A Hitherto-Unseen Photo of Ranger, Scotland’s (Nearly) Black Lion

Posted by: Karl Shuker on May 23rd, 2013

With almost 900,000 hits since I uploaded it on 12 June 2012, by far the most popular of all of my 300+ ShukerNature posts is my exposure of three online black lion photographs as computer-modified fakes (click here). In that same post, I also included some information concerning various alleged sightings in the wild of […]

What Is It? (2)

Posted by: Karl Shuker on May 21st, 2013

Here’s a scaly humanoid from the same bestiary in the Vatican Library (and clearly not intended to be a merman as its hands are not webbed and it has normal legs instead of a fish-tail). A severe case of ichthyosis, perhaps, as exhibited by certain supposed ‘fish boys’ displayed at various travelling sideshows and carnivals of the past?

What Is It?

Posted by: Karl Shuker on May 21st, 2013

Here’s a curious illustration from a medieval bestiary in the Vatican Library. I’ve seen attempts on various websites to identify it as a sea-lion, though its trunk is surely more suggestive of an elephant seal – but what about its hoofed forelimbs?? Weird.

Cobweb Panthers – A Silvered Surprise

Posted by: Karl Shuker on May 3rd, 2013

Surprising as it may seem, not all black panthers are black… “Black panthers, i.e. melanistic leopards, are exotic-looking felids at the best of times, but the individual constituting the principal subject of this present ShukerNature blog post was a truly exceptional female black panther, purchased from Dublin Zoo during the early 1980s, and exhibited for a few years at […]

Sonnerat’s Non-Existent Penguins (and Kookaburra) of New Guinea

Posted by: Karl Shuker on May 1st, 2013

Pierre Sonnerat was a famous 18th-Century French explorer and naturalist. As will be revealed here in the following ShukerNature post of mine, however, he was also a blatant hoaxer – confirmed by the curious case of New Guinea’s non-existent penguins, and kookaburra.  “Pierre Sonnerat’s publications include Voyage à la Nouvelle-Guinée (1776), documenting an expedition that he […]
