Stories about mythical creatures are never lacking. According to common folklore, most have ridiculous characteristics and traits that can make it impossible to believe in their existence. The fact that we often have to prove they are genuine does not improve their situation. However, as we are about to find out, many of these supposed mythological creatures exist, and some still exist. Now, do you think that if we are there, we don't have photos? We do. It's just that we are mistaking them for another being.
Tales of Mermaids, a race of half-human and half-fish hybrids that live in the sea, is the story of an ordinary sailor. Surprisingly, many of the stories are truly genuine, albeit exaggerated. Mermaids are present. Christopher Columbus visited America three times during his first trip. He describes her as 'not as beautiful as she said she because she had some masculine features on her face.
Wait, man? But mermaids are almost always women, aren't they? Well, the creatures we call mermaids are males and their closest relatives, dating. Both animals are called hippos because of their large size. They are the largest aquatic grass in the world. Sailors mistake them for mermaids because of their unique human and fish characteristics. The adult hippo is about six feet long, which is about the height of an adult human. They have legs like five human fingers in slippers and can bend their necks and stand like humans in shallow water. Put on their fish stripes that sometimes jump out of the water and you have a mermaid.
The cracks are perhaps the scariest sea monster ever imagined. According to older sailors, it is a giant octopus-like creature that likes to sink ships and eat their crews. According to legend, the Kraken attacked ships and sank them with her powerful weapons. If unsuccessful, it begins to swim in circles until it forms a whirlpool that has sunk the ship. Yes, it is. The so-called Kraken is a giant squid, which is much larger (since 'giant' is already indicated in the name), but significantly smaller and less violent than the sailors. There are no reports that he has ever attacked or sunk a ship or that he is powerful enough to sink one. Crank went from folklore to reality when the remains of a giant squid were found in 1853 in Denmark. Interestingly, the giant squid was inspired as much by this legend as it is elusive. It lives in such deep waters that we have limited knowledge about it. However, we know that it has the largest eyes of all living things, grows up to 18 meters long, and is often hunted by potters for food. Weak giant squids often fly when whales find them. However, he sometimes fights back when he's on the corner and it's not uncommon for leftover pot fish whales to be found during their battle against the giant liquids.
Dragons are probably the most common mythical creatures. Their shapes differ, but the most common description indicates that they had reptilian bodies, bat wings, and sharp claws. If we do not forget, they also put out the fire with their mouths. Why do foxes have such diverse descriptions, and why do many unrelated cultures confirm their existence? This is because true dragons had different shapes and lived in different parts of the world. Long after they left, their remains became fossils, describing the natives found and what they looked like there. Some were big and some were not. Some have sharp claws, some have bat wings, and some may have reptilian bodies. However, no one was shot out of their mouths. However, we don't call them dragons, but dinosaurs. Yes, dinosaurs are the origin of the myth. Many cultures, especially in ancient China where dragon stories abound, invented them after finding dinosaur fossils.
Maori folklore tells of the existence of a giant flying bird that takes people away from the earth and consumes them. He calls the bird Pouakai, which in English means "old gluten." Like Frederick Richardson Fuller, a monologue in the Canterbury Museum, found later in 1871, this bird does exist. The hasty eagle, as it is now known, was the largest eagle to roam the earth. Only its wings reach three meters and its main prey was the large (and extinct) moa bird that weighs between 100 and 250 kg. Our humans lose a lot of weight, so birds can be our prey. Almost eagles and moa evolved independently of humans. This means that the eagle must have previously confused people for landing in Moa with New Zealand, as people were probably wearing clothing made of feathers. On the other hand, it is not noticeable at all and is only added to the menu.
If you think the eagle was deadly, worse. This is the eagle rabbit on steroids. If a man's eagle can raise a human, a raven will raise a community. No one said that was the case, but we are just trying to provide perspective. However, it is claimed that the ROC could lift a full-blown elephant from the ground. The older prisoners claimed that RCA lived on an island off the coast of Africa. It is believed to be aepyornis, also known as the elephant bird. It weighed half a ton and grew to 10 feet, making it the largest bird in history. Like the RCO, he lived on Madagascar, an island off the coast of Africa. Aepyornis, however, was unable to lift an elephant into the air because it could not fly. Madagascar also has no elephants and the bird, despite its large size, is much smaller than an elephant. Elephant birds existed at the time the roc rumours first appeared 900 years ago, but they became extinct in the 16th century. People chased him to mythical places to die.
The unicorn is a mythical horse with a horn in the middle of its head. are real? Yes, it was, but it wasn't what you thought. Unicorns were not horses, but rhinos, that is, if the extinct Siberian unicorn is the origin of the unicorn myth. As the unicorn may have been inspired, the Siberian unicorn had four legs and had a large horn in the middle of its head. In perspective, it weighed four tons. You don't want to be around that thing. The Siberian unicorn lived in Eurasia until it became extinct about 39,000 years ago. Fortunately, he was a vegetarian at the time and preferred to chew on the bushes. However, like rhinos today, it can be very aggressive towards unharmed people who have strayed too far.
Griffin is another hybrid mythological creature. According to myth, they have the face, wings and front legs of an eagle and the back of a lion, tail and hind legs. It also flew, turning him into a creature that would give early humans a wide margin if they existed. Speaking of existence, the gryphons did exist, but before humans appeared. They were a species of dinosaur called protoceratops. Like Griffin, Protocatrops walked on all fours and had beaks, but no wings. But at a time when people knew little about dinosaurs and only believed that birds sing, it's no wonder humans claim to have feathers. Shouldn't some beak have a feather in the hat? Furthermore, the creature had long shoulder blades that could easily be mistaken for wings.
3. Sea snake
The sea serpent is another cruel animal believed to patrol the sea. The Navy sailors of yesteryear told so many detailed stories about its existence that it became folklore. The creature is, as you might guess from its name, a supposedly monstrous fish-snake hybrid. Like the Kraken, the sea serpent exists, although its characteristics and stories are greatly exaggerated. For starters, the sea snake is believed to be a fish, actually looking like a fish snake hybrid. But this is where their similarities end. Even if it is long enough for the fish, the original fish is very small. It grows 30 feet long, which is the longest bony fish in existence. Unfortunately, we know very little about the redfish because it lives under deep water. However, we know that it does not apply to humans or fish, but also small marine organisms such as crustaceans and krill. It was officially discovered in 1772, centuries after its first appearance.
The people of Nepal and the Himalayas of China have traditionally spoken of the existence of a large, hairy six-foot creature called Yeti. The existence of this mythical and elusive being only became widely known in 1921, when some British explorers claimed that his footprints were found while climbing Everest. The explorers said their local guides call them 'Metoh-Kangmi (' Man-Bear-Snowman) '. However, journalist Henry Newman, who interviewed the group, called 'Mateo' rather 'dirty' than 'human bear'. He later got dirty in disgusting because he looked better. This is how the Yeti got its more common name, the hideous snowman. The name, the abstract snowman, may mistake you in the Yeti for an invisible and uncivilized race of people. However, if we go back to our correct Himalayan name, "Man-Bear-Snowman", we would quickly realize that we are dealing with a human-sized bear living in an icy environment. The Yeti is a Himalayan brown and black bear, two actual subspecies of the bear that lives in the Himalayas. Like the Yeti, both bears are large, furry, and brown (or black in the case of black bears). DNA testing has shown that most of the hair, skin, teeth, fur, and faeces that belong to the Yeti belong to these bears.
5th and 6th centuries BC In the middle, an explorer from ancient Carthage, named Hano the Navigator, discovers a tribe of Baal and "uncivilized people" as he navigates the West African coast. In his report, Hanno writes that the tribe has more men than women, whom he called 'hairy women' and gorillai. Hanno's group followed the tribe, but they all fled. The men climbed pretty fast and fast from the rocks where stones were thrown at them. The women were slow and his team was able to catch three. However, they aggressively fought back and forced Hanno and his men to kill and strip them. He takes his skin to Carthage. The creatures became folklore because no Westerner saw them again until an American missionary named T.S. Savage, rediscovered them in 1847. He was not a man, but a monkey. Or to be more precise, these are the monkeys we now call gorillas. Savage named the new creatures 'troglodyte gorillas', in keeping with Hanno's gorilla. To be clear, there is a debate as to whether Hanno saw gorillas or other monkeys. However, Savage's "Troglodytes gorilla" was later called a "gorilla gorilla", while the animal was called a gorilla.
