So it seems the mystery creature is not a cryptid at all. It was either an introduced species (cat), or an escaped/released species (monkey).

It's obviously a hyrax imitating some monkey-cat creature.

It's of my expert opinion that this creature, is not a cat or even a monkey but, happens to be none othern than a Sasquatch.

Well I was going to say a cat, or pushing the boat out a little a small monkey (general gait is about right) but it's pretty much already been proved as such.


Oh wait, I just DID.

NW, hmmm. Witnesses say a monkey? Well, I have cat stuck on the brain and didn't see monkeys under Australia animals when I searched, so never even thought of that.

However, I had noticed in the OP, something a tad odd about the stance, body posture of the animal for a cat, but dismissed it.

But, for me, it is all about the blurry photo. Which almost always tells me somebody's monkeying around.

This monkey reminded me of when my parents went to Hawaii in the seventies and ended up talking with the "Monkees" at the airport bar. They got a picture of two of them, Peter and Micky. Guess what? It was blurry! While I believed my parents 100%, I couldn't use the photo to prove the event to my friends or show off. And for a teen 70's girl that was a real bummer. lol

They're not native to Australia no, but that doesn't mean you willnae find 'em ;) For example there have been wallabies hopping around the Scottish countryside in one particular county. Why? Well let's just say that there was an Aussie resturaunt that had some adventurous pets :)

A monkey huh? I think you are right, only because the people on the bus who IDed it knew what it was immediately, it never needed to be identified. What it was, was never really in doubt by the local authorities.

Looking at the picture again, I'm surprised no one noticed that the shadow looks like it is of a liquor bottle.

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.

Perhaps the witnesses, too, saw something odd/ambiguous about stance/posture/gait of the cat that made them think "not cat" and then perceived it to be a "monkey". It is similar to the recent "Essex Lion" case which resulted in an intensive police search when 6 people saw a house cat across a field but perceived it to be a lion or some lion-sized cat. What is triggering that response?

Could cases like the "Darwin Monkey" and "Essex Lion", in which the objective evidence is at odds with the subjective evidence, account for other alleged sightings of cryptids and out-of-place-animals in which there is no objective evidence?

Are such misperceptions more common than they are usually considered to be?

As we are continually taught from a young age to trust our senses, could our (misplaced) confidence in our own perceptions and experiences contribute to the discrepancies between what we perceive/experience and what is actually there?

After all, when it comes to cryptids and out-of-place-animals, many witnesses are certain they know what they saw and that alone can be very compelling...
