Surprise sighting

In which, for the first time ever, a gruntlebeast is captured on camera


You might have noticed the little mascot of this site – up there in the top right, at the time of writing, although that might change given time. Really really long-time readers might remember me explaining what it was, back in the mists of time. It is called a gruntlebeast, and, because of the considerable lack of evidence for their existence, is often believed to be mythical, invisible, extinct, very very shy, or possibly any combination of those four things. You will, I’m sure, have noticed the distinct lack of sightings of gruntlebeasts mentioned in the news.

However: things have changed! The FP Militant Invective Laboratories have, after many years of trying,* apparently managed to capture footage of a gruntlebeast in the wild. Indeed, the footage seems to confirm the conjectured “partially invisible” hypothesis, and also possibly the beast’s legendary shyness. See what you think:

A possible rare sighting of a gruntlebeast on video

Apologies for the low quality; but, well, if it wasn’t low quality, it wouldn’t be a proper controversial mythical-creature sighting, would it? The next task: get some evidence for its famous “Arrg kxrrt!” hunting call.

    He’s cute, isn’t he? Or is it a she?

    I’m not sure – so far science has not discovered their breeding habits.

  3. Clair says:

    Can we try and catch it? And a partner? Then we can have baby gruntlebeasts!

  4. […] thing about yesterday’s post: it gives you a good look at the state of one of our bookshelves. Not a good enough look to make […]

    I’m not sure about catching one – the invisibility makes them rather hard to trap.
