The Honey Island Swamp monster is a humanoid cryptid that is reported to have been seen in Honey Island Swamp, Louisiana since 1963. It was first reported in 1963, when two hunters filmed this creature prowling the swamps. Its tracks are 3 toed, webbed feet. A possible solution for this creatures existence, is a mix of a chimp, and an alligator, the creature was also featured on a episode of Lost Tapes, where it attacked a hunter who survived the attack.
Standing over 7 feet tall and weighing between 400 and 500 pounds, the Honey Island Swamp Monster — also known as the Louisiana Wookie — is said to be covered in a thick coat of matted gray or brown hair. Its yellow eyes are seemingly reptilian, and the smell it emits has been called the stench of death. This primitive creature has long been blamed for the deaths of livestock and the mysterious disappearances of children in adjacent areas. Popular lore in the region is that the Honey Island Swamp Monster might be the horrifying product of a union between a chimpanzee and an alligator. And in the darkly primordial swamplands that must look much the same now as they did thousands of years ago, the existence of almost any creature seems possible — no matter how ominous. One of the strangest legends surrounding the Honey Island Swamp Monster revolves around a train wreck which allegedly occurred near the Pearl River in the early part of the 20th century. According to this legend, the train was full of exotic animals from a traveling circus, which fled into the swamps after the train derailed. While most of the creatures would soon parish in the harsh swamp land the legend goes on to tell us that a troop of chimpanzees managed to survive and even went as far as to interbreed with alligators. The result was a strange colony of reptilian like mammals.
