Last week, we were treated to the clearest video of what was claimed to be a giant squid near the surface from central Japan’s Toyama Bay.

bigfoot captured main

WOW! History Channel pulled a “Mermaids” gimmick. Why would they sabotage their credibility? Oh wait, ever since it became the “Hitler” Channel a while ago, it’s been heading downhill. According to this review of their latest special program, Bigfoot Captured, a “shameful fake documentary” about Bigfoot, it’s hit rock bottom. Reviewer Jim Vorel of Paste Magazine takes the…

Image by John Conway, from the forthcoming Cryptozoologicon

BBC magazine has a story out today that Bigfoot researchers are using to explain why we don’t have reports of the yeti in Bhutan (and, subsequently, Bigfoot in the US Northwest). Is it a GOOD reason or just a convenient excuse for the lack of evidence? Why don’t people see the yeti any more? –…

nature of the beast_sykes

As we updated yesterday, Bryan Sykes’ claim of mystery DNA is being hyped by the media apparently ahead of his new book about his Yeti/Bigfoot project (the results of the Oxford-Lausanne Collateral Hominid Project which had a goal of collecting organic material for so called “cryptids”, including that which people believe may be from Bigfoot, and…

Meldrum’s course on relict hominoids is a bit of a stretch

Frame capture from the Patterson Gimlin film, to date, the most discussed piece of Bigfoot evidence.

New York Bigfoot advocate wants the critter on the endangered species list

Who's messin' with who?

It’s been a while since we had a nonsensical Bigfoot story. I know, I know. “Aren’t they all?” Endangered – seriously at risk of extinction.

Students asked exam question about Bigfoot
