Monsters of the Various Kind

There's a good body of insightful stories over at The Anomalist right now covering such matters as Bigfoot camouflage, the Lizard Man, the nature of Mokele-Mbembe, and much more:

In the Field, June 20, 2009 The Blogsquatcher Three witnesses to what they believed was a Bigfoot crossing the face of a hill in Virginia lead to a trip to the woods for Sasquatch Watch of Virginia. With photos. Also, there's a note concerning an alleged encounter, reminiscent of the movie Predator, presented as Odd Tale of Bigfoot Emitting Heat Waves, and a programming reminder in Sasquatch Watch Radio: Guests Are Dave Paulides & Harvey Prat - June 22 - 9:00 PM. Paulides is the author of The Hoopa Project and Tribal Bigfoot, while Pratt is a forensic artist.

The Lonesome Death of Mister Lizardman Cryptozoology Online. Jon Downes explains what may be considered a curse as he refers to the news story Police: Murder Victim Lizard Man Witness, which details the events that led to the death of 37-year-old Christopher Davis, who in 1988 became the first person to report the existence of the Lizard Man of Scape Ore Swamp in South Carolina. Does a curse attach itself to people who have an experience with a monster? Downes says it does, in a way, and credits Tony 'Doc' Shiels with coining the term "Psychic Backlash" to describe the "series of inexplicabe and horrific outbreaks of bad luck that can overtake the hapless seeker after monstrous truth on his way to his goal." Elsewhere, Loren Coleman at Cryptomundo joins the speculation that the mokele-mbembe of central Africa, thought by many to be a surviving dinosaur is, instead, a relic of a more modern beast, as described, with multiple images, in Maybe Mokele-Mbembe Are Mammals. Meanwhile, the possibility an out-of-place animal is on the loose has raised the alarm in France, as reported in 'Loch Ness Monster of the Vosges' Threatens French Village.
