Posthumous Birthday Salutations to the late Dr. Grover Krantz. One of the true pioneers of Bigfoot research and without a doubt one of my heroes…

    There’s no better place to put this right now, so I’ll put it here.

    Over a decade after Krantz died, and well over 40 years after he got serious about this topic, nobody’s looking, as Brian Brown of NAWAC – the most serious people looking – tells us. He means statistically speaking, and he’s right.

    Just read this from a recent dinosaur find in Utah.

    There are about 1 million acres of cretaceous rocks that could be holding other new species of dinosaurs, said Titus, the BLM paleontologist who oversees the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. Only about 10 percent of the rock formation has been scoured, he said. Twelve other new dinosaurs found there are waiting to be named.

    “We are just getting started,” Titus said. “We have a really big sandbox to play in.”

    Holtz said the finding is a testament to the bounty of fossils lying in the earth in North America. He predicts more discoveries in Utah.

    “It shows we don’t have to go to Egypt or Mongolia or China to find new dinosaurs,” Holtz said. “It’s just a matter of getting the field teams out.”

    They know what Cretaceous formations look like. And that much remains to be done.

    Anyone know where sasquatch bones are likely to be located? A few have intelligently speculated. But no one knows for sure…and no one is looking, even in the possible places. (Unfortunately, the bottom of the Bering Sea would be one of them.)

    It’s just a matter of getting the field teams out.

    Whenever that begins to happen, let me know.

    RIP, Grover.

    Yes RIP Grover.

    My favourite bigfoot academic of all time.
