A past Father’s Day present from my two Maine sons had a decidedly cryptozoological theme. They gave me the above “Hooray for Cryptozoology” tee-shirt. (It is obtainable online, they told me, at threadless.com.)
There are several tee-shirts with similar ideas out there, I’ve since discovered. Now the International Cryptozoology Museum even produces some. So, indeed, hooray for cyptozoology, as our topic of interest may be one of the fastest new markets for which artists and clothing makers are rushing to create items.
Tee-shirts are coming in a variety of new designs, such as…
Of course, one of the best gifts my sons’ surprised me with was a BoneClones.com replica of the skull of Smilodon, the saber-toothed tiger, several years ago. It is a personal favorite because it is one of the first cz-linked items they ever gave me.
I love my kids, and wish them a good rest of the year. Everyday is Father’s Day to me, with them in my life.
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.
