Sheila Wordell/Millicent

Sheila Wordell/ Millicent

I run in the morning and I am usually up in time to see the sunrise. Every now and then I catch a glimpse of the nocturnal Lake Michigan Monster Millicent grabbing a last minute quacker-snack before she dives below the surface until the sun sets. I am pleased to see that with her angler fish attributes she has joined the green movement and has switched to an energy efficient bulb.

Celeste Gagnon/Tiny Monster

Celeste Gagnon/ Tiny Monster

This is Blarg. He is super tiny, so is afraid of most things.

Justin Segal/Grønkle

Justin Segal/ grønkle

When Sonja heard that the zoo had captured a Grønkle, she grabbed her sister and ran right down to see for herself.

Jared Konopitski/Sirloin monster

Jared Konopitski/ Sirloin monster

If you see this little fella on your raw meat products, you know the meat has gone bad! Contact the manager and point out the little meat monster so they may dispose of them immediately. If unattended a whole deli can be over run with these sirloin nightmares in just a few hours.

Tiarles Rodeghiero/They're going down!

Tiarles Rodeghiero/ They're going down!

A classic tentaculous big monster destroying a building in Pelotas (indigene: balls), Rio Grande do Sul (Big South River), Brazil.


Roody/ Toothpicks

Their role is quite simple, they sit on the end of every toothpick and clean peoples' teeth...

When the toothpick's owner decided to build an Eiffel Tower replica out of
it, Glenn, Eugene, Orville and and a few other toothpicks monsters decided to go on strike.

Jane Davies/Snowskier

Jane Davies/ Snowskier

Jason Grube/Murray Morgan

Jason Grube

Murray Morgan Monster. I spotted this monster helping boaters sail underneath the Murray Morgan Bridge. Since the historic lift bridge has been neglected he's taken it upon himself to raise the roadway and let boaters through.

Alice Carroll/Camping

Alice Carroll

Here's a couple monsters crossing a creek at the Brindabellas, near Canberra in Australia. Startled them while camping over the weekend.

Joshua S. Rapp/Men's Room

Joshua S. Rapp

Charl has been caught off guard in a public restroom again. The subject was anthropological amphibian creatures. I think I nailed it, although now I hate all frogs as a species.

Jennifer L. Addotta/Lake Tahoe

Jennifer L. Addotta

My husband and his friends saw this guy on their way back from Lake Tahoe. He must not mind the cold.

Cliff Mueller/Smoke Spitter

Cliff Mueller

We were trying to figure out why it was such an uncharacteristically cloudy day... so we took up my friends airplane and came across this guy. Smoking from the head. He must have had a good fire going in his belly!

Jordi Castells/Swine Flu

Jordi Castells

And we thought the swine flu was terrible!

Steven Topley/Bath Time
