Mythical living things
 
The list seems to be end less, i remember a story an indian friend told me about a hunting party who shot at a peacock, the peacock caught the
shot and threw it back at the hunters, the thing is he realy believed it, and that there is such a thing as a gin/jin, and i remember a story of fleet foot jack, a being that could run from roof top to roof top, so any of you have some good howlers ?

There is the Jackalope, a common critter native to Texas, but rarely seen elsewhere by non Texans. Note that Jackalopes, espeically the large ones in Texas (where everything is bigger), roam in packs of 20 to 30 and are very dangerous.

Actually, a model was used. I think this was done by a doctor who confessed years later... Not sure now but the story finally came out.

My uncle loves to discuss the boxcar-sized catfish of the Mississippi (river)...and how Bill Clinton sold all the US's national parks to the UN and that man never landed on the moon.
