Lost World Is Coming

Posted by: Loren Coleman on October 4th, 2006

Look what Peter von Puttkamer is bringing to Discovery HD Theater on December 14th, on Animal Planet, December 10th and 17th, 2006, and in Canada on OLN Cable, December 17th, 2006: The Real Lost World.

Peter is the director of the successful 2002 series, Monster Hunters, and my all-time favorite documentary about the quest, Sasquatch Odyssey: The Hunt for Bigfoot.

Of the individuals highlighted on the poster, I only know Dean Harrison, recently of Australia, who has been a helpful and good research associate of mine. Anyone know any of the other expedition folks?

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.

    This looks kind of exciting.

  2. sschaper responds:

    Are they suggesting surviving t.rex? Or is that a tie-in to Conan Doyle?

  3. YarriWarrior responds:

    Awesome! And it is two hours! I can’t wait! Yarri

  4. mystery_man responds:

    Oh this is very cool! I haven’t seen any sort of documentaries about what is going on down in South America. That place is a treasure trove of cryptozoological mysteries.

  5. Maohk Kiaayo responds:

    I do not think that would be a T-rex. The forelimbs have three claws.

  6. twblack responds:

    Very Very cool can not wait to see this.

  7. John Kirk responds:

    I provided the voiceover of Everard Im Thurn (played by Peter von Puttkamer himself) in this production and I can tell you that it is an amazing production. The photography is spectacular and the investigations are most absorbing.

    Dean Harrison is the only person in the cryptozoological realm in this program. The others are people who specialize in a variety of fields including herpetology, botany and biology amongst others.

    This took over a year in the making and I was blown away as I watched some of the final edits. This is TV at its best.

  8. kittenz responds:

    Can’t wait!

  9. Dragonheart responds:

    Argh, I would like to watch this one, but I’m living in Germany. Is there a chance to get that movie on DVD?

  10. Loren Coleman responds:

    I don’t know many documentaries that don’t come out on DVDs eventually, these days. Keep watching at Cryptomundo, and someone here will certainly let you know when it appears for private purchase.

  11. cor2879 responds:

    I’ll be tuning in to this one. South America remains one of the most unexplored regions of the world… I hope this is a good one.

  12. Bob Michaels responds:

    Did they find any new species? Or are they just looking for Alleged Dinos?

  13. Dean Harrison responds:

    Peter von Puttkamer, as we all know, is an exceptional writer and Director (particularly with Crypto related topics), but he really outdid himself on this film. Spending all that time shooting the Doco/movie in the Amazon Jungle and other areas of South America was an amazing adventure. What sparked MY interest was the fact that very little had been recorded of the ancient myths and legends, especailly regading tribes such as the Pemon Indians. They told many wonderful stories about all manner of Crypto related issues, of which we searched for. For Cryptozoology fans, this film is a must….. Some of the creepy crawlies we unearthed will certainly give YOU the creepy crawlies! Seemed every corner we turned, there was more and more dangerous animals, giant spiders, massive centipedes, bullet ants, snakes, Crocs and a ton of other things to watch out for. Really exciting Doco.

  14. sschaper responds:

    Since my first response, I’ve now seen examples of the Ica indian burial stones depicting fights with therapods.

  15. Dean Harrison responds:

    Yes indeed. I was interviewing an old Indian Chief who was describing the Pterodactyl’s that would occasionally swoop down from the top of Mt Roraima and fly away with small children from his village. There has been many documented sightings of Pterodactyl’s in explorers journals over the past few hundred years. The other thing I found interesting was the fact that there are next to no reported deaths by Anaconda and if you ask Western Researchers about it, most of them say it doesn’t happen. Completely different story when you speak to the villages. Basically everyone knows someone that has been taken by them. They just don’t have the procedures that we’re accustomed to, such as death certificates, autopsies or any of the other laws surrounding death, so it’s not recorded. Life has always been cheap over there, so in these remote areas, they simply bury the person and that’s that (if there’s anything left of course).

  16. big max responds:

    With reports of dinosauria (see Loren’s ‘Field Guide to Lake Monsters, Sea Serpents’ pages 224-226); a giant anaconda from legendary surveyor turned explorer Col. Percy Fawcett in the 1920s; and a variety of interesting lake sightings – South America, with its remote, uninhabited areas may still play host to some over-sized variants of known species, and even some stunning over-sized new species or incredible relatives from creatures of the past. Let’s hope this documentary has some thought-provoking research topics.

  17. Maohk Kiaayo responds:

    I wonder if they collected any stories of giant ground sloths?

  18. Ole Bub responds:

    Good morning Cryptos…this new series looks like a wonderful addition to the documentary field…agreed two hours is much better…nice to hear from John Kirk…worried Ogopogo…had got him…JMHO

    seeing is believing…

    ole bub and the dawgs

  19. mokele responds:

    Where did they do in South America? This is a place to go and do research. When I was in Cusco, Peru last year, I got to make a real quick tip down to jungle, Pongo de Mainique to look into reports an unknown primate down there. Only able to spend a day and night at the Pongo, but well worth it. Peter Hocking, who gave me the info on the primate also wrote, “In my files I have reports on 50 crypto-mammals, 15 crypto-birds, and 6 crypto-reptiles.” I believe he was just refering to Peru.

  20. CryptoInformant responds:

    I am looking forward to oversized snakes and severely undersized Tyrannosaurs, as most reports I have heard of the Amazon Tyrannosaur put it at around 15 feet long.

  21. joppa responds:

    How many types of primates are in the Amazon ?? I remember that Ivan Sanderson listed several types of suspected bi-pedal apes throughout South America. Also, what ever happened to the “giant-footed” Patagonians that Magellean reported on his round the world excursion ???

  22. traveler responds:

    Finally some attention drawn to my home, the deep jungle. Even though i never heard of a rex there, it wouldnt surprise me. and Loren, remember that sighting i told you about? i will have the details soon, sorrys its been so long, but there were issues, but no i can continue.

  23. mystery_man responds:

    I rate South America right up there with Africa as havens for cryptozoological phenomena. It seems like every time I look into it, I come up with new types of cryptids I had never heard of before and I have been a cryptozoology enthusiast for many, many years. Exciting stuff.
