Ora Blue and Charley Wilson showing reporters the approximate size of the turtle. 

In July 1948, two men, Ora Blue and Charley Wilson, claimed to see a giant turtle (weighing an estimated 500 pounds) while fishing on Fulk Lake in

Churubusco, Indiana. 

When word of the sighting got around town, older locals recalled how in 1898, a farmer reported seeing the same thing in the same lake and was ridiculed by friends for his claim. The man who owned the lake, Gale Harris backed up the others claims, saying he had seen the turtle as well. 

Local news picked up the story and a UPI reporter from Fort Wayne relayed the reports out on the wire services, causing the turtle to become a national sensation. 

The Beast of Busco as it was dubbed by the media, attracted mobs of

sightseers to the lake but despite so many curious onlookers there was no further reports of the massive turtle, causing skeptics to question the authenticity of the earlier sightings. To vindicate his good name, Gale

Harris made several attempts to catch the beast. These included having fisherman drudge the lake from end to end several times and eventually escalated to Harris having deep-sea divers search the pond, though this attempt failed when the wrong equipment was delivered to Harris.

Finally Harris decided to drain the lake entirely, by pumping the water into an area sealed off by a dam with the help of Orville Bright and Kenneth Leitch. When the lake was nearly entirely drained the dam suddenly broke and released all of the water back into the

seven-acre

pond. The creature was never captured.

The Giant Dragonfish-

The Giant Dragonfish has only been sighted once by a William Beebe in a bathysphere, of the coast of Bermuda in 1932. It practically looks like a giant version of a deep sea Dragonfish. The average size for a Dragonfish is 6.2 inches, but biggest officially found was 15 inches. The Giant Dragonfish was apparently at least 6ft long. 

It had been described of having pale-blue lights on it’s side and 2 vertical tendril’s each tipped with a light. It’s head was also said to be bit bigger than an average Dragonfish in proportioned to it’s body. 

There isn’t much information about this creature but William Beebe has wrote down in finding of his voyage underwater in his book titled, ‘Half Mile Down’.

Yes! I’ve finally gotten around to another post! And this one is a gem! It’s generally referred to as the 1997 “Bloop”. This sound was captured by the NOAA (U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) when they were attempting to capture whale calls for scientific research. The sound itself is likened to the sound of a stone being dropped into a pond, unusual in itself. It couldn’t have been a mistake: after all, the machinery was built to liken those used by the US Military, and was state of the art.

Scientists were puzzled as to the source of the Bloop. It sounded like an animal, and the pattern of frequency is similar to that of other recorded marine beasts. The unusual thing about this sound, however, is that the “Bloop” was recorded on sensors 4800 kilometers apart (which throws out the possibility of microphone malfunction), impossible for even the loudest known creature, the blue whale. Therefore the sheer size of this animal must exceed that of any whale known.

They have pinpointed the sound to be next to South America, at the southern most tip in the Pacific Ocean. Scientists can’t seem to agree if it was an icequake, which seems to be the popular theory, or animal in origin. This sound is unexplained still, since it has not been detected since, and is one of six unexplained sounds. While Bloop is the most famous, the other unexplained sounds are called “Upsweep”, “Slowdown”, “Train”, “Julia”, and “Whistle”.

Of course, with the mystery surrounding these sounds, stories have arisen. Especially concerning Bloop. Many think that the sound could have originated from known cryptids such as Cthulhu, the Cloverfield Monster, or even a Lochness type creature. One thing is definitely known: this sound could not have come from any man made equipment because all those possibilities have already been exhausted. So what was it? Here is the ever-famous Bloop for you to listen to and decide the origins yourself.

This is the real-time recording.

And here it is sped up by 16x, the first official release of the sound was at this speed, and why it was dubbed the “Bloop”.

In 1997, several campers staying at Lundar Beach campground in Manitoba, Canada, claimed to have seen something very strange in the waters of the lake. The strange object was seen hundreds of yards off the shore of Lake Manitoba. Campers that were witness to it claimed that it looked like a large reptile’s head and they were quickly told to evacuate the waters of the lake. However, the reptile didn’t show itself again and the encounter was brushed off as a floating log instead of Manipogo, the lake’s mysterious monster.

In 2005, Lake County Judge

Jim Manley and his wife Julia claimed to have had a run in with the Flathead Lake Monster. Their boat’s battery had unfortunately died while they were out enjoying a day on the lake. While waiting for someone to come pick them up, they heard loud splashing in the water around them. They described what they had seen as having humps along its back that rose from the water’s surface.
