Thomas Finley's sketch depicting kayakers' run-in with two long-necked mystery animals at Lake Champlain. Could a similar scenario have occured in Somes Sound on August 22, 2013?

Crocodile-like unknown aquatic animals have been reported in the past; while the 'Bristol crocodile' reports are unlikely to reflect
observations of genuinely unknown animals, could they indicate crocodilians in areas where they are unverified to inhabit? The
illustration depicts a form of 'marine saurian' reported in the Indo-Pacific and is by Tim Morris.

Following a year’s worth of undergraduate education in Animal Behavior, Ecology, and Conservation, I have embarked on yet another intellectual journey, resulting in my third and hopefully final blog relocation. Please head to “Animal in the Mirror" to read my new writing on humankind's relationship with nonhuman animals, and our denial of our animal nature.
Although it is common knowledge among serious cryptozoological researchers that such images are mere hoaxes, photographs alleging to portray the bodies of relict pterosaurs surrounded by soldiers or hunters have been circulating on the Internet once again. These images often come in compilations such as the one which was featured on the They Live Among Us Facebook page. As it appears that my leaving of comments has still not helped to hinder such innocent misinformation, I thought that it would be best to formally address these photographs here.

Alleged 'sea serpent' evidence rarely makes it into the attention of the general public, but when it does, I scrutinize it in light of my extensive research. (Artwork by Thomas Finley which, interestingly, bears some resemblance to a series of particular reports described in this article)

Mysterious shark deaths do not necessarily indicate the presence of a massive, unknown marine predator. There are other, more mundane explanations. (Artwork by Thomas Finley)
As was expected, it seems that the shark's predator has been identified as a larger shark. So much for all of the premature and wild speculation. Thanks to cryptozoological researcher Dale Drinnon, who has refrained from any sort of irregular speculation towards this case as a proper investigator of unverified animals should, for bringing this to my attention.
