    Ever since M. King Hubbert in the 1950s convinced a lot of people with his "peak oil" theory that production would collapse and we'd eventually exhaust our crude supplies, the clock has been running. And running. And it will continue to run for some time, as technology and new discoveries show that there's still an ocean of oil under our feet.Engineering and Technology Magazine reported this week that BP — the company that once wanted to be known as "Beyond Petroleum" rather than "British Petroleum" — is saying "the world is no longer at risk of running out of resources.""Thanks...
  • Two-headed snake a unique find for herpetology lab

    Twice as nice: The two-headed garter snake is in the care of the Herpetology lab on East Campus. The University of Nebraska–Lincoln's herpetology lab is seeing double after securing a two-headed garter snake. The newborn bicephalic garter snake was discovered by Joshua Marshall of Hastings while clearing brush in Clay Center on Sept. 4. "I lifted up a log and wasn't surprised to see two small snakes, but then I realized that they weren't making great progress because there were two heads," he said. Once Marshall realized it was a two-headed snake, he placed it in a jar and...

    After skipping 2021 out of COVID caution, the long-running Oklahoma Bigfoot Symposium returned in March to a crowd of believers, some who say they’ve had their own close encounters with the fabled beast. Cherokee Nation citizen, Sissy Turner, said that as a child she saw Bigfoot twice, the first time with her brother in Hulbert, then later in the same rural area next to a lone tree. “We were just goofing off, running up the road and stuff,” she said. “So, we looked over and right next to the tree, it was standing, and it had its arm up on...
  • Australian Scientists Are Attempting To Bring The Thylacine Back From Extinction

    Nearly 90 years after the last thylacine died, a group of scientists at the University of Melbourne, Australia, are attempting to bring the extinct marsupial back to life Thylacines, also known as Tasmanian tigers (despite being a marsupial and looking nothing like a tiger apart from their stripy back), are thought to have gone extinct back in 1936, when Benjamin – the last confirmed member of the species – died in captivity at Hobart’s Beaumaris Zoo. Reports of thylacine sightings in the wild continued long after Benjamin died, with many people hopeful that they might still be alive out there...
  • Australian Scientists Plan to Resurrect the Extinct Tasmanian Tiger-An ambitious new project aims to bring an iconic marsupial species back from the dead.

    The Tasmanian tiger, or thylacine, is one of Australia's most iconic species. Even though it has been extinct since 1936, the slender, striped marsupial maintains its place in Australian mythology because of a constant string of supposed sightings that has captivated the public and the media. Just last year, one group claimed to have spotted the "Tassie tiger" padding through Australia's forests. The claims were never verified. Sadly, the Tasmanian tiger is gone -- but with advances in biotechnology, that might not have to be the case. A group of researchers from the University of Melbourne plan to bring the...

    They’re out there. Shadowy creatures of the night making mischief, or worse, under the cover of darkness. These magnified legends have wormed their way into the subconscious, propelling legions of seekers to swarm dense North American forests in search of Bigfoot. Ken Carter of Martinez has never seen one. But he says he has had close encounters — red eyes eerily glowing in the woods that he swears could not have been an animal. He has heard grunting and stomping in his campsite and once found a big handprint where something smacked the camper shell in the wee hours, startling...

    You’ve probably seen the famous footage of Bigfoot — that grainy film from 1967 showing an apelike creature ambling through the California woods, casting a brief, leisurely glance at the camera before disappearing off screen. What an Illinois man saw last month was rather different. The creature he says he spotted outside the small town of Chandlerville, northwest of Springfield, was fast, athletic and massive, covering a two-lane road in two quick strides. It had incredibly long limbs and was covered in shiny black hair, the man said, and was gone almost before he could register what was happening. “It...

    A new photograph showing a moving object in the middle of the Solent has caused eyewitnesses to question if it was the Loch Ness Monster enjoying a holiday. The extraordinary sighting of three humps bobbing up and down in the water comes just days after a similar shape was spotted in The Thames by the O2 Arena in London. The picture - taken 630 miles away from Loch Ness - has resulted in Trevor and Jo Wilde questioning if it was Nessie swimming past. Three humps emerged from the water as the Nessie-shaped creature - first brought to the world's...

    A man has bizarrely claimed he was stalked by a terrifying “dog man” monster in the Australian outback – and even says he has picture “proof”. The fisherman, called John, wildly claims he was left “petrified for a month” after encountering the supposed “half-dog, half-human creature” on two separate occasions. Speaking on the Believe: Paranormal & UFO Podcast, the Aussie insisted he was “followed” by what he has branded a “dog man” – and claims he “thought he was going to be killed”.

    Sea monsters in Casco Bay? As with many bodies of water, there are legends about strange creatures lurking beneath Casco Bay as well. Our local monster is known as Cassie and is apparently serpent-like in her form. Cassie was first sighted back in 1779 by a young sailor named Edward Preble. Fast forward nearly 200 years to 1958 when a fisherman described a similar serpent-like creature he saw that turned its head in response to the repeated blow of the foghorn. Apparently, Cassie is a long-lived serpent! The depths of this story can be plumbed at Portland’s International Cryptozoology Museum...

    Okay, we get it. Not everyone believes in Bigfoot or Sasquatch. But a lot of people do. And a lot of people have claimed to actually see the hairy ape in person. Bigfoot hunters claim that Montana is the perfect habitat for Sasquatch. With wide-open spaces and a small human population density, Bigfoot can thrive in Montana. The Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization recently compiled data of all the reported sightings of Bigfoot in the United States. Their data shows which states have the most sightings, and which states you are more likely to have a Bigfoot sighting, compared to the...

    The Fresno Nightcrawler — often described as walking, ghostly pants — is known far beyond California's central San Joaquin Valley. It's become a darling of the cryptids — creatures typically described as mythological in nature, whose existence are widely considered unproven. "It's up there with Chupacabra, the Mothman and Bigfoot," said Michael Banti, founder of Weird Fresno, about the Fresno Nightcrawler's popularity. "It's very niche. It seems to be bigger outside of Fresno than inside."

    A British outdoorsman paddling through Scotland’s Loch Ness for a long-distance charity canoe trip may have inadvertently captured drone footage of the fabled Loch Ness Monster. “The last thing I want to do is make a Nessie claim,” Richard Mavor told The Post. “I’m the most skeptical of people. But watching this I think yeah, there’s something a bit strange here.” The video image taken last month of a long, thin form just beneath the water’s surface was so fleeting that Mavor, 54, didn’t notice it when he posted it Sept. 1.

Some on social media have suggested that this animal may be a coyote with mange, while others say that it may be another breed of animal that is sick. Now, because this is on the internet, like you, we too will approach this photo with...
