The Sasquatch Gang Sets Bigfoot Studies Back 30 Years

Posted by: Loren Coleman on October 28th, 2007

A promotional photograph for The Sasquatch Gang may say it all. From what I’ve seen after an extended view of all the trailers I could find, the contemporarily-framed film The Sasquatch Gang may be one of the lamest Bigfoot movies ever made.

As David Pescovitz wrote, “Loren Coleman detours into ‘cryptobotany.’” Ah, the path less traveled. Map: The entire distribution range of the Venus Flytrap. Did they come down in a meteorite impact?

Flaming Neandertals and Future Humans

Posted by: Loren Coleman on October 27th, 2007

It’s been quite a week in fossil hominid news. Gives you some pause about what might be around the corner, so to speak. Neandertals are now said to have been freckled and flame-haired, but then red-haired Neandertals were theorized earlier in Stan Gooch’s The Neanderthal Question (1977).

Jacobs’ Creature: A Bonobo?

Posted by: Loren Coleman on October 26th, 2007

Comparison posted on Boing Boing, which referred back to When A Mangy Bear Is Just A Mangy Bear, posted here. While I consider the “Jacobs’ Creature” seen in the widely publicized photos a mangy bear, speculations have been far afield from the animals that might actually match it.

Reports of mystery cats appearing to be maned, looking like “African lions,” constitute an entire chapter in Mysterious America and much of my attention down through the years.
