Ancient Chinese Mongolians tell of monsters in Lake Kanasi. Twenty years ago, the first modern wave of sightings of the Lake Kanasi Monster occurred. Today, this Chinese cryptid is well known throughout Asia, and rapidly gaining recognition in the West. Reporter Audra Ang, writing in a breaking Associated Press dispatch, notes: "They have come by the tens of thousands over the years — skeptical scientists, curious tourists — answering the lure of the mysterious Kanasi Huguai, China’s very own version of the Loch Ness Monster….In today’s society, myth-making and chasing are a big business."

They did tell me that they had just taped footage of the Vermont Expos mascot, [...]
The media interest in the “Hobbits,” which I still enjoy calling by their more formal name, the Flores people or Homo floresiensis, is finally touching more seriously on their possible affinity to Australopithecus afarensis (“Lucy’). What’s interesting about this to cryptozoologists, of course, is the link to a continuous range of reports of little, upright hairy people from Indonesia, through India and the ancient Ceylon (Nittaewo), over to the homeland of “Lucy.” The reports of Sehite (West Africa) and Agogwe (East Africa) are especially intriguing for matching those of the Ebu Gogo of Flores Island. In the 1940s, there were [...]
