What is a “cryptid”? What meanings are in circulation? Here’s the definition, as I noted in my 1999 book, co-authored with Jerome Clark, Cryptozoology A to Z. I share it with those on Cryptomundo that are not aware of the full meaning. And throw it out for discussion and debate by those that feel it […]

Giganto: The Real King Kong… Part I

Posted by: Rick Noll on December 16th, 2005

(Beck – Farewell Ride) Well the show finally aired and so I can give some of my own thoughts on it and how it came about now. I was kind of on a gag order not to discuss the work until it actually got aired. I am very happy that the show came out the […]

Department of the Interior, Fish and Wildlife Service Recognize Bigfoot?

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on December 16th, 2005

Several years ago I either found a document on the web, or someone sent it to me that was a press release from the Department of the Interior & Fish and Wildlife Service that was titled Are We Ready for “Bigfoot” or the Loch Ness Monster? It was dated December 21, 1977. I do not […]

“Chupacabras: It’s sort of like Jennifer Lopez, kind of cross-cultural.” – Loren Coleman, as quoted by ABC News, 1999. “What’s unique about the Chupacabra is that it’s crossing languages, which I think shows how small our world is getting,” says Coleman, reached by phone from his home in Portland, Maine. “It’s sort of like Jennifer […]

Yes, Florida Frank, There Are Skunk Apes

Posted by: Loren Coleman on December 15th, 2005

Florida Frank Falls Flat Flinging Follies After the Tampa Tribune printed a relatively positive article touching on Cryptozoology and the work of cryptozoologist-educator Scott Marlowe, the very same Tampa Tribune decided to publish a highly opinionated, wrong-headed, rebuttal column by Frank Sargeant. Entitled "Don’t Buy Into Skunk Ape Tale," Sargeant makes it seem like cryptozoologists […]

King Kong’s CZ In-Joke

Posted by: Loren Coleman on December 14th, 2005

Went to see Peter Jackson’s incredible film King Kong. I’m not going to spoil it for anyone but there’s an inside humorous reference to a cryptozoological creature before King Kong is actually encountered by most of his pursuers. Someone had repeated to me that this cryptid was a recent beast (thus out of place in […]

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on December 14th, 2005

A couple of reports out of Scotland the last few days… First, the biggest earthquake to hit Scotland in 20 years struck about 11:30 PM last Saturday night. It was only a force-three quake.

The New York Daily News on Sunday, December 11, 2005, published an article entitled "N.Y. king in Kong match," in which they included some cryptozoological commentary from a cryptozoologist supposedly named "Lore Croghan." The article had this to say: "We aren’t talking about Derek Jeter fleeing autograph seekers, after all," says cryptozoologist Lore Croghan, who […]
