Welcome to Globster, Blobs and more

The blog’s topic


Desk of GBAM-author Markus Hemmler

This non-commercial, popular-scientific blog is about dead sea monster, sea serpents, whatsit, whazzit, globster, blobs, pseudo-plesiosaur and-octopus, dinosaur or whatever they’ve been called and their acknowledged or assumed identification. Equally what’s the label for those animals, if you read about them on this blog they generally have to be …

  • marine creatures …
  • dead and at best decomposed and decayed and …
  • someone initially called them sea monster, sea serpent … (see above).

As the “more” in “Globster, Blobs and more” (in short: GBAM) indicates, exceptions from those general rules allowed, but they are probably either written by guest authors or involve cases with a special interest of mine like (German) submarines and sea monsters.

The blog

Cupboard including source files

Source material: 10 files cetacea, 10 files basking sharks, 2 files of other species and 2 files unsolved cases (not in picture).

As usual for blogs you can find all the articles from newest to oldest from the main site, by date, with tags etc. But with increasing count of articles there will be also a menu with the two main categories “Cetacea” (the science name of the group which includes whales and dolphins) and “Cetorhinoidae” (the science name … basking sharks) as approximately 90 percent of sea monsters turn out to be whales or basking sharks. They’re followed by “Others” (other sharks, ribbon fishes, sea elephants etc.) and “Open cases” for actually not or not satisfactory enough explained sea monster cases (again: in my opinion).

I will be happy if anyone has a comment (please note that the comments are moderated), a suggestion to improve an article or a serious guest article matching the blog’s topic (no guarantee for publishing).

And finally… there’s one important plea:

GBAM needs you!

I’m asking everyone for information regarding the blog’s topic!

  • Do you own or know about an unknown/known photo/newspaper-clip of a sea monster carcass?
  • Have you or your relatives or acquaintances been involved in a certain case?
  • Do you work in a natural history museum or library which own parts of a former “sea monster” in their collection?

Please don’t hesitate to contact me!
