On Coast to Coast

Posted by: Loren Coleman on November 11th, 2005

On this Tuesday’s overnight, November 15th’s Coast to Coast AM with George Noory, I will be appearing to talk about Lake Monsters, Thunderbirds, Mothman, and Bigfoot. In three hours it’s easy to cover many cryptozoological subjects, and I look forward to people calling in to discuss anything they want.

If you have any questions you want me to answer on air, leave them here in the comments section. I’ll work them into the show, or answer them next week, if C2C doesn’t get to them.

Also on with me, via phone from NC, will be my old Fortean friend Mark A. Hall. He will be talking about his 2004 book Thunderbirds: America’s Living Legends of Giant Birds. Mark has invited along a Thunderbird eyewitness on with him.

Mark has just penned a new 2005 book, The Lizardmen, and we may touch on that one too.

Hope you enjoy the show.

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.

    I am glad finally you are going to be on for a entire show! Probably you have been on for one before and maybe I missed it.

    I just got the Mothman book the other day, but doubt I get around to reading it by then. I am very much looking forward to reading it though.

    I’ve got a couple:

    1) In Heuvelman’s book “In The Wake Of The Sea Serpent” he relates the research ship “Dana” trawling up a 6-ft long eel larva in 1930. I’ve also seen references to it in a couple of other places, and from what I understand the find generated a lot of speculation at the time that many of the sea-serpent sightings may have been of monstrous eels. But I’ve never been able to find out what became of that specimen.

    2) Do you know of any attempts to duplicate Andrew Crosse’s experiments where he observed the spontaneously-appearing mites that became known as Acarus Electricus or “Crosse’s Acari”? It’s really outside the realm of our corner of zoology and you may not know anything about it, but it’s always fascinated me.

    Glad to hear you’ll be getting a spot, Mr. Coleman.

    Can you give a brief description of what a thunderbird looks like?

    I ask because I am native to the Midwest but lived in Utah for 3 years.

    Around May 2002 I was with a friend fishing for trout in the Ogden Pass and we watched a bird for several minutes perched on a peak at what looked to several hundred yards up. We were talking how this bird had to be at least 6ft tall or larger, we were definitely thinking larger, but where assuming that it was impossible to be that large. We half halfheartedly decided it was a crane of some sort because you could tell it was standing on one leg which was a very long leg. Not knowing much about birds, is it most likely a crane we saw that afternoon?

  5. Pediculide responds:

    I choked and came to many tears when I saw the rendering of the mothman on coast to coast’s main page. I had a brief encounter inside a room in which I saw what I thought was an “owl” hover in the air with wings folded behind it and it had distinct, large glowing red oval eyes. I watched it thinking I was dreaming, but I wasn’t. It “hovered” ever closer to me. I freaked out and it disappeared somehow. It was scary and I never want to see it again.

    I did not read any book about this. It was not an owl. Since seeing this picture I’ve tried to obtain more info, but it was in the room and it was there like the psychotic episode I’ve never had.

    I saw this thing. I’ve been disturbed since June ’05. I don’t want it to come back. I don’t care about anything except please tell me how to keep this thing out of my life.

    Please post.

  6. Pediculide responds:

    I can now add that after now reading up on the Mothman, I understand that this is a tall being. This head that I thought was hovering towards the ceiling must have appeard that high and not hovering if the Mothman is indeed that tall.

    Truthfully, it didn’t harm me physically. It probably could have I suppose. I scooted out of the room and
    I don’t know where it went, but it didn’t come after me. It definately doesn’t belong in the house uninvited though.

    I truthfully would appreciate any info as to whether I was in danger, or whether I am in danger and what to do about it.
