Conspiracy Theories, Cover-Ups, & Elusive Beasts
The Loch Ness Monster, Big Foot, Area 51, Chupacabra, Illuminati...What other stories are there that are supposed to be a myth, but yet there's just a slim chance that they could be true? And, please, I don´t mean this to be a debate to argue if they are true or not, I'm just interested in the stories, particularily, those outside of the U.S.
There are endless conspiracy theories and cover-up theories. There are also hundreds, if not thousands, of mythical beasts.
It sounds like you are most interested in cryptids (animals studied by cryptozoologists, like bigfoot or Loch Ness monster) , rather than mythical beasts (Unicorn, griffin, minotaur).
Here's a list of some: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_cryptids
Does North America's "Bigfoot" have family members in the Himalayan "Yeti" or "Abominable Snowman"?
Who knows the family tree?
My favorite (which is actually linked to Spanish) is cattle mutalations. Believe it or not, my Spanish AP exam in 1991 required us to tell a story in Spanish based on a little cartoon, and the cartoon was space aliens meeting a cow in a farmer's field.
Indeed there are thousands of conspiracy theories American and international. To name a few: The Bilderbergs, Conspiracy theories about the Federal Reserve, The Trilateral Comission, the legends around Nicola Tesla, they are literally endless. Some are good reading. All you need do is an internet search and you'll have more than you can read in a lifetime. As for animals, since this is a Spanish learning website, the Mexican Chupacabra or "goat sucker" that reportedly sucks goats dry of blood. Enough fun, now I need to get back to learning Spanish. Best wishes.
La Llorana is told and watched for in the mountains of northern New Mexico. I don't know where else she is wandering and crying.
What about "la Llorona", wandering around crying for her lost children?
There has to be more than just this...
