Got the go ahead today to let everyone have a look at the front and back covers of Discovering Cadborosaurus the new book by Paul LeBlond, Jason Walton and myself.
Jason did the cover artwork and it’s absolutely stunning. The Caddy in the illustration is a composite of various sightings. We are damn proud of this book and can’t wait until the autumn when it is released.

In December last year, MSNBC came up to Canada to interview me for a program on cryptids which was part of the Caught on Camera series.
We talked for about two hours and much of this was recorded on video.
Finally nearly six months later, the cryptid episode aired.

Recently on Cryptomundo, attention was brought to the alleged “sea monster” 8mm film taken by the late Garry Liimatta (1944-2012) in May 1969 off of Vancouver Island, B.C., Canada.
Whatever it was, it appears to have been relatively large. Liimatta described a large turtle-like animal with an 8 foot long neck. Little known is that he also made an eyewitness sketch.

It was fine fall day in October 1933 when W.H. Langley and his wife set out for an afternoon’s sail near Victoria. Their boat had reached the point of Discovery Island when they made a discovery of their own. A greenish-brown creature, later named Cadborosaurus, was travelling quickly in front of their boat. In a CBC interview, Mrs. Langley recalls that she wasn’t afraid, merely interested. “It took my fancy that it wasn’t anything we’d seen before,” she says.

We must remember that the best case for most cryptids at this point in time is based on ambiguous, circumstantial evidence and any possible connections to extinct animals are tenuous at best. Assuming the bulk of descriptive and photographic evidence might be correct and bear some resemblance to a known fossil form, we should not overlook the remarkable phenomenon of convergent evolution. It’s within the realm of possibility that some recently evolved animal, unknown to us in fossil form, has developed features similar to some well known extinct forms.

Sharon Hill, geologist, skeptic, and Sounds Sciencey columnist, has given the boot (boot? Hill? Get it?) to the claims that prehistoric survivors are still roaming around causing cryptozoologists to get all excited.

Vertebrate paleontologist Darren Naish has posted a wonderful article on the probable behavior and lifestyles of plesiosaurs at his Scientific American blog, Tetrapod Zoology. This is obviously of interest to those in cryptozoology with questions regarding what we know about real plesiosaurs versus speculation about “long necked sea monsters”. Dr. Naish himself does not endorse the “relict plesiosaur” theory but is open minded to the giant long necked seal idea.

In 2009, Kelly Nash and his sons Kyle and Jasen obtained footage of a group of unknown animals that were pursued by a pod of beluga whales in Nushagak Bay, Alaska.
I promised readers of Cryptomundo that I would continue to try and ascertain what happened to the missing footage of the animal that was a remarkable fit for a living, breathing version of the Naden Harbour carcass.
