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.

    Peter always seems to be on the early negative to me. Easy stance to take.

  2. Ceroill responds:

    Loren, for those of us not so deeply educated on the intricacies of the terms used, could you explain what, if any difference there is between the Mande Burung and the beings previously pubicized so assiduously?

  3. Loren Coleman responds:

    Local peoples often use names that have not necessarily been widely employed outside their town, village or region.

    I would compare the use of Mande Burung to a name like MoMo (Missouri Monster), which while at first locally known only gains more recognition once the media begins using it (them).

  4. Ceroill responds:

    Thanks, Loren.
