New Amphibians Discovered in Goa

Posted by: Loren Coleman on November 25th, 2007

A relative of the recently found Gegeneophis mhadeiensis (shown above), is the newly discovered Gegeneophis goaensis. In the February 1999 issue of National Geographic Magazine, Goa was compared with the Amazon and Congo basins for its rich tropical biodiversity. It still is giving up some of its secrets. This new animal discovery is from Goa […]

More Trailcam Weirdness

Posted by: Loren Coleman on November 25th, 2007

Of course, we all want a good photo of a Bigfoot via one of these automatic trailway cameras. In the meantime, here are a few more amazing things being caught with these trailcams. Cryptomundo member PhotoExpert generously passes along more from his collection of trailcam photographs he’s gathered over the years. Unfortunately, he has no […]

Fortean Anthologist Peter Haining Dies Suddenly

Posted by: Loren Coleman on November 24th, 2007

“Why doesn’t somebody reprint Peter Haining’s book on Springheel Jack?” is a question Fortean author Robert Schneck asked in 2005. Maybe some publisher will now. Peter Haining, 67, has died suddenly. Peter Haining wrote and edited so many Fortean and related books, I would imagine that most people reading this notice own at least one […]

Bigfoot in the Sequoias?

Posted by: Loren Coleman on November 24th, 2007

These kinds of events happen probably more than we know. Before the internet and YouTube, this would all have merely been something people would talk about within the family. Now, it’s on the web. The sound quality is extremely low on this video, in spite of the title being called “Bigfoot Yell.” The track may […]

Ivory-Billeds & Idaho Grizzlies: Coming Quests

Posted by: Loren Coleman on November 24th, 2007

This file photo shows a grizzly bear moving through the brush in Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming. (Courtesy: Yellowstone National Park) In September 2007, a black bear hunter “mistakenly” shot and killed a grizzly bear in the “rugged Idaho terrain near Kelly Creek about three miles from the Montana border,” according to the Associated Press. […]

First Thai Tomistoma Since 1970

Posted by: Loren Coleman on November 23rd, 2007

Some unique crocs have been seen in Thailand. But as opposed to merely “out-of-place” or escaped reptiles, it might signal a recovery of a locally “extinct” species. Loosely using the term “gavial,” some form of a gavial or gharial is the source of this attention. Either it is the true gharial, Gavialis gangeticus, identified as […]

Weird Trail Cam Photo

Posted by: Loren Coleman on November 23rd, 2007

With all the talk during this fall of what is caught and what is not on trail camera operations, how strange can trail cam photographs be? Take a look at this one, above. That is a raccoon (Procyon lotor) on top of or riding a wild boar (Sus scrofa). I guess there are some unusual […]

Holmes & the Lost World

Posted by: Loren Coleman on November 23rd, 2007

The four day weekend is turning into a monster. No time to yourself. The turkey sandwiches, turkey stew, and turkey anything are getting old. The cries to go shopping are reaching new heights. All the football games were too predictable. There’s not been a good Sasquatch flap or decent African dinosaur report all year. Otters, […]

Overkill? Or Really Orang?

Posted by: Loren Coleman on November 22nd, 2007

This is the trap being deployed for the “fox squirrel” or “spider monkey,” reportedly theorized to be in Baker County, Florida, instead of the originally-described “orangutan.” What is this equipment usually employed to trap? Bears.

Ponik Needs Your Love

Posted by: Loren Coleman on November 22nd, 2007

In The Field Guide to Lake Monsters, Sea Serpents, and Other Mystery Denizens of the Deep (NY: Tarcher/Penguin, 2003), I wrote that the aquatic cryptids seen in Lac Pohénégamook are “supposedly” some of “the ugliest-headed monsters around.” But “ugly” does not translate into disrespect or unloved in my book, and perhaps it is time to […]

South China Tiger Update: It’s A Fake

Posted by: Loren Coleman on November 22nd, 2007

The controversy over the authenticity photographs of the believed-to-be-extinct wild South China Tiger seemed to have come to an end on Friday when a netizen posted online what he claimed was a “convincing proof” that the pictures are fakes – a New Year picture of a tiger that hangs on the wall of his home. […]

Florida Confusion Continues

Posted by: Loren Coleman on November 22nd, 2007

My gosh, now the media is throwing in Chupacabras to explain the Orangutan-Fox Squirrel-Spider Monkey reports from Baker County, Florida. Also, the Skunk Ape, Bigfoot, and something called the “Taylor Wild Man” are being pitched too. At least, they haven’t caught on to the Cryptomundian theory that it is a tree-stranded otter. Mark Lyons observes […]

Venezuela’s Invasion of Guyana Threatens CFZ Trek

Posted by: Loren Coleman on November 21st, 2007

Forget the giant snakes and Didi, it may be humans that undermine the CFZ’s excursion to the wilds of South America. If the five members of the Center for Fortean Zoology were not having enough trouble from heat stroke, broken fingers, and other mishaps, now the country of Guyana is falling apart. It’s not something […]
