In a manner of speaking, yes, Bigfoot did exist — although, perhaps not in the way many modern day cryptid enthusiasts surmise. In a piece written for Smithsonian's Hominid Hunting, Erin Wayman serves up the facts on Gigantopithecus — the car-sized ...

Nearly 10,000 new species are added to the rolls of (crypto)zoology each year, and a New Snake in Tanzania: 'Fierce, Probably Venomous' makes our planet a little more dangerous while other beasts have been around all this time considering an 'Extinct' Galapagos Tortoise Reappears after more than a century. Animalia aren't the only eukaryotic game in town as plants emphasize their weirdness with the emergence of 'Worm-Eating' Underground Leaves Discovered in Carnivorous Plant. Other strange critters are just misclassified and may have mundane origins considering MacFarlane's Bear.

Finding Bigfoot: Rhode Island Video Debrief

Todd Standing Interviewed about his Search and Rescue Experience

While many Bigfoot investigators believe the North American hominid is a relic Gigantopithecus blackii, others have said there is no way the speedy giant is the same as the lumbering, 1,200-pound ancient behemoth, believed to have moved about with knuckles on the ground, like the modern mountain gorilla. Erin Wayman has the history of Gigantopithecus research in this blog posting. Meanwhile, Lon Strickler goes to the historical record for the tales of something that terrorized the populace of the Margeride Mountains in France for three years in the 18th century and became known as The Beast of GĂ©vaudan, while Loren Coleman doesn't have to go nearly so far back in the archives to find the report of something mysterious from the Philippines, described in Ten Years Ago: Pinatubo Monsters. And, since it's always good to know what critter has you by the leg, Jon Downes presents a monograph by Walter E. Meshaka, Jr, of State Museum of Pennslvania, downloadable in PDF at a link provided in A Runaway Train in the Making: The Exotic Amphibians, Reptiles, Turtles, and Crocodilians of Florida (Via Herp Digest).

We don't have to discuss lake monsters or Sasquatch when pursuing maverick biology but it sure does help. Today thrill to the discoveries that infuriatingly blur the lines between the mainstream and the strange, beginning with Malcolm Smith's translation of Christian le Noel's article covering "bush dwarves". They've haunted African folklore for centuries and lurk in the shadows to this very day, albeit with a dearth of evidence. Continuing our celebration of cryptozoology, Loren Coleman begins our stories that show new creatures are continuing to be discovered with the First Photo of a Living, Newly Discovered Myanmar Monkey, while Dale Drinnon announces a New Mouse Lemur Species Discovered which weighs a little more than a ping-pong ball.

Dale Drinnon wedges us into the crytpid corner today, begininning a run of aquatic creature reports with a photo placed online by a woman who photographed it in northwestern Argentina. Does this look like a river serpent, boulders protruding from a fairly swift flowing stream, or a naked person undulating through the water? Make sure you look quickly, since there is some indication the photographer may require the photo be taken offline. Jon Downes follows the photo with a video of something in the water and mutters Whilst on the Subject of Argentine Aquatic Cryptids... Then it's Drinnon's turn to dive back into the murky depths of the waters that have put forth images of swimming weirdies represented in Von Ferry, Caddy, and Maine: Water-Horses Revisited, as well as Some More New England Sea-Serpent Notes and Thor Vs. Super-Eel Lindorm. Lest you think that's a pretty good summation of water monsters, there is news from the natural history corner that touches on the water monster realm, offering excellent images to accompany the tale of a young man who no doubt found inspiration in Sunday School with the story of the multitude that loafs and fishes and turned it into the life depicted in Monster Fish and Me!

Major Announcement from Toby Johnson!!!

Sometimes things happen in life that send ya packing.

It's been a while since I've informed any members of the OSS just how the website is doing and what my final plan is for the OSS. I don't even know if there is a demand for a response to my last email letter. All I know is that the OSS and Squatch'n in general got a bit overwhelming. Of course the religious implications sent me reeling and due to what I witnessed in Fall 2011, I felt as though "Messing with Squatch" was messing with me!!

Hence The Genesis Project

If ya don't know what the blankety blank I am talking about, I will go ahead and let you look over The Genesis Project website for a couple months and hopefully that will clear up any questions about why the OSS went away, but never vanished.

So what am I saying here?


I have been working privately with some people in the field and digesting how to do this. As anything thats important, you want it to be right...and if it is not,,,don't deliver an unready effort.

The OSS has been a huge part of my life as well as my family,,,,loads of fun and loads of work...enough of the semantics.

I miss it terribly and want to invite you all to the OSS 2012 in Portland, Oregon
The details will come day by day, hour by hour. I can say that it is slotted for the middle of October, if not Halloween weekend.

Venue has yet to be decided, but guest speakers are loading up
BOB GIMLIN has signed on and we are going from there.

Keep me in your prayers and I will do the same for you.

Also, Bigfoot and Beer has been a huge hit..however the rights to the name are copy written. So soon we will announce Squatch & Suds held at brewer somewhere in the NW. It will be a monthly venue with speakers to warm up the next 9 months.

No idea about the rest......any questions email me here, or at my other email

Thank You
and God Bless

Review: Finding Bigfoot 1-8-12

This was a fair-to-good episode, not great. which had as its centerpiece a piece of footage taken by two local Rhode Island paranormal researchers which shows a dark figure swinging its arms, but the team cannot determine anything from it. They do a comparison with Bobo as the subject, but still cannot make a determination other than that the subject appears to be smaller than Bobo. Then they undertake night operations, where they hear knocking, but nothing definitive. They leave Cliff out there alone and go to meet with the residents of New Greenwich, in a town hall meeting, where they get several reports, including a gentleman who brings them a plaster cast and also where he dug a print out of the ground. They go to the site of a sighting from 1974 of a white Sasquatch by a gentleman on a bike, and also go to the location of the footprint find, where Ranae says she thinks it was a jogger wering glove-shaped shoes. Bobo and Matt are not so sure, however. Then they reunite with Cliff, and undertake an unusual night operation in which they have Ranae in a tree trying to flush something towards her. This does not work however, but they hear what sounds like a knock and a splash. All in all, not as good as last week's. About a 3 1/2 out of 5 stars.

Mechele R. Dillard reports on Matt Moneymaker's claim of a close encounter with a Bigfoot in eastern Ohio in 1994 and another close approach of a Bigfoot to the cast and crew of Finding Bigfoot, the Animal Planet reality show in which Moneymaker, the founder of Bigfoot Field Researcher Organization, is one of the stars. The comments come from a television news interview and include Moneymaker's somewhat surprising conclusion about what sort of creature Bigfoot is. Elsewhere, another legendary creature has been striking terror into Malaysian hearts, leading to reports of villagers patrolling the night to prevent its depridations. Skeptic Benjamin Radford offers his opinion of the creature in The Legendary 'Oily Man' Monster Terrorizes Malaysia. Meanwhile, Dr. Karl Shuker gets metaphysical with an explanation of how to Grow Your Own Homunculus.
