|Crimean War Monstrosities|
|Theories|| · Spirit|
The Crimean War Monstrosities were a group of flying humanoid cryptids reportedly sighted multiple times during the Crimean War, which raged from 1854 to 1856.
The creature was described as being a gigantic, headless, crow-like animal. Other witnesses described them as humanoid bats or birds, similar to the famous Mothman or the Black Bird of Chernobyl.
There are several explanations as to what the creature could be. Theories include:
- An undiscovered species (a Cryptid)
- A spirit
- A demonic presence
- According to one report, the five soldiers who were lurking in the battlefield that night were not Russian, but Turkish. The sentries on duty even described their uniforms as being like robes, complete with turbans. According to these sentries they were shocked by five approaching, and screaming, Turkish soldiers running directly at them from out of the pitch black night. The sentries opened fire on the screaming Turkish thinking that they were attacking soldiers but soon saw the reason for their screams, when, out of the darkness, seemingly chasing the Turkish, the Russian sentries saw a gigantic swarm of bat like creatures.
