We recently had a sightings report from Pawtuckaway State Park and are currently do some field research in the area. We have now got in 2 more reports from the area. These sightings are from a few years ago, but are still great to establish the history of sightings in the area.

State: New Hampshire
County: Rockingham
Date of Sighting: 2005-2011
Time of Day: afternoon-morning
Nearest Town: Nottingham
Length of Sighting: 1 minute
How many Witnesses: 2
Any Photos/Videos: no
Describe sighting in detail:
I have had 2 unusual experiences within Pawtuckaway State Park.  The first was the summer of 2005 when I worked in Pawtuckaway for the summer season.  It was a rainy mid-summer day, and there was never much activity on those days.
It was early afternoon after lunch so roughly 1 or 2 p.m. a co-worker and I were driving back up to the office from down in the state park.  As we reached the area of “Mountain Pond” I saw something very large and very fast run across the road about 500ft. ahead.  The thing I remember the most was the stride and the upright position on 2 legs not 4.  It looked like it took 3 strides gliding across the road on 2 legs.  It was dark and hairy in appearance, but since we were so far away I didn’t get a detailed look at all.  My co-worker saw the same thing and was petrified.  As we pulled up to roughly the same place that it had crossed (my co-worker was shook and refused to exit the truck), I got out of the truck for a look and a listen.  I heard crashing and thumping through the forest.  Loud snapping of branches and logs as this thing was cruising.  I gave a shout, and all I got in return was more of the same snapping and thrashing of the forest.  It wanted out of sight, which was clear to me.
After listening for a few minutes to whatever it was run through the forest, I no longer heard anything.  It was on 2 legs, straight up not hunched. So it was either a very extra-large dark hairy human being running through the forest for fun or something else?  It was not a bear, it was not a moose, it was not a deer.  I have seen all of those animals before in the wild and they run on 4 legs not 2.  One more point worth noting is the direction in which the thing I saw was running in.  There were no trails, and there are no trails anywhere near the direction it was heading, in fact there are no roads or houses for many miles in that direction.  I was baffled, and my co-worker was admittedly scared.  I have only told my Dad and a couple of good friends, all of which are just as familiar with the area as I am.

Sighting #2

My next strange experience might not be as unexplainable, but it was certainly more alarming.  It was early spring 2011; there were tiny pockets of snow still remaining from the winter but it was a warm calm morning, no wind at all.  I was out on the backside of Pawtuckaway to meet some friends for a hike.  I arrived early and decided to head out before them and meet up with them at the tower (or at least somewhere on the trail up).  So I was heading up South Ridge Trail and like I said it looked to be a beautiful spring day, with no wind.  As I am walking along all of a sudden without any warning I hear a tree crack and fall, it scared the crap out of me because it was calm and silent and it was also only about 50-100 ft off the trail.  So that spooked me, but to make matters worse at roughly the same time the tree crashed down, there was a large deep grunt like sound followed by a sort of squealing sound on the opposite side of the trail about the same distance off as the tree.  So loud and abrupt sound of the tree coming crashing down apparently scared whatever was on the opposite side of the trail too.  After the initial crash of the tree and the sound of the animal there was the familiar thudding, and thrashing of the forest, as the thing that made the sound was out of there like lightning. 

Now I am only sharing this experience because of the overall proximity of events.  I didn’t see anything this day but I heard plenty.  I know what I heard could have been a bear or a moose who was simply as spooked by the tree falling as I was.  Whatever the case I picked up the nearest stick I could find and turned around and headed back toward the car to wait for my friends.  To this day I do not feel totally comfortable in the woods I grew up in when I am alone.

Thanks for sending in the reports/experiences. We hope to have a follow up to our field research in the future.

Thanks

Is a Swat Team Killing Bigfoot?

Is a swat team hunting bigfoot?
Bigfoot Swat Team? (Mock up photo)

Bigfoot Swat Team
We recently ask a question to the bigfoot community about the government and bigfoot, answers varied. (Post can be view by Clicking Here )

I thought I'd take a little time and write about some of the things I've heard about concerning the government and bigfoot.
I've been told by multiple people, who I will not name, that not only does the government know about bigfoot, but that they also have sort of a bigfoot swat team. This swat team hunts and kills bigfoots.

According to what I have been told there are some factors involved and this bigfoot swat team is not just out there randomly killing bigfoots. The way I understand it is like this, if a bigfoot is in close proximity to houses and has been causing trouble or showing aggressive behavior towards humans. The Swat team is sent in to remove (Kill) the Bigfoot. In other words if the bigfoot is being a nuisance it's removed from the property.

Here is where the story becomes even more interesting, Not only is there a possible government ran bigfoot swat team, but according to what I've been told, the government also hires certain individuals to kill theses problem Bigfoots. It would also seem some of these hired to kill bigfoot people are deeply embedded in the bigfoot community and look for reports of bigfoot sightings. Of course, they would appear to be just "normal" people who are interested in bigfoot. It also appears many of the hired to kill people are avid hunters.  The same factors apply for removing a bigfoot but according to what I have been told, these killings happen pretty often.

I have heard in graphic detail about these suppose bigfoot killings. I have debated within myself about even sharing any of this information. I know it will invoke disbelief in some people and maybe make others angry. I have no way of proving or disproving these reported killings, but the people who told me seem to be honest type folks. I do think the government knows that bigfoot is out there and is real but do they kill them? I can't say for sure.

I know this whole story seems totally unbelievable but I've had multiple people tell me about these killings. Some of these people do not know each other as far as I know.

Of course with something this odd, unbelievable and sensitive, I will not revel my sources.
I have attempted to take some precautions in an effort to protect the people who shared this information with me. I have thought and debated over sharing this information but in the end wanted to share and see if others have heard of anything like this. If you have heard of anything like this please contact me, We can keep it private and not share your name.

Thanks

Dead Werewolf ?

is this a dead werewolf
Dead Werewolf?

Dead Werewolf ?
 
We recently ran a story about a Werewolf causing a curfew (Found Here), well, today I ran across another Werewolf story. The above picture is from town of Palmeira dos Indios, it was taken back in June of 2013, according to the report.

As the story goes, this Werewolf looking thing was found dead and partly decomposed by an unnamed person. The carcass reportedly laid there for 3 days and then disappeared and no one knows where it went or who took it. Could it have been taken by some government agency or by some individual?

According to the report, the people in the town are somewhat split with some thinking it is for sure real and others thinking it is just a hoax.

I thought I'd take a little time and see if I could make the photo better.

Here is a cleaned up version of the original picture
Clean up version of dead Werewolf
Cleaned up
Here is some close ups

Legs

The meat on the back legs looks really natural but the face and hand/paw seems kind of odd.
In the end I guess we don't really know what it is, but it's a good way to start a Monday.

Thanks

Weird Thing Crosses Road

Gnome type creature crosses road
Actual Junction but a mock up of the event

Over 20 years experience with research and investigation of unexplained activity, working with video and websites. A trained wild land firefighter and a published photographer, and poet.


Got in another report of something odd running across the road.

- Start Report -
Name: William M*******
Email Address: Withheld
State: Kentucky
County: Madison
Date of Sighting: September 1998
Time of Day: 9 p.m.
Nearest Town: Berea
Length of Sighting: 15-20 seconds
How many Witnesses: 2
Any Photos/Videos: No
Describe sighting in detail:

My wife & I were headed home through town (from dinner) & when we got to the junction of U.S.25 & 1016, this thing crossed the road in front of our truck. It was like nothing we had ever seen before. I asked my wife if she had seen it. She said "yes, but when do gnomes run across the road?"

I thought I was the only one who saw what she saw but the only way I can describe it is that it was a 2-3 foot tall Gnome. Plain & simple.
We are drug & alcohol free & don't tell tall tales. It really freaked the both of us out. It came from the left, crossed the road in front of us at a quartering toward us angle & was in full sight of the both of us. There's no way this could have been a joke on us. It moved too smoothly & just like a person only 2-3 feet tall. It was dressed in what looked like tan fur & it seemed to have been wearing
something on it's head. Beats the crap out of most of the strange stuff I've seen here in Berea, and I've seen a lot of weird, creepy stuff. Thank you for listening. W.M.
- End Report -

Now I know this is a really odd report and some will just dismiss it, but I remembered about another report of a Gnome type sighting. So I looked it up.
Here is a link to it Terrorizing Gnome.

I wonder what it could have been? Has anyone else from that area seen this "thing"? Could it have been a baby bigfoot? Could it have been a prank ? I guess we can't really answer them questions but there is one we can answer and that is "was it weird?" - Yes. 

That's to good part about Cryptozoology, there's always a mystery.

Thanks for the report William, maybe someone else has seen it and will contact us.

Thanks

Hunters Encounter Bigfoot on a Farm

Over 20 years experience with research and investigation of unexplained activity, working with video and websites. A trained wild land firefighter and a published photographer, and poet.


Got in another report from Kentucky. This is a place I would like to go check out.

-Start Report-

Name: William M*******
Email Address: Withheld
State: KY
County: Madison
Date of Sighting: Oct 94?
Time of Day: 3-5 p.m.
Nearest Town: Berea
Length of Sighting: 15-30 seconds
How many Witnesses: 2
Any Photos/Videos: no
Describe sighting in detail:
My brother-in-law JT & I were scouting for a good deer hunting spot on some private land we had just received permission to hunt. Prime land that had never been hunted so we were excited.
We had made a big circle around the perimeter of this farm, then we decided to circle the edge of woods surrounding this massive corn field. We were wearing our camouflage with full coverage over our heads, faces, the whole bit. We had earlier in the day thought we were being followed but we just though it was the farm owners oldest son following us to see what we were doing. It never occurred to either one of us what would happen next.

As we were going to our truck, we had to cross this narrow pathway with high sides on our left & right. After thinking about it, it was the perfect ambush site. When we got a little into this pathway, we could hear growling coming from the high ground above us on both sides. Then a large rock about the size of a standard cinder block came crashing in behind us. We stopped, frozen in disbelief.
JT asked me if I heard that, which I gave him the yes signal. At this time we still had our face masks on so we promptly took them off. That's when there was another growl, only this one was much more threatening. We left without pause & never did go back to that farm.

I told the farm owner about our experience & he affirmed that there had been strange things going on there since he was a small child. He told me of a Bigfoot sighting that his family had encountered only a couple months prior to our event. He told me of this group of "things" coming into his shed where he had some home-cured meat hanging to cure & they took it all. He said he fired a shot over their heads to scare them off but they were not frightened by the gunfire.
He moved about two years after the year JT & I had our encounter. I asked why they moved & he said they couldn't take anymore intimidation from these "things."
One note is that his Mother still lives on that farm. It's mostly an unkempt farm & she's a fiery little woman. I wouldn't want her upset with me. I would love to try to do an investigation there but the family is reluctant to have people there. I'll keep trying to get permission and if I do, I'll contact you. Thank you for listening. W.M.

Thanks for the report and if you can get permission to investigate the area let me know.

Fever Pitch: The Strange Sounds of the Swamps

Strange Howls Recorded
Savannah River area

Fever Pitch: The Strange Sounds of the Swamps
What Are These Sounds?
By Dorraine Fisher

Some strange monster tales come out of the swamplands of North America. Since the times of the earliest settlers, stories of strange sounds and happenings have permeated the local culture. And some there have even seen some pretty weird things they couldn’t explain. A few were even left with a fear they couldn’t shake. Was the strange atmosphere of fog, heat, and gloom causing their minds to play tricks on them? Or is there really something creepy out there that we’ve yet to discover?

The following sound recording was submitted by Dave Moser and Carolina Bigfoot Field Research (CBFR). It was recorded on the cool night of February 8, 2014 in Georgia on the South Carolina side near the Savannah River. They recorded an entire event that night, but are left wondering what exactly it was that they captured. And Dave offers some details about the scene and the team’s thoughts about the events that unfolded that night in a statement. And you can make up your own mind what you think might be making these sounds:


Dave Moser:
"The strange howls were recorded on February 8, 2014 in one of our research areas on a Georgia Swamp near the SC/GA boarder. This is the same location where I had previously recorded a Troll like figure (The name Troll is used as a reference to an unknown small creature that was recorded on 11-16-13) on my Thermal Camera. The recording is 15 minutes long due to the intensity of the encounter which took place around 10PM. At that time we began to hear a pack of dogs; possibly hunting dogs (never saw or heard any hunters or lights from people following them) start to bark within 100-150 yards across the swamp we were camped on. Around the 3:30 minute mark the dogs barking intensity begins to pick up most likely because they have treed whatever it was they were tracking. You also begin to hear a loud dog-like howl close to the recorder (location was 75 yards below our camp). These Howls vary in intensity but the frequency ranges from 300 to 800Hz and occasionally higher. No dogs vocalize in the 350-500Hz range. What makes this howl suspect is the frequency and structure of the vocalization. Eventually the howler on our side of the swamp starts to head toward the group of dogs across the swamp and during this time there are also some strange scream-like sounds that seem to come from the area of where the dogs are barking insanely. At times the dogs stop barking as the loud howling animal moves toward their area. Once the loud howler gets close to the pack on the other side, you hear some yelp like cries from the direction of the barking pack. While listening to the encounter you can feel the intensity and suspense of the situation which was one of the most unusual things I have ever heard. We have no idea of true nature of what we encountered that night. My thermal camera is in for service so I did not have it at my disposal. Something of note is that during the 15 minutes of chaos, a semi-thick fog enveloped the swamp area for close to 5-8 minutes and then suddenly dissipated. Something else of note is the grunt, gasp or whisper heard around the 1:38 minute mark, we have no idea what that was as no one was near the digital voice recorder."

UFO Sighting Near Cumberland Gap

UFO seen in Cumberland Gap

UFO in Cumberland Gap Area

Name: Becky *****
Email Address: withheld
State: Kentucky
County: Bell
Date of Sighting: 2-13-14
Time of Day: nighttime
Nearest Town: Middlesboro
Length of Sighting: an hour
How many Witnesses: 2
Any Photos/Videos: yes
Describe sighting in detail:
Bright white strobe light with large flashes of red hovering in same spot over Cumberland Mountain- due to distance and the size of the light, I would estimate it to be quite large, possible three stories tall. After about an hour of watching I saw 12 small red lights pass in front of me in perfect formation; they banked left and headed for the flashing object over the mountain where they appeared to fly into the craft.
Within 10-15 minutes I heard helicopters approaching from the North, and the light disappeared. The craft most certainly appeared
to be round, as the way the lights flashed it was very similar to a lighthouse beacon effect. I got the impression whoever was manning the craft
did not care who saw it. The flashes of red were startling.

One Big Mistake Sightings Investigators Should Never Make

JC Johnson finds bigfoot tracks
Bigfoot Track by JC Johnson

One Big Mistake Sightings Investigators Should Never Make
Assessing The Basic Standard For A Sasquatch Description
By Dorraine Fisher

 
Are Bigfoot investigators making the best judgments they can possibly make when they decide if a witness is credible? Your answer may be yes, but are they missing an important element to the big picture?

I’ve been around cryptozoologists long enough now to have heard a lot of different stories. And it’s my job to pick through what might be credible and what might not. And it’s not always easy. But I think each of us has a prototype of the creature in our minds when we make those decisions. And lately I’m wondering if that’s really the best way to go.

Sure, there’s always the fear that a so-called witness is trying to make a fool out of us with their fake report. It’s something we face every day. And that makes all this work that much harder and sometimes unpleasant. But we have to do the best we can to rise above the ridicule and keep our eye on the ball.

Many investigators use the Patterson-Gimlin film creature as their standard for what a sasquatch should look like. And those who’ve had clear sightings of their own use their sighting as the standard to judge another’s story. But are they pigeonholing themselves into one basic description and deeming any description a fake that deviates from that?

Any of us that study the subject know that a description of a sasquatch is different in different areas of the continent. But, just as all humans are individuals, are we missing the point that all sasquatches are individuals also? That maybe, even within groups, they may vary a great deal in appearance? After all, we have males, females, adults, juveniles, babies, the old, the weak, the sick, the undernourished, the crippled or injured, etc. And their appearances would reflect that. I’ve heard of well-groomed adult females, scruffy, unkempt youngsters, enormous mature males, the often deformed-looking creatures of the southern swamps, human looking faces, dog-like faces, and ape-like, every size, shape, hair color and texture in the animal world, etc. The list goes on.

And what about sounds? All those sounds we often attribute to other animals, like the sounds of a coyote. Is it possible that a scream from a very young sasquatch could emulate the sounds made by coyotes or foxes or other animals? Possibly the similarities in sounds would be close enough that we would dismiss them as other animals and never give them a second thought. Is it possible that good witness testimony has often been blown off because it didn’t fit the normal criteria?

What about behavior? As different climates and topographies vary, so does all animal behavior. Harsher living conditions often make animals more aggressive or cautious. It also creates the need for different survival skill sets, different mating habits, and different food sources. But even within family groups, behavior can also vary depending on the animal’s emotional health, personal circumstances within the group, and its well-being.

All of these details should factor in to the big picture. Many researchers use Patty of the Patterson-Gimlin film to set the standard for what a sasquatch should look like. But what if we’d never had that standard to use? What would we be looking for then? Just because Patty was the subject of the first film-footage every captured, doesn’t mean that every sasquatch on the planet should look like her. Being first doesn’t factor in at all.

Of course, all investigators are doing the best job they can in taking these reports and they’re making a huge contribution to sasquatch research. But it’s always good to remind ourselves that the world of cryptids is never just black or white. We should never assume that all members of the same species will look and act much the same in any given area…or even in a single family group. They are individuals like we are.

So this all begs the questions: What are we looking for? And how do we determine if a witness is credible? The answer becomes more complicated here. But to dismiss a witness account because it doesn’t fit the description to which we’re accustomed is probably unwise and a serious disservice to the research overall. Our minds need to be open at all times and maybe we need to use other details to weed out the fakes.

Science tells us to take the evidence available and make the most obvious conclusion and run with it. If it walks like a duck and talks like a duck, we should conclude it’s probably a duck. But if a duck was a cryptid that was only seen on rare occasions by only a handful of witnesses that described a different-looking duck each time, how would we assess that? Would we assume that all creatures not fitting the original duck description were fake reports? Would we simply assume every account of a duck sighting was faked because the so-called witnesses each told different stories about what the elusive ducks looked like?

Luckily, there are now enough bigfoot sightings reports to give witnesses some credibility. More people believe now than ever before. So now we he need to just think outside the box a little bit more and see them as individuals. And no report should be completely dismissed based on a strange description of appearance or behavior.

I asked investigator JC Johnson from Crypto Four Corners in New Mexico to tell me his thoughts on the subject. And he offered this video of a report he took in his area that describes many different-looking individuals that were spotted there by locals. Check it out.

Could it be an Angel or Ghost?

is it an angel
Angel or Ghost?


This post by Thomas Marcum, Thomas is the founder/leader of the cryptozoology and paranormal research organization known as The Crypto Crew. Over 20 years experience with research and investigation of unexplained activity, working with video and websites. A trained wild land firefighter and a published photographer, and poet.


Could it be an Angel or Ghost?

This picture was taken in Mexico back in Aug. of 2013. As the young lady was swimming/bathing in a Cenote the photographer snapped this picture. Nothing was seen during the time of taking the photo.
A Cenote is natural pit, or sinkhole that exposes water underneath. Especially associated with the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico, cenotes were sometimes used by the ancient Maya for sacrificial offerings. These areas are considered sacred by many people.

Now just what is in the photo is open for debate and the main two opinions seem to be that it is a ghost from one of the ancient sacrifices? or is it some type of guarding angel watching over the young woman?

Here is a couple of zoomed in and slightly enhanced close up of the humanoid figure.
is this an angel?
#1 - Ghost or Angel?

#2 - human head?
 
In the zoomed in photo #2, I adjusted the contrast and you can see what appears to be a human colored head. The humanoid figure seems to have a bright glow and what could be consider wings. You can also see what looks like a hand with a thumb.

So again, what do you think it could be? Angel, Ghost, trick of light or hoax? I read where some even thought it could be Jesus himself warning of the End Times. What do you think?

Thanks

What is this Weird Creature?

What is this creature
What is this odd creature?


This post by Thomas Marcum, Thomas is the founder/leader of the cryptozoology and paranormal research organization known as The Crypto Crew. Over 20 years experience with research and investigation of unexplained activity, working with video and websites. A trained wild land firefighter and a published photographer, and poet.


What is this Creature?
The people in the village of Garuhape, in the province of Misiones of Argentina were surprised at the discovery of this weird bird like creature.
The creature appears to have a bird type head and wings but the body of a lion, as described by people from the village.

The unknown creature was discovered by Valeria Machado. The creature was under a fruit basket in Valeria's home. Valeria is a genetics student at Universidad Nacional de Misiones (UNAM).

Valeria said, "At first I thought it was a bird but soon realized that the creature had ears. Then I concluded that it was a newborn rat that could have suffered some kind of mutation."

The creature only measured about 4 inches long and was found in January 2014. The theory of a mutated rat is not being accepted by everyone.

Here is a close up photo of the head of the creature.
What is this thing
Mutated rat or something else?
In the photo the creature is laying in the lid from a small jar, some think it is a plate but it's not. It is also reported that the creature is still being looked at and studied. Whatever it is, it seems to be weird and out of the norm. It appears to have a birds beak and feathers but also a long tail and ears. Plus arms and legs, with feet not like bird feet. It's very odd. 

So do you think it is a mutated rat, A hoax or something unknown?

Thanks

By Dorraine Fisher

 
We don’t like to talk about it much, but monster mysteries are moneymakers. As long as the mystery of the monster exists, there is a whole world of marketable goods and services that surround it. Take the mystery away and we’re not so sure the money would keep flowing in so well. And one of these industries is tourism. Millions of dollars every year come from Bigfoot curiosity seekers in the Pacific Northwest, United States. But what if all the so-called evidence of a monster is hoaxed? And to what lengths will people go to keep a legend alive?

Hoaxing is rampant everywhere there are monster legends and the Loch Ness Monster is no different. A man named George Edwards waited some 26 years of watching the loch to get the perfect photo of Nessie. Or did he?

Nessie?


As he presented his photo (above) in 2012 to the press of a very clear hump protruding out of the water, he insisted it was the real deal. And many believed it…or at least wanted to believe it. But when rumors of hoaxing began to swirl, Edwards told the press he had already confessed it was a fake just a few days after he’d presented it. But strangely, no record of this confession was ever found.

"People come here for a holiday and a bit of fun," Edwards said. "I’m one of the people who has brought thousands of people to the Highlands over the years, and I can tell you they don’t come here for the science."

Edwards had been involved in the 2011 National Geographic documentary Truth Behind The Loch Ness Monster and had access to the carbon fiber fake hump they used in the film.

Edwards said he had spent most of his life on the loch. He said he’d spend 60 hours a week taking Nessie enthusiasts out on the loch on his boat every week, and had led many Nessie hunts over the years. And he claimed he still really believes there’s a monster lurking out there.

But Nessie sightings have been few and very far between over the years. And this is not exactly the best news for tourism around the loch. Was it his intention to stage a sighting to drum up business? Well, whatever his motivation for the hoax might have been, he managed to keep the public focused on the monster for a while longer. Maybe that’s all Nessie lovers needed for now.

Fear of Werewolf Causes Curfew

Werewolf causing panic
Werewolf?

Werewolf in Brazil?
This report comes out of Brazil. It seems a man, known as Pingo, had a close encounter with what he described as a werewolf. Pingo described it as a black monster standing about 5 foot tall. Pingo at first became the target of jokes around the town, until others told about hearing and seeing something strange.

The incident is being taken seriously and the city of Sao Goncalo dos Campos, in the Metropolitan Region of Feira de Santana how issued a curfew of 9pm for the city. The curfew was enacted about 2 weeks ago. This is being covered by major newspapers in the region.

A local resident of the area released a home security video of the possible werewolf. What do you make of it? Hoax or misidentification?


Thanks

Do Sasquatches Have X-Ray Vision?

Do Sasquatches Have X-Ray Vision?
The Answer Is Probably Yes, But There’s More…
By Dorraine Fisher

 

We do a lot of guessing about Sasquatch. And so many super powers have been assigned to them, that it’s hard to determine what might be fact and what might be fiction. But according to new findings in science, these creatures as we understand them likely have X-ray vision. But guess what. So do you.

Animals that have eyes on the sides of their head like rabbits, horses, snakes, fish, etc. have adapted a panoramic view of their environment; the ability to scan a vast expanse for food and for danger. They can even see behind themselves. But what about those creatures that have forward facing eyes like humans, tigers, monkeys, and sasquatches as we understand them? What purpose could they serve?

Since we don’t have the visual capabilities of other animals, we might think that our forward facing eyes are a handicap. But they’ve actually evolved for a very good reason: to cut through the clutter of our world…or the world we once inhabited. As we were once mostly dense forest and jungle dwellers in the beginning, our eyes evolved accordingly to compensate for this terrain.

But you say you don’t believe you have this ability? Take this test:

Take your index finger and lay it vertically on the bridge of your nose and look straight ahead. When you do this, do you notice you can see right through you finger? If you close one eye, the finger blocks your view and your field of vision is greatly narrowed. But with both eyes open, you can see right through it. This is more correctly called binocular vision, and you’ve evolved this way because it was important for your ancestors’ existence.

This ability is only adapted by certain animals that live in leafy environments with many obstacles. It gives them the ability to visually "see through" some of that vegetation so they can navigate through it faster and more easily chase food and run away from danger.

Binocular vision works like a very bright light shining on the objects right in front of us that would block our view, allowing us a deeper view of the world ahead of us. And it works really well as long as the distance between your eyes is wider than the objects in your way. The forward facing eyes help us to see a denser area around ourselves. This is an advantage that animals with sideways facing eyes don’t have. For them, it was necessary to see things that were very far away in a wide area. But for us and Bigfoot there was no such need. So we developed this very different visual skill that’s just as amazing.

You may have noticed this trait in yourself before but thought it was some kind of optical illusion. We’ve always been told that, as humans, our eyes are flawed and substandard in the animal world. So if you’ve been feeling a little jealous of Bigfoot and all their purported amazing abilities, you can claim this one also for yourself. *******DF
