Jungle Gemlins of Java

Posted by: Loren Coleman on January 25th, 2012

Dr. Anna Nekaris is presenting a new show about her work on cryptic species, “Jungle Gremlins of Java,” premiering in the UK on BBC2: Natural World, on January 25, 2012, at 8 pm. It will be broadcast later this year in the US on Animal Planet.

Dr. Anna Nekaris was one of the panelists on the Definitive Guide to Bigfoot.

Dr. Anna Nekaris travels to the jungles of Java to solve the riddle of its toxic bite of the slow loris, but a shocking discovery awaits. The toxin produced by slow lorises appears to contain substances that can cause flesh necrosis in humans. These substances are found in bugs such as millepedes which form part of a loris’ diet in the wild. (Graphic bloody thumb video here.)

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.

    As a long standing Sasquatch researcher, may I please say that Anna is one lady I wouldn’t mind getting lost in the woods with. Beauty, brains and a measure of grit. An absolutely irresistible combination. Seriously though, I look very much forward to seeing her show, and learning from her research.
