I wanted to share this article in light of the fact that Dr. David Oren and his search for the mapinguari is featured on tonight’s episode of Animal Planet’s Finding Bigfoot entitled Amazon Squatchin’.
In August of 1999 or so, I ran across the article in Discover magazine. It chronicled an ornithologist named David Oren’s treks into the Amazon in search of the Mapinguari, what is thought to be the still living giant ground sloth. The article detailed the derision that Oren suffered from his fellow scientists.
