Chair: Aliens & UFO's at Dead Ringer Paranormal
My name is Kathy Snow however in the Paranormal world I am simply known as katie! My team and I take the paranormal field very seriously and have been up and down the eastern seaboard investigating known and unknown locations. My team consists of all family members giving us the opportunity to work well together with no drama. I am a national as well as internationally published paranormal writer. Our evidence has been shown on My ghost story caught on camera and we work hard within our community to bring awareness and understanding to the field. There are four ordained ministers on the team. After 16 years in the field we no longer do in house investigations as we are out trying to find unknown haunted locations and we consult on cases other teams may have questions on. After founding 3 teams, we have recently relocated and our new team name is Dead Ringer Paranormal. We are proud of the work we do and try to show the community it is a scientific field of study and a lot of work goes into what we all do. We are an old world team meaning we investigate with just what we need, we do not hook up wires and tons of equipment, we believe in studying the paranormal in traditional proven ways. I am excited and proud to have been asked to be a rep for NPS..

The “Kongamato” of Africa
By Katie Snow

 

Deep within the wilds of central east Africa there lies a creature called the Kongamato.
The large beaked flying bird with lizard like skin with membranous wings creature gained notarity
in 1932. This is when explore Frank Welland described it in his literary works “Witchbound Africa”
stating it is a reddish bat like creature with leathery wings totally devoid of any features with a wing
span of five or more feet, and with teeth in its huge beak.

It looks very much like a pterodactyl when a picture is shown to eyewitnesses. The evidence
for this is the fact that the natives can describe it to such detail and accuracy even when unprompted.
The natives consider it a demon also known as a Mulombe, a very awful thing which is much worse then anything
that haunts these vast african lands. Mr. Welland states in his book that if ever this creature could thrive,
a reptil type bird such as this could thrive in this land.

The Kaonde people of the North-Western Province used to carry charms called “muchi wa Kongamato” to protect
them at certain river crossings from the Kongamato”. In the 1920’s, Headman Kanyinga from the Jiwundu Swamp
area near the Zairean border instantly identified as Kongamato a picture of a pterodactyl. Nevertheless,
as recently as 1958, the science journalist Maurice Burton wrote in the Illustrated London News in 1958
that there had been several reports form Africa of a pterodactyl-like creature, with speculation that
the Bangweulu Swamps might be one of its habitats. He pointed out that off the coast of Africa,
the coelacanth, a deep sea contemporary of the pterodactyl, had been caught by fisherman…”
(Hobson, Dick, Tales of Zambia, 1996)

Beast of Bodmin Moor

Lions, Tigers, Leopards, Cheetahs, Jaguars and the Beast of Bodmin Moor. Why is a giant cat roaming the British countryside?

There has never been a Genus Panthera on the British Isles. Its appearance is a large black feline…similar to a leopard or jaguar. What is interesting is there have been similar sightings in the South Eastern United States of a large black cat.

Some say it’s a cat that escaped from a zoo, but Scientists say it’s impossible to have a surviving number of Panthers on the UK.

Like any other large cat, it hunts livestock for food and care should be taken when looking for it. You will not know when it is stalking you until it is too late.

Look for it living on the moor in mid Cornwall in the UK

Mokele-mbembe

Mokèlé-mbèmbé, meaning “one who stops the flow of rivers” in the Lingala language, is a Large sauropod likely to be a Brachiosaurus living in the Congo or Sub Saharan Africa.

Descriptions are that its body is as large as an elephant with an extremely long neck. Reports are that it is a herbivore.

Is it such a stretch to think a living sauropod is still alive? With Africa having large Elephants, Rhinos and Hippos…the sauropod is very similar if not a dinosaur.

There have been and continues to be expeditions to find the Mokele-mbembe and with lush the jungles and unknown territory in equatorial Africa such as Congo, Cameroon and Gabon, and the sightings of Plesiosaurus and Pterosaurs around the world…are dinosaurs still with us?
