Posted by: Karl Shuker on August 17th, 2017

It was only ever going to be a matter of time before my blog ShukerNature boldly went where it had never gone before, by confronting what may well be not only the most terrifying cryptid of all time but also the most controversial one – the cryptid that dare not speak its name, in fact, because that name is…Megalodon!

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!

Now, two years later, he has returned with the hotly demanded sequel, which takes the story in unexpected and surprising directions.

Exploring American Monsters: California

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on June 4th, 2015

Humans have lived in California for at least 15,000 years. In 1848, The United States acquired the area that would one day become the state of California for $15,000,000 after signing the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo, which ended the Mexican-American War. California, famous for Hollywood, the Golden Gate Bridge, and earthquakes, is the most populated state in the union, and the third largest after Alaska and Texas. Outside the large cities (16.37 million people in the greater Los Angeles area) lie great expanses of desert, mountains (including Vasquez Rocks Natural Area Park where Capt. James Kirk battled the Gorn in Star Trek), and forests. Despite the number of people, there’s plenty of room in California for monsters.

Great White Snack?

Posted by: Max Hawthorne on May 27th, 2014

Here’s an interesting photo of a great white shark doing what looks like an underwater tail-stand. What I like about it is, when you check out the bottom right, there appears to be a strange, mottled, V-shaped image that almost looks like something holding the shark in its “mouth.”

Reviewed: Kronos Rising

Posted by: Scott Mardis on April 28th, 2014

Freed by chance geologic events from the refuge that saved its kind 65 million years previously, a Mesozoic horror rises to engulf a quaint East Coast Florida town. An 80-foot eating machine that’s neither fish nor mammal, the relentless beast wreaks havoc in the already-complicated lives of several disparate people: a former Olympic fencing champion turned small town sheriff, a conservationist/marine biologist and a psychotic politician. Some other Mesozoic dietary staples of this monster make cameos along the way, as well as some familiar “sea monsters” of modern oceans.
