Sadie Hawkins Day Bigfoot

Posted by: Loren Coleman on February 29th, 2008

Today is one of the rare events in human time-space history, a catch-up day, February 29th. Happy Sadie Hawkins Day! According to English law, February 29th was ignored and had no legal status. Therefore, it was the one day when women could ask someone to marry them. This practice was first documented in 1288, when […]

Felix the Cat & Yeti

Posted by: Loren Coleman on February 28th, 2008

Okay, this may be merely a Felix the Cat cartoon, but it also may be one of the worst illustrations of misrepresentations in comic history. This cartoon with Felix the Cat and the Abominable Snowman is from 1958. How many misstatements and mistakes do you see in it? (No, I’m not really upset. I’m just […]

Disturbing Big Cat Videos

Posted by: Loren Coleman on February 28th, 2008

The large felid exhibition has reopened, but a cloud of “why” still floats over the death of a young man killed during a tiger attack at the San Francisco Zoo. Videos such as the following are disturbing, because they give the illusion that “wild animals” are friendly. How can we teach children to enjoy zoos […]

Iriomote Wildcat

Posted by: Loren Coleman on February 26th, 2008

Today, I received directly from Japan, for the museum, the above shown replica of the Iriomote wildcat (Prionailurus iriomotensis), a classic animal of discovery for cryptozoology. It may be only a minor figurine at 2.5 inches long to some, but I find it significant that such care has been bestowed onto this important replica. A […]

Gobi Kulan Soon At Edinburgh Zoo

Posted by: Loren Coleman on February 25th, 2008

I have mentioned Przewalski’s horse before, regarding their presence in zoos (as above) and concerning their replica appearance (as below). The Przewalski’s horse, a Pleistocene megafauna survivor, extinct in the wild, can be called a “living fossil,” in the popularized employment of that phrase. Certainly, this horse is of interest to cryptozoologists, as mentioned earlier. […]

Before “Monster Quest,” “Legend Hunters,” “Ghost Hunters,” “Mystery Hunters,” and “Destination Truth,” there was Peter von Puttkamer’s “Monster Hunters” on television. It was a series that was one of the first cryptozoology “hunt” or “search” shows featuring groups of actual cryptozoologists or monster hunters filmed in the field.
