New Creature Near Discovery Center

On March 23rd we described a mysterious cat image that had appeared at the southeast corner of Springfield's Discovery Center.  Now, another creature has appeared only a few yards away. What could it be?  A tiger?   A ferret?  Perhaps something unknown to science? - found by E.C.

More Monsters in Willard

As mentioned in a previous post, the world premiere of Believing in Monsters was staged at Willard High School in Willard Missouri this weekend. By all accounts the show was a rousing success. Strangely enough, though, outside the theater another monster was making an appearance. Willard High School has its own Green Monster feeding bin (like those described at other locations in previous investigations), and it hints that the infamous Green Monster may be undergoing unforeseen changes. Unlike previous sightings of Green Monster images, this monster has developed a third eye! The Green Monster mystery grows stranger and stranger!

Two Headed Creature!

While exploring Founder's Park on Water Street (searching for more evidence of the Urban Skunk Ape) we caught sight of what appeared to be a strange two-headed monster beyond a group of buildings to the north. We circled the buildings onto Booneville Avenue and then followed the railroad tracks to the location of the beast. It proved to be a statue of some kind of two-headed creature secluded behind a chain-link fence.

Making the situation even stranger, we recognized that it was the very same statue that had earlier been seen along the side of Highway 60 between Springfield and Republic, but had disappeared some time before.
How did it arrive at its new location?

Pictograph at the Woodruff

This strange image of some hideous creature was recently found along the eastern base of the Woodruff Building on Jefferson Avenue, What kind of creature does it represent, and how did it get there?  Is there some connection between this image and the alien pictographs behind the Landers Theater?  Until we know more, we're naming this creature "Woodruff".

More on the Marionville Mutants

As runners from around the Ozarks prepare for next weekend's Running of the Squirrels 5K race in Marionville Missouri, we decided to take a closer look at that town's favorite mutants - the famous White Squirrels.

Although commonly reported to be albinos, it is possible that these squirrels are actually carrying a gene for leucism, a similar condition causing white fur and dark eyes rather than the pink eyes found in albinism. Thus we set out to document the eye color of the White Squirrels.

Arriving in town at approximately 8 AM we were quickly able to locate seven White Squirrels within a half acre space. Rather than behaving competitively (as squirrels often do) all seven appeared to be feeding peacefully and cooperatively. Although their eyes often appeared dark, it became obvious that most of the squirrels exhibited bright red or pink eyes. Within a few minutes we were able to capture 42 separate images of white squirrels via digital camera.

Later, on inspection, we discovered something very unusual about our photographs. Each photo of a red-eyed subject was strangely blurred as if something was interfering with the operation of the camera. Only one photo was successful, the only photo taken when the subject's eyes were not gleaming red. Is it possible that the White Squirrel's glowing eyes had some mysterious effect on our camera? Perhaps these creatures are exhibiting mutations more powerful than previously thought!
