One of the world’s most obscure cryptozoological reptiles is the afa – a Middle Eastern mystery lizard briefly reported by explorer Sir Wilfred Thesiger in his book The Marsh Arabs (1964).   But what can it be – and does it even still exist today? Further details can be found here on my ShukerNature blog.

Mass Flying Creature Sightings In Texas Circa 1976

Posted by: Monster Island News on November 11th, 2013

It is surprising how certain events from your childhood stick with you over the years and make subtle changes in who you are as a person.

Giant Anacondas and Other Super-Sized Cryptozoological Snakes

Posted by: Karl Shuker on September 19th, 2013

During the 1920s, Raymond L. Ditmars, Curator of Reptiles at New York’s Bronx Zoo, offered US $1000 to anyone who could provide conclusive evidence for the existence of a snake measuring over 40 ft (12.2 m) long. The prize has never been claimed. Yet there are many extraordinary eyewitness accounts on record asserting that gargantuan […]

Legless In Nepal – A Limbless Himalayan Crocodile Dragon?

Posted by: Karl Shuker on August 25th, 2013

Nepal Dragon, William Rebsamen

As comprehensively documented in my latest book, Mirabilis: A Carnival of Cryptozoology and Unnatural History (2013), crocodilian mystery beasts come in all shapes and sizes and are of worldwide distribution. Yet few, surely, can be stranger than the giant limbless version reported from southern Asia as recently as 1980.

What May be a Hitherto-Undocumented Sighting of the Loch Ness Monster, Given to Me by Tim Dinsdale on July 25 1987

Posted by: Karl Shuker on July 29th, 2013

Tim gave me a copy of a most interesting Nessie sighting that an eyewitness had recently sent to him. He didn’t provide me with the eyewitness’s name, because he no doubt intended to publish an exclusive report of it in some future publication.

Does the Loch Ness Monster Have a Split Personality?

Posted by: Karl Shuker on July 15th, 2013

Today, the classic, pre-eminent image indelibly engrained in everyone’s mind when speaking of Nessie, the Loch Ness monster (LNM), is that of a plesiosaur lookalike, complete with long slender neck and tail, small head, and four large diamond-shaped flippers. However, this was not always the case.

Killer-Beasts of the Congo

Posted by: Nick Redfern on July 10th, 2013

“The Congo River Basin is one of the most curious and dark regions of the modern world. While modern man often holds fast to the rather contentious view that we know all the flora and fauna this world has provided, there are strange legends that emanate from this region which may beg to differ…”

Pacific Rim Anybody?

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on May 17th, 2013

pacific-rim-fight-Jaeger-VS.-Kaiju-Battle-

When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity’s resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge.

Any Cryptomundians looking forward to this?

I know I am! I watched all of the Godzilla films as a kid.
