Karl’s Top 10 Terrors!

Posted by: Nick Redfern on September 17th, 2012

In his latest blog post, Dr. Karl Shuker begins:

“Not all mystery beasts on record are shy, reclusive creatures that take great pains to avoid humankind at all cost. Some, conversely, are actively belligerent, ferocious animals that have reputedly attacked and killed people with impunity, or at the very least, if confronted, possess all manner of ingenious but equally devastating ways of dispatching their foolhardy antagonists. Here, then, in no particular order is my own personal listing of the world’s top ten deadliest cryptids – lethal life-forms that only the most brash, or rash, field cryptozoologist is likely to consider pursuing…at their peril!”

    Good article, based on some earlier posts, I was expecting wolfmen and mermaids, but these cryptids are interesting.

    Any theories that the Nandi bear maybe an amphicyonid?

  3. DWA responds:

    Some of what I read here, I wouldn’t be so quick to dismiss.

    Mandors: good question. That’s what the Nandi bear sounds like.

    One problem with documentation is the tendency for people to clam up about anomalous things they’ve seen because they fear ridicule. The main reason for the ridicule seems to be people’s – most especially scientists’ – naive tendency to put everything in one of two categories – the absolutely proven and the totally no-way loony.

    You know, for people who, well, like to think, there’s at least one more category.
