Dragon and Griffin Megaliths Dating Back 12,000 Years to End of Ice Age, or Earlier

By The Siberian Times reporter Unknown ancient people left the newly discovered fantastical creatures hewn of granite in Altai Mountains. This dragon drawn on a rock weighing a staggering 120 tons is believed to be exceptionally old, a megalith designed by a mysterious ancient population about whom we know nothing.   The unique megaliths were located at Mokhnataya mountain in Altai region, some 20 kilometres from the resort town of Belokurikha. Archeological researchers who found the granite monuments believe they date back deep into ancient history, and were put into position by prehistoric people, yet how they did so, and why, currently defies understanding. The heavyweight dragon seems to be the oldest known image of this mythical creature in Russia. It does not appear to be related to the Chinese style of portraying the mythical creature, but a unique Siberian depiction. The Hermitage museum in St Petersburg has been informed […] Read More

Giant Snowballs Mysteriously Appear in Siberia

Siberia once again proves that the further north you go, the closer you get to a frigid bizarro world where nothing is as it seems and nature messes with minds to make them believe in giants preparing for ice ball battles. Residents of Nyda, a village just north of the Arctic Circle on the Gulf of Ob, have been waking up recently to ever-increasing numbers of giant snowballs and ice balls mysteriously appearing on the beach – perfectly shaped and neatly lined up for miles. We have them only in one place. It’s as if someone spilled them. They are all of different sizes, from tennis balls to volleyball. Who plays volleyball in Siberia? That’s a question for another day. Who or what is making millions of perfect snowballs the size of volleyballs and larger (some measure up to one meter (3.3 feet) in diameter but there’s no sports […] Read More

200,000-Year-Old Soil Found at Mysterious Crater, A ‘Gate to the Subterranean World’

Locals have heard ‘booms from the underworld’ in a giant ravine but now scientists say it holds secrets of the planet’s past. Many Yakutian people are said to be scared to approach the Batagaika Crater – also known as the Batagaika Megaslump: believing in the upper, middle and under worlds, they see this as a doorway to the last of these.  The fearsome noises are probably just the thuds of falling soil at a landmark that is a one-kilometre-long gash up to 100 metres (328 feet) deep in the Siberian taiga.  Batagaika started to form in 1960s after a chunk of forest was cleared: the land sunk, and has continued to do so, evidently speeded by recent warmer temperatures melting the permafrost, so unbinding the layers on the surface and below. Major flooding in 2008 increased the size of the depression which grows at up to 15 metres per […] Read More

Russian Oil Scientists Blame Siberian Craters on Reindeer

When massive holes open up in the frozen Siberian ground for no obvious reason and continue to appear across the tundra at an alarming rate, the first causes that come to mind are collapsing ice plugs called pingos, methane exploding due to climate change, meteorites, missiles, UFOs, giant worms or underground aliens. That is, unless you’re a Russian petroleum industry scientist. According to a Russian website, scientists at a leading oil industry university are blaming the giant craters on hungry reindeer. Wait, what? A reindeer did this? According to an article in the Russian media source Vesti, Vladimir Melnikov – the Head of the Faculty “Earth’s Cryosphere” at the Tyumen State Oil and Gas University, said in a television interview that industry researchers have a new theory about the sinkholes … reindeer eating too much lichen. There was a grass and lichen cover on the Yamal Peninsula. But with […] Read More

Strange Slimes are Growing in Mysterious Siberian Lake

 Paul Seaburn Strange slimes – some green and some black – are growing in the world’s most pristine lake. Mysterious slimes are growing in a lake some believe to have aliens and UFOs in it. Unexplained slimes are affecting a lake that received a direct hit from a meteor just a few weeks ago. Those three slime-covered lakes are actually one – Lake Baikal in Siberia – and it may be time to say, “Uh-oh.” Researchers such as Dr. Oleg Timoshkin from the Limnology Institute of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences have been sounding the alarm about the various forms of slime on the once crystal-clear lake. Dead and dying sponges, which form a black slime, are covering the lake’s shores. Massive amounts of a green slime are covering southern parts of Lake Baikal. The slime isn’t limited to the surface either. Many areas of […] Read More

The Russian Island of Cannibals

With all of our civilization, intellect, and culture, it’s easy for us humans to fall into the sense that we are somehow superior to all around us. We like to think that it is these qualities, as well as all of our technology and sophistication that sets us apart from beasts, and with all of this self assurance of our higher place in the world it is easy to forget that we ourselves are animals. In our comfortable civilized society it is easy to lose sight of the fact that beneath all of our higher learning and intelligence there resides the primal, bestial drive to survive by any means, and base instincts no different than the fiercest animals that share this world with us. How much or how little would it take to strip us of our societal rules and calm mask of civilization, only to reveal the vicious […] Read More

7 Facts About Mummies That Are Seemingly Insane, But True

Another Piece of Eastern Europe Goes Down a Mysterious Hole

  First there were the mysterious craters appearing in northwestern Siberia, including some accompanied by flashes of light and one that may have had a spaceship at the bottom. Next, the city of Novokuznetsk in a different part of Siberia was hit by a slow-moving landslide that was followed by multiple craters opening up. Now there’s news from Ukraine that a huge hole has mysteriously appeared that is threatening to swallow a small town. What’s eating away at Eastern Europe? The latest crater opened up in late April 2015 in Solotvino, a small village in the Zakarpatska Oblast region of western Ukraine near the border with Romania. Residents say the 100 meters (330 feet) wide by 60 meters (200 feet) deep hole opened in just one day and swallowed seven houses in the process. The crater is getting larger by day and residents say it’s threatening other homes. What’s […] Read More

Dozens of new craters appear in Siberia

Siberia found itself at the center of one of last year’s biggest mysteries when a number of large holes started to appear in remote areas of the country back in July. Researchers spent months investigating the phenomenon and determined that the release of gas hydrates brought about by rising temperatures was the most likely explanation. Now however it turns out that the craters may be a lot more widespread in the region than had been previously believed. “We know now of seven craters in the Arctic area,” said Professor Vasily Bogoyavlensky. “Five are directly on the Yamal peninsula, one in Yamal Autonomous district, and one is on the north of the Krasnoyarsk region, near the Taimyr peninsula.” Scientists have speculated that there could be several dozen more craters spread across Siberia. “I would compare this with mushrooms: when you find one mushroom, be sure there are few more around,” […] Read More

Siberia’s Whale Bone Alley: Stonehenge’s Eerie Russian Cousin

  So, imagine this, if you will… You’re a deck hand on a North Atlantic fishing boat.  You’ve been at sea for a couple months, you’re tired, you’re cold, and you think the rest of the crew might be planning to eat you if the food stores run out.  Then one day, while you’re on deck doing whatever it is that deck hands do (I don’t think it has anything to do with caressing the deck with your hands, but I could be wrong), you glimpse something odd on the shore of a tiny island by which you just happen to be passing.  You see towering white spires, arranged in a double row all along the shoreline.  You see the huge skulls of giant whales dotting the landscape, and to you (being a lowly deck hand – I think deck hands are lowly, aren’t they?) it looks like the […] Read More

Geologists Reveal A Relationship Between Mysterious Siberian Craters & The Bermuda Triangle

Since it was discovered, a group of scientists have been working hard to figure out more secrets about one of the three mysterious holes that were spotted in Siberia last July. The scientists have new information about the mysterious crater on the Yamal Peninsula in Northern Siberia, which will hopefully help find where the holes came from. The scientists succeeded to reach the bottom of the newly-formed crater and made it back with some amazing pictures. The hole was believed to be formed in September 2013; there are many theories about the way this and other similar phenomenon were formed. Actually, this amazing, bizarre hole is not the only one in Siberia. A few weeks later, two other craters with mysterious sources were found relatively nearby. Speculations as to what caused the crater include meteorite impact, weapons testing and even aliens taking soil samples! Moreover, believe it or not, […] Read More
