Winged humanoid creatures

Winged humanoid creatures 88

Nothing could have prepared night watchman José Padrón for the sight that confronted him on the night of August 30, 1967. An enormous shape was heading in his direction, taking prodigious strides. The monstrous being had wings which Padrón would later compare with those of a small airplane. The sound it produced was apparently made by the creature’s claws as it tried to take flight.

Padrón had been getting ready to go to sleep within the cramped interior of the tin shack serving as guardhouse for the construction area on Mexico’s Route 57. At around 1:00 A.M., he had been awakened by the sound of something large stumbling around the motor pool. Fearing vandalism, the watchman had shaken himself awake and gone to investigate.

Padrón ran back to the shack, cowering fearfully inside until daybreak, when supervising engineer Enrique Rueda arrived on the site. Rueda listened carefully to the badly shaken watchman and proceeded to measure a series of fresh footprints found near the shack. The prints measured a little over one foot wide and had a depth of six inches. The engineer’s computations showed that whatever had made the impressions on the soil had weighed more than 600 pounds. Photos of the strange prints later appeared in the El Sol de San Luis newspaper. Fortean researcher Godofredo de la Fuente subsequently made plaster casts of the footprints. He deduced that the creature had traveled in a northeast-southeast trajectory, bordering a barbed-wire fence several hundred feet from the highway.

This incident, which would have made a great X-Files episode, drew international attention to the city of San Luis Potosí in Mexico’s minerals and metallurgy belt. But unlike many sightings of “winged weirdos,” the San Luis creature graced the construction site with its presence a second time. It returned the following night with a similar creature — possibly its mate — and both entities left a considerable number of footprints. The watchman, while understandably scared, observed them carefully. He said the creatures appeared to be headed toward the San Miguelito Mountains, adding a curious detail: The ground trembled as the creatures flew off.

This renewed visit caused the supervising engineer to increase the number of watchmen. Godofredo de la Fuente would later write in his journal, “Next to the last of the twelve footprints we noticed a broken mesquite branch which appeared to have been forcefully snapped off due to the passage of the swift mystery creatures. Only something having considerable physical strength could have snapped off a solid, spiny branch of the mesquite tree. Our inspection of the area did not yield any samples of hair nor feathers.” Fortunately, the story of the gryphon-like creatures did not rest solely on the testimony of the frightened night watchman. On September 1, 1967, a number of American tourists who had parked their campers at San Luis’s famous Cactus Inn claimed to have seen strange creatures with tremendous wingspans flying overhead. The Cactus Inn was less than a quarter mile from the construction site.

A Chilling Discovery

Hector Urdiales, a member of Mexico’s Cosmos A.C. paranormal research foundation, decided to lead an investigation during Easter week, 1984, to a seldom-visited area located behind Monterrey’s Cerro de la Silla, an enormous, irregular-shaped hill dominating the city. Stories of a monstrous winged being prowling the area had come to Urdiales’ attention. Accompanied by a friend, the explorer stopped at a roadside general store on the road to San Roque, where he interviewed the owner, who was among the many witnesses to the creature. They followed his indications as to where to camp and mount their watch.

Nothing unusual happened during their first day and night in the area. On the following morning, while combing the banks of a stream running through a copse of savin trees, Urdiales and his companion made a chilling discovery.

The grass at the base of one of the trees by the stream was covered in the blood and entrails of an animal. Closer inspection revealed that the savin tree’s entire trunk was streaming with blood flowing from above. Hesitantly they followed the trail of blood with their eyes until they came upon a surreal sight. Twenty feet off the ground, a large boar had been split open and spitted to a tree limb. Fear washed over the re-searchers, since they realized that the tall savin lacked the strong lower limbs which would have assisted a human to deliver the grisly cargo to such a dizzying height. Their minds couldn’t conjure up any feline predator strong enough to drag a 200-pound boar up a tree. Only a carnivorous winged predator having the wingspan and talons needed to attack that kind of prey could have possibly been responsible for the carnage.

On July 20, 1994, a farm worker at Rancho El Sabino in Monterrey was heading back to his house to have lunch at around 11:00 a.m. As he walked past a nearby graveyard, the farm worker noticed something emerge from another footpath at a distance of 100 feet. As he got closer, he realized that he was looking at a half-human, half-avian creature which was indifferent to the startled human’s presence. The creature continued to walk, chicken-like, down the footpath until it reached a crossroad. The birdman then flexed its enormous wings and turned down another path. By the time the farm worker reached the intersection, the figure was half a mile ahead of him. Then he lost sight of it altogether.

Five days later, a woman who had gone to decorate one of the tombs at the graveyard came upon the same creature and notified the authorities. News of the case prompted researchers Marco A. Reynoso, Ernesto Estrada, Esteban Guzmána, and Leopoldo Zambrano to investigate the site on July 29, 1994. Reaching the graveyard around midnight, they fanned out to cover all corners of the site but were unable to stumble across the gryphon-like presence.

Later on the following day they were able to videotape an interview with the farm worker, who gave them a comprehensive description of the entity sighting: the creature had been covered in grayish feathers and was human-looking from its head down to its torso, with bird-like attributes of wings, feathers, and talons below. The farm worker added that he didn’t pursue the creature for fear that it might attack him.

Scientist finds polar bear DNA in Bigfoot

Scientist finds polar bear DNA in Bigfoot 102

British scientists examined yeti DNA and found a strong similarity to polar bear DNA. For analysis, they took the wool of a creature that was killed by a hunter in the Himalayas 30 years ago.

Brian Sykes, a geneticist at the University of Oxford, examined the DNA of the Bigfoot Yeti and found similarities to the DNA of a polar bear, according to Daily Star.

For analysis, Sykes took the wool of a creature killed by a hunter in the Himalayas 30 years ago, from which they made a stuffed animal. The result showed a match with the DNA of an ancient polar bear that became extinct at least 40,000 years ago. The geneticist suggests that the Yeti is a hybrid of a brown bear and a polar bear that arrived in the mountain range from the Arctic north many years ago. For this reason, it behaves differently from an animal of this species.

Now the professor wants to obtain samples of Bigfoot hair from all over the world in order to subject them to the most difficult DNA tests and continue research in this direction.

In 2019, the FBI released documents revealing the results of analysis of hair and biologic tissue allegedly belonging to Bigfoot. The samples were sent in 1976 by yeti hunter Peter Byrne. Research results showed that they belonged to a deer.

Bigfoot is a large humanoid creature from modern folklore, which is believed to live in forest or mountain areas that are inaccessible to humans. It is believed that it is an ancient hominid that has survived to our time, but scientists are skeptical about the likelihood of its existence. In particular, all cases of its observation or possible traces are explained by hoax or mistaken recognition of animal tracks.

When was the last time a Bigfoot was seen?

In 2020, the appearance of Bigfoot was noted in Australia, the relic forests of Canada, in the west of the USA, in the north of Scandinavia.

In the spurs of the Himalayas, wild hairy people of small stature were seen, resembling a Flores man (fossil dwarf species of people. Also known as the “hobbit” by analogy with the creatures invented by J. Tolkien. – Ed.).

In October, locals informed that in the jungle of Africa, in the Congo region, there is an upright creature similar to a Yeti.

Traces of Bigfoot, his refuge are regularly found in Komi. Yeti visits have recently been reported from eyewitnesses from the Karelian Isthmus and the border zone near Vyborg, where there are dungeons and a huge bunker near an abandoned military airfield.

Inverness, December 23. A new photograph of a mysterious creature “the size of a very large seal” in Loch Ness has been announced as another official sighting of the Loch Ness monster.

Tourist Karen Scott, returning from Aberdeen, noticed a strange creature in the Scottish Loch Ness. The woman managed to capture her observation in the photo. At first, Scott took what he saw for a big bird, she admitted to reporters. According to the traveler, while she took out the camera, the mysterious creature managed to submerge itself under the water.

“By the time I turned on the camera on my phone, it was slowly submerged under the water and then reappeared at a short distance,” she shared.

Scott and her friend compared the creature they saw to a large seal, but workers at the lake have denied this assumption. According to experts, seals rarely get that far into Loch Ness.

The tourist flow to these places in 2020 was much lower than in previous years due to the coronavirus pandemic, experts studying Nessie noted. Despite this circumstance, during this year, travelers recorded a large amount of evidence of the existence of the Loch Ness monster, scientists were surprised.

In Africa, some tribes still believe in the existence of a dinosaur on the Congo River

There are already a great many cryptids in our world. But at the same time, we do not have any evidence of their real existence, except for legends and eyewitness accounts. Of course the ocean is still a very unexplored sphere of the Earth. There may indeed be some prehistoric cryptids preserved there. For example, there is one horseshoe crab, which is almost 500 million years old. 

But in Africa there has long been a belief about a certain Mokele-Mbemba, who lives in the Congo basin. This legend confuses scientists. If the most ancient creatures can still be preserved in the ocean, then they could hardly remain on Earth, especially when it comes to dinosaurs.

Judging by African beliefs, dinosaurs on Earth are not yet extinct?

However, judging by the descriptions of local residents, either some sauropod from the Jurassic period or a real plesiosaur lives in the Congo. It is not known exactly who it is about. The appearance of this creature, described by eyewitnesses from Africa, often resembles the Loch Ness monster. 

Mokele-mbemba is credited with a long neck, a raptor’s head and aggressive predatory behavior. According to some tribes, a mysterious dinosaur can hunt hippos that are afraid of him and go away. According to other sources, he is a herbivore. No matter how many expeditions were organized to the Congo to search for this creature, not one of them was crowned with success. None of the naturalists have come across a mokele mbembe. This sometimes gives the impression that this creature is just a product of the mythology of local residents.

In 2001, the BBC and Discovery Channel filmed an entire movie dedicated to the search for the mysterious Mokele Mbembe. From conversations with representatives of tribes, experts found out that the mysterious creature could be …. A common rhino. 

The fact is that there are practically no rhinos in the Congo basin. Local peoples are usually not fond of distant travel. But rhinos could well have lived in these lands centuries ago. From all this, naturalists concluded that by mokele-mbembe they mean any of the African rhinos. 

Moreover, when one of the experts showed the local a photograph of a rhinoceros, they replied that it was the same mythical monster. Therefore, scientists thought that the legend was created by those who personally saw these giant pig-like animals in distant times. In addition, the mysterious traces of mokele-mbembe,

Judging by African beliefs, dinosaurs on Earth are not yet extinct?

True, it is worth considering the opinion of cryptozoologists who are looking for outlandish creatures on Earth. Over a century of this entire cryptozoological campaign, researchers talked to many locals in the Congo and received very mixed information. 

Some Africans said that the mokele-mbembe has a very long neck, more characteristic of a dinosaur, as well as the existing scales. Moreover, there was information about the carnivorousness of this beast. In this case, this animal can no longer be equated with a rhinoceros. Almost nowhere was it reported that the beast had a giant horn.

 A biologist named Roy McCull undertook two expeditions to find the mokele-mbembe and failed. But he is still sure that the mysterious creature is not a rhino at all, but a real sauropod that has survived to this day. 

McCull strongly disagrees that the mokele-mbembe could be a mammal or an amphibian. But the official science does not recognize the existence of surviving dinosaurs at all, and calls the legend of the African “dinosaur” an ordinary fantasy
