Still In Search Of Prehistoric Survivors

Posted by: Karl Shuker on November 29th, 2016

It has been 21 years since the original publication back in 1995 of In Search of Prehistoric Survivors, considered by many to be my finest cryptozoological volume. Not surprisingly, then, in subsequent years there has been a growing, persistent clamour among its numerous fans worldwide for me to prepare a new, updated edition. Now, at last, fulfilling a longstanding promise, I have done so – and what an update it is!

The Yukon Beaver Eater, and Ground Sloths in New Zealand?

Posted by: Karl Shuker on March 9th, 2016

When we think of sloths, we generally picture those famously sluggish, dog-sized, tree-dwelling beasts that spend much of their time hanging upside-down from branches in modern-day Central and South America. Millions of years ago, however, there were several additional, very different morphological types – of which the most famous and dramatic were the ground sloths.

A Manifestation of Monsters is Here!

Posted by: Karl Shuker on September 13th, 2015

I’m delighted to announce that my latest book, A Manifestation of Monsters: Examining the (Un)Usual Subjects, is now in print, published by Anomalist Books. It contains a superb foreword by my good friend and fellow cryptozoologist Ken Gerhard, and its front cover is sumptuously illustrated with a truly spectacular cryptozoological painting by hugely-talented artist Michael J.

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.”

The Last of the Irish Elks?

Posted by: Karl Shuker on July 15th, 2015

One of the most spectacular members of the Eurasian Pleistocene megafauna was the Irish elk Megaloceros giganteus. Formally described in 1799, it is also aptly known as the giant deer, as its largest known representatives were only marginally under 7 ft tall at the shoulder and bore massive antlers spanning up to 12 ft, but did this magnificent species linger on into historic times?

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

Steller’s Secret Fauna – Gargantuan Sea-Cows, Inaccessible Sea-Ravens, and Bewhiskered Sea-Monkeys

Posted by: Karl Shuker on December 28th, 2014

Dr Georg Wilhelm Steller was a German physician and naturalist participating during the early 1740s in the last of Danish explorer Vitus Bering’s Russian expeditions to the Arctic waters (now called the Bering Sea) separating Siberia’s Kamchatka Peninsula from Alaska. During this expedition, Steller documented many new species of animal, including four very contentious forms that continue to arouse cryptozoological curiosity even today.

Caterpillar Bears, Bulldog Bears, and God Bears – Ursine Cryptids of Kamchatka

Posted by: Karl Shuker on December 10th, 2014

In spring 1987, amid the far northeastern Kamchatka peninsula region of what was then the Soviet Union but is now Russia, hunter Rodion Sivolobov obtained the skin of a giant white bear. To most eyes, it might simply look like the pelt of an over-sized polar bear, but according to Sivolobov, and the area’s local […]
