Cryptomundo is a cryptozoological news and interest website. We post news items that are of interest to the field of cryptozoology.
We also post fun items, such as the crypto comics.
Not everything posted here at Cryptomundo is necessarily thought provoking. Sometimes it’s just for fun.
Case in point the recent Pterodactyl video I recently posted here on Cryptomundo.
I never purported that it was real. I didn’t even offer an opinion. I just presented it for the readers of Cryptomundo and asked “Is it real, or is it hoaxed? Watch the video here on Cryptomundo and judge for yourself!”
Most of the Cryptomundo readers saw it for what it was, entertainment.
However, some of the readers did not.
It blows my mind that you would even post junk like this on your site.
And people say Biscardi is bad!Sylense
I hope Loren isn’t turning into Jamie Maussan. This screams FAKE out loud! Please Loren, provide us with media that isn’t produced with a video editing program. “If this videotape doesn’t prove that the Biblical version of Creation is True, I don’t know what does.” UHH, CRAZ! I’m at a loss for words.IMAdamnALIEN
I am still baffled by Craig posting this however.IMAdamnALIEN
Look, I like a good hoax as much as anyone, but I see a real threat here of Cryptomundo losing any kind of credibility in the field if you guys don’t filter -some- of these out. A blobsquatch is one thing, but if you’re going to start posting stuff like this, incredibly obvious, over the top fakery, I think you’re walking into dangerous territory. Have some respect for your readers and for the field of cyrptozoology: if you insist on posting crap like this, at least describe it honestly as a source of humor instead of ‘Is it real or is it hoaxed?’ NO science ever advanced based on pointless sensationalism.mrdark
Some people are under the impression that the site is solely Loren Coleman. See the above example where Loren was blamed for the Pterodactyl video post.
Cryptomundo, as I stated above, is merely a website where we, Loren Coleman, John Kirk, Rick Noll and myself, post items of cryptozoological interest.
It is not a research organization.
The four of us are involved with cryptozoological research, but it is not through Cryptomundo.
Loren has investigated and documented items of cryptozoological interest for 5 decades now.
John Kirk co-founded the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club in 1989 and been actively investigating and researching since then.
Rick Noll has been involved with Sasquatch investigation and research since 1969.
I co-founded the Texas Bigfoot Research Center in 1999. As stated here previously on Cryptomundo, we have reformed as a new non-profit organization, the Texas Bigfoot Research Conservancy in January of this year.
Those are the avenues of our collective cryptozoological research, not Cryptomundo.
Here at Cryptomundo, we merely report on the research. Hopefully, the majority of the readers here at Cryptomundo get it. We present it for your perusal.
Co-founder of Cryptomundo in 2005. I have appeared in or contributed to the following TV programs, documentaries and films: OLN's Mysterious Encounters: "Caddo Critter", Southern Fried Bigfoot, Travel Channel's Weird Travels: "Bigfoot", History Channel's MonsterQuest: "Swamp Stalker", The Wild Man of the Navidad, Destination America's Monsters and Mysteries in America: Texas Terror - Lake Worth Monster, Animal Planet's Finding Bigfoot: Return to Boggy Creek and Beast of the Bayou.
