Creature Spotted In The Forest

Bigfoot is the big guy of cryptozoology, the "study" of mythological beasts. This hairy humanoid seems to pop up everywhere there are forests, from Pennsylvania to the Pacific Northwest. Alas, there is no firm proof that towering ape-men roam in remote areas. In 2008, a pair from Georgia claimed to have the body of a Bigfoot in a chest freezer, along with DNA evidence of the species. But the DNA turned out to belong to an opossum, and the "body" was a crumpled gorilla suit.

Another mythical monster that has provided ample opportunities for commercialization, Nessie is a lake creature said to live in the depths of Loch Ness in the Scottish Highlands. The murky, frigid lake is prime monster territory: It is up to 755 feet (230 meters) deep, providing plenty of space to hide.

Sometimes known as the "Asian unicorn," the saola is a creature related to wild cattle that lives in remote areas of Vietnam and Laos. It is seldom seen and was only discovered in 1992. The evidence then? A single skull with a pair of long, straight horns, according to the World Wildlife Fund. In 1999, a couple of saolas were seen on camera traps, proving that they still survived in the wild.

It's hard not to love a mythological monster with a name like the "goat sucker." The chupacabra is a legend of Central and South America, with sightings reported in the Caribbean and Texas. The creature gets its name from its alleged attack strategy of exsanguinating livestock.

The dense mountain forests of southeast Asia aren't the only place where eerie unknown species lurk. For shear biological mystery, there's no place like the oceans. There are, believe it or not, goblins down there.

Blue is not a popular color in the animal kingdom. When asked to think of animals that are blue, a few birds might quickly come to mind, like blue jays and great blue herons. The blue-spotted salamander probably wouldn't make many people's list, because most people have probably never seen one.

Salamanders look like lizards, but they aren't related. Salamanders are amphibians, while lizards are reptiles. Salamanders, including blue-spotted salamanders, produce toxins as a defense mechanism. They have glands near their tails that can secrete a toxin when they are threatened, reports NatureWorks.

Blue-spotted salamanders are mostly black or blackish-blue in color, with bluish-white spots on their sides, tails and legs and sometimes their backs and bellies, according to Animal Diversity Web. They typically grow to be between 3 inches and 5 inches long, and their tails account for about 40 percent of their body length.

Blue-spotted salamanders are found in only a small part of the United States, mainly in and around the Great Lakes, according to Animal Diversity Web. In Illinois, they live in only the northeastern portion of the state, which includes Will County, IDNR reports.

These salamanders typically live in wooded areas, usually near small ponds or water sources or in areas with moist soil, Animal Diversity Web reports. Many salamanders spend much of their time underground, but blue-spotted salamanders are often above ground, but out of sight under fallen logs, leaves or other plant debris.

Some salamanders give birth to live babies, but blue-spotted salamanders lay eggs in water, which is why they live near a water source. They mainly breed in April, and the eggs take about a month to hatch. The larvae live in the water for a few months, transitioning to their adult form. Once they reach their adult form, they move onto land, usually by late summer.

Blue-spotted salamanders do one thing most all humans can appreciate: they eat mosquitoes and mosquito larvae, according to Animal Diversity Web. And as amphibians, their mere presence in an area is an indicator the habitat is clean. That's because amphibians breathe through their skin and are very sensitive to toxins and other contaminants. If you see salamanders, frogs and other amphibians in an area, that's a good sign. It means the water is clean, providing a healthy habitat.

The first report hit the newspapers on April 21, 1897. A fisherman up in Nelson Run, in the present-day Dark Skies Landscape, reported seeing this creature. Walking upright, the hairy creature screamed and beat its chest. The fisherman jumped onto his horse, which was already frightened, and fled the scene. The creature chased the fisherman and the horse, but abandoned the chase quickly.

After the first sighting, the newspaper speculated that this could have been some sort of gorilla, perhaps escaped from a traveling circus. The next report of the creature, however, hit the papers a week later, and deepened the mystery.

Rare sightings of the creatures of the forest are as precious as gems. These animals may be elusive, mostly moving at night to hide their presence. Or they may actually be scarce, their numbers few and their habitat remote. In either event, just seeing one of these wild gems is a memory you can cherish, bring back in your thoughts at any time, and savor like fine jewelry.

Later this month, the monkey's discovery will be published in the journal Oryx. The most noticeable distinction the Vanzolini has from other saki species, says Marsh, is its unique appearance, but more work still needs to be done to understand the creature's genetic differences.

Forests are magnificent places teeming with a huge diversity of life. They are essential for life on Earth. They impact our lives in so many ways, from the air we breathe to the wood we use. Eight of 10 species found on land live in forests, and almost 300 million people, particularly in developing countries, live in forests, too.

1. Tree KangarooTree kangaroos live in lowland and mountainous rainforests in Papua New Guinea, Indonesia, and the far north of Queensland, Australia. They have adapted to life in the trees, with shorter legs and stronger forelimbs for climbing. They are the largest tree-dwelling mammals in Australia. Like all macropods, instead of sweating, tree kangaroos lick their forearms and allow the evaporation to help cool their bodies when hot. Many tree kangaroo species are incredibly rare and most are decreasing in number. They face habitat loss through deforestation.

3. SaolaSaolas are one of the rarest and most threatened mammals on the planet. They are a cousin of cattle but resemble antelope. They are critically endangered and are found only in the Annamite Mountains of Vietnam and Laos. As forests disappear under the chainsaw to make way for agriculture, plantations and infrastructure, saola are being squeezed into smaller spaces. Rapid and large-scale infrastructure in the region is also fragmenting saola habitat. WWF has been involved with the protection of the saola since its discovery, strengthening and establishing protected areas as well as working on research, community based forest management, capacity building, and strengthening law enforcement.

Recently, a video of a huge muscular mountain goat seen in a forest was posted on the social media platform Twitter by the user OddIy Terrifying. The video has amassed over 15 million views and 450k likes since it was posted, and viewers have been astonished by the strangeness of this creature.

The footage of the mountain goat shows a massive creature with a muscular body. The goat was seen walking around in the forest and seemed quite comfortable in its environment. The animal was observed to be very agile and quick on its feet.

This latest sighting of what looks like the ape-like creature was laid bare for all to see on Google Earth, and since being shared on Reddit, people have been posting information and theories on 'Bigfoot'.

The exact coordinates of where the bear-like animal is are 3816'24" N. 10808'32 in western Colorado - where the supposed creature is seen strolling through a clearing near some vegetation.

There are two types of chanterelles on the coast. Cantharellus roseocanus and Cantharellus formosus. Cantharellus roseocanus, aka rainbow chantrelle, has a more robust stem and is found summer through fall. Cantharellus formosus or golden chantrelle, is found summer through winter on the coast. Both are yellow-orange gold in color. Inland, there is another chanterelle, Cantharellus subalbidus, the white chanterelle, which grows in old growth forests with madrone, Douglas fir, hemlock and pine. The golden chanterelle can be found inland as well. There is a purple or blue chanterelle that is rarely found inland in the winter, usually growing near black trumpets, another prized mushroom for table fare.

This creature has long been known among the Algonquian Ojibwe, Eastern Cree, Saulteaux, Westmain Swampy Cree, Naskapi, and Innu peoples. They have described them as giants, many times larger than human beings. Although descriptions can vary somewhat, common to all these cultures is the view that the wendigo is a malevolent, cannibalistic, supernatural being strongly associated with winter, the north, coldness, famine, and starvation.

Native American versions of the creature spoke of a gigantic spirit over fifteen feet tall that had once been human but had been transformed into a creature by magic. Though the descriptions of the creature vary slightly, the Wendigo is generally said to have glowing eyes, long yellowed fangs, terrible claws, and overly long tongues. Sometimes they are described as having sallow, yellowish skin, and other times, they are covered with matted hair. The creature is said to have several skills and powers, including stealth, is a near-perfect hunter, knows and uses every inch of its territory, and can control the weather through dark magic. They are also portrayed as simultaneously gluttonous and emaciated from starvation.

However, Wendigo creature sightings are still reported, especially in northern Ontario, near the Cave of the Wendigo, and around Kenora, where traders have allegedly spotted it, trackers and trappers for decades. Many still believe that the Wendigo roams the woods and the prairies of northern Minnesota and Canada. Many have given Kenora, Ontario, Canada, the title of Wendigo Capital of the World. Sightings of the creature in this area have continued well into the new millennium. 041b061a72
