Rocky Kills

Posted by: Loren Coleman on April 25th, 2008

Rocky performs. In a not-too-surprising revelation, in the wake of an escaped tiger killing a man at the San Francisco Zoo, perhaps a few cold glasses of water in modern human’s faces are that, yes, wild animals are strong and do kill. For a moment, ponder this: If people can’t consider the realities of the […]

Brookline Gator Sighted

Posted by: Loren Coleman on April 24th, 2008

The following account signals that spring is finally here in North America. In Mysterious America, I noted that out-of-place alligators should to be tracked to keep such reports separate from Lake Monster reports.

Radford Tries Being Scientific

Posted by: Loren Coleman on April 24th, 2008

Ben Radford tells us how his “science works.” “Lake Monsters I Have Known” sounds like the setup for a bad horror movie or an even worse children’s book. One thing it might not sound like is science. But without science, Ben Radford explained at a recent meeting of New Mexicans for Science and Reason, the […]

Chasing Discovery

Posted by: Loren Coleman on April 24th, 2008

Chasing Discovery has its world premiere at St. Michael’s College today. I thought Cryptomundians would be interested in this new film: There’s something out there… And the men and women of cryptozoology are determined to find it. The researchers in this relatively obscure science face ridicule, financial struggles and harsh skepticism in their quest to […]

I guess for pure fundraising efforts, I have overlooked that bag of potato chips in my kitchen. Now comes word that a Hampton, Virginia, resident is selling a chip with a hollowed out “image” of Bigfoot in its middle over at eBay. Here’s the description: I have here for auction one ruffled potato chip that […]

Cryptomundo field correspondent Evan Livada passes along the breaking news of the possible return of active cougar sightings from southern Maine. Taken seriously by local residents, the encounters are getting the typical skeptical official and media reaction. One has to wonder, since physical evidence has confirmed their presence in the past, then why the overtly […]

Three New Articerodes Discovered

Posted by: Loren Coleman on April 20th, 2008

New insects are literally found daily, by the hundreds every year. Cryptozoology, as I have noted, generally deals with the discovery of larger animals, mostly vertebrates, with the now-and-then large invertebrate, such as the giant squid (verified) and giant octopus (still an active cryptid). But, it appears the entomologists deserve their due sometimes. They need […]
