Big Bad Book of Beasts

Over at the Magonia blog, John Rimmer reviews Michael Largo’s new book, The Big, Bad Book of Beasts.

In his review, Rimmer notes:

“Lots of our favourite crypto-creatures are here as well, the Jersey Devil, the Kraken, the horse-headed men of the Philippines, and the Mongolian Death Worm. Largo outlines the legend of the Death Worm and points out that although expeditions to find the creature have come back empty-handed (and more importantly with their hands still attached), locals are convinced of its reality.

“However there is a creature called the ‘Bobbit Worm’ (I am not making this up, although I cannot be sure that no-one else is) that has a similar MO to the MDW: it lives in the ocean depths buried under the sand ready to leap out and slice any passing prey in two. These unlovely creatures grow up to ten feet long and live for over 100 years.”

Got you interested? Here’s where to buy it!

    Thanks for the heads up. Never made my Amazon recommendations. Apparently with a lot of little known zoological oddities which interest me as much as the unknown ones.. Just bought it.
