Are Borneo Pygmy Elephants Javan?

Posted by: Loren Coleman on April 19th, 2008

Borneo’s pygmy elephants may be descendants of an extinct Javan elephant race, saved by chance by an 18th century ruler, according to a new study just released. The study suggests that a small number of opposite-sex elephants can produce a thriving progeny of thousands if left undisturbed on an island, giving fresh hope to conservationists […]

Dan Rozek of the Chicago Sun-Times reports that more sightings of large felids are being recorded in the Chicago area: Searchers swooped low over the Skokie Lagoons in a helicopter today to look for signs of a cougar after several reported sightings of a big cat there — including a sighting Tuesday, a day after […]

Posted by: Loren Coleman on April 18th, 2008

The Assiniboine live in Montana. There’s breaking news from near Fort Belknap of new Bigfoot rumblings: There was a mystery afoot — err … a Bigfoot — and if anyone was going to solve it, it would be Ruben Horseman. The volunteer fire chief and self-described snoop, Horseman’s phone regularly rings when his Hays neighbors […]

Manatees In Merbeings Documentary

Posted by: Loren Coleman on April 17th, 2008

Did a posting of an old “Mermaid” account at Cryptomundo in 2007, stimulate the involvement of a certain location in an upcoming documentary film? According to the Ashley Park Press, this notice was referenced: “In 1869, two Toms River fishermen reportedly caught a monster resembling a mermaid. A copy of the report is available [here]” […]

Cryptomundo Mermaids Do Exist

Posted by: Loren Coleman on April 17th, 2008

Recently someone emailed in a complaint: “I can’t help noticing the dearth or paucity of Mermaid information on an otherwise very complete site. Even I, a rank amateur, keep stumbling across references to live sightings. Even if some do turn out to be Dugongs, it seems as if some are less easy to explain — […]

Anna McClain Memorial Fund

Posted by: Loren Coleman on April 16th, 2008

Anna McClain (future Coleman), at 17 years of age, a few years before she gave birth to Loren Coleman. First it was a slight cold on Tuesday, April 8th, followed by her quick death on Wednesday, April 9th. I’m in a bit of a shock. My mother always helped and encouraged my cryptozoology, including the […]

Hobbits Walk Was Distinctive

Posted by: Loren Coleman on April 16th, 2008

Tolkien’s hobbits walked an awful long way, but the real “hobbit”, Homo floresiensis, would not have got far. Its flat, clown-like feet probably limited its speed to what we would consider a stroll, and kept its travels short, says Bill Jungers, an anthropologist at the State University of New York in Stony Brook. “It’s never […]

Devilish Melanistic Panthers

Posted by: Loren Coleman on April 16th, 2008

Relatively old-fashioned wildlife and outdoors reporters are few and far between today, and especially in big city papers. But San Francisco is lucky enough to have one: Tom Stienstra. Stienstra has a history of being open-minded enough to pen and tackle thoughtful pieces on Sasquatch, which seems reasonable concerning his location. He also appears to […]

Cougar Killed in Chicago

Posted by: Loren Coleman on April 15th, 2008

“Cougars don’t exist in Illinois,” we have all been told for years, especially before two 21st century incidents began to alert people to the notion eyewitnesses seeing the cats weren’t crazy. “They are extinct in the state,” officialdom still claimed. Now, beyond belief, a cougar or puma or mountain lion, whatever you wish to call […]

Dragons Descend on Alberta

Posted by: Loren Coleman on April 15th, 2008

Reports of dragon sightings in Canada are to be taken seriously. A traveling exhibition from two primarily French locations will soon be visiting the Royal Alberta Museum. Due to the fact this will be its first installation in an English-speaking site, there may be more attention to it throughout North America rather immediately. As part […]

No “Bigfeet” Discovered

Posted by: Loren Coleman on April 15th, 2008

It is good to know that the legacy of Cryptomundo is assisting the literary world of Oregon’s Portland Mercury. Courtney Ferguson writes today about his search for whether “Bigfeet” is the correct word to use: After spending 10 minutes searching for the proper plural form of Sasquatch, I grew impatient. Was it Sasquatches? Could I […]
