Pondering the Aardvark

Posted by: Loren Coleman on July 27th, 2008

Why is the aardvark of some importance to cryptozoology, you might be wondering? In my revised slide show on the history of cryptozoology, I have one on the life of the “Father of Cryptozoology,” noting Bernard Heuvelmans, with the line: “Doctorate, aardvark’s teeth.” Bernard Heuvelmans’ 1939 thesis was dedicated to the classification of the hitherto […]
