Swamp Monsters

There are some places that are just naturally spooky, even in the daylight. Swamps and bogs are just such places, there’s an air of mystery about them. The secretive dark waters (and what lives just beneath) fill us with a shuddersome sense of foreboding. Swamp water is often stagnant, and the stench of decay that often wafts from them, makes us associate swamps with sickness, misfortune, and even death. It’s a feeling that has remained a constant throughout history and is something that has inspired countless stories of ghosts, curses, and mysterious creatures. It doesn’t matter what country you live in, if there is a swamp, bog, or any type of wetland near you, odds are, if you dig deep enough, you’ll uncover some spooky legends about it.
