** You'd be surprised how passive a predator can be when stalking its prey, especially since it has to avoid being seen or else its prey might flee--or worse, fight back. The later rampage could be explained by a mix of aggression (the vampires ''lived'' in that house, after all, and earlier one of them had attacked an exterminator because he had invaded its den) and the fact that its fruitless hunts were beginning to push it to its limits.

*** They could very well have been attempting to evoke the feeling of the "original" wolfman played by Lon Chaney, Jr., who actually still looked very human except for being covered in fur and acting like a wolf. Admittedly, that's unlikely, since the werewolf art on the official website shows the titular creature as looking essentially like a human (specifically [[spoiler: Sophie from the same episode]]), hair and all, except with a wolf-like snout. My best guess is that the werewolf was mid-transformation at the end of the episode, as suggested above.




to:

** The other two officers may not have been able to fire once they were attacked, either because they were panicking too much to think straight since they were being mauled by giant monkeys, or they may dropped their guns in the attack. It still doesn't justify why they weren't more on their toes given all the other evidence around them.




to:

*** At the end of the Bigfoot episode, the poacher attacks the park ranger, trying to break into the building she's in, but is suddenly attacked offscreen by the Bigfoot and found strung up in one of his own traps, reminiscent of ''Predator''. As to ''why'', it's often implied in fiction that Bigfoot as a species is sentient or at least intelligent, and ''Lost Tapes'' was no exception: the ranger notes that Bigfoot seems to recognize that she's trying to help and is watching over her in turn, then the poacher attacks her. [[BerserkButton Big mistake.]]

** The implication seems to be that the Thunderbird was carrying him off somewhere but dropped him, and perhaps didn't try again because there were lots of scary motor vehicles below it.

*** Humans are a species animals, you know, and since zombies seem to have been human... so there's the justification.

**** Seems to just be a trait of the show. A few episodes are named giving a name that more describes the creature instead of what the actual name is. The one focused on Megalania was called "Devil Dragon," the one about Black Shuck was "Hellhound," the giant centipedes were "Death Crawler." They probably think these names just sound cooler.

*** So why isn't it called "Owl Man"?

* In "Thunderbird", how come the kid managed to survive? Is the Thunderbird really crap at killing people?

*** I have a theory that the cultists [[CriticalResearchFailure didn't do their research]] and thought Quetzalcoatl wouldn't mind the sacrifice (I don't think it was ever said that a sacrifice ''couldn't'' summon Quetzalcoatl, just that he actively discouraged them). When they summoned him, he was so angry that he [[KarmicDeath killed them all as a punishment]].

** The sheriff gains some sanity points as he does at least try and hold the creature off, as well as being GenreSavvy enough to not leave a local legend completely out of the equation. The ATF agents, however, since they were stupid to be out in the open and under trees, Really the whole last 3 minutes is TooDumbtoLive incarnate

The ATF agents, however, since are particularly stupid. Not only do they were stupid to be ignore strange animal calls and ''mangled human bodies'', they go out in ''unarmed'' and, obviously, end up killed by the open and under trees, titular creatures.
