Animal Planet Watch

Posted by: Loren Coleman on May 21st, 2009

The forthcoming 2009-2010 television season has been published.

On Animal Planet, a few specials seem worthy of watching.

In 2nd quarter, the two-hour special “Beasts of the Bible” reveals the surprising originals of mysterious beasts and investigates the strangest creatures found in the Bible. “Animal Armageddon” presents a history of life on Earth, focusing on the immediate period of time before, during and after mass extinctions.

In a 4th quarter two-hour special, “Werewolves” hypothesizes the lives of werewolves, from how they live among humans to how they transform into wolves.

The Book of Werewolves by Sabine Baring-Gould is a new classic in hardback from a cryptozoology series from Cosimo Books.

Also, on Animal Planet, the series “Lost Tapes” returns with a clearer acknowledgment of their cryptofiction mission, and the use of factoid snippets in their episodes.

🙂 Thank You.

Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969.

Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013.

    Sounds like there is some great potential here, lets hope they don’t disappoint!

  2. cliff responds:

    Loren – Do you have any approximate dates for the 2nd quarter “Beasts of the Bible” and 4th quarter “Werewolves” airing?

    Those episodes look interesting, also looks like someone got to have some fun on a nice field trip for the airing of “Beasts of the Bible”.

  3. Loren Coleman responds:

    Dates are unknown to me. Sorry.

    I shall travel anywhere in the pursuit of continued educational opportunities on behalf of cryptozoology, or for more information and knowledge to be collected about cryptids.

    Want to hire me for an illustrated presentation or to assist with a level-headed documentary, please contact me!
