In the jungles of central Africa countries of Congo, Cameroon, and Gabon are reports of animal an animal with a long neck, a long tail, and rounded shape tracks with three claws. The closest known animal that has these characteristics is a sauropod dinosaur.
When some of the local people of the Likouala region would draw in the dirt or sand a representation of Mokele-mbembe they drew the shape of a sauropod dinosaur. Then when they were shown a picture of a sauropod dinosaur they said that picture is Mokele-mbembe.
Mokele-mbembe means “One that stops the flow of rivers.” French priest in the region called it “monstrous animal.”
Mokele-mbembe has been described as an animal with a long neck and tail which are characteristics of a sauropod dinosaur.
Its body size is somewhere between the size of a hippopotamus and an elephant. Its length has been reported to be between 5 to 10 meters (16 to 32 feet). The length of the neck is between 1.6 to 3.3 meters (5 to 10 feet). The length of the tail is between 1.6 to 3.3 meters (5 to 10 feet). The reports out of Cameroon have reported Mokele-mbembe to be up to 75 feet in length.
There have also been reports of a frill on the back of the head. The frill is like the comb found on a cock (male chicken). There has also been reports of it having a horn on its head.
The color of the skin is predominately reddish-brown with a color range from gray to brown. There are no reports of hair on the animal.
Mokele-mbembe lives in the pools and swamps adjacent to the rivers of the Likouala swamp region of The People’s Republic of the Congo on the continent of Africa. Its uses the lakes as a crossing path to go from one river to another river.
Was a Mokele-mbembe killed at Lake Tele?
by William Gibbons*
I can confirm that at least two of the pygmies who were directly involved in the killing of a Mokele-mbembe at Lake Tele about three decades ago were acquainted on a personal level with missionary pastor Eugene P. Thomas. I have discussed this incident with Pastor Thomas, and he was able to confirm most of the details of the story which follows.
Around 1960, the forest dwelling pygmies of the Lake Tele region (the Bangombe tribe), fished daily in the lake near the Molibos, or water channels situated at the north end of the lake. These channels merge with the swamps, and were used by Mokele-mbembes to enter the lake where they would browse on the vegetation. This daily excursion into the lake by the animals disrupted the pygmies fishing activities. Eventually, the pygmies decided to erect a stake barrier across the molibo in order to prevent the animals from entering the lake.
When two of the animals were observed attempting to break through the barrier, the pygmies speared one of the animals to death and later cut it into pieces. This task apparently took several days due to the size of the animal, which was described as being bigger than a forest elephant with a long neck, a small snake-like or lizard-like head, which was decorated with a comb-like frill. The pygmy spearmen also described a long, flexible tail, a smooth, reddish-brown skin and four stubby, but powerful legs with clawed toes. Pastor Thomas also mentioned that the two pygmies mimicked the cry of the animal as it was being attacked and speared.
In November 2000, William Gibbons did some preliminary research in Cameroon for a future expedition. He was accompanied by David Wetzel, and videographer Elena Dugan. While visiting with a group of pygmies, they were informed about an animal called Ngoubou, a horned creature. The pygmies asserted it was not a regular rhinoceros, as it had more than one horn (six horns on the frill in one eyewitness account), and that the father of one of the senior members of the community had killed one with a spear a number of years ago. The locals have noted a firm dwindle in the population of these animals lately, and are hard to find. Gibbons identified the animal with a Styracosaurus, but, in addition to being extinct, these are only known to have inhabited North America.
Marcy Expedition, 2006. The team found evidence of a large underground cave with air vents. The team also received sonar readings of very long, serpentine shapes underwater.
Maybe dinosaurs NOT been extinct for 70 million years, there is plenty of evidence that many are still alive today.
Elasmosaurus was the largest plesiosaur that we know of. A plesiosaur is an aquatic reptile that some claim died out millions of years ago.
Some people think the Loch ness creature is a plesiosaur Here is a REAL photo of Nessy
This looks like a plesiosaur
Photo:This apparent Plesiosaur specimen washed ashore in Monterey Bay, California in 1925. It sported a twenty foot or so long neck and some witnesses described a number of legs on the creature. Are Plesiosaurs still living in the Pacific Ocean?)
“We now come to perhaps the most intriguing description of them all, given by one of the most scientifically competent of them all. Mind the reader, not most competent, but one of the most competent. His name was E.L. Wallace, a man who served twice as president of the Natural History Society of British Columbia. He had the following to say about the animal:
“”My examination of the monster was quite thorough. I felt in its mouth and found it had no teeth. Its head is large and its neck fully twenty feet long. The body is weak and the tail is only three feet in length from the end of the backbone. These facts do away with the whale theory, as the backbone of a whale is far larger than any bone in this animal. Again, its tail is too weak for an animal of the deep and does away with that last version.
“With a bill like it possesses, it must have lived on herbage . . . I would call it a type of plesiosaurus.“”
A stunning conclusion, no doubt. Later, Mr. Wallace offered the theory that the monster may have been preserved in a glacier for millions of years, finally being released by the gradual melting of ice, eventually ending up cast upon the shore in Monterey Bay.”….TrueAuthority.com
Dr. Kent Hovind claims that these 2 pictures are a plesiosaur.
On his website he says the following:
“This apparent Plesiosaur washed up on Moore’s Beach in Monterey Bay, California in 1925. The neck was described as being about 20 feet long. No credible explanation has ever been made to explain it, other than Plesiosaurs still living in the Pacific Ocean.”
This creature was found by Russian soldiers on Sakhalin shoreline. Sakhalin area is situated near to Japan, it’s the most eastern part of Russia, almost 5000 miles to East from Moscow (Russia is huge). People don’t know who is it. According to the bones and teeth – it is not a fish. According to its skeleton – it’s not a crocodile or alligator. It has a skin with hair or fur. It has been said that it was taken by Russian special services for in-depth studies, and we are lucky that people who encountered it first made those photos before it was brought away.

In March 2000, a sudden change in the current UFO sightings reported in Mexico took place when Salvador Guerrero, one of the most respected skywatchers with many hours of UFO videos had a rare sighting. While doing his regular skywatch on the roof of his home in Colonia Agricola Oriental, Guerrero encountered something so bizarre, it has opened an entirely new chapter in the history of Mexican UFO research.
This was not just another common UFO witnessed by Salvador over the city for the past several years, this was something utterly different and intriguing. At first, Salvador thought the object could be a dark UFO high in the sky, so he started videotaping as usual. When he pressed the camera’s zoom, he couldn’t believe what he saw through the viewfinder.
It was a dark, solid object which was almost static in the sky, spinning slowly on its axis…featuring what looked to be a human from with ‘arms’ and ‘legs’ perfectly visible – giving the impression that “he”
or “it” was floating freely in the air. Needless to say, Salvador was shocked.
When a mysterious object passed over Mount Vernon, Illinois, on the evening of April 14, 1897, 100 citizens, including Mayor B. C. Wells, saw something that, as press accounts had it, “resembled the body of a huge man swimming through the air with an electric light on his back.”
Reports of flying beings of human or generally human appearance are among the rarer anomalous phenomena, but they occur periodically. A “winged human form” was observed over Brooklyn on September 18,1877, according to W. H. Smith (New York Sun, September 21). Almost exactly three years later the New York Times (September 12, 1880) remarked on reports from Coney Island of a “man with bat’s wings and improved frog’s legs … at least a thousand feet in the air … flying toward the New Jersey coast … [with] a cruel and determined expression.” In a 1947 book Russian writer V. K. Arsenyev recounted this July 11, 1908, experience in the Sikhote Mountains near Vladivostok in the far eastern region of what would be the USSR:
The rain stopped, the temperature of the air remained low and the mist appeared over the water. It was then that I saw the mark on the path that was very similar to a man’s footprint. My dog Alpha bristled up, snarled, and then something rushed about nearby trampling among the bushes. However, it didn’t go away, but stopped nearby, standing stock-still. We had been standing like that for some minutes…. Then I stooped, picked up a stone and threw it towards the unknown animal. Then something happened that was quite unexpected: I heard the beating of wings. Something large and dark emerged from the fog and flew over the river. A moment later it disappeared in the dense mist. My dog, badly frightened, pressed itself to my feet.
One night in 1952 U.S. Air Force Pvt. Sinclair Taylor, on guard duty at Camp Okubo, Kyoto, Japan, said he heard a loud flapping noise. Looking up, he saw an enormous “bird” in the moonlight. When it approached, he got frightened and put a round into the chamber of his carbine. The “bird” now had stopped its flight and was hovering not far away, staring at the soldier.
“The thing, which now had started slowly to descend again, had the body of a man,” Taylor recalled. “It was well over seven feet from head to feet, and its wingspread was almost equal to its height. I started to fire and emptied my carbine where the thing hit the ground. But when I looked up to see if my bullets had found home there was nothing there.” When the sergeant of the guard came to investigate and heard the story, he told Taylor that he believed him because a year earlier another guard had seen the same thing.
Some appear just like normal humans, except they are flying with what appears to be bat-like wings. Other human looking creatures have no wings and seem to fly unaided. Some appear non-human, looking like robots, monsters, etc… below we will describe more descriptions as some actual sightings are listed.
Some Sighting Details:
In the first reported case in 1877 a man observed what looked like a human male with bat-like wings, soaring over buildings in Brooklyn. NY, about 3 years later there were multiple reports of the same creature flying over Coney Island, Brooklyn, the being was noted as having a very stern or evil look to his face.
In 1953 in Houston, Texas three people saw a winged creature land in a nearby tree. As they went to investigate they saw it was a man dressed in black clothes. One of the witnesses said he was surrounded by an aura of light.
In 1956, in Falls City, Nebraska, a witness saw a winged man flying only about 15 feet above the ground. The wings were the color of aluminum and had different colored lights along their undersides, they had a span of roughly 15 feet. The man had skin that appeared to be very old or wrinkled, and abnormally large blue eyes. The man, or creature had a face that was very scary, almost devil or demonic looking. As the creature flew over the witness, the witness reported he became paralyzed and could not move, until the creature was out of sight.
On Jan 17, 2004 in Guadalupe, Mexico at 3:15 am a police officer was patrolling on Alamo Street when he saw what at first was a black mass, like a thick dark cloud descending slowly, it rolled and turned as it descended, when the mass touched the ground it transformed into a woman. The woman wore a black dress, and had black hair. The police officer then, put the patrol car in reverse, as he did the woman started walking towards him, it then tumbled and flew at a fast speed, impacting against the cars windshield. The woman stared at the police officer, and he noticed she had no eye lids, and the whole eye, including the normaly white parts, were black. At this time, the police officer raised his arms over his face and fainted, when he came to, the creature was gone.
Once the story of the police officer’s sighting was made public, 3 other police officers reported they saw the same creature, 3 days earlier.
Flying Humanoid, Santa Monica CA, Nov 27 2004
(MCIVERS- Western Star / 20-02-10)
“Neither local residents Warrick Lovell, Rich Park, Basil Park, or anyone else it seems, knows what the big creature found dead on a beach here this week might be.”
A mysterious creature that appears to be of marine origin washed up on the shore known as Lower Cove this week in Canada with what some are calling ‘Nessie-like’ features including a long tail, a large dorsal fin, and what appears to be another appendage that could be used at the front. One of the strangest aspects of the creature seems to be the fact that the creature has no head.
“The Department of Fisheries and Oceans in Corner Brook intends to check out the site today hoping to find some answers for the question of many curious onlookers who went there to see for themselves what Lovell found during a Wednesday afternoon walk on the beach.”
“It would be nice to see if anyone knows what it is,” says Lovell. “First I thought it was a seal washed up (on the high tide earlier in the day), but when I went down to check on my boat that evening, I walked over to see and then I knew it wasn’t a seal.”
“But, I don’t know what it is.”
“Of unknown origin and species, so far, the odd-looking seaside carcass sits high and dry on the low tide, its approximately 15-foot length includes a pointed, 10-foot tail twisted in the sand, conjuring up Loch Ness monsters for some.”
“The animal, bearing a single flipper-like appendage on its right side, appears to have been decapitated and shows other signs of damage.”
“I didn’t know what to think of it,” says Rich Park, also among the first to see it close up.”
“The long tapered tail on the squared torso of the carcass caused him to initially think the large hunk of flesh might be a tentacle off a giant squid Park said, but on closer inspection it became clearer what the protrusion was not that. It got hair on it in spots. I couldn’t (determine) what it was.”
“I’ve lived here all my life and never seen anything like it,” says Basil Park, who went Thursday went to take a look with friends and brothers Gilbert and Ernie Park, and neither one of them could say they knew what it was.”
“There’s fishermen around here who fished all their lives and they couldn’t tell you.”
But why the missing head? What did the head look like? These questions no doubt are key components to what is turning out to be the latest in a long string of interesting creature discoveries across the world, and is no doubt going to require serious investigation if there is any hope of it being anything more than yet another event that will be recalled by history as simply unexplainable.

Trapdoor spiders (superfamily Ctenizoidea, family Ctenizidae) are medium-sized mygalomorph spiders that construct burrows with a cork-like trapdoor made of soil, vegetation and silk. Some similar species are also called trapdoor spiders, such as the Liphistiidae, Barychelidae, Cyrtaucheniidae and some Idiopidae and Nemesiidae. Some Conothele species do not build a burrow, but construct a silken tube with trapdoor in bark crevices.
A hungry individual will wait halfway outside of its burrow for a meal. Male trapdoor spiders can overcome the female’s aggressive reactions to their approach, but it is not known how. Females never travel far from their burrows, especially if they have an egg sac. During this time, the female will capture food and regurgitate it to feed her spiderlings. Enemies of the trapdoor spider include certain pompilids (spider wasps), which seek out the burrows and manage to gain entrance. They sting the owner and lay their eggs (usually one per spider) on its body. When the egg hatches, the larva devours the spider alive.
Unlike other mygalomorph spiders, the Ctenizidae have a rastellum on the chelicera. Resembling “teeth” or “barbs” on each fang, this modification is used to dig and gather soil while constructing a burrow. They use their pedipalps and first legs to hold the trapdoor closed when disturbed.
There are about 120 described species of trapdoor spiders.
Golden orb weaver spider eating a bird
This guy is the blue-ringed octopus. It likes to hang out in tidal pools in Australia, and has some of the scariest venom present on Earth. It’s capable of camouflage, like most other octopi, chilling out in disguise and waiting for passing shrimp to eat. It’s generally a pretty docile creature, only stinging humans when they, say, don’t see it because it’s bloody camouflaged and step on it. It’s beak is strong enough to pierce a wetsuit, and it has the most potent venom of any of its kind. It doesn’t just kill you – that would be too merciful. First it blinds you, kills your ability to speak and swallow, renders you numb, and then paralyzes you utterly, sending you into respiratory arrest. Note that nowhere in this list of symptoms is unconsciousness. You’re left perfectly awake and aware, trapped in the frozen, senseless prison of your body, unable to scream, move or breathe. There is no known antidote; the only way to survive a blue-ring sting is through artificial respiration. The venom dissipates in 24 hours, and if you receive breathing assistance all through this period, you’ll be able to walk away with no lingering damage. Except for the nightmares that will now define your newly sleepless nights.
It is basically a normal octopus, except it does lots of things other octopuses don’t do, like living close to the surface in the open sea. Or like secreting a paper-thin eggshell that is not in any way a cepahopod shell like the Nautilus‘, since the females can leave and reenter the shell, which is not attached to the body(the males don’t secrete these shells, they prefer to watch sports and drink beer, that’s why they rarely grow larger than 2cm, as opposed to the 10cm body, 30cm shell sized females). They hold it with two of their arms instead.
is not a plant.
its a type of starfish that looks like a walking thornbush.
It’s a fish with a transparent head. It’s eyes are those green things pointing straight up underneath it’s clear head, so stuff doesn’t get in them.
Neat new ‘psychedelic’ fish, courtesy of National Geographic.
Fossils of Hallucigenia leave no obvious indication of its head end, and it seems to have pairs of long spines on one side but just a single row of softer limbs on the other. Early fossils also had a large, featureless knob at one end of the body. This led its discoverer to reconstruct it like this.
And if we’re going to talk prehistoric organisms, there’s no age like the Cambrian age! Before the dinosaurs, before the giant amphibians, before any vertebrates or terrestrial animals at all, the world was home only to sea-dwelling invertebrates, many of which have no modern equivalent. For millions of years, Anomalocaris may have been the largest predator in the world at roughly one meter in length. The T-rex of “bugs.”

This strange fish was caught in Asia, THERE IS SOME STRANGE STUFF DOWN THERE
“Wolf trap” anglerfish are probably my favorite group of fish, and in my opinion, the very strangest looking. They have huge, protruding upper jaws that close lengthwise, like the leaves of a venus fly trap or the covers of a book. once the prey is encaged in this manner, it opens the smaller lower jaw to suck it inside.
That is the Black Dragonfish. It’s a voracious deep-sea hunter.
Pinchy the land-loving lobster. These things are very weird. They bust open coconuts with their big claws. Yes, they get enormous, and they live on land, all the time. I saw one in a pet shop in San Diego about 10 years ago. It was about a foot long. There was a large sign that exclaimed, “DANGEROUS! DO NOT PUT HANDS OR FINGERS IN CAGE!” Yeah, no shit. A friend told me that these are eaten in the Philippines, since the Coconut Crab’s diet of coconuts makes their crabmeat extra sweet. Yum!

Pompeii Worms live in black smokers. No, not the human variety, but instead, the type of hydrothermal vent that spews out superheated volcano water at extreme temperatures that may reach 400C.
“the worms have been found to thrive at temperatures of up to 80°C (176°F), making the Pompeii worm the most heat-tolerant complex animal known to science after the tardigrades (or water bears), which are able to survive temperatures over 150ºC.”

The Goliath Spider
The largest known spider in the world (note the disturbing italics), the Goliath spider is commonly found in the jungles of South America, and have a 30 centimeter legspan. They can move with disturbing speed, and will fucking hiss at you when pissed. These spiders can defend themselves by biting, or by kicking sharp hairs towards their perceived assailant. These hairs can be severely irritating to the skin and lungs, and have been reported to feel like shards of fiberglass. Their bite is not generally considered dangerous, but I defy you to look down and see one of these things attached to your leg by the fangs, staring up at you with eight black, soulless eyes and ever sleep again.

These things are EVERYWHERE in Florida. And for persons such as myself who are abso-fucking-lutely terrified of spiders, banana spiders Are scary. Any arachnophobias who so much as steps into a wooded area of Florida is %132456 to walk right into one of these rainbow demons. And when you suddenly become entangled in the strongest fiber on Earth and have a murderous spiky spider the size of your head running on your face making it worse, you will shit fear.
