The three parts of this documentary were produced in early 2008, in Spanish. The program is about the dinosaur-like cryptid from central Africa, Mokele Mbembe. It is carried here as a special treat to our Spanish-speaking and reading audience.
Una increíble expedición tras un mito que se oculta en lo más profundo del continente negro. Muchos hablan de un dinosaurio, otros de un extraño rinoceronte. Este ser llamado Mokele Mbembe es temido y respetado por todas las tribus y su leyenda se extiende por toda África. Fernando González Sitges, naturalista y director de Explora films, y Oscar Soriano, Vicedirector del Museo de Ciencias Naturales de Madrid, expondrán qué puede haber tras esta extraña criatura.
[See below, in comments, some English notes on what occurred during the expedition.]
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.
