A Cryptozoologist at Rancho La Brea

Posted by: Loren Coleman on October 11th, 2010


A trip into the Pleistocene means some associated megafauna moments. Here are some images from some time at the George Page Museum at the La Brea tar pits:

The Panthera atrox at the entrance.

With Dr. Shelley M. Cox, the museum’s leading expert in short-faced bears (Arctodus).

About Loren Coleman
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.

    My office is right across the street from the Pits and the Page museum. Great place, and I go there frequently!

    Thanks for sharing that. I geek-LOVE that place. Do they still have in their giftshop the cast metal copper plated replicas of the Columbian Mammoth and the Smilodon? That Charles R. Knight artwork is iconic.
