The map of Maine in the International Cryptozoology Museum pinpoints sightings with pins.
The blue pin here notes the ongoing reports of a large unknown in Rangeley Lake. The green indicator is for the 1985 sightings of a Bigfoot-type creature seen crossing a local woman’s porch several times in the Oquossoc, Maine area.
Michelle Souliere and I are hunting the historical Bigfoot in Maine for our book project (infamously named, well, Bigfoot in Maine), so send in your sightings, stories, and search info now!

Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading. 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.
