The most famous monsters of our time

humanity not only in ancient times was captivated monsters.Even today many people believe in the existence of monsters - monsters powerful and terrible, and often hideous, superhuman capabilities.

Snowman (yeti saskvoch, bigfoot, enzhey)

This legendary humanoid creature, allegedly occurring in various mountainous or forested areas of the Earth.

Although the existence of Bigfoot is approved by many enthusiasts, but in fact it is not confirmed.The main evidence is a short film, shot in 1967 in California, which is most likely a hoax.Perhaps the most surprising quality of the snow man - is his ability to leave no conclusive evidence of its existence.We never found a single dead Bigfoot or its remains - teeth, bones and so on.

According to some hypotheses, in North America, home to thousands of species of Bigfoot, but no one on earth can not provide empirical evidence of its existence but of questionable quality photos.

Loch Ness Monster

This strange creature inhabits the waters of Loch Ness in Scotland.The most common theory is that it chudovische- lived to this day Plesiosaur marine reptile that lived in the era of dinosaurs.Many scientists argue that solitary animal can not dwell on the lake bottom, there must be a whole family, otherwise it will grow old and die.Some believe that the Loch Ness Monster - is a figment of people's imagination, but then how to explain the presence of available photos?

In 1934, Wilson was made most famous photos of Loch Ness monster.In 1960, Tim Dinsdale filmed a monster movement, it moved at a speed of 15 kilometers per hour.Some people believe that Ness - not a monster, it's a generous giant, not more aggressive than sea cow.This species lives in several locations around the world, but attention is drawn only to small inland lakes.Whether it's a freshwater creature?Yes, but some have adapted to the salt water.It got trapped in Loch Ness during the pole shift, when the land rose from the sea in some places and went under the water in the other.Caught thus suscheschvo continued to live his normal life, consuming vegetation and fish and sometimes suddenly sticking his head out of the water, feeling the lack of food.Næss almost blind, and relying on their sense of smell, which is under water is very sensitive to chemicals in the air and catches small particles carried by the wind.Can Ness come out of the lake and clumsily crawl somewhere?Hardly.This essentially need water for respiration, as it has gills on the sides, and so it can not survive without water for more than sticking your head.

Gordon Holmes, the 55-year-old technician from Shipley, located in the English county of Yorkshire, during a trip to Loch Ness was able to remove the video being, which is supposed to Holmes may be the legendary Loch Ness Monster.According to the author shooting creature moving in the water at a speed of 11 nautical miles per hour.Video Holmes has even been shown on the TV channel BBC Scotland, despite the fact that the Scottish media, as a rule, are quite cold for the next reports of allegedly seen on the surface of the lake Ness.

Loch Ness is the largest body of water in the UK, and its depth reaches more than two hundred meters.Fresh water in the lake more than the total volume of fresh water in England and Wales.

first mention of Nessie refer to the beginning of the thirties of the last century, and the famous photograph of the monster was made in 1930 by the surgeon, relax by the lake.Since then it recorded about 4,000 people who reported that they had seen with their own eyes the legendary monster.


This wild beast that kills animals.It is believed that the goat - its favorite prey.Chupacabra in Spanish means "sucking goat", iedrinking the blood of goats.But they can also attack cats, sheep, rabbits, dogs, chickens, ducks, pigs and other animals.

chupacabra descriptions vary widely, but many suggest that the growth of Chupacabra is four or five feet, it has a short powerful legs, long claws and scary glowing red eyes.Chupacabra first became widely known in 1995 in Puerto Rico.Nobody knows for sure, where there was a Chupacabra, but many Latinos believe that its appearance is connected with secret US government experiments in the jungles of Puerto Rico.

Chupacabra supposedly lives in Mexico, Chile, Nicaragua, Spain, Argentina and Florida - almost exclusively in Spanish-speaking areas.Although many consider this being a myth, there are eyewitness accounts of a chupacabra in the United States, primarily in Texas and New Mexico.

media periodically disseminate eyewitness accounts, coming from different regions, conditionally calling "Chupacabra" animals (fox, coyote, jackal), modified by mutation or disease.

Champ of Lake Champlain

world-famous water monster Nessie lives in Loch Ness has many, but not so well-known counterparts around the world.For example, in large Canadian lakes is often observed large animals for which scientists have not yet taken place in the classification of the animal world.

It's about Champa - disturber of the public peace and the water surface freshwater "Lake Champlain.Lake Champlain was spread over 175 km in length with a maximum width of 17 km.The depth of the lake is about 120 meters: enough to hide from prying many-body Champa.Besides geological and petrographic composition bregov lake does not exclude the existence of a fairly large underwater caves.

first mention of the monster from the lake left Samuel de Champlain, who investigated the area near the lake even in 1609.In his notes for iyulY 609, he mentions that saw the creation of the lake, which is described as the serpent with the body like a barrel, and the horse's head.Since the beginning of the nineteenth century, reports of observation of Champa in the lake began to arrive punctually and there was the year that the list of witnesses has not been replenished with new names.

Judging by the descriptions of eyewitnesses Champ holds serpentine head and dark skin.But skeptics consider the possibility of non-animal origin of the phenomena, explaining disturbance on the surface of the lake rises from the bottom of driftwood on a windy day.But observations of eyewitnesses too much and calm pogodu1.Therefore, the study of the lake do seriously.

In 1970 a group was formed LCPI - A study of the phenomenon of Lake Champlain.The Group and its founder Jozef Zarzinski meticulously collected information about the lake monster and conduct research.In July 1977, it was obtained the first photo of Champa: aquatic animal kindly pose Sandra Mansi, showing above the water torso and head on .dlinnoy neck.Analysis of the photographs in Smisonovskom Institute showed that the image in the photo do not match any known living creature of Lake Champlain.

In addition, an analysis based on an assessment of the size of the waves, gave guidance in assessing the size of the animal - from 4.8 to 17 meters.The depth of the lagoon, where the picture is taken, does not exceed 5 meters, which is also, to some extent, it gives an indication of the dimensions of the animal.In summer 2005 fish Dick Afolter filmed on camera floats on the surface next to his boat a large object - Champa.Analysts FBI confirmed the authenticity of the recording and the lack of image manipulations.

While scientists can not say with confidence to a group of animals is Champ - cetacean mammals or reptiles.Today Champ is kriptidom and attraction of Lake Champlain.

giant squid

The chronicles Nordic preserved reports of beached monster.In 1639 the Icelandic annals reported beached giant squid.November 30, 1861 sailors from the French corvette "Alekton" bulge of the earth near the Canary Islands, seen on the surface of a giant octopus.His red body was about six meters long, and eyes the size of a cannon ball.Scared sailors fired at the animal cannon, and then tried to raise his body on board.

This they failed (weighed squid, it is estimated that about two tons), but they were able to get a fragment of its body weight of about twenty kilograms, and the ship's artist made a drawing of the animal.The evidence produced in Europe sensation.The French Academy of Sciences acknowledged the existence of giant squid.

In 1873, octopus caught again.This occurred off the coast of Newfoundland.The prisoner was torn violently from side to side, but people still managed to pull him to the surface.Then they saw a giant squid.One of the fishermen, not frightened, crept to the squid back and killed him, plunging head long knife.The animal was taken to the Natural History Museum in London.The length of the squid was ten meters.

Kroon giant squid for the first time more than 21 meters long managed to shoot a Japanese scientist in 2004 at a depth of one thousand meters.


believed that in Canada the largest number of lakes in the cold waters inhabited by monsters.So it is not surprising that, according to many witnesses, in the waters of Okanagan Lake, located in British Columbia, home to monster Ogopogo.

Aboriginal Indian name monster - Nha-and-teak or Naytaka (Ozerny daemon), and the name of the comic "Ogopogo" comes from the old musical songs of 20 years of the twentieth century.In the area of ​​the lake monster preserved image - creature with a long neck, a narrow body and four flippers.According to legend, the Ogopogo, the lake or the daemon is similar to a log long body (length - 4-9 m, thickness - 40-60 centimeters), its head resembles a horse or a goat.Ogopogo is a predator, and lives on a lonely island of Rattlesnake.Archival records "History of Okanagan Mission" tells of his meetings with the Ogopogo even in 1872.Subsequently, the monster saw more than 200 people.

There are many Indian legends associated with the emergence and existence of the Gran.According to one of them, a monster, holding up a strong wave of his tail, sinking canoe Indian chief Timbasketa with the whole family.For this reason, trying to appease the monster, the Indians are always in the middle of the lake dropped into the water any small pets, and in certain areas of the reservoir never fished.The first European settlers, who believed in the reality of the Ogopogo, organized patrolling the coast.In 1926, when the lake began to walk steam power assumed to equip it with the means to repel the monster.That by 1926 is the most massive evidence of a meeting with the Lake District a monster when he saw both passengers about thirty cars.

In 1947, while watching the passengers Ogopogo a few boats, and with the opening in 1958 the pontoon bridge started coming new messages from people crossing the bridge on the lake.

One of the most convincing evidence of the existence of reality Ogopogo is a photograph taken in 1968 by Arthur Foldenom.It captures a dark object moving under water.In 1989, the Canadian Ken Chaplin shot video of three and a half minutes, where you can see long body, writhing beneath the surface.

As always in such cases, people are trying to find a plausible explanation for the incredible things.At this time, members of the Federation of British-Colombian naturalists have declared that this is an optical illusion caused by a "wave-like movements of the smooth surface of the lake under specific lighting conditions," resulted in an error: the shadows of the waves took over the underwater creatures.

There are also numerous photos taken by different people in the last decade.

Although any links between Indian legend and reality of existence of monsters in our time there are no many eyewitnesses continue to report strange things going on in the waters of the lake.According to John Kirk, an expert on Ogopogo cryptozoological Scientific Club of British Columbia, there are now more evidence for the existence of the mysterious monster in Lake Okanagan than in Loch Ness.
