Top 10 Mysterious Monsters of Today
Top Ten Lists
Given the rich
folklore and ancient mythology, I believe it is safe to assume that
mankind has always been fascinated with monsters. Interestingly
enough, even though most people nowadays perceive those creatures
as pure fiction, it is necessary to mention that their existence
was undisputed until two centuries ago.
everyone accepts the unrealism of frightful and mysterious creatures.
While the modern creatures are not as fascinating as those of the
past, some people strongly believe in their existence, particularly
after being witnesses to various inexplicable circumstances. Whether
they are real or not one thing is for sure: their anonymity will
always hunt us. Lets meet nowadays puzzling creatures
in our top 10 list.
Nessie is perhaps
one of the most renowned lake monsters to elude scientists. Despite
the advanced scanning technology, numerous eyewitnesses and even
some pictures, the Loch Ness Monster is pretty hard to find. While
the place is literarily crawling with tourists who are trying to
catch a glimpse of Nessie, very few of them were lucky enough to
see the monster stretch its neck high above the water and look around.
On a side note, there have been numerous reports of similar aquatic
creatures around the globe and Nessie is just the most famous one.
nobody knows for certain what they really are or even if they exist,
one thing is for sure: they supposedly leave large footprints behind.
Unlike Nessie, Bigfoot was filmed while it was casually taking a
walk in the forest in 1967. However, the authenticity of the film
is still contested and rumors have it that the filmmakers have even
admitted that their short film of Bigfoot is a hoax. Whether the
1967 footage was genuine or not, it is necessary to mention that
Bigfoot sighting have been reported in isolated highlands and mountains
across the globe.
or the goat sucker is a monster that enjoys ravaging
the livestock of farmers from Central and South America. Unlike
Nessie and Bigfoot, there is practically no footage with it and
the eyewitnesses descriptions vary a lot. The only thing you can
say for certain about the Chupacabra is that it has scary red eyes
and it leaves a trail of dead animals behind. As a side note, the
hype around this creature has drawn the attention of various conspiracy
theorists who claim Chupacabra is a terrible result of secret experiments.
What is fascinating
about the Mothman is that his numerous appearances coincide with
an unusual number of UFO reports in 1966 in West Virginia. While
no more sightings have been reported nowadays, back then there were
hundred of people claiming they saw a winged humanoid creature that
had a peculiar ability of channeling information from the individuals
it got into contact with.
the Algonquians people legends, the Wendigo represents one
of the most fearful creatures believed to exist even today. If you
were to check out the mythology of various tribes from the Northern
part of the US and Canada, you will notice the physical descriptions
of the creature are very distinct. Moreover, there are no eyewitnesses
or footage proving its existence. However, that is the last thing
you want to do, considering the Wendigo is a cannibalistic, malevolent,
supernatural creature that can control a humans mind as well
as eat it.
