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.

    Do we have an footage of this creature? Anything? Blobpendaks? Fuzzy, grainy polaroids? Bad cellphone video? Foot print casts? Hair samples?

  2. greatanarch responds:

    Yes, I remember it well! They still haven’t replaced those terrible canoes.

    The Orang Pendek is very interesting. Sumatra still has vast dense jungle.. But what if there is definitive proof of this animals, that is undeniable. The missing link?! That is what the media will scream. Won’t thousands of people go looking for them? And what will come of the vast jungle then? Also my personal opinion is that i don’t think local people will coexist peacefully with these animals, like they do with orang utang (which ofcourse are known to not pose an immediate threat). Pendek is far more imposing i imagine. Orang Pendek will probably not wonder into many angry inhabitans especially when they are discovered and thousands are wandering the forest. But i think local superstition will possible be a difficult matter. Or will we be able to preserve the species and give them room to breath??

    Is it better to just let them be? It’s certainly easier.

    But then again it’s only human to want to know, or is it?

    Well.. I would like to know (and vote for the preserve plan…).
