I just watched a video on locusts and it was amazing. I had no idea why locusts swarmed. I just knew that they did.
Turns out a locust is just a grasshopper that has been chemically changed. Due to proximity to other hoppers, plants, weather.

Check this out.

Why am I in the cryptozoology forum? Because this got me thinking. What if the animals we think are unique. The ones in this crypto category. Are in fact animals that we know of and see all the time but went through some rare change due to environment and chemicals? Just like the locust.

As you can see from the video the locust appearance has a drastic change. Perhaps bigfoot is a bear that ate some normal berry , but a berry that went through a super rare change. This change in turn changed the bear. Just for an example.

Discuss.

Locusts are insects I doubt a chemical could make a werewolf.

Then again what would?

Ah Huh see what I did there?

A gypsy's curse, or getting bitten by a werewolf.

Ever see the smallest woman in the world vs the tallest.
They look like two different species of human.

I think the same of people that live in polar opposite climates.

I forgot...another method is to drink rainwater from a paw print left by a werewolf. This method is pretty obscure. I don't remember which lore it comes from. Russian?

Look at the big brain on Cole!

Never heard that one before.

I know that the First Nations people believe if you sacrifice
a loved one and wore the wolfs skin. You can shapeshift into
skinwalker werewolf. What's weird is the number of reports of
people seeing "Dog men".

One of the most fascinating subjects in the "Skinwalker Ranch" story is the dogmen. I posted this thread a few years back. It's beyond bizarre!

I was thinking you read that book. I hunted that one down in 98 99
some where in that time frame. I went right thru it which is rare for me.

I believe grasshoppers molt and shed a shell as they transform into locusts so this form of transformation might require something like this.

I think the thing that makes this transformation so shocking is the speed. When you think about it humans and plenty of animals go through pretty drastic physical changes when exposed to the right conditions, we just don't consider them to be a different thing after it happens.

After decades of bad posture and diet the difference between a healthy and unhealthy person is probably as drastic as grasshopper to locust, even if you were comparing the same baseline person under different conditions (like if you had twins that were raised in very different places or something).
