Montauk Monster Update

A new picture of the Montauk monster was released on Friday. This new picture makes it seem like the 2nd picture takers rolled over the creature. Also, the legs seem to have been unbound by that small leather strap. This picture seems a little shady already because of the missing strap.

There are some things that do make a lot of sense about this picture though. The new picture definitely makes it look like a bloated, decomposed dog. On the underside where it was laying against the sand it’s not as dark seeing as how it was out of the sun. It also still has some fur on this side. There are 2 flies more visibly shown on this picture giving proof to its actual size being around that of a dog.

The Gawker and I are still not convinced along with many other people. A new interview with the 3 girls that were the “first” picture takers is also out. They show Plum’s Nick Leighton their camera with the picture in it and also the 2nd angle shot which is different than the rolled over pictures (That’s 5 pictures now including the new 3). The face looks different in these new pictures as well if you ask me. Nick Leighton also reveals that they’ve checked with several scientists who all think it’s neither a dog nor a raccoon (Still can’t believe you said it was a raccoon Jeff…). Anyways you can watch the interview for yourself and see what you think about it (And notice the dumb girls who supposedly took the pictures).

Montauk Monster=Half dog half turtle?

On Tuesday a photo showed up in the Gawker. The monster is very odd looking and a lot of people claim it to be photoshopped. There’s also a lot of “eyewitnesses” though and supposedly an old man took it off the beach to mount it on his wall. The tipster that sent it in to the Gawker in the first place was a viral marketer but she says it has nothing to do with any campaign.


It was rumored that this was part of the advertising for a new show on cartoon network called Cryptids Are Real. There are also rumors that it was a washed up experiment from an animal-disease research facility on Plum island which is right offshore from Montauk.

Either way this thing is pretty freaky looking and I wouldn’t put it past companies to make up a fake creature and have some actors to pretend they witnessed it. If it is some diseased animal though, it’s pretty freaky. I wouldn’t want to have a dog or turtle with that disease. Imagine getting bit with that beak!

Edit: Every time I tried to post this pic for awhile it kept breaking…freaky.

I also found out that an energy drink company called venom is offering a reward for anyone who can capture a “Monty”.

Also here’s a video from Fox claiming that it’s not real with Jeff Corwin for support. Lots of people say he looks scared and I agree that he’s stuttering a lot for someone who’s on tv all the time. They say that there’s a government official there with a gun forcing him to talk.
