A few days ago, I received a review copy of the new book from cryptozoologist Ken Gerhard. Published by Llewellyn, its title is Encounters With Flying Humanoids. Ken is the author of a number of previous books, including Monsters Are Real, Big Bird!, and (with me) Monster of Texas. And, I’m very pleased to say, the book does not disappoint. Indeed, I read the whole thing in one sitting – which is a sure sign that the book is a very good one!

Remembering the Huia – Mysteries of New Zealand’s Extinct(?) Bird With Two Beaks

Posted by: Karl Shuker on June 29th, 2013

One of New Zealand’s most iconic species of bird was the huia, famed for the male and female possessing beaks of dramatically different shapes. It officially became extinct in 1907 – but did it? “The huia’s morphology is unique. No other bird in New Zealand, whether native or introduced, can be readily confused with it […]

For several nights in 1903, the small town of Van Meter, Iowa was terrorized by a giant bat-like creature that emerged from an old abandoned mine.

The identity of this mysterious monster has never been discovered, but over 100 years later a new book is retelling the amazing tale and hoping to shed some light on what happened all those years ago.

Posted by: Karl Shuker on May 1st, 2013

Four-Winged Birds?

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on March 18th, 2013

Thought you knew what ancient birds looked like? Think again.

The ancestors of some modern bird species had four “wings” instead of two, according to a new study, and that may have played a major role in the evolution of early birds and flight.
