Happy Holidays everyone! Cryptozoo News / Loren Coleman has posted his list of Top Ten Cryptozoology Books of the Year. I’m honored to have landed the #1 spot with my new book Lizard Man.

Congratulations to my other colleagues and fellow Cryptomundo contributors that also made the list. 2013 was a year of great books, all deserving of praise. Here’s a few of the highlights…

Troodon and the Dinosauroid Hypothesis

Posted by: Lyle Blackburn on December 23rd, 2013

In a chapter entitled “Possibilities” from my new book, Lizard Man, I discuss various theories which have been proposed to explain sightings of reptilian-humanoid type cryptids. One of these theories is based on the concept of a “Hypothetical Dinosauroid,” which is a conjectured evolutionary path conceived by D.A. Russell and R. Séguin and published in 1982 in the National Museum of Canada’s Syllogeous No. 37. In the paper, Russell and Séguin essentially hypothesize that if the brain of this dinosaur had continued to grow in proportion to its body, then evolutionary changes would have been necessary to accommodate the new cranial mass. One of these changes would have been a more upright stance, since the “tendency to position the head more directly over the vertebral column is seen in anthropoids of increasing brain size.” This would conceivably lead to more anthropomorphic legs, longer arms, and most dramatically, a human-like head. It’s an interesting concept, and one that I discuss further in my book (as it relates to cryptozoology).

Along these lines, I came across this interesting video which provides additional information and visuals in regard to the concept of the Dinosauroid and reptilian humanoids in general:

The Lake Monsters of America

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on December 5th, 2013

People love to fill in mysterious areas of nature with myths of monsters. Early maps had voids of knowledge marked with warnings that “Here be Dragons,” sasquatches are believed to be prowling the thick forests, and legends tell of strange creatures that might be concealed beneath the surface of our lakes. Here we present our map of American lake monsters, showing the spread of cryptids that might be lurking in the depths of the waters of the United States.
