Pick up your holiday Yeti and Christmas ornaments. If you want to support the museum, no matter where you are, by purchasing one or more of these ornaments – or autographed books, casts, coelacanth replicas, or museum teeshirts – please contact me via the form you can find by clicking here, let me know what you want and where you are, and I’ll get back to you within 5 minutes to 24 hours.
I will be at this museum shopping day event this coming Saturday. In Falmouth, Maine, not England or Massachusetts, of course.
Go shopping, and afterward, then take a ten minute ride down the road, to see the International Cryptozoology Museum in downtown Portland.
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.
