We have seen several mythical creatures on TV shows and movies like Bigfoot, Nessie, Dragons etc. There are several box office hit movies and books like The Hobbit, Harry Potter Series and The Chronicles of Narnia. But have you ever believed these to have been real? You would rather feel that it is hilarious and impossible that such creatures exist. But there are some groups of people who believed the existence of these animals. You wouldn’t believe that there were also sightings reported.

There is also the extra note of the creature having a special interest in beautiful ladies. The strange fact is that even though the organism can be taken back to the 17th century carvings, there are recent sightings reported.
