Fortean Zoology

Show Archive
Date: Tuesday - February 24, 2004
Host: George Noory
Guests: Jonathan Downes, Richard Freeman, James McCanney

Jonathan Downes and Richard Freeman of The Centre for Fortean Zoology, discussed various cryptozoological creatures such as the Chupacabra, and the Loch Ness Monster. New animals are being discovered all the time, said Downes, who offered his theory about Nessie. It's a "giant eel" that had become sterile, and thus grew to an unusually large size, he said.

Downes said he spent time investigating tales of the Chupacabra in Puerto Rico and Mexico. The creature, whose name translates as "the goat sucker," is thought to be 4-5 ft. tall, have spines along its back and be grayish blue or grayish brown in color, he said. Its head has elements that resemble that of a kangaroo, a praying mantis, and an alien grey, Downes detailed, as he described cases where the creature attacked domestic livestock, leaving the animals drained of blood and often removing their livers.

Richard Freeman believes that the mythology of the dragon is, in fact, based on a real creature. He noted that every culture has a legend about such a creature, going as far back as 25,000 years ago. He theorized that dragons may have been able to fly or float in the air, because of the large amount of gas they contained. Freeman also discussed his planned investigation into the "Mongolian Death Worm," a meter long, reptilian-like creature, that was said to be bright red and able to kill its prey by spitting a "yellow corrosive substance."

Comet Update

First hour guest, maverick physicist James McCanney commented on 2 new comets that will be prominent in the skies this May. There could be possible "electrical sunward spikes" from the comets, said McCanney, who believes we are in a time when the "solar system is becoming more active."

While he doesn't care to predict a date when a massive "Planet X" type body would become visible, he suggested its arrival would be accompanied by a set of additional objects such that it would be akin to "having another solar system moving into our solar system."
