PORTLAND, Maine (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Bigfoot isn’t the only mystery monster people are spotting these days.

In fact, leading cryptozoologist Loren Coleman says there have been tons of new sightings of cryptids and creatures lately around the world.

That includes a six-foot relative of the Kimodo dragon, giant lizards, and a Siberian Snowman sighting in Russia.

Coleman says that monster, which is five-feet-tall, hairy, and ape-like, was reportedly saved by a human from drowning in a river.

But with every solid sighting, Coleman says there are also plenty of false alarms in cryptozoology, including seemingly strange carcasses that turn out to be dead dogs.

No matter what new creatures are discovered, though, Coleman says nothing can shake the public’s fascination with “celebrity cryptids” like Bigfoot, Nessie, Mothman, and the Chupacabra.

He runs the world’s only International Cryptozoology Museum out of Portland, Maine, entirely dedicated to the famous monsters and their peers.
