cryptid-wendigo:

These images were taken by police chief Jeff Greenhaw. The entity has been called the Falkville Metal Man and was encountered in Falkville, Alabama on

October 17th, 1973. Greenhaw received a call from an anonymous woman around 10pm; she reported seeing a UFO fall and crash on the property of a man named Bobby Summerford. Upon leaving to investigate, Greenhaw remembered to grab his Polaroid camera, which is how we have these images. Once he got to the location, everything seemed to be normal. But after a few hundred yards of walking along a trail, he saw this humanoid figure that appeared to be made of metal. Startled by the camera’s flash, the Metal Man charged Greenhaw. He later noted that the entity moved as though it had springs on its feet, unlike anything human. Greenhaw got into his truck and managed to speed away and lose the creature. In the months following the sighting, bad luck befell the police chief: he lost his job, his marriage crumbled, and his house was burned down.

Greenhaw was adamant that the entity he witnessed and took photographs of was an organic being that was not of this world.

I felt the need to make a post for these beautiful animals because every time I see a picture of them, it’s absolutely haunting and heart breaking.

The last living thylacine in captivity yawns at the Hobart Zoo. Thylacines were capable of opening their jaws as wide as 80 degrees. 

The thylacine, more popularly known as the Tasmanian tiger, was an apex predator in Australia and Tasmania before its extinction in the early 20th century.

Despite its superficial resemblance to a large dog, the thylacine was actually a marsupial, with no relation to canines — its doglike features emerged as it evolved to fill an ecological niche similar to wolves.

Instantly recognizable by its distinctive striped back, the thylacine also featured an abdominal pouch similar to a kangaroo’s.

Though the thylacine had vanished from the Australian mainland by the time of British colonization, small populations of the animal survived on the island of Tasmania.

Thylacines were rarely seen by Tasmanian settlers, but were increasingly blamed for the deaths of livestock, leading the government to establish bounties for their killing.

Their already meager numbers dwindled, and efforts to conserve the species were too little, too late. The last thylacine to be killed in the wild was shot by a hunter in 1930, and the last captive thylacine died at the Hobart Zoo in 1936.

After 50 years without a confirmed sighting, the thylacine was declared extinct in 1986 — but unconfirmed sightings of the mysterious Tasmanian tiger are still reported occasionally to this day, and efforts are even under way to clone one from preserved DNA. ( X )

Black Bird of Chernobyl

Speaking of winged creatures, sightings of the Black Bird of Chernobyl began just months before the Chernobyl disaster took place in 1986. The creature shares many of the same characteristics as Mothman: humanoid, winged, covered in dark hair, and glowing red eyes. Sightings of the Black Bird began in the days leading to the incident. Those who came across it often received mysterious phone calls and suffered terrible nightmares. Sightings continued until the early morning of April 26th when the nuclear reactor blew. Rescue workers and pilots who battled the flames and bravely helped with the evacuation told terrifying stories about a huge black figure flying from the destroyed reactor, circling the black smoke rising from it. This was the last time the Black Bird was sighted, leading some to speculate that its dark deeds were finally fulfilled.
