To dispel rumours that he(they?) are past their best-before date and are slowing down, Ogopogo surfaced to strut his stuff yesterday:

Ogopogo Surfaces!

You clearly can't keep a good plesiosaur down for long. (Many paleontologists though contend that Ogopogo is rather a remnant of the tylosaur species.)

Evidently Ogopogo was just frolicking in the sun as there were no reports of missing persons or pets in the Lake Okanagan area yesterday.

The local authorities are quite protective of the tourist trade. They are therefore careful to keep very quiet about the annual toll of victims taken by Ogopogo. While tourists are eager to visit and see the waters in which Ogopogo lurks, typically they also like to return to tell the tale to friends and neighbours.

Here's a rare account from a person who saw Champ but lived to tell the tale:

Here's a skeleton of one of Manipogo's ancestors that was found in 1974 near Morden, Manitoba in a farmer's field that was only a few thousand years ago at the bottom of Lake Agassiz:



I'd venture to say Grandfather Manipogo looked a lot more vigorous when still alive.

Here's a cryptid story you fellows  may enjoy. Please bear in mind I did not witness it myself, it was told to me by someone who did.
A few years ago, at a friend's house one night; he pulls me aside and asks if I've ever heard any stories about "local" bigfoot-type creatures (I live in southeastern KY). I told him sure, that I remembered hearing stories in my childhood about a local cryptid simply called the "Hollerin' Thang"; a sasquatch-like beast that supposedly shrieks like a bobcat or something. My friend then told me this story:

He and a friend were at a local concert one night. The friend did not have a ride him. My friend offered to take him home. He lived in a rural area; about forty-five minutes from the town the concert was in. On the way, not too far from where the friend lived; they come around a curve in the highway and there's something in the road. My friend stops his truck and turns his flashers on. To him, it looked like a piece of tree or large Bush had slid off the hillside into the road; and he wanted to move it out of the way so it wouldn't cause an accident or some such. He opens his truck door and his half way out of the truck when he said the "bush" just stooood up (he exaggerated the pronunciation of the word stood to express  the thing's unusual height). He said its eyes reflected red in the headlights. He said its fur, hair or whatever looked like mottled treebark; as if it was mossy or something. He said it stood perfectly motionless. He said with its coloration and complete lack of movement; you could have walked past it a hundred times in the woods and not see it. He said he froze; not really terrified as by the time he rationalized what was going on it was all over. Standing roughly on the yellow line according to him; it stepped off the road in one step; disappearing into a dark meadow on the passenger side of the truck. After telling me this story, my friend admitted he really hoped it was some crazy-tall lunatic in a ghillie suit; out there pranking or whatever. But he said the way it moved and the distance it covered in one step; he doesn't truly think so. He told me he doesn't believe in things like sasquatch; but he didn't know what else to call it.

Great story! These are the kind of sightings that everyday folks seem to have all over the country. People certainly are seeing something and not all of them are cranks or lying.

My parents just got back from Scotland. They weren’t keen on going to Loch Ness. They were in the area and I convinced them it would be silly not to. Nessie is objectively the 9th Wonder of the World just after Bigfoot and just ahead of a Yeti right? (if you believe Yeti’s and Bigfoot are not one and the same)Turns out the museum was amazing and they loved it.
