This unusual specimen was found in Drexel University's butterfly exhibit. The wings on one side are female, while the ones on the other side are male. Beautiful.

Monsters of Iowa

Who would ever suspect that boring old Iowa was host to so many odd creatures?

Consider this winged monster from 1903, above.

Or this account, below, found along with more Iowa monsters in UNNATURAL PHENOMENA. (See book sidebar.)

Wawa Grande

image

Thanks to my pal, KW Jeter, who now lives in Ecuador, I learned about the existence of that country's own Bigfoot monster, "Wawa Grande."

Wawa Grande, which takes its name from the Quechuan word for baby and the Spanish word for big, reportedly stands upright on two legs and has thick, light gray or reddish hair. The Wawa legend dates back at least 200 years in Ecuador's southern Andes but several reported sightings since the 1980s sparked international interest.


Of course, a monster whose name translates as "Big Baby" instantly assumes less fearsome dimensions.
