If you’ve been following us for a while, you may remember the following story we posted from August 15th of last year:

… Loren Coleman, world-renowned cryptozoologist and resident blogger at cryptomundo.com, reported on this incredible breaking news: supposedly up to 15 of the mysterious sea serpent-like cryptids known as  Cadborosaurus have been filmed, and the footage will be broadcast on the Discovery Channel… (you can read his post here and the link to the original story here).

Loren was understandably wary in his blog, raising the possibility that it may in fact be otters.

But today, fellow cryptozoologist John Kirk has posted there that he himself was able to view the footage and makes the following claim:

“…I must say I was stunned because it looked like a living breathing version of the famed Naden Harbour carcass obtained in 1937… I can fairly confidently say that readers will find this footage fascinating…”

I’m excited but cautious regarding this news from our friends at cryptomundo.com. I guess just like everyone else we’ll just have to wait with baited breath!


Well that long-awaited show, officially titled “Alaskan Monster Hunt: Hillstranded” finally airs tonight on Discovery Channel (10pm EST/9pm CST). I’m surprised there hasn’t been more fanfare prior to the airing of the show, considering how important this footage is actually supposed to be. In any case, I’ve set my DVR and am anxiously awaiting seeing the footage.

    Ugh what a letdown. Watching those two cock holsters go on about ”hunting” the monster the show was a joke. Too bad they couldn’t have had some real analysis, MonsterQuest was a pain in the ass with their hyped up sham episodes at times but at least they got professionals to review footage. Shame on you Discovery Channel.
