The Loveland Frog has been seen by numerous people in the area around Loveland, Ohio. The witnesses include Police officers who observed the creatures on the side of the road. The officers watched as the giant frog like creature jump down an embankment and out of sight. The descriptions of the creature all seem to match. The man-like creature is 3 to 5 feet tall. It walks upright like a human and has webbed hands and feet. The head is that of a large frog or lizard. It's skin appears to be leathery. Get more information here
In 1966 in Point
Pleasant, West Virginia, after a large number of UFO sightings, this mysterious
creature was sighted. The creature is described as 5 to 7 ft tall,
gray in color, winged and headless, glowing red eyes on it's torso.
The creature was seen flying across the sky at speeds estimated at 100
mph. As it flies by it emits a high pitch shrieking sound.
The deaths of small animals and pets have been attributed to this creature.
The last thing
a 17 year old Bill Bartlett expected to see when driving with two friends
through Dover, Massachusetts, at around 10:30 PM on April 21, 1977 was
a creature from another dimension. Yet that is what he may have done, at
least in the opinion of some investigators-and judging from Bill's description
of what he saw, they could have a point! Driving along, his car's headlights
suddenly illuminated a peculiar entity picking its way along a stone wall
at the side of the road. As can be seen from the picture that Bill later
prepared, which is reproduced here, the creature had a disproportionately
large head, shaped like a water melon, with two big, protruding eyes that
glowed orange, but it did not seem to have a mouth, nose or ears. Its body
was small, its neck and limbs were long and thin, and its fingers and toes
were slender and supple. The creature appeared to be hairless, but it's
peach-colored skin was rough in texture. It stood about 1 meter (3-4 feet)
high, and was observed only by Bill (his two friends were not looking in
the right direction to see it). Unknown to Bill, however, his strange sighting
would soon be substantiated by an entirely independent eyewitness. Less
than two hours later, 15 year old John Baxter was walking home little more
than a mile from the locality of Bill's encounter when he saw a strange
figure coming towards him. After receiving no reply when he called out
to it, John paused, and as he did so the figure ran away down a gully.
John chased after it and when he was about 9 meters (30 feet) away, he
could see it clearly, standing upright on its hind legs and gripping the
trunk of a tree. When he spied its brightly glowing eyes staring at him
from an otherwise featureless face, however, John decided to let caution
supersede curiosity and he walked briskly back to the road. Once he reached
home, he too made a visual record of what he had witnessed, and as can
be seen here, his wholly independent illustration corresponds very closely
indeed with Bill's. At around midnight on April 22, what writer Loren Coleman
has subsequently called "The Dover Demon" was seen again, this time by
15 year old Abby Brabham while being driven home by Will Taintor, 18, who
only spied it very briefly. Abby's description matched those of Bill and
John in every respect except one: when she observed it, its eyes were glowing
green, not orange. And thus ended the curious case of the Dover Demon,
for it has never been reported again and has never been satisfactorily
identified. If the descriptions of it are accurate-and they are certainly
very consistent-the Dover Demon does not resemble any species known to
science, either from North America or elsewhere. It may not, however, be
entirely unknown. The Cree nation of eastern Canada speak of a mysterious
race of pygmy entities called the Mannegishi, who delight in playing tricks
upon travelers. According to the Cree, the Mannegishi have round heads,
long thin legs, arms with six fingers on each hand, and they live between
rocks in the rapids. Excluding the finger count discrepancy, this description
is reminiscent to the Dover Demon.

Could a dinosaur still be alive today in the jungles of the Congo ? Since 1913 there have been numerous sightings by local villagers of a creature that closely resembles a Brontosaurus. Foreigner's like Professor Roy P. Mackal have also seen this animal in the Congo. The creature is about the size of an elephant with short legs and a long neck. It appears to be a small version of a Brontosaurus. The creature is herbivorous, but it has attacked humans who have ventured to close to it while it was feeding.
Since 1913 there have been numerous sightings in the African Congo of a creature closely resembling the brontosaurs. Reports of dinosaur survival in Africa actually further back than this century if you consider the rock paintings of long necked quadrupeds. This creature is commonly known as mokele mbembe (meaning 'rainbow'), named by local pygmies. Common descriptions are of an elephant sized creature, reddish-brown or grey with smooth skin and a long muscular tail similar to that of an alligator. The legs are short in comparison to the long neck which is topped by a reptilian head. Footprints left on land are of a three-clawed foot.
James Powell, a Texan herpetologist was the leader of the first cryptozoological expedition to the area in 1979. His report included tales of a strange animal called n'yamala living in the swamps of Gabon which resembled the sauropod diplodocus. the diplodocus was a gray dinosaur with a long neck and tail similar to the brontosaurus. James Powell also said that a local witch doctor had told him he had seen a n'yamala around 1946, of over 30 feet (9m) in length, with a huge neck and tail, weighing at least as much as an elephant.
Interesting findings were made in the autumn of 1981 when Herman Regusters and his wife became the first Westerners to succeed in reaching Lake Tele. They returned with sounds recordings, plaster cast footprints, and samples of droppings. They also claimed to have sighted mokele membe on the lake.
Marecellin Agagna, a zoologist from Brazzaville zoo led a Congolese expedition which arrived at Lake Tele in April 1983. He also claimed a sighting of mokele mbembe about 300 yards (275m) out on the lake. He thought the animal was reptile. His description was of a thin reddish head with oval eyes like a crocodile. The head was about 3 feet (90 cm) above the water, and turned from side to side as though looking for him.
By 1992, Dinosaur fever had subsided dramatically. A Japanese film crew shot some interesting footage in September 1992 showing unusual activity in the water of Lake Tele. Expert opinion failed to confirm the video evidence in any way. Mitsuharo Ondo. the director of the Bala film told how the footage had been shot while the expedition crew were flying into the interior to begin there overland trek of the lake. They had planned to pass over the Tele region on the way, so they could film the lake and get an impression of the terrain they faced ahead on foot.
The Congo is full of caves many of which are below ground level and some even stretch for as far as 60 miles, with swamp conditions making an idea habitat for possible creatures such as mokele mbembe.
Dinosaur survival in the Congo can not honestly be reckoned proven. On the one hand, equatorial Africa does appear to have survived largely unchanged since the end of the dinosaur era. On the other, 70 million years is a long time for what appears to be a limited population to survive while adapting to the arrival of new rivals in the food chain and without suffering a severe deterioration of its gene pool.
This cat-like creature was thought responsible for the death of over 200 farm animals over a 5 month period in England in 1987. The creature pictured above was sighting numerous times and was clocked running up to 35 MPH. The creature was also able to leap over 6 foot high fences without a problem. There aren't supposed to be any large cats still living in regions where this animals was sighted.
The Mongolian Death Worm, aka Allghoi Khorkhoi, was first sighted in 1926 in the Southern Gobi Desert in Mongolia. It is described as a thick-bodied worm about 2 to 4 feet long. The creature is reported to be able to spray a acid like substance that causes death instantly. It is also claimed that this creature has the ability to kill from a distance with some sort of super charged electrical charge. Numerous Mongolians have reported seeing this creature including a Mongolian Premier. The creature is reported to hibernate during most of the year except for June and July when it becomes active.
This creature was killed on the Venezuela/Colunbia border in 1917 by Francois De Loys and his party. This creature appears to be a very man-like ape. It has never been identified as a known species. De Loys group was attack by these creatures and they shot and killed one of them. The creature was about 5 ft tall and had a very human like appearance and movements. The size and shape of the creatures forehead show that it isn't even closely related to known primates of South America. Could this creature be the missing link between man and ape ? Is this creature or one of it's relatives responsible for the bigfoot/yeti sightings ?
The picture above was taken in 1959 by a Belgium helicopter pilot, Col. Remy Van Lierde, while on patrol over the congo. The snake he saw measured approximately 40 to 50 feet in length, dark brown/green with a white belly. It had triangle shaped jaws and a head about 3 ft x 2 ft. Experts have analyzed the pictures and have verified them as authentic. They also have verified the size of the creature by matching ground features to the snake. As the helicopter flew in lower the snake raised up 10 feet and looked as if it would strike at the helicopter if they flew any closer.
Is there a creature in a another body of water near Loch Ness ? For centuries there have been reports of a creature dwelling in the depths of Loch Morar, located just 70 miles from Loch Ness. The creature seems to be similar to the one sighted in Loch Ness. This add even more to the theory that some large water dwelling animals were living in the various lochs' waters as they slowly became land locked. There is enough food in the eco system of both lochs to support a large whale like creature such as the assumed extinct Zeuglodons. The Zeuglodon is a primitive snake-like whale. Sightings of Morag, as the creature has been dubbed, have been numerous in the this century. In 1970, some members of the Loch Ness Investigation Bureau went to investigate the possibility of a creature in near-by Loch Morar. One member, Neil Bass, spotted a "hump-shaped black object" during their observation on the loch. Bass did recognized the creature he say as normal marine life in the area.
The small Indonesian island of Sumatra is the home of the Orang-Pendek. It is said to stand 3 to 5 ft tall, is covered with short dark hair and has a thick bushy mane. It walks mostly on the ground instead of living primarily in the trees like the island's other apes. It has a footprint that is very similar to a humans. In 1989 a British writer Deborah Martyr found the footprints of the Orang-Pendek and made casts of the prints. The director of the Kerinci Selbat Nation Park was given the casts and said that they were made by no animal that they knew of. The creature lives mostly off of fruits and small animals and is seen fairly often by locals. This creature would be hard to find on this island if it is reclusive, the island is covered with millions acres of rain forest. An article about Orang-Pendek here

Monster of Flatwoods, West Virginia
In the eastern
state of West Virginia, there lies the town of Flatwoods. Flatwoods,
West Virginia is just like any other town...That is if you exclude the
events on September 12, 1952.
That day in September is definitely a memorable one to the locals of Flatwoods. Just as the New Jersey Devil is to New Jersey and as the Dover Demon is to Dover.
On the afternoon of September 12th, Sheriff Carr and his deputy Long were given a report of an object falling to earth. Not long afterwards, a similar report was given by local school students. However it was the night of this where the most interest lies.
Shortly before the sunset, four boys saw an object fall on a hill. Bringing an adult named Kathleen May and her two boys along, they journeyed up the hill. What they found was quite interesting. Twas’ a large sphere-like object which was reported to have a diameter of about ten feet. Now, afterdark, two lights suddenly shone from a distance. One of the members of the group directed his flashlights towards the two lights. However these were not just any lights...they were eyes! They were the eyes of a creature about ten feet in height. The eye witnesses described it as having, “a bright red face, bright green clothing, a head which resembled the ace of spades, and clothing which, from the waist down, hung in great folds”. Shortly after the creature realized it had been sited, it began to hover towards the witnesses. The group then retreated.
Mrs. May called Sheriff Carr while the four friends called their “buds”. Even later that night, the original group, the sheriff, the kids’ friends, a giant mob of locals climbed the hill to see what has been reported. However nothing mysterious was found. All that was mysterious was that of a peculiar odor.
The next day, “two parallel skidmarks and a circle of flattened grass” was discovered. Unopened-minded authorities tried to explain it as being that of a comet or meteor and nothing else. And that the so called creature was just an animal wrongfully identified. These are absurd solutions which do not solve many factors of the event. These include the fact that a meteor or comet crater would be clearly visible in the night. Also, there are no known species of a land animals that are ten feet tall, stand on two legs, and that also on top of that has a red face.
Beginning the next night, other sightings were reported. A mother and daughter claimed to have spotted the creature not many miles from the hill. A non-resident of Flatwoods reported seeing a “bright orange object” hovering over Flatwoods. There was one more couple who reported an observation of unusual objects overhead Flatwoods, and also reported seeing the monster. Many investigators looked into this incident such as the famous John Keel (author of the Mothman Prophecies). A "festival" was recently held for the 50th year anniversary of the event. Though it has been exactly fifty years since this event the people of Flatwoods have never solved the mysteries of September 12th, 1952. -By Jarid Goodman

Tatzelwurm (German for worm with claws)
creatures that live in holes. Sightings of these creatures center
around the Swiss and Austrian Alps. Tatzelwurms are described as mountain
dwelling dragons with a cat head, razor sharp
teeth, spiked ridges along their back, little or no neck, cylindrical body, lizard or serpent like, scaly, and has four legs with three toes on each foot. It is reported that they live mainly in the crevices on the mountains. They are extremely aggressive and will attack if provoked.
The first reported
sighting was in 1779 by Hans Fuchs. While he was out on the mountains
he had the misfortune of sighting first one, then a second one appeared.
Fearing for his life, he fled. Before
he could reach his home, he suffered a heart attack. However, before dying he was able to warn his family and tell them of his harrowing experience.
Tatzelwurms are also known as Stollenwurms and as Springwurms because of their leaping abilities. One report has a farmer killing a tatzelwurm that had been hibernating. The blood flowed freely from its mouth, but was green instead of red.
In 1711 Jean Tinner, a man, was on the mountain of Frumsember in Switzerland. He reported to authorities that he had seen and wounded a horrible serpent with a musketshot. Nearby residents had complained that their cows were without milk. Mr. Tinner's lucky shot must have been fatal to the serpent creature as the cows were giving milk after the incident was reported.
In 1924 a 5 foot long skeleton was found that resembled a lizard. Some have come to view the tatzelwurm as a giant size member of the otter family or a giant sized Asian salamander. It has also been considered a relative of the American gila monster. It is true that sightings in recent years have been rare, but this does not detract from their past or current existence.
Living in the
crevices of the Alps is pretty much a guarantee of existing. Their
ability to hibernate in the extreme cold allows them to survive the elements.
As to surviving the human race, well, just the fact that they live in the
crevices of the Alps would insure a few of their kinds survival.
The depth of all the crevices is unknown and most of the crevices have
not been explored. Hmmm, like the ocean and outer space these crevices
may never be fully explored as to their depths, where they go, or what
dwells within their dark
There is no confusing this Big Bird with the big yellow one on Sesame Street! January 1, 1976 a five-foot tall, bald black bird, large red eyes, with a six-inch long beak in the center of it's gorilla-like face was seen in the Rio Grande Valley standing with it's wings folded around it's large body. This creature will make a loud shrill "eeeee" sound and its wings sound almost bat like.
Those that have
reported seeing the creature say its face is horrifying and that the large
red eyes are pure evil. Animal behavior when this bird is around
is odd. One family reported that the bird was watching their daughter
and her playmate one late afternoon. The girls were terrified as
was the family dog that lived
outside. The dog cowered and when released to come into the house for dinner darted and refused to leave the safety of the house.
The fathers of the two girls went to investigate the area where the creature was seen. Upon arriving at the site, they found prints that were 8 inches across squared at the top with 3-toed impressions and 1.5 inches deep in the hard dry dirt. One of the men attempted to gauge the weight of the bird. His weight was 170 pounds and even jumping down hard on the hard dry dirt, he was unable to make even a slight impression.
A second sighting of the bird was made by a motorist on January 7, 1976. The driver was startled by a big bird standing aggressively in the middle of the deserted road with his wings wrapped around his body and whose eyes glared at him.
Based on witness reports, there are many who believe the Big Bird is possibly blue herons or pelicans. Not likely since herons and pelicans do not weigh anywhere near the 170 plus pounds that would have been required to leave the prints mentioned earlier. We are discovering new creatures daily and even some that were once thought extinct. The big bird could be a new species or a once thought extinct one or perhaps it is a "mothman" creature!
