Nat Geo’s New Hominology Documentary

Posted by: Loren Coleman on August 26th, 2006

Recent speculation about National Geographic Channel making a new Bigfoot documentary in West Virginia is groundless. National Geographic Channel’s production team was there recently to do some spot re-creations of events that took place decades ago in East Asia, not about classic Bigfoot, but regarding Almas. I’ve been in communication with them for some time, […]

Orang Dalam Appearances

Posted by: Loren Coleman on August 25th, 2006

Slowly, recovery does happen. Overcoming the hoax of the drawings, the false anticipation, and then finally the fake photos of the “johor hominid” occurs. It is surely time to move on, and get back to venturing forward with a critical look at the imagery of possibly real hominoids in the rainforest of Malaysia. What are […]

Gorillas In Our Midst

Posted by: Loren Coleman on August 24th, 2006

A 19th Century illustration of Paul du Chaillu confronting a gorilla in Africa. Why would early newspapers in the United States use the term "gorilla" so frequently in the late 1800s when a large, hairy anthropoid was seen in nearby hollows and hills? Simply put, gorillas during that time were rather closely tied to American […]

The Thetis Lake Gillman is not the only aquatic anomaly that the RCMP found themselves dealing with in the course of their duties. The force has crossed paths with a number of aquatic cryptids known commonly as “lake monsters,” the most famous of which is the world-famous Ogopogo of Okanagan Lake, British Columbia. I am […]

Pre-1900 Gorilla Newspaper References

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on August 23rd, 2006

In Loren’s post here on Cryptomundo titled A Montana Monster, commenters asked if the term gorilla would be used in pre-1900 American newspapers. The question was also asked how this could be if the gorilla wasn’t discovered until 1902. I showed in my post Gorilla Discovery Timeline here on Cryptomundo, that the lowland gorilla was […]

2006 Texas Bigfoot Conference

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on August 22nd, 2006

With great sadness I must make the following announcement. As the result of several circumstances, the 2006 Texas Bigfoot Conference will not take place. Ironically, the cancellation decision was not the result of declining interest. In five brief years the annual conference grew quickly to become the largest event of its kind, attracting over 500 […]
