I was in the woods looking for my favourite cryptid and found a very large member of a closely related species so felt good, nice hike interesting fauna, promising prospects. On the path back I was three miles out in the woods when I encountered this... Can you tell what it is?
It's a classic blurry photo of some type of large animal ; ) Needless to say I was a bit worried, but everything ended OK. It was about 400-600 pounds, 6 feet long, 4 feet high.

It's black. Definitely black.

A boar?

Is that a black bear? It looks like one.

What cryptid were you searching for?
Since this critter is closely related.

6 feet long? Maybe a bear?

I'd say, in all likelihood, that's a bear. You can see the light spot in the center of its face. Classic black bear.

As an example.

I see you can't get over on this crowd.
Yup, bear.
I saw a lot of wildlife that day.
but the bear was the only one that spooked me.
The bear was polite and let me pass.
He had been eating grubs out of a log on the path.
I had the sense earlier that something might be hunting me when I passed by earlier, so believing that you can communicate mentally with animals I just put the thought out I was not seeking to die that day or become dinner. The bear probably already knew I was there as it could smell my scent trail. Made a little noise to let it know I was there. Don't want to surprise a bear.

Not a bear was looking for something else.

Well, OP, I saw the humor in your post and appreciated it!


This is a tough crowd sometimes.

Hey, everybody! OP knew it was a bear and was trying to inject some much needed humor into ATS!

You get a star for going cryptid hunting!

Am I the only one that thinks it's Bigfoot?


When you say everything went ok, what did that mean? Did the bear start charging at you?

It has some kind of yellow face. Black bear maybe?
