The Crowing Crested Cobra – A Cryptozoological Cockatrice?

Posted by: Karl Shuker on July 30th, 2014

The legendary basilisk was originally described in Western folklore as resembling a relatively small, unspectacular serpent in basic form. Down through subsequent ages, however, reports of it changed during the endless retellings of myths until it eventually became much larger, and acquired a cockerel’s coxcomb and wattles, as well as the ability to crow like a cockerel too. This marked the beginning of the basilisk’s gradual transformation into a much more dramatic-looking yet equally fictitious monster – the cockatrice.

Loch: A Novel

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on July 22nd, 2014

This book is good for its niche: the YA horror novel. It’s an action-filled adventure with teenage protagonists trying to discover and save the lake monsters. There are a couple of really gory scenes for a YA! These lake monsters can be nasty…

The ‘Other’ Encounter Between a British Saint and a Lake Monster

Posted by: Karl Shuker on July 19th, 2014

Every self-respecting cryptozoologist knows – or should know – about the famous encounter claimed for St Columba and the Loch Ness monster during the 6th Century AD (its specific date varies from one authority to another). Having said that, in reality the encounter apparently took place not in the loch itself but in the River Ness – so the creature in question may not have had any bearing upon the cryptids allegedly frequenting the loch, but may simply have been a vagrant sea creature of known form, such as a bearded seal or possibly even a walrus. Anyway, regardless of its specifics, this encounter is, as I say, a very famous one in the annals of cryptozoology. Far less famous, however, yet no less interesting, is the ‘other’ encounter between a British saint and a lake monster.

The Emela-Ntouka – New Evidence for the Congo’s ‘Killer of Elephants’

Posted by: Karl Shuker on July 11th, 2014

Emela-ntouka-David-Miller-Roy-Macka1l

It may be the most famous one, but the long-necked moekel-mbembe, often likened to a sauropod dinosaur, is not the only mystery beast allegedly inhabiting the vast Likouala swamplands of the People’s Republic of the Congo. Less familiar but definitely no less interesting is a second major mystery beast claimed by this region’s pygmies to live here – a truly extraordinary (and exceedingly formidable) creature known to them as the emela-ntouka, or ‘killer of elephants’.

Nessie Is Not A Plessie

The Partridge Creek Monster – A Living Dinosaur in the Yukon?

Posted by: Karl Shuker on June 13th, 2014

The Arctic wastelands of the Yukon Territory, on the borders of Canada and Alaska, are surely the last place anyone might expect to meet a dinosaur – which is why the following case merits a prominent place among the dubitanda of cryptozoology. The extraordinary tale of the beast from Partridge Creek debuted on 15 April […]

In Search of the Congo Dinosaur

Posted by: John Kirk on May 27th, 2014

I want to let you in on a great documentary series done by my mate Wayne Hall. It’s called In Search of the Congo dinosaur.

Yes, there are creationist overtones which some may not agree with, but the essence of Mokele-mbembe research is captured in this series. This is a real passion of mine and I reckon that all the deprivations that me (my) mates and I have undergone has been worth it.
