Blue Whales and Giant squids are massive animals. Do they need that much oxygen? Also, i heard about some reports of giant spiders in Amazonia. They are described as a huge Tarantula with the size of a large dog. The natives from the regino fears the animal and also stated that the Spider atacks frequently their chickens and as well dogs.

i saw a documentary about this yrs ago. was interesting until they showed some of the witnesses a picture of a rhino and the witnesses said that was what they had seen.
"Mokele-Mbembe" is a generic, loose term used to describe most African cryptids, and many spiritual fictional beings that have nothing to do with the actual dinosaur. When natives admitted to a rhino being Mokele-Mbembe, they were referring to EMela-ntouka, which is a new species of rhino.

i hope he doesn't find it. i've read the reports about this thing, and the huge spiders. they seem to be credible, but if they're ever found, i know some people would tear the whole forest apart to capture them and study them/put them in zoos.
