Here Comes The First Monster Sighting of 2010 - The Maine Tree Creature

From this years "The Top Ten Hottest Monsters Of 2009 " list, it is easy to assess that many of you out there really dig mysterious monsters, cryptids, and legendary creatures.

To be precise, three such critters managed to creep into this years list, including the Gryphon (9), Bigfoot (5) and the Ogopogo (2).

That's two cryptids in the top 5!

Okay, I get it, you love cryptozoology. Which just happens to work out good for me, because I love mysterious creature sightings, so adding more stories to MIN should be easy....maybe natural.

Seeing a Sasquatch standing in front of your car can make you more than just a little curious about the subject.

Well, as luck would have it, we have our first 'new' monster for 2010, "The Maine Tree Creature."

A listener to 'Coast to Coast AM' submitted the above photo of rather large and mysterious looking creature to the shows website over the weekend.

A first glance would lead you to believe that the animal in question looks like a mini-Sasquatch or some other form of out-of-place primate chillin' on a tree branch in Maine.

Level headed folks point out that the critter is most-likely a North American Porcupine, which is the second largest of all rodents, and can grow to 25 to 40 inches long and weigh up to 40 pounds.

Hmmmm......very possible.

Though, the animal in the photo seems to be covered in fur, not quills.

Then again, it's hard to tell from just a photograph.

Does, America have a new monster? I wouldn't want to go that far.....yet.

If more of these creatures start showing up then we may be on to something. Until then lets just say "Happy New Year! Mr. Porcupine!"

Oh, and if your in Maine....just for safety's sake.....keep your kids indoors.
