The Jersey Devil - New Evidence Emerging (Documentary)

A 60-person research team delves into the Pine Barrens of New Jersey in search of the legendary Jersey Devil, a horse-headed, bat-winged creature reportedly haunting the area for the past 250 years.

The Jersey Devil is a legendary creature or cryptid said to inhabit the Pine Barrens of Southern New Jersey, United States. The creature is often described as a flying biped with hooves, but there are many different variations. The most common description is that of a kangaroo-like creature with the head of a goat, leathery bat-like wings, horns, small arms with clawed hands, cloven hooves and a forked tail. It has been reported to move quickly and often is described as emitting a "blood-curdling scream."

The Jersey Devil has worked its way into the pop culture of the area, even lending its name to New Jersey's team in the National Hockey League, and appeared on an early episode of The X-Files.

There are many possible origins of the Jersey Devil legend. The earliest legends date back to Native American folklore. The Lenni Lenape tribes called the area around Pine Barrens "Popuessing", meaning "place of the dragon". Swedish explorers later named it "Drake Kill", "drake" being a word for dragon, and "kill" meaning channel or arm of the sea (river, stream, etc.) (in Dutch)

Animal X: Monsters of the Deep

Many believe that huge unidentified monsters lurk in the world's oceans and waterways. Do remnants of the dinosaur age still exist, and is this what people are seeing off the coast of Wales in Britain and in San Francisco Bay in the USA?

The Animal X - Natural Mystery Unit is on the hunt for Monsters of the Deep. Daniel and Natalie talk with eyewitnesses who have videotaped a pod of huge sea serpents. We have the videotape analyzed by an expert who says the tape is not a fake and the monsters are real.

So much of the ocean is still unexplored. Could there be large species we are yet to discover? Scientists answer 'yes - it's most likely', and they've even recorded sounds from the depths of the ocean that they can't explain. Have you heard of the Bloop? It's the sound of a huge underwater creature and is the biggest mystery in the ocean today. Could it be the sea monster people have been talking about?

They meet the scientists from NOAA a US government agency. Scientists here say the biggest threat to any species in the ocean is over fishing.

It's time for Daniel and Natalie to slip on their wetsuits and scuba gear and go exploring the big blue. Join them as they dive to 'Aquarius', the only inner-space station in the depths of the Atlantic Ocean, searching for answers.

Scottish Wildcats sent to England to halt decline of ‘Highland tiger’

Rare Scottish wildcats will be sent to England as part of a conservation programme to save the species, it was revealed yesterday.

They will be removed from the Scottish countryside as part of a national wildcat action plan that aims to reverse the decline of the “Highland tiger” by 2019.

The six-year plan sets out a package of measures that offer the “best prospect” for the species, which conservationists fear may number fewer than 150 breeding pairs in the wild — fewer than the Bengal tiger.

Bigfoot - With Special Guest: Guy Edwards 11/10/13 7PM EST

Join us as we talk Bigfoot with Guy Edwards. He is the author of the blog, Bigfoot Lunch Club. His own unique approach to Bigfoot is to champion three major disciplines; paleo-anthropology, primatology, and statistical mathematics. We will be discussing what Guy thinks is wrong with the current research that is being done as well as HopsSquatch and the upcoming Sasquatch Summit.

Listen to the show here:

Call in to listen live or to speak with the hosts: (347) 326-9859 Press 1 to talk.
We will be taking callers the second hour of the show.

Extinct 'Megamouth' Shark Species Finally Identified

LOS ANGELES — Scientists have finally identified a new species of megamouth shark that prowled the oceans about 23 million years ago, nearly 50 years after the first teeth were discovered and then forgotten.

The ancient shark likely prowled both deep and shallow waters for plankton and fish, using its massive mouth to filter food.

"It was a species that was known to be a new species for a long time," said study co-author Kenshu Shimada, a paleobiologist at DePaul University in Chicago. "But no one had taken a serious look at it," said Shimada, who described the new species here at the 73rd annual meeting of the Society for Vertebrate Paleontology. [8 Weird Facts About Sharks]

Shark teeth
Scientists first found shark teeth from the species in the 1960s, but at the time, there were no similar living creatures, so scientists didn't quite know what to make of the find. Over time, researchers turned up hundreds of similar teeth along the coast of California and Oregon. All the specimens were tossed in a drawer and forgotten in the collections of the Los Angeles County Museum and a few other California museums.  
Then in 1976, scientists discovered the modern megamouth shark, dubbed Megachasma pelagios, which feeds exclusively on shrimplike creatures called plankton. The sharks use their mammoth mouths to engulf plankton-filled water, forcing the water through gills equipped with a filtering apparatus called gill rakers, which direct plankton into the digestive track.

The monster beast is also a vertical migrator, meaning the shark lurks in the deep ocean during the day, but comes up to the shallow surface waters chasing plankton swarms at night, Shimada said.

Scientists haven't officially named the new species yet, but the genus will be called Megachasma, Shimada said.
