-eyed creature with tendril-like fingers and glowing eyes on the top of a stone wall on Farm Street in Dover. Another boy, John Baxter, who was fifteen, reported seeing a similar creature on Miller Hill Road that same evening. On the next night, fifteen-year-old Abby Brabham claimed to also have seen the creature on Springdale Avenue. They were all confused and horrified at seeing the unknown being.

The three of them drew sketches of what they saw and Bartlett wrote, “I, Bill Bartlett, swear on a stack of Bibles that I saw this creature.” When the sightings were plotted out on a map it revealed that it created a straight line that went over two miles. It became to gain worldwide attention just like how Bigfoot has.

It was described as looking like a “gray” alien, but with a rosy orange color instead of the gray color. It has a large head on a small stick-like body.  It can be bipedal apparently, as it’s been seen traveling on two legs or on all fours. Its eyes sometimes glow green, but some have reported they glow orange. Witnesses are unsure if it wears clothing or if the clothing is just like the body. Unlike the grays, however, the Dover Demon does not seem to be associated with UFOs. Not many cryptozoologists show much interest in the Dover Demon. Since the sightings mostly happened during the time of the three reported ones back in 1977, the stories of the Dover Demon have since passed by.

Kidney Thieves

This urban legend (which actually isn’t an urban legend it actually does happen quite often) goes by several other titles, including “The Kidney Heist”, “The Organ Thieves”, and “The Stolen Kidneys”. The story goes that there was once a young man who was going to college. For spring break he went to Las Vegas with his buddies to have a good time. They were drinking and listening to music and just generally having a really good time for vacation. The young man had just finished another drink when a beautiful young woman came up to him and started talking to him. He was flattered and surprised that she was talking to him. They seemed to be hitting it off, and when she invited him to another party, he agreed.

He left the bar and went with the young woman to an apartment on the outskirts of the city. There was already a party going on and they started drinking some more and even dancing with each other a little. The young woman takes out two little pills and puts one in her mouth while offering the other to the man. He was never one to try drugs, but he decided he’d give it a try. That was the last thing he remembered.

When he awoke he was in a hotel bathroom, naked and in a tub full of ice. He was extremely groggy and disoriented and he tried to remember how he got there. He was also in a lot of pain. He saw he had a crumpled note in his hand that said, “If you don’t want to die, call 911”. He saw a cell phone sitting on a small table so he picked it up and proceeded to call emergency services. When the operator answered, he tried to explain he didn’t know what had happened to him and that he was in a tub full of ice. The operator instantly knew what was happening. She told him to check his body for injuries and he noticed two nine inch slits in his lower back. The operator told him to go back into the tub and that an ambulance was on the way. She also told him that he had been drugged and someone had removed his kidneys. There was a ring of organ thieves operating in the city and they would sell the organs on the black market. Afterwards, he was kept in the hospital on life support until he could get new kidneys.
