Ghost in the Water?

Photo was taken by Rhiannon Elaina Fugate and is used by permission.

It's a awesome Photo .. Rhiannon said she did not even see the image, another person on facebook pointed it out. It's cool no matter what it is ..be it a ghost,stain or trick of light.
Thanks to Rhiannon for letting us use it.

Birth of a Legend



It's official, Finding Bigfoot's "Birth of a Legend," a two-hour special, premieres Sunday, October 30 at 9:00/8:00c. Just in time for Halloween.

Matt Moneymaker and his crew takes us deep into California's Redwood forest to investigate one of the most infamous and disputed pieces of Bigfoot evidence ever - the Patterson-Gimlin footage.

Marble mountain video

The Original Marble mountain video. The Filmer Jim Mills passed away in 2010. As for the footage the "thing" in the video seems to have very long arms. I hear the BFRO messures the tree branch at over 8 foot tall. meaning the creature was over 8 ft tall. Pretty interesting video and notice how the "nest" looks like the one from the Utah video.

What was zipping across the sky?



Whatever it was that streaked from west to east through the sky Wednesday night over several southwest states still has people wondering if it was a meteor, fireball, space debris or, you guessed it, a UFO.

Keep in mind that UFO means Unidentified Flying Object, so by definition, it is, for now at least, a UFO. From Southern California to Arizona and Nevada, eyewitnesses reported a series of green-blue and yellowish lights.

TCH - was it just a meteor or something else?

Rare Cat images ?

The Crypto Hunters was sent the following 2 pictures, we have zoomed in and highlighted some of the more interesting parts.
Theses pictures were sent to us by Waylen Frederick, These pictures were captured on his farm land in Parish,La.
Here is what he had to say about the photos:
"..this pic is in heavy fog taken with 6 mp infrared trail cam, i adjusted brightness low and contrast high to try and get a look at this deer, but after enhancements the eyeshine seems to have pupils. i have hundreds of deer eyeshines with ir cameras and cannot duplicate these pupils." He also said he thinks "..it could be a Mountain Lion" and wanted us to take a look.
Please do not use these pictures without The Crypto Hunters permissions.

 
(You can see 3 deer in this photo and a very big set of eyes watching them)

(Close up of the eyes)


(This is kind of far away and behind some brush,but it is there.)

(Zoomed in and highlighted)

*Please do not use these photos without our permission.


TCH- After reviewing and using various software on the above pictures, it could very well be a mountain lion ,but we are thinking it is a Rare Black Bobcat...either way it is a nice set of photos.
Thanks to Waylen Frederick for sharing his photos and story with us,we look forward to an update and more photos soon.

New bigfoot video?



TCH - we have not done a breakdown of this video,but it appears to be a fake. The head seems to big and look like a costume to us. What do you think?

86 Percent of Earth's Species Still Unknown?

Traci Watson
for National Geographic News.

Even after centuries of effort, some 86 percent of Earth's species have yet to be fully described, according to new study that predicts our planet is home to 8.7 million species.
That means scientists have cataloged less than 15 percent of species now alive—and current extinction rates mean many unknown organisms will wink out of existence before they can be recorded.
The study was driven by a simple question: "Are we within reach of finding all species, or are we way off?" said study co-author Boris Worm of Canada's Dalhousie University.
"The answer is, we are way off."
Two hundred and fifty years after Swedish botanist Carl Linnaeus devised a formal system for classifying the diversity of nature, the catalog for some classes of living things—such as mammals and birds—is nearly complete, the study says. But the inventories for other classes are woefully sparse.
For instance, only 7 percent of the predicted number of fungi—which includes mushrooms and yeasts—has been described, and less than 10 percent of the life-forms in the world's oceans has been identified.
What's been discovered so far are "those things that are easy to find, that are conspicuous, that are relatively large," Worm said.
"There is an age of discovery ahead of us when we could find out so much more of what lives with us on this planet."
Counting Earth's Millions
So far, some 1.2 million species are known to science. To calculate the percentage of unknown species, Worm and colleagues first had to answer one of the great questions of ecology: How many species live on the Earth?
Previous guesses ranged from three million all the way to a hundred million. (See "'Encyclopedia of Life' to Catalog All Species on Earth.")
To gain a more precise answer, the authors examined the categories into which all species are grouped.
Scientists lump similar species together into a broader grouping called a genus, similar genera into a still broader category called a family, and so on, all the way up to a supercategory called a kingdom. (See photos of species classification in National Geographic magazine.)
There are five kingdoms: animals, plants, fungi, chromists—including one-celled plants such as diatoms—and protozoa, or one-celled organisms.
Worm's team estimated the total number of genera, families, orders, classes, and phyla—a designation above class—in each kingdom. That's a relatively easy task, since the number of new examples in these categories has leveled off in recent decades.
By contrast, the number of newly discovered species continues to rise sharply.
Using complex statistics, Worm and colleagues used the number of genera, families, and so on to predict Earth's number of unknown species, and their calculations gave them a number: 8.7 million.
An Issue of Statistics
Some experts called the research, published August 23 in the journal PLoS Biology, reasonable.
The new study "takes a hugely clever approach, and I think it's going to turn out to be a pretty important study," said Lucas Joppa, a conservation ecologist at Microsoft Research, the research branch of the software giant.
"If I asked you to count out 8.7 million pennies, that would take you a while, even if you had a whole lot of people doing it."
But Dan Bebber, an ecologist at the environmental group Earthwatch Institute, said the study relies on improper statistical methods.
The study team used a method called linear regression to calculate the number of Earth's species. But Bebber thinks this method is the wrong one for the data, and that the team should have used a technique known as ordinal regression.
As a result, the true number of species could be much higher or lower than 8.7 million, he said.
Nature's Library Disappearing
Overall, formally categorizing a new organism is a lot more complicated than discovering one, study co-author Worm said. Scientists must compare their specimen to museum samples, analyze its DNA, and complete reams of paperwork.
"It's a long process," he said. Most scientists "will describe dozens of species in their lifetime, if they're really lucky."
Unfortunately, extinction rates have accelerated to ten to a hundred times their natural level, Worm added.
(See "Extinctions Overestimated by 160 Percent?")
The information to be gained when new species are discovered "is nature's library, and we've only begun to decipher the first ten books," Worm said.
"We're throwing out entire books without having a look at them."

Possible Baby Bigfoot in the Utah Video?



TCC - After doing some more editing/enhancements of the bigfoot Utah video, there appears to be a possible baby bigfoot on the back of the adult. I know this seems unreal but in the first breakdown we saw what looked to be breast on the adult and if you notice there is a different color on the back of the adult. Plus we have some enhanced photos...so it's kind of interesting. As we stated before if this is a hoax it is a very good one.
