St. Augustine Monster

Posted by: Loren Coleman on March 21st, 2008


For those on Spring Break now venturing South, don’t forget to see if there’s any evidence of the St. Augustine cryptid (1896) currently being popularized in that Florida East Coast city today.

Loren Coleman About Loren Coleman
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. 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. An honorary member of Ivan T. 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. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.

    Ahhh, the good ol St Augustine Globster! So they finally did analyze the stuff and determined the origin of the tissue? Cool. Good to know.

  2. mystery_man responds:

    I remember way back in the day when I was totally fascinated by globsters. To me, they were these mysterious enigmas from the deep and my mind ran amok with speculation as to what they could be. Science has come a long way towards pretty handily explaining their more mundane origins, though. Nowadays, I don’t believe there are too many credible reports of mysterious globsters or carcasses that haven’t been able to be explained as decomposing whales or other marine life, are there? It detracts from the mystery of the phenomena, but it is thrilling that science can now be brought to bear to better understand what is really going on in these kinds of cases.

    MM- once again you said extremely well exactly what was in my own mind. Thanks!

  4. plant girl responds:

    I am glad to know what the blob is. Maybe someday there will be one that cannot be identified.
