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.

“The most famous photograph has now been shown to be a fake, but could there be an unknown mammal or even reptile of large dimension swimming in a Scottish lake? Sure there could. That we don’t know about? Sure there could. Who say’s no?”

King Kong is set to make its return to the Universal Orlando Resort.

When Kong returns, it will be to Universal Orlando’s other theme park, Islands of Adventure.

Mama Creech: As we celebrate 60 years of Creech this week, we would be remiss if didn’t mention the amazingly talented (and often overlooked) genius who created the Creature, Milicent Patrick.

In Search of Prehistoric Survivors

Posted by: Karl Shuker on March 4th, 2014

Still In Search Of Prehistoric Survivors

Of all of my 20 books, none has attracted such acclaim but also such controversy as In Search of Prehistoric Survivors. Next year will mark the 20th anniversary of its original publication in 1995, and having received countless requests from readers over the years for its republication (after having been out of print for a number of years now), I am happy to say that following a protracted period of time doing the rounds of prospective publishers, it was accepted for publication just over a year ago, and I am working upon it with a view to its achieving a timely 2015 reappearance.

His four friends were allegedly either killed by this thing or drowned, McCleary being the only survivor.
