Tonight’s Nightmare Sponsored by… The Frilled Shark

Frilled Shark

I dig Cryptozoology like Mario digs plumbing.  I’m obsessed with the oddities of the natural world, especially the aliens that try to pass themselves off as sea creatures.  There are beasts down there that turn the ocean into an underwater Thunder Dome that I fear out of divine respect.

The Frilled Shark is just one of those species.  And thanks to the Internet, you can witness its full range of motion as it plants its prehistoric seed into your memory.  As far as I’m concerned, this footage completely validates the possibility that Nessie is real.  That thing – that spawn of an angry Poseidon is, literally, a dinosaur.

I fear it.  And I worship it.

    Spiritualism takes on a new meaning if there’s a possibility of reincarnation. Transformation into that beast of the sea would be extremely satisfying.

    Hell yeah. I watched this video like 12 times in a row at work today.
    I am, however, very sad that the Majestic Beast died shortly after capture. and without eating any of the divers to boot.

    Damn shame.

    Cryptozoology is soooo awesome.

    I assume you’ve been to http://www.bfro.net?

    Nope, haven’t checked out bfro.net before, but it looks solid. The most regular crypto site I check out is Cryptomundo.

    Good heads up though, I can’t get enough of that stuff.

    Leave it to the Japanese to find the Loch Ness Monster. I just want to know how they got it from Scotland to Japan w/o anyone knowing.

    If you watched heroes you’d know they can bend space in time. It’s been common knowledge for years.

    What gets my interest is the continent of Australia and the lost worldesque ecosystem of New Zealand.

    They were talking about 12 foot long monitor lizards, 9 foot tall killer kangaroos, and wombats as large as rhinos, marsupial lions. These were animals that roamed Oz until the aboriginees showed up… only to go extinct shortly afterwards (the theory is that the brush fires used for agriculture was what caused them to die out).

    How about the largest eagle that ever lived, the 9 foot tall Moa, and giant parrots in old New Zealand…

    Imagine the awe and inspiration that these creatures gave those paleolithic humans.

    Good call, Peter. Absolutely amazing. I feel so privileged, but then kinda selfish seeing as it sadly died.
