    SNIP Lowe tells Entertainment Weekly the encounter took place in the Ozark Mountains, which stretch through Arkansas, Missouri and Oklahoma. Lowe says he and his sons were camping there to investigate a bigfoot-like creature known to locals as a “wood ape” during a shoot for “The Lowe Files” when something began to approach their camp. Lowe says he was lying on the ground thinking he was going to be killed. SNIP
  • JOHNNY DEPP SAYS HE WAS ATTACKED BY CHUPACABRA: ‘I FOUGHT WITH IT FOR HOURS.’

    What is Johnny Depp really afraid of? Is he really under attack from El Chupacabra, a reptilian monster who sucks the blood from goats? That is what he told reporters in Tokyo recently. Why is Depp building a fortress from five Hollywood Hills mansions in a cul-de-sac in Hollywood Hills? Is Johnny Depp losing his grip on reality in the wake of his messy divorce from Amber Heard? Is he really spending money irresponsibly? Perhaps there is a more rational explanation. As negative reports roll in about Johnny Depp’s extravagant spending, odd purchases, and strange behavior, one has to wonder...

His interests have taken him to some out-of-the-way places where he has witnessed bizarre happenings. He has watched a corpse having a stake...

The intruder was a giant monitor lizard, that looked as tall as an adult human, was standing upright on its hind legs with its mouth around the door knob.

The creature has been caught on camera by a holidaymaker – could this finally be the evidence needed to convince the world that the abominable snowman actually exists? The slightly shaky and grainy footage appears to show a...

    A breed of sea snake thought to be extinct for years was recently discovered off the west coast of Australia, another in a string of similar findings among species scientists believed were lost forever. It was the first time the species of snakes was seen in more than 15 years since disappearing from the Timor Sea, according to researchers at Australia's James Cook University who identified the snakes. The discovery of the Short Nose sea snake was confirmed after an Australia Parks and Wildlife officer sent a photo to researchers for identification, the university said. The study's lead author, Blanche...

    Cryptozoology is the science and study of unknown creatures not as yet catalogued by conventional science. Even so, that doesn't stop these strange beings from making their appearances all about our world, sometimes intruding into your own neighborhoods. Some may even be watching you as you go into your backyard to sit on your patio. Or perhaps they might be watching you from the bushes as you come home at night. One thing is certain, they like to pop into our world for a visit, but seem aware that they're being hunted, so are quick to vanish as abruptly as...

    Scientists from the Senckenberg Center for Human Evolution and Palaeoenvironment in Tübingen, and the Senckenberg Research Institute in Frankfurt, analyzed stable carbon isotopes from the tooth enamel of the little-known giant ape Gigantopithecus. "Unfortunately, there are very few fossil finds of Gigantopithecus -- only a few large teeth and bones from the lower mandible are known," Hervé Bocherens of the University of Tubingen said in a press release. Those fossils are from China and Thailand, which had open savannas and wooden landscapes. The new study of carbon isotopes indicates that Gigantopithecus was a vegetarian that lived only in forests. "Relatives...

    Some say it's like something out of a science fiction movie, others say it's from another world. But the bizarre and dangerous sea creature a woman discovered washed ashore at Broadbeach along the Gold Coast of Australia is actually a blue dragon. Lucinda Fry came across the creepy, electric-blue sea slug in Queensland and captured video of the little sea creature, which Daily Mail Australia posted: [video at link] The nudibranch is not that big, measuring 1.2 inches at maturity, but it packs a punch. "I have handled them before and wasn't stung, but I would not recommend anyone pick...

Ingrid Schön 23, of Germany and Adi Hassan, 22 of France decided to head back into town when they heard the breaking of branches and loud footsteps heading towards them.

    YOWIE hunter Paul Compton has long believed a giant animal lives in the Glen Innes district - and he claims he finally has photos to prove it. Two days before Christmas, Mr Compton set up a wild view trail camera in an area north west of Glen Innes he has been watching for some time. A week later he returned, finding the camera - triggered by movement - had shot 921 images, including two showing a blurred black figure he claims to be the elusive animal. “There had been a lot of activity there - rocks moved, broken tree limbs...

    A TERRIFIED man set himself on fire after claiming he came face-to-face with a Yeti – who told him he would die soon. The disturbed man was so scared by the "meeting" that he doused himself in petrol and set himself alight. The incident happened in the village of Malyy Manok, in the Republic of Khakassia, in south-central Russia. He said he came face to face with the mythical creature – also known as the Abominbal Snowman – in the Taiga forest. The man died from his injuries. Yetis are claimed to be large, ape-like beasts living in the Himalayan...

    For more than 200 years, people living in or passing through New Jersey's Pinelands have reported seeing a strange, winged creature that has come to be known as the Jersey Devil. There are tons of stories about the monster, and thousands of witnesses who claim they have encountered it. Late Tuesday night, I received an email from a reader who recently became one of those witnesses. Dave Black of Little Egg Harbor Township was driving home from his security guard job in Atlantic City when he saw what he thought was a llama running in and out of the trees...

    BIZARRE images of the insides of a wild pig – which has FLUORESCENT blue fat – have emerged online leaving people scratching their heads. Blue pigmentation is often caused by copper poisoning – but the land where the animal was shot only has mercury mine shafts. The post's author – GlendilTEK – on imgur website wrote how none of the pigs shot by his in-laws on the Californian ranch had blue fat. He wrote how the rest of the pig was "normal" – the meat, the blood, and the hide.

    Visibly straining as he holds it aloft, a Japanese fisherman grimaces as he proudly displays a terrifyingly large fish caught in the waters off Japan. With a gaping mouth large enough to swallow a small child, this creature - believed to be a wolffish - would not look out of place in a science fiction film. The massive catch was reeled in by Hirasaka Hiroshi, a fisherman who has made a career of landing and then eating unusual fish. Normally growing to about 1.2m in length, the wolffish Hirasaka caught measured close to two metres
