Megalania – A Monster Still Among Us?

Posted by: Nick Redfern on July 23rd, 2015

Megalania

Is it feasible that the subtropical rainforests of Australia are home to gigantic, marauding lizards of twenty to thirty feet in length? Could such Jurassic Park-like beasts really remain hidden, undetected, and free to rampage around in near-unstoppable fashion? Just maybe, the answer is “yes.”

Exploring American Monsters: Hawaii

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on July 21st, 2015

Hawaii is, well, it’s Hawaii. A series of islands in the Central Pacific with more gorgeous beaches, cliffs, waterfalls, volcanoes, and girls in bikinis than it knows what to do with. Apart from its geography, and lush tropical vegetation, Hawaii is famous for its love of Spam, the late singer Don Ho, the lei, and the luau. Europeans discovered the islands on 18 January 1778 when English explorer Captain James Cook landed on one of the sandy beaches. Cook was killed by islanders on Valentine’s Day the next year for being a jerk (attempting to kidnap the king will get you that short-lived reputation). Shark attacks occur on Hawaiian shores, although in 2014, only three out of eight million visitors were attacked by a shark. Hawaiians have more to fear by Axis deer wandering into the roadway than being bitten by a shark. Although Hawaii is the one state in the Union that has no reports of Bigfoot, there are still plenty of creepy, crawly monsters to go around.

From terrorist hunter to monster hunter! Jack Rastun was a decorated U.S. Army Ranger, until an unfortunate incident forced him out of the service. He is soon hired by the Foundation for Undocumented Biological Investigation and given a new mission, to search for cryptids, creatures whose existence has not been proven by mainstream science.

Reviewing Dragons in Zoology, Cryptozoology, and Culture

Posted by: Karl Shuker on July 19th, 2015

After extensive research, I finally wrote my long-planned second dragons book – entitled Dragons in Zoology, Cryptozoology, and Culture – and saw it published in 2013 by Coachwhip Publications of Greenville, Ohio. It constitutes one of the most comprehensive dragon-themed factual books ever published, is sumptuously illustrated throughout in full colour, and very recently I was delighted to see not one but two positive, encouraging reviews of it.

Exploring American Monsters: Arkansas

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on May 6th, 2015

The state of Arkansas in the southern U.S. is known for its lush green mountains, roaring rivers, and University of Arkansas football. It’s the headquarters of the world’s number one retailer, Wal-Mart, and is the birthplace of musician Johnny Cash, and former U.S. President Bill Clinton. It’s also the home of monsters. The most famous of these is the Fouke Monster, a sasquatch-type creature immortalized in the 1972 movie “The Legend of Boggy Creek.” But this series, “Exploring American Monsters,” isn’t about well-known beasts, it’s about the lesser-known creatures the world sees from the corner of its eye, like the Ozark Howler.

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on April 16th, 2015

People see strange things up North, and John Warms has collected stories of some very strange creatures in his travels throughout Manitoba. From well-known mystery animals like Sasquatch and lake monsters to lesser-known cryptids like giant beavers, “beaver ducks,” and “underwater moose,” these tales add breadth and depth to Canadian zoological folklore with plenty of material for cryptozoology enthusiasts to investigate. Strange Creatures Seldom Seen includes both eyewitness sketches and full color illustrations by artist Jarmo Sinisalo.

Exploring American Monsters: Alaska

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on April 1st, 2015

Alaska is big. At 663,300 square miles, it’s about the size of Germany, Poland, and France.

That’s a lot of open area for bear, moose, and killer whales, but it’s also a haven for monsters.

The Camp Fircom Caddy Carcase – Monster or Montage?

Posted by: Karl Shuker on March 9th, 2015

Few cryptozoologists will be unaware of the Naden Harbour carcase – an enigmatic serpentine animal carcase removed from the stomach of a dead whale at a whaling station in Canada’s Queen Charlotte Islands in July 1937, and thought by some cryptozoologists to have been a juvenile Caddy, the elusive sea serpent of Cadboro Bay, British Columbia. Today, this mysterious carcase is long-lost, but three famous photos of it still exist. Far less familiar than the Naden Harbour carcase photographs, conversely, are two Caddy-linked pictures that were first brought to my notice 20 years ago. To my knowledge, they had never previously received any cryptozoological attention, and even today they remain little-publicised.
