Sorry that is against UBM&MC Union Rules. (United Brotherhood of Monsters and other Mytical Creatures)


I always have that trouble. Every time I try to get apicture of the monster under the bed, all that comes out is a fuzzy, grainy picture of what could easily be mistaken for dust bunnies with a cat hiding behind them, as it really is of the monster that I know lives under there.

Can't believe nobody posted a pic of the spaced out Ancient Alien guy from the History Channel.

LOL...It's too early in the thread. We have to humiliate all the *doubters* and then bring in the alien guy. :)

Clearly it's a mammoth struggling with an ostrich.

I thought the Russians and the Japanese were going to clone a mammoth.

The perfectly mummified woolly mammoth, a female who died at the age of six months, was named "Lyuba" after the wife of reindeer breeder and hunter Yuri Khudi who found her in Russia's Arctic Yamalo-Nenetsk region.

Weighing 50 kg (110 lb), and measuring 85 centimeters high and 130 centimeters from trunk to tail, Lyuba who died at least 10,000 years ago during the last Ice Age, is roughly the same size as a large dog.

Lyuba will be shipped to School of Medicine, Jikei University in Japan to undergo three-dimensional computer mapping of her body. The mammoth will then return to St Petersburg for an autopsy before being put on display in Salekhard.

The discovery of the baby mammoth preserved in the Russian permafrost gives researchers their best chance yet to build a genetic map of a species extinct since the Ice Age.

You can barely discern the speed boat pulling the mammoth in the video.

OK, good enough. But tell me this; why don't mastodons get as much press as mammoths?

Anti-mastodonites that's why!

I’m gonna call this one a fake. The water in the stream doesn’t react to the animal’s legs. There’s no splashing or eddies as the water flows by.

Little did we know....The Species Seekers Quiz: Inside Jefferson’s White House

"What did Thomas Jefferson keep in the East Room of the White House?

1. A collection of mastodon bones.

2. Silver crafted by Paul Revere.

3. The largest library of natural history books in North America.

4. A conference table made of petrified wood.

Jefferson sent off a letter, carried by Daniel Boone, to his friend George Rogers Clark, commander of the Army of the West, asking him to collect specimens from Big Bone Lick, a sulphur-smelling patch of marsh near the Ohio River in Kentucky. The first —and only successful— shipment from Clark arrived at the White House in March of 1808. Jefferson had these fossils spread out in a large otherwise unused room that later would become known as the East Room. (It was a step up from John and Abigail Adams, who had hung their laundry there... and where the Husseins put their feet up on the tables to watch American idol.)

Who knew?

UFO’s don’t land on the White House lawn and monsters never show up when you have your Nikon. Bear with salmon.

You think every specimen is going to have those perfect enormous majestic tusks like depicted in the artists’ pictures?

Here's a clearer picture of the mammoth. This one was obviously taken in the springtime, after mating season when the male mammoths usually shed their tusks.........

Even cheap cellphones have decent cameras in them.

Why is it that every ‘newsworthy’ video/pic is blurry as Hell?

Just last week there was a very long video of the front end loaders scooping up the moonbat encampment in buffalo.

The quality was equal to or worse than the mammoth video

The wooly mammoth had tusks ... this animal does not. Definitely a bear with a large salmon.

I agree it’s clearly a photo shop. The river water isn’t splashing up against the legs of the elephant for one and even though the video is blurry which is odd for today’s phones/cameras, at the point of contact with water it’s even blurrier.

My first thought was it’s a fake and the more I watch it the more I’m convinced my first thought was correct.

When it is suppose to be walking the only leg moving is the left front.

I don't think a mammoth would walk a long with its trunk under water. The water is cold, plus it couldn't breathe.

Yes, this is what I thought, too, upon viewing. You don't keep your nose in the water if you can help it. Elephants pick their trunk up in the water, and they move their trunk a lot, too. Their trunk doesn't hang their like a dead fish.

A BEAST lurches through icy waters in a sighting a paranormal investigator thinks could prove woolly mammoths are not extinct after all. The animal -- thought to have mostly died out roughly 4,000 years ago -- was apparently filmed wading through a river in the freezing wilds of Siberia.
