Now, I'm not talking about the movie with those little puppets. I'm talking about the giant, predatory eagle-like creature about the size of a small plane.

They are taken very seriously in the field of Cryptozoology, as they match the description of teratorns, a type of giant flying bird, now (presumably) extinct.

There have also been sightings of giant owls, but they are usually considered to be separate creatures from Thunderbirds, and other eyewitness accounts describe them to be bird-like, but with no obvious feathers like a bat or a pterosaur.

French cryptozoologist Micheal Raynal says, "This picture is very impressive, indeed, but it might be an optical illusion."

Here is another one:

Dr Kenneth E. Campbell is pictured here standing in front of a specimen of (now extinct) Argentavis Magnificans.

Personally, I don't think it looks really convincing, but it is on display at the Natural History Museum in Los Angeles.

Are Thunderbirds soaring through the sky as we speak?

Sky Serpents

Sky serpents are UFOs that have been sighted very often in the 20th and 21st century.

They are considered to be phantoms as there isn't really any physical way they could exist. After all, what living creature could look like a snake but manage to float around independently?

These creatures are studied more often in Parapsychology (study of the paranormal) than in Cryptozoology. However, these two studies are loosely connected, so I'm including them in this blog.

Other explanations include that they are really alien crafts designed to (unsuccessfully) desguise themselves, or that they are oriental dragons. Other than this cryptozoologists aren't very interested in them.

The sightings people come up with are actually quite stunning though.

Ghost or dragon?

Mokele Mbembe

The Mokele Mbembe is a sauropod - like dinosaur which is thought to be extinct.
African folklore describes it as a herbivorous animal the size of an elephant.

In Congo the Japanese recorded of what may be footage of this 'dinosaur'.
