I do believe the exist/existed as a large land based croc or a large carnivorous marsupial. Both have existed in the past and Aboriginal stories tell the truth from many many generations ago when these things stalked the earth.

There may be small pockets of these creatures left or just some stories of things that were there awhile ago.

After being to Australia and staying in several remote farm steds (not sure if that is the correct term) with small groups of mostly isolated people (nearest store 80KM away) then I can understand that you get worried with the noises the night makes! I heard stuff bigger then a horse smashing its way through the jungle some nights! And occasionally a deep rhythmic beating noise! It would scare me and the people I was working for, on one of the farms they had me clear all the undergrowth and small trees out for nearly half a mile away in all directions from the house.

If you have never seen such massive areas of unexplored subtropical or tropical rain forest then you will understand there could be a whole lot of big stuff living there that we have no idea about.


LOL :D Bet the big creature crashing through was a roo or a cow. It might have even been a horse. I would say the deep rhythmic beating was frogs. They get quite a sound up when they manage to get into unison. Did you hear Koalas mating? That sound will send chills down your spine :D Funny how such a big scary sound comes from such a cute cuddly looking little thing.

Even small animals can sound big and intimidating in the bush:

I had an interesting experience after bushwalking in this area. While experimenting with some night time photos from the lookout on a very still night I heard something in the distance crashing its way up the gully behind me. The amount of noise it made (which gave the impression of being quite large) and the speed with which made its way through some very thick bush with branches snapping etc seemed odd. It wasn't an ungulate/ hoofed creature due to the thumping nature of some of the footfalls, nor was there anything about it which sounded obviously hopping/macropod. It was quite a long way in the distance but quickly made ground only to stop in the gully directly behind me. While something else made its way to the edge of the tree line directly to my left, then stopped. Some strange “moook moook”calls that eerily sounded like a deep human like voice then came from this area. I have read where these are associated with Yowies, though not sure I believe it, I can see how reports have been claimed from this area.

Eventually I found it was a Wallaby that had been crashing up the gully. The terrain and type of bush seem to cause these creatures to act and sound different than you might expect. As graceful as they can be in more open areas, it must be difficult navigating rainforest with large macro-pod feet. I also found Tawny Frogmouth and large Powerful Owls inhabit the area. One Owl shot out from the entrance to the track one night, almost bowling me over, which accounts for the strange calls. The other noises could have been anything from deer or goats, to wallaby.

Does the yowie hide a tail? Has anyone ever heard of a sighting with a tail by any chance? The Dartmoor beast is seen with a lion-tail when running on all fours. Is the yowie tail-less, indicating a skunk ape origin instead? After reading this excellent site, I think the yowie is an ape-man-type and not the dogman-type. The bunyip must have a hairy male counterpart presumably.

The object, known by the locals as "Bicho Voador" (Flying Animal), or "Bicho Sugador" (Sucking Animal), has the shape of a rounded ship and attacks people in isolation.

No, but sounds very likely. I've heard similar from Serbian/Croatian(?) soldiers in the Balkans who witnessed 'werewolves' in a gunfire shoot-out rip into opposition soldiers. The man said that a 'female' locked gaze and started rushing towards him!

Yeah I remember reading reports about what they called 'rock apes', I think they would apparently attack camps at night by throwing rocks.

So this is more evidence of a hairy ape man type cryptid then. Why are there so many disbelievers on this site??

Someone remembering reading something doesnt count towards being evidence.  Except in your version of science.

Started in Sydney and worked my way up to Cairns on various farmsteads. The strange noises of the 'monster' were near Coffs Harbour. Also got half scared to death one night when a 'huge angry crytid' jumped on the roof of the old caravan I was staying in. I could hear it trying to claw its way in through the roof! I had a small, old mag-light with low battery power in one hand and a pen knife in my other as my only defence. Can honestly say it was one of the scariest nights of my life. By early morning it had gone so I decided to make a run for it to the farm house of the family I was working for. I must have looked shook up and was tired from no sleep. When I explained what had happened they all laughed really hard and explained what possums were to me...  :blush:

Well it's not real evidence, just the recollection of a few soldiers in a stressed state in an unfamiliar land.  They may well have been gibbons or another known species.

Here's a couple of links.

I have a solution for the twice size spider monkey finds. The Lachamps geomagnetic excursion of 40kya was caused by a dark matter comet impact on the south coast of Australia, creating the Nullarbor plain. The energy of the dark matter impact was enough to disrupt the mantle flow and therefore the Earth's magnetic field. This collapse of the geomagnetic field, evidenced by a spike in beryllium-10 in ice core data, would have let cosmic radiation erode the ozone layer. This would then have led to Earth's surface being awash with intense solar radiation.

The comet impact also had the energy to lift the entire lithosphere, creating a landbridge stretching from S.E. Asia, arcing across the Pacific and reaching Mexico. This allowed species to cross from one continent to another and would explain the 40,000 year old human footprints discovered by Professor Gonzalez. Cryptids from Central America could have made it in the opposite direction and found Australia!

That sounds like an awesome trip, I think you got to see some of the best of Oz by the sound of it. I am halfway along your travel route, on the Gold Coast, Surfers Paradise.

That is hilarious, I was reading your post thinking, "That's a possum" then I read your last line. Made me smile. Wait till you hear those Koala calls - spine tingling! - LINK

The Nullabor Plain is the world's largest single piece of limestone. It is an ancient seabed, and this is proven by the large number of fossils that have been found there. The Mullamullang features are separated from the rest of the plain by 5 million years, there are in fact 5 separately dated formations that make up the Nullabor, making it a gradual formation over millions of years, not one event.

Dark matter comets? Really? Are you sure it was not some sort of anti matter Hyrax? :rolleyes:
