  • (explosion)

  • (coughing)

  • - Ta-da

  • So, being a guy that's into sci-fi and fantasy,

  • I've come across some pretty bad-ass creatures,

  • but I always figured that they were just the product

  • of some writer's imagination.

  • I never thought to actually look into

  • whether or not the creatures from these

  • movies and video games were ever real,

  • until now, and oh man, I wish

  • I would have done this sooner.

  • So if you're into this stuff like I am, keep watching

  • because I'm about to give you

  • 10 Mythical Creatures that Actually Existed.

  • Prepare to nerd out.

  • Number one is dragons.

  • Native to Australia, the Megalania existed

  • 30 to 40 thousand years ago, and is

  • an ancient relative of the Komodo dragon

  • that grew up to 26 feet in length

  • and weighted up to 4300 pounds.

  • It couldn't breath fire or fly,

  • but it did have a poisonous saliva

  • that contained a blood thinner that

  • would cause its victims to bleed to death.

  • - Dragons actually exist?

  • I have to call my D and D buddies.

  • - Just, no.

  • Number two is the Imoogi.

  • Originating as a Korean legend, an enormous

  • python was in fact found in South America.

  • This gigantic titanoboa was so huge

  • that it was 46 feet long and weighted over a ton.

  • It also had a constrictive force of 400 PSI

  • and could swallow a human whole without

  • showing any bulge.

  • Man, I want to know this thing's secret

  • just for when I go out to all-you-can-eat sushi restaurants,

  • cause I mean, after a dinner like that,

  • ain't no hiding that bulge.

  • Number three are the Amazons.

  • Amazons were a mythical tribe

  • exclusively made of fierce women warriors.

  • Graves that were discovered in Eurasia

  • revealed battled-damaged female skeletons

  • that were buried with bows, swords and other weapons.

  • This is an extremely exciting find

  • whether you're a historian or a fan of the show

  • Xena Warrior Princess, because there were

  • Amazons on the show.

  • So I heard; I never watched the show.

  • I heard people talking about it.

  • Shut up.

  • Number four is the Dire Wolf.

  • Dire Wolves existed beside early man

  • and were much larger, stronger and had

  • sharper teeth than the wolves of today.

  • Interestingly, there were just one of a class

  • called Megafauna which were a large or giant

  • class of animals, including humans,

  • and believe it or not, some of these giant humans

  • still exist today including Rosie O' Donnell,

  • Roseanne Barr and Kevin Smith.

  • They're fat.

  • Number five is the African Unicorn.

  • This unique animal has an upper body of a deer,

  • a lower body of a zebra, but is actually

  • a specie of giraffe.

  • Whoa

  • I think what's most cool is that

  • this creature still exists today

  • in Equatorial Africa.

  • Even though it doesn't have a horn

  • like you would expect from a unicorn,

  • it's still clearly magical, I mean look at it.

  • It could change its appearance at will.

  • That or it got into a plantation

  • of some crazy African drugs.

  • By the way, if there's any viewers in Africa

  • watching right now, can these drugs regrow hair?

  • Private message me.

  • Number six in the Kraken.

  • Recently a colossal squid was discovered

  • in the southern ocean which closely

  • resembles the legendary Kraken.

  • Measuring 46 feet long, it not only has suckers,

  • but it's limbs are lined with rows of sharp hooks

  • each having three points.

  • Man, it's really unfortunate that

  • this was found only 1000 kilometers south of Tokyo.

  • I mean, first Godzilla, and now this?

  • You Japanese really have some bad luck

  • with the whole giant monster thing.

  • Number seven are Beserkers.

  • Hailing from Northern Europe,

  • Beserkers were known for fighting

  • in a nearly uncontrollable trance-like fury

  • which gave rise to the English phrase going berserk.

  • It's believed that their fearless strength

  • and unstoppable blood lust was cause by

  • either working themselves into a rage

  • or taking intoxicating drugs before battle.

  • In fact, I know a little bit about what it takes

  • to get worked up into a rage.

  • Happens to me every time I call my cell phone company.

  • (bleep) ers.

  • Number eight is Moby Dick.

  • The story of Moby Dick was actually inspired

  • by a real sperm whale named Moca Dick.

  • This whale was so bad ass, that it destroyed

  • over 100 whaling ships that tried to kill it,

  • including once taking on three at a time and surviving.

  • Really though, his name was Moca Dick

  • and he was a sperm whale?

  • Okay, no.

  • You know what?

  • There's probably a black porn star joke there,

  • but I'm just not going to touch it.

  • Number nine are Hobbits.

  • Tricky little Hobbits.

  • The remains of nine bodies resembling Hobbits

  • were discovered in the Indonesian island of Flores

  • dating back 12 to 18 thousand years ago.

  • Each skeleton was only three feet tall

  • and had a skull about one third

  • the size of a normal human's.

  • Weighting only up to about 80 pounds,

  • it's believed that that these were

  • a separate specie of human kind of like Neanderthals.

  • Just don't ever actually call them Hobbits

  • if you're ever tested on this subject

  • because, you know...

  • You shall not pass!

  • I always wanted to do that.

  • And finally, number 10, Dracula.

  • Believe it or not, Dracula was based off of a real man

  • that lived less than 500 years ago

  • called Vlad the Impaler.

  • He was a Romanian prince that would

  • torture and kill his enemies by impaling them.

  • He didn't have fangs or could fly

  • like the vampires in today's pop culture,

  • but he did consume the blood of

  • his enemies in various ways.

  • But I wouldn't worry; I'm sure vampires

  • aren't around that much anymore,

  • or are they?

  • (evil laughter)

  • Boo.

  • Anyways, that's all for this video guys.

  • and other than that, I will see you guys next Saturday

  • I'm not a vampire.
