Mr. Simkin claims to have found something big, no huge, no colossal!
Here is an excerpt from his site.
I have been compiling my experiences below, because although we did not find an oil reserve we did find something quite out of the ordinary.
A huge expanse of the site now appears to have the remains of a very large animal. It’s massive, simply massive. I took some video of the creature, but am having difficulty accepting the size of the animal and can’t understand how it was never found before. The only thing that makes sense to me is that navigation of this area has always been difficult. Even though the island is at the center of the archipelago, it has always had very unfavorable ice conditions.
Only photos can truly do it justice. The animal appears to be a huge quadruped with horns much like a bull. In fact it looks to be a hybrid of a bull, woolly mammoth and a rhino – if such a thing existed. But its size is truly colossal. The horns are immense in dimension and protrude from the head with incredible length. The body is covered with a combination of coarse fur and what can best be described as ‘body armor’ (like an American armadillo) – protects its enormous joints and head.
Hope this intrigues you enough to visit his site.
If you go all the way to the bottom of the page you will find a video you can watch.
How big was Behemoth?
