cryptid-wendigo:

The Congo’s J’ba Fofi makes large webs that are similar to those of a trap-door spider. This spider can have a leg span of up to 6 feet, so one can imagine the size of their webs. This creature is said to typically prey on animals such as small antelope, birds, monkeys, and other small prey species, however, they sometimes do go for humans.

Air Rods

Origin: Supposedly first filmed March 19, 1994 by Jose Escamilla in Midway, a town outside of Roswell, New Mexico.

Alternate names: flying rods, skyfish, rods, solar entities

Air rods aren’t visible to the naked eye, and are only visible in photographs. There is much debate about what air rods really are; living beings, alien lifeforms, optical illusions of flying bugs or debris, and other interpretations have been made. Jose Escamilla has compiled a lot of evidence on air rods, and been an influential contributor to studying the subject. In June 2005, video of air rods were caught by surveillance cameras at Tonghua Zhenguo Pharmaceutical Company in Tonghua City, Jilin Province in China. This intrigued scientists at the facility, enough to set up traps near the camera but all they found in the traps were ordinary flying insects.
