Our world is not so harmless. Frightened witnesses are dumbfounded and bewildered.
As a result, no evidence of such meetings remains. But creatures continue to exist, in their secluded places, and in our imagination. We will tell below about the ten most mysterious creatures that, according to many, still exist on our planet.
After all, there are eyewitnesses who saw them with their own eyes. Even if some creatures are more incredible than others, it is up to our imagination to decide whether they really exist.
Yeti. The Bigfoot is perhaps the most frequently encountered mysterious creature. Yeti was found in forests and mountains almost all over the planet. Scientists still cannot get reliable evidence of the existence of the Yeti. But every year more and more evidence of its existence appears. Interestingly, from Florida to Australia, people describe Bigfoot quite consistently and similarly. The growth of the creature is from 2 to 2.5 meters. The yeti itself is covered in long brown, red, or white hair. A nasty smell comes from it. The large size of the feet, like the hands, is evidenced by prints on the ground. They say that the yeti shuns a person, and can howl at night. The huge number of meetings suggests that this creature has every chance of becoming real, yet unknown to science. But what is it? The missing link in evolution? Ancient ancestors of people left to live in deserts and mountains? Or maybe it's just an unknown species of monkey? Perhaps the secret will soon be revealed. After all, digital technology can significantly improve the observation of the terrain. In America, cameras are beginning to be installed in the forests that will monitor traffic around the clock in an attempt to detect a mysterious creature. In the meantime, all that enthusiasts have are prints of large feet, scraps of wool and eyewitness accounts.
Loch Ness monster. In this series, it is worth noting several monsters at once living in the depths of the lakes. Although scientists today are equipped with sensitive electronic devices, water monsters still elude observation. There are good witness observations. The most famous monster is Loch Ness, also called Nessie. It is known that this inhabitant of the depths has a long head and neck, while the back is humped. Similar animals were seen in other places - Chessie in the Chesapeake Bay, Storsy in the Swedish lake Storsion, Selma in Norway, Champion at Lake Champlain in New York. Most observers say how they noticed a towering hump above the water, only a few lucky ones were able to see the extended neck and head. Usually, the creature immediately begins to dive. Photo and video evidence of aquatic monsters is very small and almost all of them are blurry. The most famous is a photograph of a fin taken by Reins' expedition in 1975. If the creature actually exists, then researchers believe it could be a plesiosaur. But he died out more than 66 million years ago! But maybe these incredible creatures were able to somehow survive deep under water?
Chupacabra. In our area, this mystical bloodsucking monster is little known. The first data about him appeared in the 70s. But the real fame came to this creature in the 90s with the development of the Internet. This creepy creature attacks livestock and poultry and sucks their blood. Chupacabra is most commonly seen in Puerto Rico. Farmers who watched the practice of killing wild dogs say that the monster, when killing them, did not eat or drag them away, but drained the blood through small incisions. Eyewitnesses say that the chupacabra is the size of a small monkey, while jumping like a kangaroo. The creature has red eyes, hairy skin, a snake-like tongue, and sharp fangs. Feathers are located around the spine, which can be opened. Some believe that these are possibly wings. By the end of the 90s, evidence of the existence of the monster began to grow more and more. He has been credited with killing animals in Mexico, southern Texas and South America. In 2000, a series of incidents involving the creature occurred in Chile. There are many theories about the origin of the mysterious creature. Perhaps this is just a natural but unknown species of predator. Perhaps - the result of foreign genetic experiments. Most serious researchers believe that the chupacabra is just an element of folklore, which the local superstitious people inspired. One can only be sure that news of the tricks of this creature will periodically appear.
The devil from Jersey. They say that in the vicinity of the American city of New Jersey, a terrible humanoid creature wanders. With its scary appearance, it earned the nickname The Devil of Jersey. The legend about him first appeared in the middle of the 18th century. Then the appearance of this creature was considered an omen of war or great disaster. All this time, evidence of a meeting with this creature periodically appeared. There were about 2,000 of them over the centuries. Even today, there are eyewitnesses to meetings with this monster. Although descriptions vary, there are some common indications. The height of the devil is about a meter, the face is of a horse, and the head is elongated, like a collie dog breed. The creature's neck is long, there are half-meter wings on the back, and hooves on the legs. The creature holds its front paws in front of it. Many people believe that this devil knows how to become invisible. It is curious that there are some similarities of it with the Chupacabra. The devil is blamed for the unexplained deaths of dozens of animals and their injuries. Did some eyewitnesses go crazy after meeting him? What kind of creature is this? The theories are similar to those that explain the Chupacabra. One thing is clear, something definitely scary lives in the woods near New Jersey.
The Moth Man. Beginning in November 1966, over the course of 13 months, strange events took place at Point Pleasant, West Virginia. In addition to the many reports of UFO sightings and poltergeists, some witnesses told about an encounter with a strange creature. As stated in the classic book by John Keel, The Prophecy of the Moth, hundreds of witnesses saw the winged humanoid. He is described as a two-meter giant with a wingspan of about three meters. His gray skin was covered in scales. The huge red eyes had a hypnotic effect. The moth man could take off and land vertically, developing speeds up to 130 km / h in the air. Most often, the monster ate large dogs. The creature squealed like a rodent or an electric motor, causing radio and television interference. Some of the eyewitnesses to the meeting with the moth man said that they had an information channel. With his help, eyewitnesses began to receive strange predictions of the future, albeit very inaccurate.
Elves and fairies. There are few people in modern society who believe in the existence of fairies and elves. Some of them are ready to swear by anything that they saw these creatures with their own eyes. In the same way, someone saw Nessie, and someone saw Bigfoot. The stories of elusive little magical creatures are quite ancient, they are found in almost every culture on Earth. The best known to us are the legends about elves, dwarves and trolls from Europe and Scandinavia. These creatures have become heroes of numerous children's fairy tales. Fairies have been described as tiny, ephemeral creatures with wings living in forests. Elves and gnomes lived there as well. However, they looked like a man, differing only in small stature. It is often claimed that they had their own civilization, hidden from our eyes. In the summer of 1919, 13-year-old Harry Anderson saw a column of 20 little men walking one after another. Moonlight illuminated their path. They wore leather pants with suspenders. The men were shirtless, bald, and had pale white skin. As they passed the astonished boy, the creatures muttered something to themselves. In the English Stowmarket in 1842, a farmer described his encounter with fairies as he walked home through the meadows: “There were at least a dozen of them, the largest about a meter high. They moved by holding hands and forming a ring. out of the light. I saw them very clearly. " When the man called his family to look at the fairies, they were gone. In past cultures, elves and fairies were considered quite real, and some of their folklore has reached. Today society has become much more technologically advanced, perhaps in our imagination their place was taken by aliens with their spaceships.
Dover demon. In April 1977, near the town of Dover, Massachusetts, a strange creature was seen several times. He was called a trust demon. Although there was only a few evidence of its appearance, the creature is one of the most mysterious. For the first time, the monster was met by 17-year-old Bill Barnett, who and his friends were driving late at night. Suddenly he saw that an unusual creature was crawling along a stone wall not far from the roadside. Although the other boys saw nothing out of the ordinary, they noted their friend's great shock. Just hours afterward, 15-year-old John Baxter, returning from his girlfriend, saw something wrapped around a tree trunk. His description coincided with the previous one. The final evidence came the next day when 15-year-old Abby Brabham and a friend saw a strange creature in the headlights of a car. It was about 1.2 meters high and stood on two legs. The body was naked with rough skin. His limbs were long and thin, brown in color. The head was shaped like a watermelon, it was as big as the body. The monster's eyes glowed orange. Further studies of this unusual case did not provide a single proof of its reality. True, no motives for deception were also found. Skeptics suggest that teenagers could see a young elk, and ufologists are proving the theory of meeting with aliens.
Loveland lizard. This creature is rather little known, because only two people saw it, albeit separately. On March 3, 1972, a police officer was driving along Riverside Avenue along the Little Miami River in Loveland, Ohio. Suddenly on the side of the road he saw what looked like a dead dog. The policeman stopped to get her out of the way. When the man approached, the creature quickly got up on its hind legs. It turned out that this was not a dog at all, but some kind of monster a meter high. His weight was 20-30 kilograms, his skin was all wrinkled, his body had matted hair, a short tail. The face and head of the monster looked like that of a frog or a lizard. The creature looked at the man and jumped into the river. The officer reported the incident and returned here with a partner. Evidence was immediately found - footprints on the slope that the lizard left when it rushed to the river. This story would have been forgotten, but two weeks later another policeman saw the monster. He also stopped when he saw a strange thing in the middle of the road. And in this case, the lizard disappeared towards the river. Subsequent investigations, that one farmer said he saw some kind of large creatures, like lizards. Since then, no one has seen the lizard.
Living dinosaurs. In Jurassic Park, digital technology was able to create a very realistic dinosaur world. Many are already looking forward to the time when cloning will bring out the long-gone inhabitants of the planet. What if the dinosaurs are still alive? Maybe some of them are not extinct at all? Many people think this is true. For more than 200 years, stories have come from the secluded forests of Africa and South America that the local tribes were familiar with large creatures. Their description perfectly matches the appearance of sauropods and apatosaurs. The natives called them giant divers. In 1913, the German explorer Freicher von Stein said that the pygmies had told him about a strange creature "river plug". He had brown smooth skin, it was about the size of an elephant (up to 10 meters in length), a long flexible neck. The animal ate plants, but it could attack people if they disturbed it. When in 1980 an expedition to these tribes took place, and zoologists showed the large sauropods to the natives, they recognized them as their "river plugs". However, the testimony of the illiterate tribes was not enough. It is assumed that the researchers were able to find huge footprints. And in 1992, the Japanese were able to shoot 15 seconds of the movement of something huge in the water from an airplane in these places. There is no doubt that the search for dinosaurs in pristine forests will continue.
Jumping Jack. This creature is also called Spring-on-heels Jack. It appeared in Victorian England. It is said that this monster attacked its victims in the dark in London in the 19th century. The victims got off with terrible scratches, and it was impossible to catch Jack because of his truly inhuman abilities. The waitress Polly Adams, who suffered from the monster, said that he tore her weekend blouse, touching her belly with iron claws. The victims paint the big picture. The creature is similar to a person, but with a disgusting appearance. Its claws were sharp and iron. He himself was thin, strong, tall and powerful. Jack's eyes were on fire, he himself could spit fire out of his mouth. On the body of the monster was wearing something tight, and on top was a dark cloak. They said that he wore some kind of helmet. And the nickname was given to him by the fact that he knew how to jump to incredible heights, jumping even over walls. The attacks resulted in an official order from the mayor to capture the criminal. But all attempts to catch him were unsuccessful. Rumors of Jack's appearances continued in the following decades. He scared people with his appearance and quickly disappeared. Interestingly, Jack did not kill anyone, only 18-year-old Vesa Lucy was seriously injured, whom Jack blew fire into her face. Who was this Jack? Devilishly clever maniac or demon? Or maybe an alien? We will hardly ever know the answer, and the Jumping Jack remains one of the most mysterious creatures of our time.
