Tuesday's Monsters

From The Anomalist:

The Honey Island Swamp Monster The Blogsquatcher. The 1974 tale of a supposed encounter with a large, hairy, smelly biped in Mississippi's Honey Island Swamp catapulted the witnesses, Harlan E. Ford and Ray Mills, into the media spotlight. Here their tale is revisited with a video report, links and a photograph of the Bigfoot-like creature's footprint cast. Meanwhile, Loren Coleman at Cryptomundo is reporting on the Australian equivalent of the American Bigfoot in Yowie Kills Dog? With images. And Coleman has commentary on a recently resurfaced image in "Dead Bigfoot Photo" Deconstructed.

Otter Kings to Earth Hounds - Britain's Lesser Known Mystery Beasts ShukerNature. Dr. Karl Shuker takes you on a tour of the British Isles and the many mysterious animals reported throughout the isles over the years. Included: the dobhar-chu (or master otter) of Ireland, Teggie of Bala Lake, the earth hound of Banffshire, the cenaprugwirion of North Wales, the Beast of Soay, the horned monster of Lough Dubh, the winged snake of Hyde Park and Hammersmith and the walking fir cone of Dumpton Park. With illustrations. Meanwhile, Chris Clark, at Cryptozoology Online, mentions the Magnetic Mole, Giotto's Bat and the Antikythira Elephant (Clark says this tiny elephant could fly!) in Three Little Known Cryptids.
