Hi ealdwita. Thanks for the extra info, very interesting. The 'sun bear' proposal would have been considered by all the experts and locals alike. People aren't stupid. They would have been filmed and seen with more clarity if it was just sun bears, surely?

Hi Tailorman. The sun bear has been considered of course, but taking into account that cannabis is a local cash crop and is smoked or chewed by most jungle people above the age of seven, there's no telling what's been seen!

Another interesting cryptid story I have encountered is the Ngoloko, or Nandi Bear. This time in Kenya, but that's another story.

So Tailor, you obviously are not stupid with that sort of degree and past employment, yet you can see things like helicopter shadows and say they are some sort of physical being? (as per a previous post)
I find this a little hard to believe. Maybe your obsession with these alleged creatures has got the better of you and you are no longer thinking scientifically. :mellow:

I would tend to agree with you Vitruvian, but if one has held a position for 8 years doing scientific research, one would expect the methodology of that type of research to rub off in other areas, which does not appear to be the case :)

The Nandi Bear is one crypto that actually might be a hyrax. Hyrax used to be all over Europe, Asia and Africa, with large bear/cow sized ones roaming the savannas. That was before ungulates started taking over however... millions of years ago.

Here at Intel we make processors on 12 inch wafers. And, the individual processors on the wafers are called die. And, I am employed to check these die. That is why I am the DieChecker.

It's the old english form of 'were-wolf' or 'were-boar'. It's a good name imo and describes an animal species which mimics another openly aggressive animal species in the local habitat. The were-animal itself is therefore a master of passive aggression. The males only need to mimick a male of an openly aggressive species to be able to ward of transgressors from their territory and still remain elusive and 'unknown'. The females would use sexual selection based on how effective they thought the male disguise was. This way a speedy evolutionary avenue is open for something which to us seems extra-ordinary.

The last 50,000 years would have led to a were-creature/human co-evolution which has ended with today's working equilibrium, Super-predatory humans

But you do realize that "Were" is an Anglo Saxon word for "man", right? It has nothing to do with any open displays of aggressiveness.

Bad machine.

In which case the caterpillar that mimics a snake is a were-caterpillar.

Yes, the nandi bear is a favourite of Dr karl Shuker. It's yet another case of the same species as the orang pendek imo. It would make it a were-bear! I don't think you can attribute all of the world sightings of such critters to wacky-backy. The hair evidence and forthcoming DNA evidence will dispell that kind of myth once and for all hopefully. Only a couple of months to wait and the whole world will be spellbound by the discovery of a new intelligent species.

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.
