Has Bigfoot turned into an urban scavenger?
The San Antonio Bigfoot story is quite intersting. There are allegedly footprints, handprints, and some say itis a baboon.
From Loren Coleman:
“...Fidel Amaton, who is a technician at the body shop, was the first to see the animal early in October 2009 as he was throwing trash into the bin behind the shop. Amaton said it was early in the morning and he still was rubbing the sleep from his eyes when he was startled by what appeared to be a monkey that jumped out of the bin.
“…Still, the occasional discovery of above-ground alligators in New York — on Staten Island, in Central Park or in Queens — refreshes the story. And of course, there was that one case in 1935. Salvatore Condoluci, the teenager who roped that alligator, is now 92. Though he has forgotten some of the details, he still remembers hearing the thrashing in the icy water beneath the manhole, first seeing the creature’s head, and using a rope to lasso and haul it to the surface…”
Loren Coleman brings news that the New York Times has managed to track down the person who told the story in 1932 about a 7 foot long alligator in the New York sewer.
“…These stories were backed by scattered reports, mostly very old, of alligators living in sewer systems that appeared in papers around the country, including Atlanta, Dallas and Newark. The most widely cited of these was an article in The Times on Feb. 10, 1935, headlined “Alligator Found in Uptown Sewer.”
The Pink Flamingo has been fascinated by coelacanths since I read a book about them in elementary school. The other day a baby coelacanth was filed swimming by Aquamarine Fukushima.
“...The Japan Times and other news outlets are reporting on November 18, 2009, that a team from an aquarium in Iwaki, Japan has successfully, in a world first, photographed juvenile coelacanths (example above), a fish regarded as a living fossil, off Indonesia’s Sulawesi Island.
Aquamarine Fukushima reports that the small newborns were found Oct. 6, 2009, at a depth of 161 meters in Manado Bay off North Sulawesi Province. This is near where the Indonesian coelacanth was first discovered in a fish market in 1997, and then off-shore in 1998…”
