Hi! I'm from Mexico. We have indigenous traditions and Spanish traditions too about monsters and creatures from another "dimensions". I think the indigenous culture have a lot of tales with a social purpose. Before there was more conscience about the "common home", the relationships between us and the natural beings. The creatures in the tales normally are guardians of the nature, water's guardian, earth's guardian, cave's guardian and so on.

I don"t believe in monsters. It"s only our fears. One day someone saw smt strange & told ab it someone else. And day by day this became a tale. But it"s beautiful legend like tales ab trolles in Norway, like stories ab water-spirits, home-spirits, wood-goblins, tales ab Koschei & Baba-Yaga in Russia in country where i live. But may be i"m wrong & Baba-Yaga exists))) My kid believe in it. In Russia we have so many fairytales. But in these fairytales we haven"t monsters but have fairytales creatures. Some of them kind & any not.

Hi. I`m so happy that i have found your website, i can`t even imagine how to live without listening to podcasts , please never finish them .
I think the monster exists but it was not  a real monster and it was a creature that used to live in sea/river and people who saw them for the first time supposed the creature as a monster . I saw some creatures which live under the ocean in a very deep place of it and they are not look like a fish , some of them are huge ,some are unusual , so i think if i lived in the past, i would call them monsters. Yes these are monsters but not like the monsters in movies , and i saw that documentary in bbc  .And i live at Iran in Tehran.
Regards

Hi Saeedeh,
I hope you can live without our podcasts, otherwise I would feel too nervous about your health to go on holiday!
Thank you for your nice comment, it's great to hear from you.

The Loch Ness monster    ;
I think the Loch Ness monster  isnt exist because . today We have all the insruments  to dicover anything in anywhere in the sea .on the land or in the space.
So i cant believe that there is an animal lives in the lake .but I think that people alwys like to read and to writ about this kind of animals like monsters .dinosaurs ...ect

hi All
Good morning
Actually , i am not  believe that longness have been live at the lake , i think it just legend or monster imagination or may be just way to attraction all visitor/tourist to go there,
