Colonel Remy Van Lierde was a Belgian fighter pilot and served during WWII. He serving for the Belgian air force in 1959 in the Congo area. While flying back to base he encountered something extraordinary. Lierde spotted on the forest floor below him a giant snake, emerging from a hole in the ground. After several passes the co-piolt took this picture. Lierde estimated the length of the snake to be around 50 feet, judging by the foliage around it. While the photo has not been verified untampered, Lierde insisted the photo was genuine until his death in 1990.
Between 1953 and 1954, the town of Bladenboro, North Carolina was terrorized by some unknow creature that killed nine dog and several other household pets. It became known as the Beast Of Bladenboro. Some of the animals were found torn apart while others discovered to had their blood sucked out. The beast was believed to also killed hogs, chickens and cows. Witnesses described the cryptid as a large, catlike creature whose howl sounded like a ghostly baby cry. A hunt was organized to capture the Beast Of Bladenboro, however the event only ended with several bobcats killed. In 2008, similar attacks occurred, yet the identity of this cryptid remains unknown.
Cryptids are creatures not recognized by the scientific community or thought extincted, but believed to still exist today. Loch Ness, the ahool, the altamaha-ha and the grootslang are some examples of such beast. Among other reported cryptids are humanoids that resemble humans in anatomy. These creatures have two eyes, opposable thumbs, able to walk upright, and in some cases possessed a human like intelligence. Bigfoot, Mothman, Skunk Ape and the GoatMan are well-known cryptids within this category along with an infamous one called the Lizard Man of Scape Ore Swamp.
In 1764, a monstrous, wolf-like beast terrorized the people of Gévaudan, slaying dozen of the local inhabitants. Over the years, the creature’s identity remains uncertain with researchers proposing theories ranging from a pack to wolves to a hyena and even a few daring to suggest a werewolf. The following YouTube video, produced by Crypticc, goes into more detail about the Beast of Gevaudan.
