The Dungavehooter is a mammalian creature from the tales of the lumberjacks of North America. It lived in Maine and in the upper peninsular of Michigan. It has a similar shape to an alligator but it has no mouth. Its nostrils are very large and has a stumpy legs and a short powerful tail. It makes no noise except a snort. It preys on the drunk rum-filled lumberjacks by hiding behind a bush. When a person stumbles by, the Dungavenhooter leaps out and knocks its prey to the ground with its tail. The Dungavenhooter then jumps up and down on its victim until gases are produced which it inhales in through its large nostrils.

Did you find Dungavehooter interesting? If you are skilled in art, then why not draw a scary or actioned-packed drawing of the Deadly Dungavehooter and send it to this website. Could such tales of recent sightings be simply false? Perhaps there is some truth in these serpents, Bigfoots, spirits and other creatures of the paranormal. Watch National Geographic's Paranormal: Bigfoot and decide for yourself. And if you're that way inclined with Bigfoot check him out in the horror movie Night of the Demon (1980). Oh but its not Bigfoot but a Fearsome Critter? Well take a look at them in Fearsome Critters by Richard Svensson or watch the Walt Disney film Paul Bunyan (1958) for some lumberjack folklore. Other contemporary mythical animals appear in the video game Red Dead Redemption: Undead Zombie Nightmare.
