First off, I'd like to know which image goes with which critter.
Also, I don't think anofthecreatures have benpossitively identified as belonging to the same family as the ancient marine reptiles. Nitpicking I know, but there was a difference between dinosaurs and the marine reptiles.
Do you have any more info on the second picture? It seems odd, and if there was any serious study done on it, I'd like to know. To me, it looks like something deformed, not like a purposeful living creature.

It is a higher chance that Sea Monsters would still be around today than any real massive dinosaurs. There are the legends of the gallimimous (I didnt spell that right
) that still run about in a desert in the states (Yet again my memory has failed me again).

Great job finding those pics!

Well I have only heard of Mokele Mbembe and Thunderbirds and believe them to be true, but that's purely on the basis of the evidence I have seen and heard.

Never seen those photos before, but there were a few of Mokele Mbembe
that were taken that I never saw.

I would like to say I think those photos are real but I'm not 100% convinced of it.

I KNOW that there are some creatures in the way deep that used to roam to seas in the jurassic and cretacious (sp?) periods.

Not only have dinosaurs lived on but a few ice age creaures have survuved extinction. An example is the moa of New Zealand. Cryptozoologists are almost certain it has suvived along with a giant sloth in Brazil (i think) somewhere.

Nice post , nice pics.
The Tuatara from New Zealand was (apparently) roaming the earth with the dinasoars. One of the males who is about 98 recently got it on with a female after about a 20 year celibate patch, so fingers crossed we may have a new arrival!


edit to add some more stuff.

i have nothing new about those cryptid but i can at leat let you know what i'm thinking about them,

The kasai rex have prove as hoax if i remember correctly, mokole/caddy/oggopogo/etc... could be very real as there is still a lot of species, little or huge, to discover, i know they found a carcass in a whale stomach of a juvenille caddy few decades ago and lot of witnesses described a serpent like in a lot of lake, sea.
The thunderbirds is not a pterodactyle, he looks more to a big eagle or falcon with red colour, the pterodactyl, if still alive, is called ropen, there is various name for it.

For all others cryptids i recommend you to go on this website, ATS is great website but the cz part sux a bit.

Now the pictures, the first one have been shot by a bbc(?) 'journalist', i can't remember his name, they were on a boat in amazonia and they spotted this creature in the river, i think he said it was a kind of dolphins, he came back there about few times later to try to find it again but he never had that chance.
The second pictures have been prove as an purpoise embryon and the third photo... i can't see it, but is this the one where we see the neck and the head in? if yes, sorry but i think it have been proven fake.

I hope it will help you.

Look for more surviving reptilians in the history of races and civilizations, you'll probably find something resembling a report describing a beast.

A Pterodactyl was not a dinosaur, so its impossible to classify as a "living dinosaur", even if it was alive today....

Hey there 'Jakey',

Sorry I can't add any extra info or new additions ... just wanted to say 'good thread'.

I don't know if there was any extra info on the sites about the picture origins ... but when I saw the 3rd one it reminded me of a 'still' from an old movie my kids used to watch when they were younger (late 80's maybe ???) Not totally certain of the film title but it was about a baby dino found in the jungle by some researcher's (or something like that)!

The film may have been called 'BABY' but not 100% on that. Someone else here may know what I'm talking about ... not sure I do.

(On topic); I've always thought we would be rather naive to think there were no surprises waiting to be discovered in remote desert / jungle / sea locations. So I'm pretty sure some of the pics that turn-up are the real deal ... just need that extra inch to convince the naysayers ... you know the kind of thing ... lead a dino / alien etc up the main street for all to see.

A while back (must be nearly 3 years) I remember watching a show on tv that had video footage and analysis of stuff like Bigfoot, sea monsters and other cryptids and mysterys and there was one bit of video footage that was supposedly meant to be of a tyranosaurus type creature in I think it was Australia walking past a few huts. I remember it looking kinda fake in my opinion with how it moved but it was still pretty interesting.

I really cant for the life of me remember anything else about it, whether the experts decided it was a hoax or what. Ive searched for the footage on youtube but found nothing so if anybody knows where I can watch the footage id be really grateful.

It was called "Baby: Secret of the Lost legend."

I wonder if society could adapt with dinosaurs without hurting them and putting them in some form of wildlife conservation
