Did Giants Ever Exist on Earth?

They are big stones. Enormous sculptures and visual art. Often, as in the case of the giant menhirs at Kernario in Brittany they stand like sentinels as part of a vast megalithic complex. It has been assumed that our civilization was invented in the Near East and exported to Europe. But these big stones, are perhaps centuries older than initially determined, making some of these European stone monuments older than the pyramids.

Giant Axe. Minoic Culture

Is it possible, that these commanding and enigmatic structures date before The Flood, and were constructed by Giants; the mythological Nephilim and Anakim referenced in the Bible and other scriptures. After their descent to Earth, these people known as Watchers indulged in earthly delights with their chosen “wives”, and through these unions were born Giant offspring named as Nephilim a Hebrew word meaning ”those who have fallen ” which rendered in Greek translations as Gigantes, or “Giants”.

People had always known they were there, those jumbles of giant stones. They were found along the coasts of Spain and Portugal and deep into France. From Brittany they extended north over southern and western England, Wales and Ireland, as far as the Shetland Islands. From Holland, the extended eastward over northern Germany, and by way of Denmark, into southern Sweden. Throughout this region they lay in their thousands, odd and varied monuments of huge, roughly dressed stones. In some cases a ring of mighty boulders, in other places stood ”dolmens” , upright stones surmounted by massive capstones; elsewhere there were ”menhirs”, single standing stones, sometimes alone, sometimes in lines or avenues, sometimes in circles. Most of these monuments were in ruins.

David and Goliath, Gustave Dore

Still, there were exceptions. These monuments were certainly not of natural origin. And that is their mystery. They had to be super-natural, for no mortal man or earthly beast could have raised such colossal blocks of granite one upon the other. Clearly, they had to belong to a remote past, when giants and heros and demi-gods roamed the earth. The coming of Christianity did little to weaken the popular belief in the supernatural origin of the great stone monuments. Names like the ”Devil’s Den” and the ”Devil’s Ring and Finger” identified the agency now considered to be responsible. And it was said of many a standing stone that the Devil had hurled it at the nearest church, but had fallen short in his aim.

''Genesis 6:4 "There were Nephilim (giants) on the earth in those days and afterwards"

The implications of these monuments being built by these children of “The Nephilim” and the daughters of Man, the children of Cain; are profound, particularly, from the theological perspective. These giant “Anakim” were endowed with enormous strength and length. (from 10 to 100 meters tall) and their lifetime was about 500 years. It is plausible that these Giants were the builders of the enormous structures all over the word, including the Pyramids of Egypt, Stonehenge in England and many more structures and ancient cities; the prediction of “The Earth Fathers” may have been fulfilled, shortly before or after the flood, with the creation of a new “race”, namely” homo sapiens” as this variant of the creationist theory holds and might not be totally discarded at the drop of a hat:

” The offspring of The Nephilim and the daughters of men, “The Anakim” Giants, “created” all kinds of Demons and Monsters, they had the knowledge from their “Fathers” the “Nephilim” to create what ever they liked and so were born the most “Strange Creatures” that ever existed on EarthCan you imagine why I don’t belief in the theory that all living people on this earth are children of ADAM and EVE ?. People who still belief that story are unwilling to read the Bible and other books as historical books.

When we read ancient history carefully we should have seen that almost ALL nations who were ruled by Kings made often War against each other. This phenomenon is left over from the time above discussed. Keep in mind that these Kings mostly were offspring of the Anakim who learned to kill from their fathers the Giant “Anakim” .I believe that this is the reason we live with our “primitive based historical thoughts” in the 21st century. Why are we still fighting all kinds of wars all over the world, most of them regarding religious differences and thoughts, (Catholics against Protestants, Islam against Christians etc.) It should be better to unite our knowledge and seek for the real history of mankind. When we use our knowledge and for

religion we will soon “awake” and see that we still fight each other at present time due to the difference in religious thoughts. So far we did not learn from our history. We could know better but are unwilling to use our intelligence. I can’t understand that we still do not learn from our ancestors NOT to worship these beings as Gods, as even in present time is still common.” ( L.C. Geerts )

Only with the new rationalism of the Renaissance was it realized that the stone monuments of western and northern Europe must be the works of man, or some form thereof. Efforts were made to explain them on these terms, sometimes with results as fanciful as those that had gone before. In 1662, a certain Walter Charleton disagreed with the prevailing view that the greatest stone monument of them all, Stonehenge in England was not a Roman temple dedicated to Coelus, the father of the gods as declared by Inigo Jones, architect of James I of England. Charleton was one of the first to realize that the stone monuments were not isolated phenomena, but were related in form and probably in purpose over considerable distances.

''Since the painter’s execution of this painting seemed masterly in every other respect, I concluded that perhaps his intent was to portray an oversized skull. Perhaps it represented the skeletal head of one of the primordial patriarchs of the Grail bloodline. If, as has been said, the grave of an ancient sacred king were somehow at Rennes-le-Chateau, perhaps those discovering it would open the tomb of a giant, a descendant of the Nephilim. ''

It was common practice by this time to ascribe the ”rude monuments” to the last pre-Christian inhabitants of each country such as the Gauls in France and the Celts in Britain. The attribution of England,s monuments to the Druids was the invention of John Aubrey, the seventeenth century discoverer of the great stone circle of Avebury, and the theory was developed in the following century by the ”interpreter” of Stonehenge, William Stukeley. Both men had pieced together, from scattered classical references to the druids, the image of an esoteric religion in which all Christianity was foreshadowed. Not until well into the nineteenth century did these explanations begin to give way before the questionings of a new school of rationalists, the first archaeologists.

The Sphinx

In 1819 Christian Thomsen arranged the collections of the Danish Museum of Antiquities in three cultural groupings, which he called the Stone Age, the Bronze Age and the Iron Age; and in 1836 he published ”A Guide to Scandinavian Antiquities” , in which he asserted that these three ages were chronologically consecutive. After this, it was no longer possible to lump together stone axes and iron swords, flint arrowheads and bronze bucklers as ”pre-Roman” or ”Gothic” or ”ancient British” or to ascribe the rude stone monuments indiscriminately to Gauls, Celts, or Druids for example.

Menhirs. standing like sentinels. Giant menhirs at Carnac ( Kermario ) in Brittany are part of a vast megalithic complex.

In 1840, Thomsen’s pupil and successor, Jens Worsaae produced the first regional survey of stone monuments including the dolmens of Denmark, the large chambers surmounted by one large capstone. It is at this time that the term ”megalith” was coined. On the basis of the excavations, Worsaae stated that the dolmens were not altars or crowning places of Germanic kings, but graves and their contents proved beyond a doubt that they belonged to the Age of Stone. Thirteen years later, Dr. Lukis, of Jersey, produced a similar survey of the Channel Island monuments, confirming Worsaae’s view that these magalithic chambers were of Stone Age date and were sepulchers, and that the monuments of those in france, England and Wales, showed so many identical features that they must have been built by the same race.

''In Roman mythology Triton is a merman, demigod of the sea, son of Neptune. In Greek mythology, Triton is also a merman (ie half male human-half fish) son of the sea god Poseidon and his wife Amphitrite. According to the Greek poet Hesiod, Triton dwelt with his parents in a golden palace in the depths of the sea. Sometimes he was not particularized but was one of many Tritons. He was represented as human down to his waist, with the tail of a fish.''

Later, Conrad Engelhardt, another Dane, in 1870, noted that the megalith graves extended into the southern Mediterranean , the Middle East, Persia and India in greater and lesser concentrations, but basically confined to lowland areas, the coast and river valleys. He claimed that their mode of construction, and their monumental character appeared to have originated in one and the same culture; the northern megalithic tombs being of Stone Age date, further south of Bronze Age and further east, particularly in India, even iron objects were found in the megalithic tombs.

This might mean, Engelhardt implied, that the megalithic culture originated in the north and gradually spread southward, but it is equally likely that southern and western Europe possessed and used bronze at a time when the metal was unknown in the north. From L.C. Geerts:

dolmen at Kilclooney, Ireland

”The Great structures and Building of which we can find fragments today, The Pyramids of Egypt and many other all over the world, The Temples in India, Mexico and other places in South America, Cities like Tiawanacu in Bolivia, Mohenjo-Daro and Harappa in India and last but not least Stonehenge in England, the Megaliths (Menhirs) in Bretagne France, Hunnebeds in The Netherlands and Germany, Baalbek in Lebanon are build by Giants and not by human beings (Homo Sapiens), our real ancestors.

More proof of the above we can find in Museums in the form of giant tools and even giant skulls of which the origin is unknown. The enormous stones that were used by their builders to made these structures, most are from ten to thousands of tons in weight each, can not be cut out of the mountains and transported over (most enormous distances) by human beings.

Giant skull

Even at present time we are not able to build such structures, even with our most advanced machines.I mentioned already that the Giant “Analim” died out slowly and their “skills” degenerated in time, there was only a small piece left of the original strength and length compared to their ancestors, the first Giants with their enormous strength and length could have had a length of 10-100 meters. (keep in mind the length that is given in Enoch, 3000 ells). It sounds unbelievable but we know that this is the truth.

The “Anakim” were quite tall and fierce. They were living almost over all the Middle-East, Europe, America and Asia before the destruction of the flood, there was a remnant of them after the flood which possibly inhabited Ammon, Moab, Edom and Bash an with it’s fortified city with high walls and gates with bars, just to name a few who yet inhabited earth after the flood. Reasons behind the continued wars and great slaughters with total destruction in Biblical times.

''The Mt. Blanco Fossil Museum is a scientific and educational institution dedicated to a correct interpretation of Earth history and fossil remains. We believe that the fossil record speaks of catastrophic events happening several thousand years ago rather than slow processes taking place over millions or billions of years as is held by the popular establishment''

Was this in any way connected with the people trying to control Mother Nature through and with these entities and their children? Of course it was. The destruction caused by the great flood, the end of the so called “golden” age was a result of the increasing evil done by the “Anakim” and their children. From the forbidden knowledge of those who came down. We know that evil and corruption increased with their appearance on Earth before the Flood but we have seen already that even after the Flood they still existed until historical times.

There are countless stories of visitors and or entities from the universe throughout our ancient history to date.

Sacred books and folklore of widely separated lands all tell of Gods who visited Earth wrapped in clouds or conveyed by fiery chariots.The Emims were as tall as the Anakims and belonged also to the Giants, and they were Children of the Anakims and Moses referred that these children of the Anakims still lived on Earth in the days of Joshua and later still in the days of David. (Goliath) The Children of the Anakims (Anak) were as tall as their fathers but the degeneration of the Giant race, in length and in strength was obvious decreasing in those days because they were destroyed in a great number during the time of Joshua, Saul and David.


Moses spoke also of Giants in the days of the journey out of Egypt, again proof that the Gods didn’t destroy all of them during the Flood because they still lived thousands of years after the flood in great numbers. (proof of that we can also find in the books of Enoch) I mentioned already the story of Moses, but there are more of the Giants in the Bible :
Also in Numbers we see a fleeting picture of the character of these “mighty ones.”

Nm:13:32: And they brought up an evil report of the land which they had searched unto the children of Israel, saying, The land, through which we have gone to search it, is a land that eateth up the inhabitants thereof; and all the people that we saw in it are men of a great stature.
Nm:13:33: And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight.


Even the Children of Anak (Anakim) were still of a great stature, still so great that Joshua and his army were like grasshoppers before them, so even after a long period of degeneration the Children of the Anakim were still Giants in their eyes. A strange detail is that is written that these sons of Anak eats the inhabitants of that land, so they were also Cannibals.



Northern Lights Over Part of England

This was the beautiful scene as the Northern Lights made a rare but breathtaking appearance over parts of England. The first picture shows the iridescent glow in the skies over County Durham, while the next is of the ethereal light that bathed the Tan Hill Inn in North Yorkshire. Such impressive sights are normally witnessed only much further north, in the icy wilderness of the Arctic Circle.

Stargazers in parts of Scotland, Northern Ireland, Ireland and in North East England were also able to see the dazzling display.

The Northern Lights, or aurora borealis, have been glimpsed in Scotland and England in recent years but astronomers say unusually strong solar storms have produced its best appearance for more than a decade – with purples, yellows, oranges and even neon green filling the sky.

The display was captured on Sunday but should have been visible last night and again tonight and tomorrow. Robin Scagell, of the Society for Popular Astronomy, said: 'It looks like we could be treated to another cosmic light show and so it is well worth watching the northern part of the heavens.

In spite of light pollution obscuring much of the lower horizons of the night sky, the dramatic glowing mass that is the Milky Way galaxy shines (top left to bottom right) creating a dazzling display in Teesdale, County Durham

'It is a new moon at present so any aurora will show up better in a dark night sky.'

Photographer Paul Kingston, who captured the sight over the Tan Hill Inn in the Pennines, said: 'To the naked eye it was so subtle that at first I didn’t realise exactly what I was seeing, but a long exposure in the camera made it suddenly jump out at me.

'As my eyes became more and more attuned I could see it flickering across the sky more and more clearly – a fantastic sight.'

The Northern Lights are caused by charged electrons from the sun colliding with atoms in the outer reaches of Earth’s atmosphere, 60 to 200 miles up.

These particles stream away from the sun at speeds of about 1million mph and are drawn to Earth’s northern and southern poles by its magnetic field.

Which atoms the electrons encounter when they hit the Earth – either oxygen or nitrogen – and the altitude at which they meet, determine whether the colours are green, red, blue or purple.

The magnetic and electrical forces continue to react, making it look as if the lights are dancing.

The lights have been seen so far south because the solar explosion that sent out the particles was particularly strong.



You Are What You Eat

The saying 'you are what you eat' is true for these insects as stunning pictures show their abdomens changing colour as they sip on sugar drops. Father of three Mohamed Babu set up the photographs after his wife, Shameem, showed him some ants had turned white after drinking spilt milk. He gave the creatures the brightly coloured sugar drops and watched as their transparent stomachs matched the food they were eating.

A good palette: Some of the ants even wandered from one colour to another, creating new combinations in their stomachs.

Some of the ants even wandered from one colour to another, creating new combinations in their bodies. Scientist Dr Babu, mixed the sugar drops with edible colours red, green, blue and yellow and placed them in his garden to attract the insects. By placing them on a paraffin base the drops kept their shape when touched by the ants. The 53-year-old discovered the ants preferred lighter colours such as yellow and green.

He said: 'The idea for the photograph came to me after my wife showed me some ants that turned white sipping the spilled milk drops on our kitchen counter.

'I shot the photo in my garden to take advantage of the natural lighting and set a paraffin sheet with coloured sugar drops near some ants.

'Even though I could get enough of a crowd within a few minutes, it required several retakes to have a shot up to my satisfaction.'

Ring of colour: An ant's transparent abdomen shows the colour of the food they have eaten

Dr Babu, from Mysore, in South India said: 'As the ant's abdomen is semi-transparent, the ants gain the colours as they sip the liquid.

'The secret is the paraffin base, which prevents the drops collapsing when the ants touch them.

'I really toiled to get a photo. The crowd always used to become unmanageable within a few minutes and while I managed my camera with my right hand, my left hand was busy removing the extra ants.

'Once I lost the chance, I could only repeat it the next day.' he explained.

'Curiously, the ants preferred light colours, yellow and green.

'The darker green and blue drops had no takers, till there was no space around the preferred yellow and green drops.

'So I put larger drops of yellow and green, and smaller red and blue, to get maximum saturation around all the colours.'

Eating their greens: The ants seemed to prefer lighter colours such as greens and yellow to darker blues



Top 30 Mythical Humanoid Creatures

Some mythical creatures, have their origin in tradition and some might beliving in distant past. However each culture is associated with a multitude of such creatures, many of them being humanoids. Literally, there are thousands of legendary humanoid creatures that might have in real or believed to be lurked upon our planet but we shall tell here the tales of the most popular ones integrated in various cultures.

1. Gog and Magog

Gog Magog appear in the Qur’an, Book of Genesis, the Book of Ezekiel and the Book of Revelation. They are variously presented as supernatural beings, demons or national groups that lurked upon the land. Gog and Magog occur widely in mythology and folklore and their existence is accepted by many religions including Islam, Christianity and Judaism.

The widely accepted belief both in Christianity and Islam holds that “He of the Two Horns” (a great and righteous ruler) or Two Ages (one who impacts on two ages) travelled the world in three directions, until he found a tribe threatened by Gog and Magog, who were of an “evil and destructive nature” and “caused great corruption on earth.” The people offered tribute in exchange for protection, he agreed to help them, but refused the tribute; he constructed a great wall that the hostile nations were unable to penetrate. They will be trapped there until doomsday, and their escape will be a sign of the end: “The War of Gog and Magog” would precede the return of Jesus. .

2. Satyr

Satyrs were originally seen as companions of the goat god Pan in ancient Greek civilisation. The first drawings of satyrs were of normal men, though often with an erect phallus. It was later merged with the Roman faun which is when they began to be depicted as half men half goats (the upper body being that of the man, and the lower half being that of a goat). Satyrs are described as roguish but faint-hearted folk — subversive and dangerous, yet shy and cowardly.

Many early accounts which apparently refer to this animal describe the males as being sexually aggressive towards human women and towards females of its own species. In old age they are often seen with horns on their head, while young satyrs are seen with nubs instead.

3. Abarimon

Abarimon is the name of a legendary race with backwards feet, but in spite of this handicap were able to run at great speed. They lived side by side with wild animals and attempts to capture them failed because they were so savage.

They lived in a great valley of Mount Imaus (now called theHimalayan Mountains in Pakistan). There was a special quality of air which meant if it was breathed for a long period of time it would be impossible to breathe any other type of air and the inhabitants could never leave the valley alive.

4. Nephilim

Nephilim are beings, who appear in the Hebrew Bible; specifically mentioned in the Book of Genesis and the Book of Numbers; they are also mentioned in other Biblical texts and in some non-canonical Jewish writings. They were called fallen ones because men’s hearts would fail at the sight of them.

Some suggest that they were giants and when they fell, the ground shook, causing others to fall too. They might not be historical figures but ancient imagery with questionable meaning. Some view of them as the hybrid offspring of fallen angels and human women. In Hebrew Bible there is also mention of Rephaites alongside Nephilims, who were an ancient race of giants in Iron Age and were thought to be dead that lurked upon earth.

5. Mermaid

A mermaid is a mythological aquatic creature with a female human head and torso and the tail of a fish..The mermaids have been discussed since at least 5000 BC. Her origins are believed to be from the Great Queen Atargatis, who loved a mortal shepherd and unintentionally killed him.

Ashamed, she jumped into a lake to take the form of a fish, but the waters would not conceal her divine beauty. Thereafter, she took the form of a mermaid—human above the waist, fish below. Mermaids were however noted in British folklore as unlucky omens – both foretelling disaster and provoking it. There is a high possibility that people had been confusing them with Sirenias (aquatic animals) or people suffering from a congenital disease Sirenomelia (aka mermaid syndrome in which a child is born with his or her legs fused together).

6. Banshee

The Banshee is a female spirit in Irish mythology, usually seen as an omen of death and a messenger from the Otherworld. The story of the bean-sidhe began as a fairy woman keening at the death of important personages. In later stories, the appearance of the banshee could foretell the death.

According to the legend, the banshee can appear in a variety of guises. Most often she appears as an ugly, frightening hag, but can also appear as a stunningly beautiful woman of any age that suits her and is seen washing the blood stained clothes or armour of those who are about to die. Although not always seen, her mourning call is heard, usually at night when someone is about to die and usually around woods.

7. Abatwa

In Zulu mythology, Abatwa are tiny humans said to be able to hide beneath a blade of grass and to be able to ride ants. They are said to live a nomadic lifestyle and are continually on the hunt for game. Legend states that if one happens to come across an Abatwa, one will typically be asked a question like, “From where did you first see me?”

One must reply by saying one saw them from a mountain, or some far away area. They are said to be extremely sensitive about their size, and if one answers by saying that one only saw them right then for the first time, the Abatwa will try to kill them with poison arrows. Stepping on an Abatwa by accident is also said to be a death sentence.Due to their shy nature, they will only tolerate being seen by the very young (said to be anyone under the age of 4), by magicians, and by pregnant women. If a pregnant woman in her seventh month of pregnancy sees a male Abatwa, it is said that she will give birth to a boy.

8. Elf

An elf is a being of Germanic mythology. The elves were originally thought of as a race of divine or semi-divine beings endowed with magical powers, which they use both for the benefit and the injury of mankind.

In pre-Christian mythology, they appear to have been divided into light elves and dark elves, The earliest preserved description of elves comes from Norse mythology that holds that the men could be elevated to the rank of elves after death, Crossbreeding was possible between elves and humans in the Old Norse belief.Words for the nymphs of the Greek were translated to be same as “elves” or its variants by Anglo-Saxon scholars.

9. Cyclops

In Greek and Roman mythology, a cyclops is a member of a primordial race of giants, each with a single eye in the middle of its forehead. It is a great possibility that people have been mistaken a congenital abnormality called Cyclopia in which the human baby is malformed having only one central eye.

10. Orc

Orc is a word used to refer to various races of tough and warlike humanoid creatures in various fantasy settings. Orcs are often portrayed as misshapen humanoids who are brutal, warmongering, and sadistic.

Orcs are described of varying size, ugly, filthy, with a taste for human flesh. They are fanged, bow-legged and long-armed, and some have dark skin as if burned. The author Tolkien describes them as “squat, broad, flat-nosed, sallow-skinned, with wide mouths and slant eyes … degraded and repulsive versions of the (to Europeans) least lovely Mongol-types”. They are portrayed as miserable, crafty and vicious beings. In nearly all the epic works, their origins are considered as foul broodlings animated solely by the Satan’s evil will.

11. Kapre

Kapre is a Philippine mythical creature that could be characterized as a tree demon, but with more human characteristics. It is described as being a tall, brown, hairy male with a beard. Kapres are normally described as smoking a big tobacco pipe, whose strong smell would attract human attention. The term kapre comes from the Arabic “kaffir” meaning a non-believer in God.

Kapres may make contact with people to offer friendship, or if it is attracted to a woman. If a Kapre befriends any human, especially because of love, the Kapre will consistently follow its “love interest” throughout life. Also, if one is a friend of the Kapre then that person has the ability to see it and if they were to sit on it then any other person could see it. Kapres are also said to play pranks on people, frequently making travelers become disoriented and lose their way in the mountains or in the woods.


Leprechauns have been linked to the Tuatha Dé Danann of Irish mythology who are thought to derive from the pre-Christian deities of Ireland. When the surviving stories were written, Ireland had been Christian for centuries, and the Tuatha Dé were represented as mortal kings, queens and heroes of the distant past; however there are many clues to their former divine status.

Popular depiction shows leperchauns as being no taller than a small child. The leprechaun is said to be a solitary creature, whose principal occupation is making and mending shoes, and who enjoys practical jokes. According to William Butler Yeats, the great wealth of these fairies comes from the “treasure-crocks, buried of old in war-time”, which they have uncovered and appropriated.According to McAnally the leprechaun is the son of an “evil spirit” and a “degenerate fairy” and is “not wholly good nor wholly evil”

13. Ogre

Ogre possibly derived from Oegrus from Greek mythology who was the son of Greek blood shedder god. The word ogre is of French origin. Keeping the Greek myth, Oegrus might have cursed some people to ogres where an ogre is described large, cruel, monstrous and hideous humanoid monster.

Also featured in mythology, folklore and fiction. Ogres are often depicted in fairy tales and folklore as feeding on human beings, and have appeared in many classic works of literature. In art, ogres are often depicted with a large head, abundant hair and beard, a voracious appetite, and a strong body. The term is often applied in a metaphorical sense to disgusting persons who exploit, brutalize or devour their victims. The French tale tells of them as habitants of kingdom of Logres [England].

14. Dziwożona

Dziwozoana or Mamuna are female swamp demons in Slavic mythology known for being malicious and dangerous. Most at risk of becoming one of these demons after death were thought to bemidwives, old maids, unmarried mothers, pregnant women who die before childbirth, as well as abandoned children.

Sometimes they carry off young men to be their husbands. The Dziwozona had huge breasts which they used for attack and murdering.

15. Mono Grande

They are descibed as ape-like hairy and men-like torso-ed cannibals sighted in South America. They are reported as being aggressive to humans.

And on encounter they attack humans on sight but might carry off women for breeding. However they are unrecognized by a scientific consensus and myths that came to South America with European colonists.

16. Vampires

Vampires are mythological beings who subsist by feeding on the life essence (generally in the form of blood) of living creatures, regardless of whether they are undead or a living person.Although vampiric entities have been recorded in many cultures, the belief in vampires and bloodsucking demons is as old as man himself, and may go back to prehistoric times.

Vampires were generally referred to as cold beings who could be destroyed by daylight. Holes appearing in the earth over a grave were taken as a sign of vampirism. There is no scientific evidence of vampirism except the Vampire Bat.

17. Tellem

The Tellem were the people who inhabited the Bandiagara Escarpment in Mali. It is thought by some in Mali today that the Tellem possessed the power of flight.

They are described like “Lord of the ring’s Hobbit like creatures” and they built dwellings around the base of the escarpment as well as directly into the cliff-face like the hobbits. Many of these structures are still visible in the area.

18. Yeti

Yeti or abominable snowman mythological humanoid creature said to inhabit the Himalayan region of Pakistan and Nepal. The scientific community largely regards the Yeti as a legend, yet it remains one of the most famous creatures of cryptozoology parallel to Bigfoot of North America.

It is tall, bipedal creature covered with long white hair and wore no clothes. He had an interesting feature of changing his hair colour in sunlight to fox red.

19. Tiyanak

Tiyank is a creature which, in Philippine mythology, imitates the form of a child. It usually takes the form of a newborn baby and cries like one in the jungle to attract unwary travelers.

Once it is picked up by the victim, it reverts to its true form and attacks the victim. Aside from slashing victims, the tianak also delights in leading travelers astray, or in kidnapping children.

Theories claim that the tianak is the spirit of a child whose mother died before giving birth. This caused it to be “born in the ground”, thus gaining its current state.

20. Werewolf

Werewolf is a mythological human with the ability to shapeshift into a wolf or an anthropomorphic wolf-like creature, either purposely, by being bitten or scratched by another werewolf, or after being placed under a curse.

This transformation is often associated with the appearance of the full moon. Werewolves are often attributed super-human strength and senses, far beyond those of both wolves or men.

21. Fomorian

In Irish mythology, were a semi-divine race who inhabited Ireland in ancient times. They may have once been believed to be the beings who preceded the gods, similar to the Greek Titans.

It has been suggested that they represent the gods of chaos and wild nature, as opposed to the Tuatha Dé Danann who represent the gods of human civilization. They are sometimes said to have had the body of a man and the head of a goat, or to have had one eye, one arm and one leg, but some, for example Elatha, were very beautiful.

22. Blemmyes

The Blemmyes was a tribe which became fictionalized as a race of creatures believed to be acephalous (headless) monsters who had eyes and mouths on their chest. Ancient writers sometimes used the term anthropophagi (Grk: man eaters) to describe the Blemmyes, as they were known for their cannibalistic proclivities.

23. Tikbalang

Tikbalang is a creature of Philippine myth said to lurk in the mountains and forests of the Philippines. It is generally described as a tall, bony humanoid creature with disproportionately long limbs, to the point that its knees reach above its head when it squats down. It has the head and feet of an animal, most commonly a horse.

It is sometimes believed to be a transformation of an aborted fetus which has been sent to earth from hell. Tikbalangs are said to scare travelers and lead them astray such that they keep on returning to an arbitrary path no matter how far he goes or where he turns. Supposedly this is counteracted by wearing one’s shirt inside out.

24. Encantado

An encantado is a Brazilian legendary creature. They live in a deep underwater realm named the Encante. Encantados are most commonly viewed as a type of freshwater dolphin or sea snake that has the ability to shapeshift into human form.

They are characterized by superior musical ability, seductiveness, and attraction to parties. The creature’s transformation into human form seems to be rare, and usually occurs at night. While in human form the encantado will wear a hat to hide its protruding forehead. It does not disappear while shapeshifting and frequently displays magical abilities, such as the power to control storms and haunt humans. They use various mind control techniques and can inflict illness, insanity, and even death. The creatures are known for kidnapping humans. Many villagers will not go near the Amazon River at night because of this. Plenty of South Americans believe in the existence of the encantado and claim to have seen and interacted with the species.

25. Aswang

Aswang is a mythical creature in Filipino folklore. The aswang is an inherently evil vampire-like creature and is the subject of a wide variety of myths and stories, the details of which vary greatly.

Spanish colonizers noted that the Aswang was the most feared among the mythical creatures of the Philippines, even in the 16th century. “Aswangs” are often described as a combination of vampire and witch and are almost always female. They are sometimes used as a generic term applied to all types of witches, manananggals, shapeshifters, werewolves, and monsters. Aswang stories and definitions vary greatly from region to region and person to person, so no one particular set of characteristics can be ascribed to the term. However, the term is often used interchangeably with manananggal, which is a particular creature with a specific set of features. They are often portrayed as a monster with wings which flap loudly when she’s far away and quietly when she’s nearer.

26. Basajaun

In Basque mythology, the basajaunak are a spirit dwelling in caves or in the woods who protects flocks of livestock and teaches skills such as agriculture and ironworking to humans.

The basajaun also exists in Aragonese mythology in the valleys of Tena, Ansó, and Broto. Fifteenth-century carvings depicting the basajaunak can be seen in Burgos Cathedral and in the monastery of Santa María la Real in Nájera.

27. Rakshasa

Rakshasha is a demon or unrighteous spirit in Hindu and Buddhist mythology. They are believed to be derived from foot of the Hindu God of Creation. Rakshasas are a populous race of supernatural humanoids who tend toward evil. Powerful warriors, they resort to the use of magic and illusion when unsuccessful with conventional weapons.

As shape-changers, they can assume various physical forms, and it is not always clear whether they have a true or natural form. Rakshasas are notorious for disturbing sacrifices, desecrating graves, harassing priests, possessing human beings, and so on. Their fingernails are venomous, and they feed on human flesh and spoiled food.

28. Wendigo

Wendigo is a mythical creature appearing in the mythology of the Algonquian people. It is a malevolent cannibalistic spirit into which humans could transform, or which could possess humans. Those who indulged in cannibalism were at particular risk, and the legend appears to have reinforced this practice as taboo.

Wendigos were alien like embodiments of gluttony, greed, and excess; never satisfied after killing and consuming one person, they were constantly searching for new victims. In some traditions, humans who became overpowered by greed could turn into Wendigos; the Wendigo myth thus served as a method of encouraging cooperation and moderation.

29. Incubus

Incubus is a demon in male form supposed to lie upon sleepers, especially women, in order to have sexual intercourse with them, according to a number of mythological and legendary traditions. An incubus may pursue sexual relations with a woman in order to father a child, to carry on its legend.

Some sources indicate that it may be identified by its unnaturally large or cold penis. Tradition holds that repeated intercourse with an incubus may result in the deterioration of health or death. Victims may have been experiencing waking dreams or sleep paralysis. The influence of incubi could also have been invoked to explain otherwise “unexplainable” pregnancies or real rapists might have been described as incubus to escape punishment.

30. Sasquatch

Sasquatch or better known as Bigfoot is usually described as a large, hairy, bipedal humanoid. The scientific community considers Bigfoot to be a combination of folklore, misidentification, and hoax, rather than a real creature.

Alleged witnesses have described large eyes, a pronounced brow ridge, and a large, low-set forehead; the top of the head has been described as rounded and crested, similar to the sagittal crest of the male gorilla. Bigfoot is commonly reported to have a strong, unpleasant smell by those who claim to have encountered it. Proponents have also claimed that Bigfoot is omnivorous and mainly nocturnal.
