Dale Drinnon features an article about television fisherman Jeremy Wade of "River Monsters" capturing a 280-lb giant freshwater stingray in the waters of Argentina's Parana River near Buenos Aires. Photos of the fisherman and his catch are included, and Drinnon takes the catch further to reveal what it has to do with cryptozoology. It turns out Drinnon had identified freshwater stingrays as the origin of tales of plesiosaurs in the freshwater lakes and rivers of Patagonia. Drinnon's original report on the Patagonian cryptid is included along with some excellent comments from other cryptozoology bloggers, including Austin Whittall of Patagonian Monsters whose comments had sparked Drinnon's stingray identification. Drinnon keeps it to the inland waterways in another report today, too, with more information on the bountiful possibilities of what could lurk behind reports of manlike water creatures, as seen in More Freshwater Monkeys (Sprites. Some of Drinnon's attributions for the creatures he mentions could bleed over into the subject The Professor expounds on in Faerie?: A Small Data-Set Indicating the Possibility that Folkloric Entities or Something Very Much Like Them Could be Real, Part Four. Nearly two hundred years of testimony make the case far more clear-cut while exploring the cultural roots behind the phenomena. And Dr. Beachcombing covers a rather charming incident in the multitude of tales about the Wee Folk in the Case of the Cottingley Fairies. Meanwhile, the aforementioned Austin Whittall has some interesting commentary on legends of Patagonia that may indicate there was once a Neanderthal presence in the region, something often disputed by anthropologists who say there were no Neanderthals in the New World. You'll find Whittall's commentary in Gualicho & Kollon Myths: Based on Neanderthal? There is news today of creatures from the marine realm that are not cryptozoological in nature, but fit better into the natural history pocket, beginning with the videos collected by Billy Cox - best noted for his "De Void" commentaries on UFOlogy - unveiled in At Least Our Brains Are Bigger and finishing up with an octopoid that approaches admirers bearing a gift in The Eight-legged Invader: Incredible Video Shows the Moment an Octopus Heaved Itself from the Water and WALKED on Dry Land.
