Shark Week! Here are 5 reasons to be amazed by sharks (instead of scared)!
Surfer Doug Niblack of Oregon had the ride of his life recently when he wound up standing on top of a thrashing great white shark instead of his surf board. Niblack recalled feeling his longboard hit something as he surfed about 50 yards off the Oregon Coast. After that bump, he said he saw a dorsal fin in front of him, with his feet planted on 10 feet of shark back. As this was going on, he said the shark's tail thrashed back and forth. "It was pretty terrifying just seeing the shape emerge out of nothing and just being under me," Niblack told the AP on Wednesday. "And the fin coming out of the water. It was just like the movies." "When I put my hands down on it, it felt rubbery like Neoprene, like a wetsuit," he continued. "There was a moment there when everything was going on, I just kind of made my peace. I honestly thought I was going to die. Then paddling back in, I was praying the whole time. Like, 'Don't let it be following me.'"

Fictitious Australian Animals
The bunyip, or kianpraty, is a large mythical creature from Aboriginal mythology, said to lurk in swamps, billabongs, creeks, riverbeds, and waterholes. The origin of the word bunyip has been traced to the Wemba-Wemba or Wergaia language of Aboriginal people of South-Eastern Australia. However, the bunyip appears to have formed part of traditional Aboriginal beliefs and stories throughout Australia, although its name varied according to tribal nomenclature.

Trunko is the only globster to have been sighted whilst still alive, thus discrediting claims the corpse was a mass of whale blubber. It has an elephant like trunk, hence the name. The trunk protruded oddly from no particular part of the torso, and the torso itself was covered in white fur . Besides this,Trunko had a crustacean-like tail, no visible face or bone structure, and was totally devoid of blood.

On October 25, 1924, people on a beach in KwaZulu-Natal, Margate, South Africa, witnessed a sea battle between a giant, white colored sea creature and two whales. Later that night, the bloodless carcass of a sea creature washed ashore. The body was measured at 47 feet long, 10 feet wide and 5 feet high. It had an unusual lobster-like tail that was 10 feet long and the entire body appeared to be covered in white fur, which was 8 inches long.

Livyatan melvillei, this ancient sperm whale relative was pretty much the same size as its modern relative at 57 feet, but its teeth were much larger and sharper, meaning it probably ate other whales. It had the "largest tetrapod bite" of all time.

Is the Loch Ness Monster Dead ?The Loch Ness Monster is a cryptid, reputedly a large unknown animal that inhabits Loch Ness in the Scottish Highlands. It is similar to other supposed lake monsters in Scotland and elsewhere, though its description varies from one account to the next. Popular interest and belief in the animal's existence has varied since it was first brought to the world's attention in 1933. [FULL DOCUMENTARY]
Cryptid Marine Mammals You’re probably well aware of the story of the famous Loch Ness Monster. Well, similar reports of long-necked, plesiosaur-like cryptids have been coming from various parts of the world. Scientists attribute such reports to the evolutionary theory, which implies that certain pinnipeds could take on the form of the extinct plesiosaurs, and yet avoid being affected by cold waters.
