In some inaccessible places in the world, there are some mysterious creatures wandering around. They always avoid humans, but they leave behind some imaginative clues from time to time. They include Bigfoot in the United States and Canada, wild men in China, Snow monsters in the Himalayas of Nepal, and little foot monsters in Indonesia. For a long time, whether these creatures exist or not, what they are is in dispute. But what seems certain is that these creatures that are both familiar and unfamiliar to humans have a common feature-they look like humans!
The mystery of “Sasquatch”
Many scholars believe that there is really a Sasquatch Sasquatch Sasquatch in the world. They are mostly distributed in the Americas, and there are enough human and physical evidence to confirm their existence.
I have seen wild people such as: American Indians, white shepherds, trappers, etc. They provided many reports, photos, casts of foot prints (including the footprints of a lame Sasquatch), excrement and hair found near the footprints, and tapes of the Sasquatch pronunciation. Also collected many local Indian folklore related to this. Finally, it is worth mentioning that the famous film by Roger Patterson captured a Sasquatch that appears to be a female.
On the Fraser River in British Columbia, Blindby Krek, there lived an American Indian family named Chapman. On a certain day in 1940, a 2.4-meter-tall male Sasquash savage entered the village. The savage came out of the woods and walked near the farm buildings. At first Mrs. Chapman thought it was a bear or something like a bear, but then she saw that it was a savage, and she was so scared that she hugged the children and ran. After learning about this, the whole family went back to the house to check and found that there were large footprints of 16 inches long and 8 inches wide near the house, and each step was 1.2 meters long. A large bucket of fish in the house was knocked over and scattered all over the ground. The savage and size he saw in his family seemed to belong to a Sasquatch male. This discovery (it is worth pointing out that Sasquatch likes fish) is of equal importance to the Soviet discovery in Pamir.
In 1955, there was another more meaningful discovery in the Miga Mountains of British Columbia. A road builder named William Rowe (who is also an experienced hunter and forest watcher) saw a female Sasquatch. This savage is about 2.1 meters tall, big, brown-black, silver hair, and big breasts. There are two long arms and a pair of big feet. Luo also noticed that she walked like a human, striding with her hind feet on the ground first. The back of her head seemed to be slightly higher than the front, her nose was flat, her two ears looked like human ears, and her small eyes. Her neck is so short that it can hardly be seen. Before he could finish looking carefully, the savage woman found him right beside her, and quickly walked away.
Osman, a woodcutter from Northern Europe, said that in 1924, he was captured by a Sasquatch when he was hunting near Port Thomas, across from Vancouver Island. This encounter was a sensation, but he himself did not spread it for many years, because he thought that others would not believe that it was true. He affirmed that in one night, a Sasquash savage carried him along with his sleeping bag, walked about 40 kilometers in the mountains, and finally reached “a family” in a deep valley surrounded by cliffs. There are father, mother, son and little daughter. He lived safely in “this family” for 6 days, and later escaped. He clearly described the situation of the family. They neither lighted a fire nor had tools. But Osman emphasized that they have the same place as people.
There was another typical new discovery at 8 am on June 6, 1978. Witnesses were two senior geological survey engineers Kendall and Hathaway who were over 50 years old. Both of them are scientists who have been engaged in outdoor work for a long time and have extensive field work experience. On the same day they got off the truck they had taken halfway, and they climbed to the north peak of Cascade Mountain in Washington State, which is about 1,200 meters above sea level. The weather was clear and the temperature was very low. The two didn’t even think about the savages. Suddenly, behind the felled shrubs on the opposite side, a big black figure quickly flashed past, attracting the attention of the two. At first they thought it was an individual. Later, it occurred to me that there is no logging industry here. They are a small privately operated timber storage yard. When they looked again, they found that the guy was huge, walking upright like a human, and deliberately hiding behind a large piece of wood. This guy has dark brown skin and long hair. They saw its head, arms and broad shoulders, but it ran away in just a second or two. Because it was too sudden, the two looked at each other in shock and could not speak for a while. When they understood, they walked quickly to the place where the savage disappeared to find footprints. The ground is too hard and there are too many rocks to see anything. They had said before that they were very familiar with that area and there could be no savages, but now they actually believe that the family they saw was the Shasquazhi savages.
What is even more surprising is that many scholars believe that the American Sasquatches evolved from the migration of Chinese great apes into the American continent.
In 1970, a new element was added to the description of the huge upright monsters around the world, that is, some unproven biped may be related to UFOs.
One night in August 1972, a strange incident similar to a UFO occurred in Rockdale, Indiana, USA. A family named Rogers lived in a mobile home there.
What happened is this: At first, the family saw a luminous object hovering over a nearby cornfield. Then they heard a sound somewhere nearby in the silence of the night several times. One of them went out to see what was going on, and he saw a tall behemoth folding corn stalks in the field. Mrs. Rogers saw from the window of the hut that it looked like a man when standing, but walking on all fours.
They couldn’t see very clearly because it happened at night, but they could see that this guy had black hairs on his body and gave off a “dead animal or garbage” smell. This guy has a unique feature, that is, it seems to be a vain thing, because:
”The incredible thing is that we did not find any trace of it, even if it walked through the mud. It walked and jumped. , But it seems like you can’t touch anything. When it passes through the grass, you can’t hear any sound. Sometimes when you look at it, it’s as if your eyes can penetrate its body.”
However, the monster did not Not always without leaving a trace. Several farmers have also seen it. After this guy came, they found dozens of dead chickens with mutilated limbs, but they had not been eaten. The Berding family found dead chickens, the grass was trampled, the fences were destroyed, and the cucumbers and potatoes in the pig food bucket were taken out. One night, they saw this guy standing at the door of their chicken coop. Little Boyding said:
”This guy blocked the lights in the chicken coop. The door of the chicken coop is 1.8 meters wide and 1.4 meters high. At the upper edge of the door, its neck should be higher than the door, but it does not have a neck! It looks like a gorilla to me. It has long brown hair and a rust-colored body. I didn’t see it. Its eyes or face. It makes a deep cry.”
When the guy ran away, the Berdings chased him and fired. Although they were close, they must have hit him, but he didn’t seem to care.
Jon Eric Beckyod is the founder and director of the Bigfoot Research Institute in Seattle, Washington, USA. According to him, witnesses to Bigfoot or Sasquatch occur every month. On July 3, 1981, loggers in northwestern Washington state saw a 2.7 or 3 meters tall Sasquatch 120 meters away. On October 18th, a logger heard a cry while picking mushrooms in the same area and smelled the pungent smell peculiar to this huge long-haired monster.
The Bigfoot Research Institute not only collects various sighting reports, but also collects Bigfoot hair and blood samples. The following 4 samples collected at the scene have been carefully studied by scholars who are skeptical of Bigfoot.
Once in Rock National Park, Maryland, near Bel Air. One night in 1975, Peter Ronnick drove a sports car and collided with an animal he believed to be a bigfoot. After the animal recovered its balance, it rushed towards the car, making a grunting sound, and then ran away again. The animal’s hair remained in the dent where the headlight was hit, and these hairs were taken for analysis.
On the evening of January 4, 1976, on the Indian Reservation in Bellingham, Washington, a Shasquatz tried to forcibly break into the Jefferson’s pantry. The Jeffersons were awakened by the sound of broken glass. Mr. Jefferson jumped up and grabbed a gun. He found that the glass of the window of the food storage room 1.5 meters above the ground was broken, and the broken glass was scattered on the floor with blood stains on it. Black hair with a white tip was found in the glass fragments on the window frame and floor. Jon Beckyod personally collected these blood and hair samples, as well as many reports on sightings of Sasquatch and their attempts to break into reserved homes.
In May 1976, near Sacramento, California, a group of teenagers saw a Sasquatch branch breaking an apricot tree and eating the fruit from it. This guy left a footprint of 64 centimeters long. These young people took the hair it left from the fence and gave it to Beckyod.
In 1977, in Lebanon, Oregon, a giant beast screamed while pulling down the door of a barn and smashed the wall. Beckyod removed the hair it left behind.
Vincent Saric, a natural anthropologist and biochemist at the University of California, Berkeley, tested the blood stains on the broken glass of Jefferson’s house. He found that it was blood of a relatively advanced primate. The hair samples taken at the same time and other hair samples obtained several times were analyzed and tested by three experts. Their conclusion is that these hairs are not of humans, dogs, bears or other similar mammals, nor of any known primates, but they are similar to those of gorillas.
Beckyod said: “These animals are huge and cannot be human. Obviously there are many things here that are still a mystery. They may be primates that are related to humans.”
The Himalayas track the “Snowman”
China’s Tibet is located on the “roof of the world” and is also one of the most mysterious places in the world. “Savage” appeared from time to time in the Tibetan Plateau. Tibetan people called “savage” a “god” and “ghost”, and called “savage” as “Brother Mi”, divided into “Gami” (the “savage” of snow mountain, also called “snowman “), “Nami” (forest “savage”), “Zami” (rock “savage”) and “Mi Geqiong” (little “savage”). Humanoid animals called “bear people” in many places in Tibet also belong to the category of “savages.” It has been investigated that “savages” not only can walk upright, have no tail, have hair all over their body, and resemble a human shape, but also make various sounds that express joy, anger, sorrow, and joy. They can also use stones and wooden sticks to imitate people. Do simple tasks. “Savage” generally does not mean harm to people, unless it finds that it has been attacked, it will attack people.
As early as the 18th century, Americans and British people discovered the “Snowman” in the Himalayas. In the 1850s, the former Soviet Union published the monograph “Snowman”. The Chinese mountaineering team also encountered a “snowman” on Mount Everest. To this day, “savages” are still seen frequently and have aroused the interest of many people.
So, do the Himalayas really have snowmen? The reason why people believe it is because there are many witnesses, and the reason why it is suspected is because it has not caught a real snowman. However, after hearing the details described by many witnesses, I have to believe it.
In 1954, a snowman expedition team composed of zoologists and ornithologists organized by the “Jeremer” newspaper came to Nepal to investigate the Himalayas. The visit lasted from January to May. Regrettably, they have never witnessed a snowman. However, this does not mean that they have not gained much. One of the rewards was that they found continuous footprints that were several kilometers long. Another gain is that they found two hair scalps in Pan Ge Bao Qi and Ke Li Ge Temple. It is said to be the snowman, and it has been preserved for 300 years. The hair is red and dark brown, and the top center is raised backwards in the shape of a pointed helmet. It was identified that these two scalps were not human, but a kind of primate. Maybe the locals did not lie. In addition, they also interviewed local Sheerpa and Tibetan residents, and asked their witnesses to describe the shape and behavior of the snowman. What shocked the expedition team was that the description of the snowman by the witnesses was surprisingly similar. What does this mean?
In 1956, Polish journalist Marian Belicki made a special trip to Tibet to inspect the snowman. He didn’t gain much, just collected some stories. He was lucky enough to find a herder who claimed to have fought a snowman. The herder said that in 1954, he returned to Tibet with the caravan from Nepal and walked to Yadong. In the bushes next to the village, he saw a man covered with hair. Little snowman. Marian Belicki returned to Poland happily with these unconfirmed stories.
In 1958, the geologist Fr Baldette visited the Himalayas with the French expedition. On Kalu Peak, he found a footprint that had just been stepped on. The foot must be quite big, thirty centimeters long and ten centimeters wide. He was very excited at that time, thinking that the snowman who was thinking about it was not far away, and he would be honored to see it. However, after looking around for a long time, there was no sign of the snowman. He is inevitably a little depressed.
In 1958, a member of the American mountaineering team saw a snowman with a disheveled hair eating frogs by a small river south of the Himalayas.
In 1960, an expedition led by E. Hilary found a piece of snowman’s scalp in the Kongjiang Temple of the Himalayas.
The Poles were not satisfied with the story brought back by their reporter Marian Belicki, and the romantic blood flowing in their national veins made them once again attack the Himalayas. In 1975, they organized another mountaineering team to climb Mount Everest. Near their base camp south of Mount Everest, they found the footprints of a snowman. It is said that before this, a Sherpa girl from a nearby village came here to herd the cows. It was here that the girl and the yak met the snowman. The snowman is about 1.67 meters tall and has brown and black hair. It suddenly jumped out from the side, ran towards the yak with its teeth and claws, biting off the yak’s throat. The Poles both heard the story and got their footprints. They felt it was worthwhile.
The girl recounted what happened at the time: “That was when I was 16 years old. One afternoon, I went to put the yak on the mountain south of my house. The grass there was good. The yak was eating very seriously. I had nothing to do, so I was humming a little song. Look at the human-shaped mountain in front. Suddenly, I heard footsteps behind me, and when I looked back, it turned out to be a weird man with long hair. Before I could react, the guy came in front of me. I heard the adults talk about us. There is a snowman, I think this guy is a snowman. I think this is over. It is said that the snowman will snatch a girl when he sees a girl, snatch it back to them as the wife of the village, for them to ruin. But the guy ignored me , Pass by me, go straight to the yak. It’s really one thing and one thing. The usually fierce and mighty yak loses its spirit in front of that guy. All that is left is nervousness. I see it shivering. The snowman did not It didn’t let it go because it was shivering and tame. Instead, it rushed over and hit the bottom of its neck with a bite. The blood sprayed straight out. The snowman blocked the bite opening with his mouth, and sucked blood in his belly gruntingly. Look. Looking at the fierce look of that guy, I was paralyzed and shrank on the ground and couldn’t get up. I thought, he drank the yak blood, he should come to deal with me. I have to wait for death. After he sucked for a while, maybe The blood in the yak’s veins was almost absorbed by it, so he stood up. Maybe he still felt uncomfortable, so he raised his big hand and struck it against the yak’s head. This guy didn’t know how strong he was, just This palm smashed the yak’s head to pieces, and the brains were smashed out. I think I might not have a minute of work. It turned around, looked at me, I looked at it. Its mouth was full of blood and there was blood on its face. It looked scary. To my surprise, it didn’t come to me, but turned around and walked towards the woods on the mountain.”
A big mystery in Siberia
Some of the most interesting information about Russian savages comes from Siberia: there are two types of savages, one is very human, and the other is a variant of a large animal. All reports are more complete due to the embellishment of folk tales and legends. The former human-like savages only appear in the Yakutia region in northeastern Siberia (located in the northeast corner of China, at a few 60 degrees north latitude). The latter kind of savages appear scattered across the entire Siberia from west to east. This is truly a vast area worthy of the name. The longest distance from east to west is 8,000 kilometers. We found that people’s descriptions of savages across Siberia are amazing. Similarities. These hairy animals appear in tundra and coniferous forests, and they lead to many unbelievable stories.
The desolation and vastness of Siberia is unimaginable, and its entire area exceeds 1295 square kilometers. In the past 20 years, although the Soviet government encouraged emigration to this vast wilderness, the population density here is still very low. The native residents of Siberia are mostly semi-nomadic reindeer families. A large part of the savage story is told by these herdsmen, and the other part is reported by scientists and scholars. These foreigners, out of their hobbies, have a keen interest in investigating savages, and they use the descriptions of local residents to check the information. Many dramatic experiences often happen where locals work. The following is a story told by an old man.
”At 300 meters away from the river, two adults and six boys are stacking hay with me. There is a thatched house nearby, which is a temporary residence during mowing. We suddenly discovered that there are two people on the other side of the river that we have never seen before. Monsters of —— one is short and black, the other is more than 2 meters tall and gray-white in body. They look like humans, but we immediately recognize that they are not humans. Everyone stopped cutting the grass and stared blankly at what they were doing. They circled a big willow tree. The big white monster ran in front, and the small black monster chased behind, as if playing, running very fast. They were naked, and after running for a few minutes, they ran away quickly , And then disappeared. We ran back to the hut and stayed for an entire hour without daring to come out. Then, we took up what we had as a weapon, took a gun, took a boat, and sailed to the other side where the monsters played Place. There, we saw many large and small footprints. I can’t remember the toe marks on the small footprints, but I paid attention to the large footprints at the time. They were really big, like those left by wearing big winter boots Imprints, but the toes seem to be clearly separated. There are 6 clearer large-foot prints, all of the same length. The toes are not put together like humans, but slightly separated.”
This report is interesting. , There are two reasons: first, it is not one person who sees the animals, but many people see them at the same time (and there are other villagers); second, they see one big and one small wild people together at the same time. This inevitably raises a question: Is that little child of the same race? Half a century has passed, and there is no need to over-examine the details at that time. Judging from the basic situation described and the footprints, it is likely to be a snow human animal.
When many investigators searched for information about Siberian snowmen with great interest, they learned that snowmen often steal dead animals (such as rabbits, wild boars, etc.) hunted by hunters, and inferred that snowmen are carnivorous species. Scholars speculate that during the evolution of the Siberian snowman, the appearance of a strange degradation phenomenon made the snowman a big mystery in Siberia.
In Polynesian folklore, these mysterious clans are mentioned many times. They lived on the Pacific islands long before the ancestors of Polynesians came here. For example, the Maori legend preaches that the great Gupi, who lived in Central Polynesia, discovered New Zealand. Some myths preach that Gupi saw no people in New Zealand, but only flocks of flying birds, while some myths said that he saw tall people with flat noses and dark skin. Gupi was a character in the 10th century. Before he came to New Zealand, there were moa hunters living there, but they disappeared mysteriously.
The genealogy of Hawaii’s leaders shows that the ancestors of the Polynesians first came to Hawaii in the 8th century. However, measurements made with radiocarbon 14 show that people were inhabited there as early as the 2nd century AD. So, who discovered the Hawaiian Islands earlier than the Polynesians and left their footprints there? Perhaps the legend of Hawaii can solve this mystery.
Some elderly people in Hawaii have repeatedly confirmed that their ancestors had seen the Manehune in the jungles of Kauai. The Manehune were the mysterious dwarves in Hawaii, Central Polynesia and Tahiti. They are short, only about 60-90 centimeters (some people say they only reach the knees of ordinary people), but they are very strong. They are covered with hair, round and muscular. The faces of these dwarves are terrible. The skin on their faces is rosy and smooth, the big eyes sparkle under thick eyebrows, their low foreheads are full of hair, and their noses are short and fat. They are happy by nature, very kind, helpful, and good at talking. They have a loud voice and barking like a dog. As soon as the fish on the sea heard their conversation, the scared ones flee. Once, they held a grand celebration to celebrate the completion of a reservoir on Kauai Island. The noise from the venue scared the birds on the island and fled to the nearby island of Oahu.
The Manhanhunes are also excellent walkers, and they can walk around Kauai 6 times a day for 150 kilometers. They are brave and fearless, with great power. They are not afraid of anything except dogs and eagles. Even the cruel shark is not their opponent. The Mannehunes live in houses and caves made of banana leaves and do not yet know how to use fire. It was not until later that a Manehune girl married a native Hawaiian leader that they learned to use fire.
According to the legend, due to various reasons, the earliest residents of Hawaii were left with only three ethnic groups, namely Knawa, Knam and Manehune. Later, the first two nationalities were gradually eliminated in the competition, and only the Manhan Hune were left. There are a large number of Manehune people. Kauai is their base camp. There are 1.5 million dwarves living there, and there are 15,000 on the other islands. Later, their population continued to decrease, and when Kaumu Ali, the last ruler of Kauai, came to power, they only had 10,000 left.
Almost all legends preach that the Manehune people are a peaceful and kind-hearted people and never take the initiative to attack others. They have been living in harmony with the Hawaiians for a long time, regardless of whether the latter invites them or not, they always take the initiative to help the Hawaiians in construction. The buildings on the Hawaiian islands, such as all kinds of strange rocks, round rocks, unique caves, stacked stones, as well as barrages, cisterns, and temples, are all related to their hard work. They also helped Polynesian hero and navigator Lati build a magical ship, and moved the ship from the jungle to the shore.
The strange thing is that these magical construction troops always work at night. Once the day comes, they immediately stop working and hurriedly return to their homes.
In the Boshobofer Museum in Hawaii, the manuscripts of the representative of Hawaiian folk creation, Aleraham Fernatier, are preserved, which record the scene of the Manehune building 34 temples. Ten of these temples are on Oahu, three are on Hawaii, four are on Molokai, ten are on Kauai, and one is on Niehoma. The temples are all huge square venues, surrounded by walls, and the center of the venue is an altar. The largest temple on the island of Hawaii is called Maookini. It was built by dwarves overnight. The wall is 6 meters high, 2.5 meters thick, and covers an area of 3,600 square meters.
In the lives of the people of Hawaii, water and irrigation canals play a very important role. The irrigation system in the Hawaiian Islands is highly artistic, and everyone who sees it praises it. These irrigation systems are also masterpieces of Mannehune. There is a myth that a Hawaiian leader named Ola wanted to build a large pool. He asked a warlock named Pei to help. A relative of the Piusocracy was living among the Manneranges, and he asked Ola: Only no one was allowed to go out at night before he could summon the dwarves to build a barrage on the Waymana River. Ola immediately imposed a ban on his subjects: everyone must hide at home, dogs are not allowed to bark, and all chickens must be stuffed in pumpkin containers. So, on a quiet night, the Manehune people started to work. They transported the stones from the cliff and built a barrage overnight.
Who are these legendary mysterious dwarves? Are they the earliest inhabitants of Hawaii? The ancestors of Hawaiians believed that when their sacred ancestor “Hawaii Loa” (the “Great Hawaii”) came to Hawaii, the Manehune had already lived there. The legend of Central Polynesia also speaks of the Manahune (namely the dialect form of Mannerane), who did not live there as mythological dwarf builders, but as very realistic people, as early as Tahiti The mythical ancestors lived there before they came there.
Ji Ranji Shiloa, a scholar who has studied Polynesian culture and ethnography for a long time, believes that Polynesian people always like to lift their ancestors to the sky, and at the same time try to belittle those who discovered these islands and lived there earlier than they did. Pioneer. He believes that the Manehune people moved to Hawaii from Tahiti. Later, the Polynesians came to Hawaii, and they gradually crowded out these dwarves to the densely forested and inaccessible island of Kauai. Year after year, these dwarves moved to the deserted and undulating mountains of Nihow and Necke Islands. They left stone statues, tall squares and straight stone pillars that resembled the architectural style of Tahiti. Finally, they mysteriously disappeared in the northernmost part of the Hawaiian Islands.
The mythology of the Samoan Islands on the edge of the Polynesian island also says that some ancient inhabitants were “indigenous people born from maggots born in grapevines” (referring to primitive indigenous people who eat maggots). The ancestors of the Samoans came to Samoa in the 5th century AD, and archaeology has shown that people were inhabited there as early as the 2nd century BC.
The legendary “long-eared man”
The myths and legends of Easter Island do not mention what the indigenous people were like before Hodo Madoa came, but the small statue of Maoai Kawakawa on the island may show people the early days of Easter Island The appearance of the residents. Mao Ayi Kawakawa is a male wooden figurine, only 30 cm tall. The figure on the statue is thin, with protruding ribs, sunken abdomen, long ears, and a goatee. In museums in some countries, these small statues made of smooth, hard, gleaming tolomilo wood are still preserved.
Who sculpted these statuettes? What does it represent? People are arguing about it. Some people believe that it represents the earliest residents who arrived at Easter Island after a long and difficult sea voyage, but the people of Easter Island opposed it because the island’s myth said that the bodies of the first migrants were very Be strong, and bring enough food. It is also believed that these wooden statues are wooden puppet toys and memorial statues carved for the dead. The thin faces and enlarged thyroid glands of the figures on the statues indicate that they are suffering from endocrine disorders. Their noses, bared teeth and abnormal spine bones indicate that they have been exposed to some kind of intense light.
In addition to the Mao Ayi Kawakawa statuette, there are many other statuettes on the island. There is a small female figurine called Mao Ayi Paapaa, which resembles a male figurine and has a small goatee. In addition, there are small statues with two heads—Maoayi Alysca and Tangata Manu with human bird heads, as well as small statues of fish, birds and many other animals.
These unique wooden statues are found in almost every resident’s home on the island. It is clear that they are idols worshipped by people. Eren Aiello, the first Western missionary to come to Easter Island, said: “Sometimes we see them lifting the statuettes in the air and making various gestures; at the same time they dance and sing some meaningless Song. I think they don’t understand the real meaning of doing this. They are just mechanically repeating everything they saw from their parents. If you ask them what they are doing, they will tell You say, this is their habit.”
We can see from the large statue that the early residents of the island had a pair of long big ears. Many legends on the island talk about the “long-eared man” Hanau Yeyebi and the “short-eared man” Hanau Momoko, and the “long-eared man” carved huge Ahu and stone statues. The war between the long-eared man and the short-eared man, and the scene of the long-eared man dying in the trench. In the middle of this century, Haierdar saw the leader, Peter Atan, who had the same skin color as a European, and he was the only descendant of the “long-eared man” who survived.
When did the “long-eared man” come to Easter Island? Legends have different opinions on this. Some said they came earlier than Hodo Madoa; some said they came together; some said they came later than Hodo Madoa. But anyway, they carved the stone statue and Ahu.
A researcher once had the privilege of witnessing a fierce debate between scientists and Easter Islanders. Kilimozzi, a famous traveler who knows the past and past of Easter Island well, asserted that the new “long-eared man” came with Hodo Madoa, but others objected, saying that they were not with Hodo. Do Madoa came together, but later came with a leader named Tuuko Yihuo. An Easter Island woman present at the time said to the researcher: “Don’t believe them, they don’t understand anything!”
So, who is the “long-eared man”? Easter Islanders have always had the habit of lengthening their ears. Admiral Rogovin’s companion, Berenst, saw, “Some islanders’ earlobes dragged to their shoulders, and some people had special earrings hanging on their earlobes—white round pie-shaped ears. Decorated”. The Melanesians who are thousands of kilometers away from Easter Island also have this custom. The gods joined by South America and India also have long earlobes, and the ancient residents of the Marquesas Islands have long ears.
Where did this habit of lengthening earlobes come from?
There is a 30-meter-high granite stone statue in Mysore, India-Gometeshwara. It was completed in 938 AD. It is bigger than the largest statue on Easter Island. Its earlobe drags all the way to the shoulder. A veritable “long-eared man”. The famous watercolor murals in southern India and the murals of Mahabalipuraro Temple and all the objects on the reliefs are also “long-eared people”, with various earrings hanging on the long big ears. In India, long ears are a characteristic of Buddha 2:-, all bodhisattva statues have long ears.
In India, not only Buddhas have long earlobes, but the gods are also “long-eared people.” On Elephant Island not far from Mumbai, there is a cave temple. The three great saints of India-Prashim, Vishnu and Shit also have long ears. A large number of avatars, teachers in Buddhism, saints and figures in the church, even the evil spirits, have long ears. Various tribes in Southeast Asia also have the habit of lengthening their earlobes. It is possible that the ancestors of Polynesia and Easter Island migrated from India. But this is just a bold assumption.
This strange creature first appeared in 1955. A man drove by a river flowing through the small town of Loveland, Ohio, at about 3 in the morning. He vaguely saw the roadside in the distance. There were three figures. After getting closer, he could see the three “people” clearly with the help of the light-none of them were dressed, about 1 meter tall, with the head of a frog, but the torso looked like a human. They have no hair all over, their skin looks smooth, and the texture is a bit leathery. The hind legs are erect, but the hands and feet are actually webbed! The man was so frightened by the three monsters that he hurriedly drove away from the scene. Since then, there have been several similar sightings. The witnesses all saw monsters that looked like humans and frogs. People call this strange animal “Loveland Frogman”.
The most famous sighting occurred one late night in March 1972. At that time, the police officer of Loveland Police Department Ray Shawkey drove along the river patrol. Suddenly an animal that looked like a frog and a human passed by in front of his car. Due to the attraction of the car lights, the animal turned back and Shawkey looked at each other briefly, then jumped into the river. Later, Xiaoji’s colleagues went to the scene to investigate. It is said that they found scratches on their paws on the guardrail. However, no photos were left during the investigation, and no other evidence was found. What’s more bizarre is that two weeks later, a colleague of Shaoki also saw a similar animal by the river. After finding someone, the animal also jumped into the river.
So, does Loveland frogman really exist? What is their true identity?
Animals that look like frogs and humans are indeed incredible. Given that Loveland frogmen have a frog’s head, webbed palms and feet, and hairless and smooth body, is it possible that they are amphibians like frogs?
Although some of the appearance features of the Loveland Frogman are similar to those of amphibians, it also has the characteristics of non-amphibians-it has a human torso and can look back. But after a long period of evolution, the vertebral joints of amphibians have been completely rigid, so they cannot turn their heads. In addition, the ribs of amphibians are usually very short, almost fused to the vertebrae, so their bodies will look more obvious inverted triangles, rather than almost the same width up and down like human torso. So it can be speculated that Loveland frogman is unlikely to be an amphibian.
Could it be said that Loveland frogman is a new species?
If we pay attention to the newly discovered species announced every year, we will find that most of the newly discovered species can be found similar in known species. For example, the new species Klingon salamander announced in 2016, although it is a kind New species, but they are basically not much different from known species in terms of appearance or living habits, because they have a common ancestor. However, we cannot find any animal similar to Loveland frogman in the known animals. From an evolutionary perspective, it takes a long time to evolve to the state of Loveland frogman. In their evolution, they cannot be completely independent of other species and evolve to their present state alone.
If there is such a new species, we can see if Loveland frogman can exist as a species. For a species to survive, they must have a certain number of scales, so as to ensure that the species reproduce, otherwise they will inevitably have to breed in close relatives and go extinct. And if there is a new species of Loveland frogman, then they must have gone through a long time of evolution in the world before they become what they are now, which shows that their number should be relatively large.
In fact, are there really enough of them? No one knows the exact number of them, but we can speculate. First of all, the earliest sightings of Loveland frogmen occurred in 1955. In the following decades, there were successive sightings, but the total number of sightings was not too much. Moreover, according to the sighting report, Loveland frogmen only appeared near the river more than 100 kilometers in the small town of Loveland. In such a small area, the number of times discovered by humans is so small, probably because they are not many.
Some people may have a whim: Could Loveland frogmen be a hybrid between frogs that escaped from a laboratory and humans? From a technical point of view, with the current genetic technology, it is not possible to create animals that resemble frogs and humans, let alone in 1955. From the perspective of natural hybridization, this is even more impossible, because the animals that can be naturally hybridized are at least animals of the same genus or family, for example, the donkey and the horse that give birth to mules belong to the genus Equus. But frogs belong to the frog family, and humans belong to the human family. It is impossible for the two to cross.
Taking all of these together, it can be speculated that the Loveland frogman is probably just a legend.
Who is Loveland Frogman?
To understand the mystery of Loveland’s frogman, some researchers have done investigations. According to the description of the witness report, coupled with the analysis of the surrounding environment. Researchers have put forward some speculations about the identity of the Loveland frogman. They believe that the witnesses may have seen a North American coyote or dog with mange. Animal mange is a potentially fatal skin disease that can cause animal body hair loss and skin shrinkage. Coyotes and dogs suffering from mange have hair loss and scabs on their skin. In dim light, the skin looks like leather or scales. Their faces are very thin because they have no hair, and they look a bit like enlarged frog faces. This may make people mistaken for some strange animal.
In addition, some witness reports mentioned that the mysterious animal could stand upright. This is probably because the coyote briefly lifted its front foot, and the coyote was exactly 1 meter in length, which was basically consistent with the description of the witness.
So, is Loveland Frogman really a coyote? Maybe it’s not that simple, because there are still some questions that can’t be explained. For example, if they are really coyotes, why don’t they escape from the land, and go to great lengths to jump over the fence and jump into the river? Perhaps there are other answers to the Loveland frogman mystery waiting for people to discover.
