Some of the most interesting tales of cryptids and “man-beasts” can be found in the archives of old newspapers from 1800’s.
Like this delightful little tale from Capay, California, published in 1891. It never uses the term “Bigfoot”, but rather, calls its hairy two-legged protagonist a “Throw-back”, “Prehistoric Terror” or a favorite – the “What-Is-It?”
Join Author M.L. Behrman as he relates the strange tale of the “Capay Curiosity” in this latest episode of Mojave Mysteries on YouTube.
Everybody has an opinion about spiders, right? Some love ’em, some hate ’em and some just run at the thought of finding an eight-legged visitor in their home …or, shudder, bed?
How about a spider big enough to take down a man? Could such a thing exist? And if so, where in the world would such a monster call home?
How about the Mojave Desert?
At least, that’s what one woman claimed, as well as many old newspaper accounts from the last two centuries. Intrigued? Then join Author M.L. Behrman in this latest episode of “Mojave Mysteries” and see what YOU think about what possibly could be the biggest spider in the world…
It’s a deliciously creepy little tale for anyone freaked out by spiders…
Most people and scientists believe currently the biggest spider in the world is either the Goliath spider of South America (also called the “bird eating spider) or the giant Huntsman spider of Australia – a couple of hairy crawling nightmares if ever there was one. But what about the huge spider reportedly seen in the Mojave Desert?
Even former military people have recounted seeing what surely would have to have been considered the biggest spider ever recorded out in the more remote and seldom visited parts of the desert.
It might even be the biggest spider in history! Now wouldn’t THAT be cool …er, or CREEPY!
