Bengal Giant

Posted by: Loren Coleman on August 26th, 2011

This is another example of a True Giant account being found in an old newspaper.

Singapore’s The Straits Times

26 July 1936, page 15

Thanks to Paul Cropper for this item.

This Bengal Giant seen in 1936 does not appear to have been too dissimilar from the one pictured on the cover of True Giants: Is Gigantopithecus Still Alive?.

Loren Coleman About Loren Coleman
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.

    So are we looking at yet another species or just some crazy? I forget my hominogy…how big were the earlier versions of man? Apes? (I’m a USO guy, not a bigfoot-ologist).

    I don’t think 18 feet is anywhere in the fossil record…but then again the fossil record ain’t exactly complete either…or even close
