instead of being a bunch of different

pills and doses you have to take every

02:46

day it is instead just one drink I

02:48

understand that being unhealthy is

02:50

pretty easy you don't have to do a lot

02:52

to let your body go to waste but now

02:53

thanks to ag1 you also don't have to do

02:56

water a spoonful of ag1 and you are

03:02

ready to go a1's been leading the pack

03:10

diet of just things I'm supposed to and

03:12

a crypted Iceberg series I'm going to

03:16

guess you probably don't either I've

03:18

noticed my energy and overall

03:19

disposition being better throughout the

03:20

day not because it's like ag1 some kind

03:23

of stimulant or caffeine or something

03:29

it needs to be having and if you're

03:30

worried that this tastes awful don't be

03:32

04:46

link is in the description and we are

04:47

back to the video we are going to go

04:49

ahead and get into it but as always

04:52

thank you for watching first up for tier

04:54

five we have the shovel headed whale

04:57

also known as the dimorphic beaked whale

05:00

this unidentified species of satation

05:02

was spotted around the Pacific coast of

05:04

Central America in the 1980s what is

05:07

unique about these sightings is not only

05:10

the specificity of the sightings

05:12

detailing coloration between different

05:14

members and even potential male female

05:16

distinguishment but the frequency as

05:19

over two dozen recorded sightings are

05:21

confirmed by local marine

05:23

biologists while it is likely a close

05:25

relative albeit comparatively sparse to

05:29

other be whale species the unique and

05:31

undocumented attributes of the creature

05:34

help make it to this Iceberg the shovel

05:36

headed whale is interesting because

05:39

aside from things like insects there's

05:41

not a lot of undocumented variations of

05:43

species in the modern world yet in the

05:46

1980s there was a series of sightings of

05:48

this one particular and unique kind of

05:50

well that has supposedly never been seen

05:53

again could this be the end remnant of

05:55

some genetic tree that has since gone

05:57

extinct could it be a unique coloration

05:59

of a known kind of well that the

06:01

connection between the two was just

06:02

never made who knows but either way it's

06:05

fascinating from a scientific

06:07

perspective from a crypted perspective

06:10

that is an immediate F tier it is just a

06:14

like beak well the thing that we know

06:16

exists and it's colored a little

06:18

differently in a region beat Wells

06:21

probably

06:21

are duh just like everything else down

06:24

in F tier it does not get bonus points

06:26

for maybe probably being real most

06:29

animals that exist are probably real so

06:31

sorry to all the Shovelhead whale

06:33

Defenders but this is not a safe space

06:35

so coming off of that unwarranted hatred

06:38

we have the kalanoro these bizarre

06:40

humanoids are said to inhabit the island

06:42

of Madagascar the kalanoro are said to

06:45

be short and hairy with fangs glowing

06:48

red eyes and backwards facing legs while

06:52

Legends outside of madag gasar describ

06:54

these creatures as malevolent with a

06:57

prosperity to steal and even kidnap

06:59

children

07:00

most local Legends describe them as

07:02

intelligent creatures capable of

07:04

granting humans mystical abilities

07:06

through wishes and implementation of

07:08

their hair several sightings in the late

07:11

1800s detailed encounters with the

07:13

creature and in 2006 a group of Navy

07:16

SEALs reported seeing a species of quote

07:19

unidentified Apes in the Democratic

07:22

Republic of Congo that many believe

07:24

match the kalanoro description from

07:27

Modern sightings to recurring Legends it

07:29

seems the tales of this small creature

07:32

are here to stay while initially the

07:34

curo matches a lot of other descriptions

07:36

from like South American or African

07:39

Legends of a group of people who live in

07:42

the jungle and are either very short or

07:44

covered in hair or what have you there

07:46

are some notable differences that I

07:48

think make it interesting for one the

07:50

glowing red eyes and the backward facing

07:52

legs is a lot of fun especially because

07:54

stories of people tracking the kalanoro

07:56

will often detail that they get lost

07:58

because they're following the track in

07:59

the wrong direction and yeah apparently

08:01

Lauren Coleman again the goat of crypto

08:03

zoology in 2006 released a story about a

08:07

bunch of Navy SEALs who said that they

08:10

were around the region and they came

08:12

across this group of like small primates

08:14

that walked around on hind legs and

08:17

appeared very humanoid and a lot of

08:18

people say This lends Credence to the

08:20

kalanoro stories it's really cool and I

08:22

like that the Legends kept alive it's

08:24

not super unique but I think it's Unique

08:26

enough so I'm calling it B tier which to

08:29

clar means I like it because B is on the

08:31

positive side of the spectrum I don't

08:33

know what kind of flashbacks you

08:35

teachers pets are getting out of fear of

08:37

seeing the letter B but B is a good

08:39

thing as is on the positive side of the

08:40

spectrum grow up after that we're moving

08:43

on to a pretty popular crypted or God I

08:47

guess the quatal codal also referred to

08:50

as Q or the wing serpent this giant

08:53

feathered serpent is one of the most

08:55

prominent deities in Aztec tradition

08:58

while much can be said about its

09:00

attributed godhood quat coto's role as a

09:03

crypted is equally interesting While

09:05

most known as an Aztec god Q has existed

09:08

long before the Aztec with many

09:11

communities in early meso America

09:13

hailing some form of bird reptile hybrid

09:16

perhaps then these people's unanimous

09:19

decision to bolster one image of

09:21

reverence wasn't spurred by decision but

09:23

by example perhaps the idols of quatal

09:26

codal are based on a creature known at

09:29

the time time but now extinct what

09:31

became of this potential Beast is of

09:34

course unknown but it wouldn't be the

09:36

only instance of Mega serpents within

09:39

the Americas so yeah yeah Q Wing serpent

09:42

deity in South American religions we're

09:44

all familiar with that involved a lot of

09:46

human sacrifice all that fun stuff but

09:48

it is yet another example of a community

09:52

or more specifically a religion taking

09:54

reverence of a giant serpent when

09:57

theoretically they should be separated

09:59

by tradition from other cultures around

10:01

the world that do that like for example

10:03

mesoamericans we wouldn't think would

10:06

have any interactions with say Southeast

10:09

Asian religions and one example we're

10:10

going to talk about in a bit but

10:12

nevertheless we see a lot of similar

10:14

faces and structures line up in their

10:17

religions all of that ties back into

10:19

Grand unified religious Theory and other

10:21

stuff I've talked about on the channel

10:22

before but what is most interesting

10:25

about the snake for crypted purposes is

10:28

again we see a group of people from

10:30

ancient times talking about these giant

10:33

snakes and given the legends of giant

10:35

snakes within South America and Central

10:37

America we've talked about earlier maybe

10:39

the reason they all decided to worship

10:41

giant snakes isn't because they talked

10:43

about it and came up with the idea but

10:44

maybe they saw an example of one and you

10:46

can go even further with that and say

10:49

that perhaps since we now believe a lot

10:51

of dinosaurs to be feathered or at least

10:53

partially feathered and be closer to

10:55

birds than like reptiles or something

10:57

then maybe were still existent dinosaur

11:01

species that early people saw that they

11:04

then incorporated into their Mythos and

11:05

blah blah blah you could take it as far

11:07

as you want so quatal not only works

11:09

well as an interesting crypted but as an

11:12

interesting example of where these

11:15

cultures and ideas came from so since

11:17

it's more of like a Mythos than a

11:19

crypted I can't really give it a tier

11:21

but it's pretty cool so I'll call it B

11:23

and also if you're wondering why I'm

11:24

including some things that are

11:25

explicitly from a mythology like I

11:28

talked about dwarves earlier quaz codal

11:30

and here in a little bit we're going to

11:31

talk about stuff from like Roman

11:33

mythology and stuff I mean really what

11:35

Cryptids are is American mythology right

11:38

or like stories of things like the the

11:41

Hoag and things like that that's a kind

11:42

of Mythology so if it's a creature that

11:44

was ever considered to be real I count

11:47

it just cuz I want to talk about it and

11:48

speaking of American Mythos next up we

11:51

have the tetr Thorns the torn is a

11:54

species of now extinct Superbird native

11:57

to the Americas their massive wingspan

11:59

could reach lengths of up to 25 ft and

12:03

weights of up to 200 lb dwarfing the

12:06

largest examples of still existent

12:08

flying birds naturally this begs the

12:12

question why if they were so dominant in

12:14

their class did they go extinct theories

12:18

range from Habitat to food sources yet

12:20

some believe they simply haven't

12:23

sightings of giant Birds above the

12:24

yandes clouds and legends of creatures

12:27

like the Thunderbird lead many to

12:29

believe that while scarce some members

12:32

of this species still roam the sky the

12:35

tetr torn is basically a historic

12:37

explanation to things like the

12:38

Thunderbird or to prove that creatures

12:40

that were at least Thunderbird adjacent

12:43

did at one point exist so while yes it

12:46

does have some aspects of some really

12:48

cool Cryptids like the Thunderbird at

12:50

the same time it's just a bird that did

12:52

exist that maybe still does and I get

12:54

it'd be it'd be more like a dinosaur

12:57

existing than it would something like

12:58

the th time still existing right so I

13:01

get that it's cooler than F tier but

13:03

it's still just a thing that did exist

13:05

that is argued to maybe still exist so

13:07

I'm calling it D tier and right after

13:09

that we have the glowing mud skipper in

13:12

June of 1986 Tyson Hughes a missionary

13:15

to Indonesia made a wholly unique

13:18

Discovery while on the serum Island

13:21

Tyson claimed to have spotted a large

13:23

cluster of mud skippers that glowed to

13:25

Bright pulsating red in the dim light of

13:29

the oncoming night Tyson attempted to

13:32

catch a specimen but upon approach the

13:34

mud skippers darted back into the water

13:37

never to be seen again to this day the

13:40

glowing mud skipper has never been seen

13:42

again but the detail of this one siding

13:45

leads some to believe a bioluminescent

13:47

species of mud skipper may exist in the

13:50

waters of Indonesia despite only being

13:53

seen one time the glowing mud skipper

13:55

has some plausibility right we know mud

13:57

skippers exist as amphibious creatures

14:00

and we know a lot of amphibious

14:01

creatures can have some form of

14:03

bioluminescence so it's not a huge

14:05

stretch to say that this creature might

14:07

be legitimate that being said it was

14:09

only spotted one time and as I just

14:11

explained this is a creature that could

14:13

very well exist and wouldn't change a

14:15

lot about society around us so for that

14:17

reason

14:19

it's I was going to say f tier but mud

14:22

skippers are kind of cute so D tier

14:25

after that we have another strange

14:26

little dude the agog way on appearance

14:30

the agagu of East Africa differs little

14:32

from Modern primates aside from reddish

14:35

hair and yellow skin this two to 5ft

14:37

tall specimen can be thought of as a

14:39

variant of chimpanzee their uniqueness

14:42

lies in their behavior as Witnesses

14:45

describe them as far more man than chimp
