Top 10 Mysterious Monsters Of Today

1 2

Given the rich folklore and ancient mythology, I believe it is safe to assume that mankind has always been fascinated with monsters. Interestingly enough, even though most people nowadays perceive those creatures as pure fiction, it is necessary to mention that their existence was undisputed until two centuries ago.

However, not everyone accepts the unrealism of frightful and mysterious creatures. While the modern creatures are not as fascinating as those of the past, some people strongly believe in their existence, particularly after being witnesses to various inexplicable circumstances. Whether they are real or not one thing is for sure: their anonymity will always hunt us. Let’s meet nowadays’ puzzling creatures in our top 10 list.


1. Loch Ness Monster

Nessie is perhaps one of the most renowned lake monsters to elude scientists. Despite the advanced scanning technology, numerous eyewitnesses and even some pictures, the Loch Ness Monster is pretty hard to find. While the place is literarily crawling with tourists who are trying to catch a glimpse of Nessie, very few of them were lucky enough to see the monster stretch its neck high above the water and look around. On a side note, there have been numerous reports of similar aquatic creatures around the globe and Nessie is just the most famous one.


2. Bigfoot

Even though nobody knows for certain what they really are or even if they exist, one thing is for sure: they supposedly leave large footprints behind. Unlike Nessie, Bigfoot was filmed while it was casually taking a walk in the forest in 1967. However, the authenticity of the film is still contested and rumors have it that the filmmakers have even admitted that their short film of Bigfoot is a hoax. Whether the 1967 footage was genuine or not, it is necessary to mention that Bigfoot sighting have been reported in isolated highlands and mountains across the globe.


3. Chupacabra

The Chupacabra or the “goat sucker” is a monster that enjoys ravaging the livestock of farmers from Central and South America. Unlike Nessie and Bigfoot, there is practically no footage with it and the eyewitnesses descriptions vary a lot. The only thing you can say for certain about the Chupacabra is that it has scary red eyes and it leaves a trail of dead animals behind. As a side note, the hype around this creature has drawn the attention of various conspiracy theorists who claim Chupacabra is a terrible result of secret experiments.


4. Mothman

What is fascinating about the Mothman is that his numerous appearances coincide with an unusual number of UFO reports in 1966 in West Virginia. While no more sightings have been reported nowadays, back then there were hundred of people claiming they saw a winged humanoid creature that had a peculiar ability of channeling information from the individuals it got into contact with.


5. Wendigo

Described in the Algonquian’s people legends, the Wendigo represents one of the most fearful creatures believed to exist even today. If you were to check out the mythology of various tribes from the Northern part of the US and Canada, you will notice the physical descriptions of the creature are very distinct. Moreover, there are no eyewitnesses or footage proving its existence. However, that is the last thing you want to do, considering the Wendigo is a cannibalistic, malevolent, supernatural creature that can control a human’s mind as well as eat it.
