2 (color). Janice pulling out hair from Fox’s hand when giving him some garlic. March 2004. This montage made by Lidia having used Igor’s photograph of Janice with Igor as a Bigfoot. She was standing in the same dress and position as then. After the first attempt of drawing Janice corrected several times some details until Lidia achieved similarity.
3. Lidia’s congratulation to Igor on his birthday of 2004. She drew my dream – to have an interview with Fox.
4. The case with occasional killing of gul’bi-yavan – Tajik name of wild man – in 1925 on the Pamir mountains. The case was described to the Commission of the Academy of Sciences by KGB General Michael Topilski

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.
