Ogopogo Lake Monster Caught On Film?

Image
Footage of the Ogopogo at Lake Okanagan
Ogopogo or Naitaka (Salish: n'ha-a-itk, "lake demon") is the name given to a cryptid lake monster reported to live in Okanagan Lake, in British Columbia, Canada. Ogopogo has been allegedly seen by First Nations people since the 19th century. The most common description of Ogopogo is a forty- to fifty-foot-long (12 to 15 m) sea serpent. It has supposedly been photographed and even been caught on tape.

Actual footage of what we think IS the Ogopogo lake monster, filmed just outside of Kelowna BC.

From Director Tim Fasano: Florida Skunk Ape Hunt - The Movie

Interesting film from director Tim Fasano, a Skunk Ape researcher from Florida. In the film, you can see him and Tom Biscardi at a "secret" swampy location looking for the elusive Florida Skunk Ape. It's probably not as exciting to watch as Finding Bigfoot, but at least you'll learn a thing or two from these experts.

Did they catch anything on tape? You'll have to watch and find out! Enjoy.

Fossilized Eyes Reveal a Predator's Sharp Vision

Image
Palaeontologists have uncovered half-a-billion-year-old fossils demonstrating that primitive animals had excellent vision.

Below is an article by LiveScience:
Ancient animals saw the world through multi-faceted compound eyes, a new fossil discovery reveals. The ancient eyes, which date back half a billion years, probably belonged to a predator, likely a giant shrimplike creature.

Like a modern fly, the ancient creature relied on compound eyes consisting of thousands of separate lenses to see the world. Each lens provides a pixel of vision. The more lenses, the better the creature could see. The mysterious ancient shrimp saw better than any other animal yet discovered from its era: Its eyes contained 3,000 lenses.

The fossil eyes were found by Australian researchers on Kangaroo Island, South Australia. They're 515 million years old, meaning the animal lived just after the "Cambrian Explosion," a sudden burst of life and diversity that began 540 million years ago.

FB/FB Talks About The Existence of Bigfoot In Florida

Bigfoot In Florida
Uploaded by SasquatchWatcher on Jun 29, 2011

Is Bigfoot in Florida? This video discusses and shows the evidence for Bigfoot (Skunk Ape) in Florida. If it is in Florida then it certainly is not rare. There must be a self sustaining breeding population that has likely been there for Millions of years.

Finding Sea Monsters is What The New Deadliest Catch Spin-off Special Is About

Image
The Hillstrands Hunt for a Sea Monster
Bigfoot isn't the only monster known to be lurking near Alaska. Witnesses recently caught on film a prehistoric sea animal long thought to be extinct. The Discovery Channel has a new special that's going to start airing called "Alaskan Monster Hunt". Featuring Deadliest Catch's the Hillstrand brothers, it's probably going to be an action packed adventure. The special will premiere Tuesday, July 19, at 10 p.m. after a new episode of Deadliest Catch.




Read the TV Guide Exclusive News below:
Two of Discovery Channel's Deadliest Catch captains are trading crab fishing for a different kind of prey: Sea monsters. Brothers Johnathan Hillstrand and Andy Hillstrand have signed on to star in the special Alaskan Monster Hunt, which airs next month.

Alaskan Monster Hunt will follow the Hillstrand brothers as they search for clues to the mystery of Alaska's own version of the Loch Ness Monster. The brothers — normally the capta…

Finding Bigfoot: Cliff Barackman "Frozen Bigfoot" (Washington) Silver Star Mountain Commentary

Image
Every week, Cliff gives us a little debriefing of the show Finding Bigfoot on Animal Planet. This week, he talks about the Silver Star Mountain photos of Bigfoot and how he believe it to be a real sasquatch. You can read the full commentary by clicking here. Below is what he thought about the episode:


[...] Overall, I don't have any real complaints about this episode. What you see is what you get, and all of it pretty much happened the way it was shown. The howls were real. The mumbling voices at the base of Silver Star really were heard by Matt and Bobo, but time didn't allow us to investigate the area for two nights. Southwest Washington still has bigfoots in it, and not far at all from Vancouver, WA. That's why I live a stone's throw away.

Recent Sighting Report: Sawyer County, Wisconsin Man Claims to Have Witnessed Two Bigfoot, an Adult and Juvenile

Image
Date: June 26, 2011
Persons: Young man who works for the state
Location: Nelson Lake, Wisconsin
Context: While fishing from his canoe, the young man spots a child sasquatch with "very thick brown hair all over it's body" and saw a large ape-like head rising above the lower tree boughs.
Source: naturalplane.blogspot.com

I received this email last evening from a young man in Sawyer County, Wisconsin who claims to have witnessed two Bigfoot, an adult and juvenile, while fishing:

Sir - I am writing about a sighting I had on June 26th around 8:00 pm at Nelson Lake, Wisconsin. I was fishing from my canoe about 30 yds. from the shore near Tannings Point when I noticed a whimpering sound. It was coming from the woods at the shoreline. It sounded like a dog whining, so I stopped what I was doing to watch the woods to see if anything appeared. After a few seconds I saw a child scampering from the woods. I didn't get a very good look but the child had very thick brown hair all over i…

Robert Lindsay: Bear Hunter's Tale of Bigfoots Forcing a Man to Mate with Female Sasquatch

Albert Ostman talking about how he was kidnapped in 1924 by a family of Bigfoot on Vancouver Island, British Columbia.
Yes, ladies and gentlemen, there is a part two of the Bear Hunter's tale. This is a great follow up by Robert Lindsay. Whether you believe Bear Hunter or not, he tells a very intriguing story.

Here's more from Bear Hunter:

Bear Hunter Interview Part 2: More Outrageous Bigfoot Allegations and Revelations
Here is the second part of my interview with a fellow I will call Bear Hunter. The widely read first part is here.

It deals with a wide range of subjects, including why we have a hard time getting good trailcam videos of Bigfoots, Bigfoots burying their dead in peat bogs, Bigfoot gravediggers who dug up a Bigfoot grave and found a skeleton of a Bigfoot hand, a trapper who is more or less living with a group of Bigfoots, an wilderness area with a huge number of disappearances that may be Bigfoot-related, and most outrageously of all, a man who claims that he was ki…

Questions like, what does a sasquatch poop look like, why can't we find these creatures, where are the bones, and some questions about the show. Since it's Cliff, this interview is full of useful information.

Finding Bigfoot Making Matt Moneymaker Quite Popular With the Ladies Nowadays

Image
We always knew Matt Moneymaker was a ladies man. Just look at his tweet messages, all girls!... Just joking with you Matt.

Did you know the BFRO has a custom Ford Roadster? The last time it was spotted in public was in Las Vegas, Nevada when a couple of FindingBigfoot fangirls borrowed it for a photo shoot. Hot damn!

We've been following Matt on Twitter and he's been answering some interesting questions lately:

Duh!
Look, there's only one way to spell my last name, and that's with a capital M!

Strange Mud on the Side of Truck and Sasquatch Footprint Found in Umatilla National Forest

Strange mud on the side of the pickup.
Update: NWBigfoot said this place is in the Umatilla National Forest. Forest road 6235. Nearest town would probably be Troy Oregon or Elgin, Oregon.

Interesting videos from an unknown Bigfoot research group who goes by the name of NWBigfoot. These clips look really recent and they were just uploaded on June 28. The witness encountered two types of Bigfoot activity in the Umatilla National Forest.

Overall, it's a great find by the team. We hope to post more of their videos as they come along.

Here's a description of the first activity (mud on side of truck):
Took a walk in the woods, heard a weird wailing sound. When we returned to the truck there were strange mud swirls at the door handles on the driver's side. They were only on that side and only at the door handles. Bigfoot tried to steal my truck!!! They need to put a bait car in the Umatilla National Forest.
Description of second activity (large footprints):

Prank Alert!: N.O.B.S. Group Claims 'Bigfoot' Sighting In New Orleans' City Park

Alleged Home Video Catches Suspicious Creature
Update: Wow! These guys even came out with a press release of their own, how professional. Click here to read.

This just in from WDSU.com, New Orleans. Looks like an amateur prank to us, but we'll let you decide:

NEW ORLEANS -- In what appears to be a wink and a nod to the recent sightings of wildlife around New Orleans, a group calling itself the New Orleans Bigfoot Society has taken to the web to share a video of what they claim is bigfoot spotted in City Park.

The video, posted Monday on YouTube, is introduced by a man claiming to be biology doctorate Xavier Jenks. But Jenks appears more likely to be an actor, and the video a well-produced prank.

The "home video" Jenks obtained shows a man catching a fish in a pond at the park, and in the background -- when the video is slowed and zoomed -- something bigfoot-esque can be seen on the opposite shore.

In a news release, the group claims to have taken hair and fecal samples fro…

Tim Fasano Compares Finding Bigfoot to His Best Bud Tom Biscardi

Tim Fasano has grown pretty bitter lately after not getting picked up by the Animal Planet Finding Bigfoot show. A few months ago, when the producers of the new show started scouting for Finding Bigfoot team members, Fasano actually received a phone call. The producer of the show asked him important questions about Skunk Apes and Native Americans, but we're not sure how that interview went.

Unfortunately, Fasano didn't get the job, and his life has been consumed with bitterness. Watch his latest break down video labeled: "Finding Bigfoot: BFRO Florida Expedition Compared To Fasano and Biscardi Expedition"

If you think we're picking on Tim for no reason, we're not. We admire the man for what he does. The only thing we're trying to do is to get him to realize that he could be hurting his chances of getting his own TV show if he keeps bashing Matt Moneymaker and the Finding Bigfoot show.

We do it because we care.

Erickson Project: Clarification on the Two Dead Bigfoot Bodies, Friend of Shooter Responds

Image
On Monday, Robert Lindsay sent me a link to his article about an extraordinary claim by a man known as "Bear Hunter". This man tells a tale of another hunter who during an illegal bear hunting season shot and killed two Bigfoots. He said the man knew the larger creature he shot wasn't a bear because it was standing upright and waving it's arms. As we read the story, it became more intriguing and started to sound like the National Inquirer magazine interviews. It went into great details about how this man has killed over a 1000 bears in his lifetime, and how he might have chopped up the bodies and threw it into his freezer for safekeeping.

One Bigfoot he shot was just a juvenile and actually died in the shooter's arms. "The hunter said that two small creatures, 'half-bear and half-ape,' appeared sometimes on two legs and sometimes on four legs. They got aggressive with him and moved very close to him. At one point, one got on a ledge above him and se…

FB/FB: White Bigfoot Filmed in Pennsylvania Break Down

Break Down of White bigfoot filmed in Pennsylvania

TeamYin breaks down a video posted last year by YouTube user Bobywade. It's an interesting breakdown, but they didn't include the recently enhanced version of the footage we discovered on June 26. In any case, watch them try to prove it's a "real" albino Bigfoot in the footage.

Animals Compared to Humans: Meerkats attend scorpion-hunting kindergarten

Researchers are finding out that although meerkats are good teachers, they're not that smart.
Teaching

We may be the only animals to go to school, but we are not the only ones that can teach. Meerkats, for example, are taught the most important life skills they need by their elders. It might seem that intelligence is the key to being a good teacher, but researchers believe this is not necessarily true for these animals. Meerkats rely on instinct when they are teaching their young how to kill scorpions.

Finding Bigfoot: MrMayDX08 Review of "Frozen Bigfoot"

The show just keeps getting better and better for MrMayDX08. Last week, he gave the Finding Bigfoot "Fishing for Bigfoot in Oregon" episode a B, but this episode was so much better. He gives this one an A- or 8.5 out of 10 stars, which is spectacular. Watch his review.



This is BIG! The "Jurassic Park" trilogy is coming to Blu-ray on October 25

This is what you've been waiting for. Jurassic Park the trilogy is coming to Blu-ray in October of this year. Here's what the press said about this news:

"It was one of Hollywood's first modern CGI marvels, but it's taken quite a while for Universal to say the magic word on a Blu-ray release for the Jurassic Park (for now still a) Trilogy. No more—it's out this October 25th. Nature found a way." - Kyle Wagner, Gizmodo

"We've had to wait quite a while, but after Dreamworks and Steven Spielberg signed up with Universal three years ago, the Jurassic Park Trilogy will finally be available on Blu-ray this fall. All three flicks have been restored and remastered and John Williams' orchestral score will come home in a 7.1 DTS-HD MA encoding. Also included are over two hours of new special features with a six part Return to Jurassic Park documentary focusing on the cast and crew of the films. If that's not enough, there's also a plan for a &…

Bigfoot 'Exists' in New Film

Image
'Exists', a new Bigfoot thriller by "Blair Witch Project" director Eduardo Sanchez begins shooting outside Austin, Texas in October this year. "The film is the first in a trilogy exploring and reinventing the Bigfoot myth," Sanchez said. "We all remember the terror of watching such classics as 'The Legend of Boggy Creek,' and I look forward to making Bigfoot scary again."

Considering all the hype and interest surrounding Bigfoot nowadays, this is a great move by the famed movie director.

From www.darkhorizons.com
"Blair Witch Project" director Eduardo Sanchez is set to helm the sasquatch thriller "Exists" for Haxan Films and Amber Entertainment reports Variety.

Jamie Nash and Sanchez penned the script about a group of twentysomethings who take a trip to a cabin deep in the wooded wilderness and are methodically hunted by a Bigfoot-like beast.

Dr. Anna Nekaris Lecture - Searching for the Yeti

Dr. Anna Nekaris of Oxford Brooks University in Great Britain, presents her views on the possibility of the existence of a Yeti, or Bigfoot. She provides an academic perspective on the possible existence of an unknown, extremely large, hominid.

Dr. Anna Nekaris describes herself as:
a member of the IUCN Primates Specialist Group, Conservation Working Party of the Primate Society of Great Britain, and on the editorial board of Endangered Species Research and Folia Primatologica. I have been studying the behaviour, ecology, conservation and taxonomy of Asian mammals since 1994, although my research has also taken me to Kenya, Uganda, Senegal, Costa Rica, and Trinidad. My primary interests lie with Asia’s slow and slender lorises.
