HA! I noticed that the "Honey Island Swamp Monster" made it onto that site... and you can say that you've been to Honey Island Swamp! :applause:

 

(I didn't see a monster, though...)

 

Ha! That big ass alligator jumping out of the water to eat a small marshmallow seemed like a damn monster to me LOL!

great site! I live not too far from the Piasa engraving. The Thunderbird also appears in thie mississippi river area's tales. I didn't see MoMo listed though (Missouri Monster) but it was very much like the Murphysboro Mud monster in description in the stories I heard as a kid. There was a ride at Six Flags Mid-America (St.Louis) called the MOMO after the monster of local legend.

What a great link.... a friend of mine once had a run-in with 'Spring Heeled Jack' in Boscastle, Cornwall... she absolutely freaked and ran off to her car, closely followed by her husband. Apparently, he just sprang out of the side of a cemetary wall and stood in front of her. I still get the giggles thinking about the two of them, shrieking and hotfooting it to their car...:D

Hi AnjelWolf, the bunyip is a mythical Australian animal. No-one knows what they look like, but by all accounts they are supposed to be quite fierce. They live in/near billabongs (water holes) and its said the local Aboriginal people won't go near the place if they know a bunyip's about. You can see more here: http://www.nla.gov.au/exhibitions/bunyips/html-site/imagination/20th.html http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bunyip

Hi Ds :)

 

Thanks for the link :) I think there might be something in one of my books about this creature as well.

 

I'll post it if I can locate it :)
