10 Real Mythical Creatures That Were Found in Real Life

Weird creatures tend to show their faces on the planet Earth.

Thanks to the Internet we are able to see a lot of freaky unexplainable photos of creatures we are tempted to call monsters.

1. The Jersey Devil

Perhaps New Jersey’s most famous celebrity, even more famous than Tony Soprano himself, The Jersey Devil has been haunting the state for over a century now.

Believed to live deep within the Pine Barrens, The Jersey Devil is rarely reported to be seen these days, but for an entire week in 1909, throughout the state and Delaware Valley.

Sightings were reported by large groups of people in places spanning across Camden, Haddon Heights and even Philadelphia.

Schools throughout the area closed as residents hid in their homes in panic.

Police and firemen are said to have even turned their guns and fire hoses on the flying kangaroo-like demon monster that they claimed to have seen with their own eyes.

2. Alien Corpse in Thai Ceremony

A series of images depicting a ceremony for an alien-looking creature held by Thai villagers in 2007, complete with incense and baby powder, resurfaced in 2010 through social networks. Speculators suggested it was anything from an alien with its large, globe-like head and gray skin to a satyr with its tiny hooves and tail.

3. Pope Lick Monster

The Pope Lick Monster is infamously claimed to be a mix of a human and a goat. Sounds sketchy, doesn’t it? But there have been too many sightings of this half human, half goat creature to dismiss it entirely.

It’s also been claimed that the Pope Lick Monster has killed many people, and indeed, numerous people have gone missing that have also been attributed to the Pope Lick Monster. For now, it remains classified as an unidentified creature.

4. Cohomo Monster

The Cohomo Monster has been described as eight feet tall with white fur and three toes.

There have been so many sightings of the Cohomo Monster in the Midwest throughout the 1970s to the 2000s, that a police investigation was launched to find the creature, but it was never actually found by the police. Nonetheless, more sightings by people continued.

5. Lake Michigan Monster

If you’re sketchy of the Lochness Monster, then you may be sketchy of the Lake Michigan Monster, too. The Lake Michigan Monster was reported as being over fifty feet in overall length, with a long neck, gray scales and a small head.

There have also been numerous reports of the loud, roaring sounds it makes. What puts this creature so high on the list is the story of a fisherman who claimed that the creature came within twenty feet of his boat. He was able to give an extremely detailed description and drawing of the creature, that matched many other sightings as well.

6. Montauk Monster

The carcass of the Montauk Monster famously rolled up on the shores of New York, in July of 2008, and has generated perhaps the highest level of controversy (at least in recent times) of any identified creature.

The dead creature was discovered by four surfers on the beach, who took a picture and instantly made headlines.

Many scientists initially believed it to be the carcass of a decomposed raccoon, but the back legs have been found to be too disproportionate to the body. Other theories about it included being a mutated specimen from the nearby Plum Island Animal Disease Center.

7. Piglet With Monkey’s Face

The animal has a simian jaw, bulging forehead, small snout and eyes that are so close together that they appear almost attached. Its front legs are much shorter than its back legs, causing it top hop rather than walk on all fours like a normal piglet.

The animal was one of five piglets recently born to a sow owned by a family in Fengzhang village, Xiping township.

8. Weird unknown creature found in a trench in Russia

This weird creature was found in an abandoned foundation pit in the Russian city of Chelyabinsk. Looks like a stingray but not. What is that creature actually?

9. Oriental Yeti Trapped By Hunters in China

In April 2010, a group of hunters trapped a hairless possum-like mammal that was described as looking like a bear with a kangaroo-like tail and making distressed cat noises. The creature became a media sensation, being dubbed the “Oriental Yeti.” According to legend, the Yeti was a bear-like figure that towered well over the height of men. This creature was only two feet long…

10. Seven legged baby goat in China

A goat with seven legs has been born recently in Jiaoliuhe township, Taonan, Jilin Province in China.

The owner of the goat, a woman surnamed Song, explained that it was a difficult birth but the goat is standing on four of it’s legs and is feeding.
