    The most bizarre creature in Bosnia is probably the "Stranger", as it's called. People have caught and killed them before, but no one yet knows what it is:

    They're said to be hairless, and very agile. They can mimic the sounds of humans, not close enough that you think it's another person, but close enough that it bothers people deeply.

    They apparently eat anything smaller than themselves that they can catch. There's been stories of babies being snatched and this sort of thing. They're said to be just as comfortable under water as on land, and they can run very fast.

    That's all I know. I've never seen one, or know anyone who has.

    Sorry for the picture spam, I am very into the Paranormal, its hobby of mine (i are sceptical though) and I wanted to show my favorite beasties to research.

    The Tardigrade or "Water Bear" most notable for its ability to survive in extreme environments including a vacuum.

    Those "spiders" appear to either have 10 legs or huge mandibles.

    Just want to point out that Camel Spiders generally do not get any larger than 6inches. This picture above is a depth perception exaggeration. :D Sorry to all you dudes who wanted one of these to scare your girlfriend.

    I'm pretty sure there are two spiders there actually and each one looks about 6 inches not including leg span.

    Yes looks like two to me too. One's biting the other's arse. But, when these pictures first came out, people thought these spiders were a foot long and not inches. I'm sure you can see where the descrepancy comes into play. It's all in the angles, baby.
