A Surprise of Servicals

Posted by: Karl Shuker on June 4th, 2013
Many different hybrids between the smaller species of wild cat have been recorded over the years, but I would like to mention one particular interspecific (indeed, intergeneric) cross featuring smaller cats here – because, as far as I am aware, when I originally included details of it in the article of mine (Wild About Animals, [...]

Dr. Matthew Johnson: A Question About the “Nephilim/Bigfoot Theory”

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on June 4th, 2013
There are many theories circulating around in the Kingdom of Bigfootdom. The predominant theory is that the Bigfoot are descendants of “Gigantopithecus” which they have a fossil record for in China (i.e., Essentially, a partial jawbone and one tooth).

Speaking of the Mapingauri…

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on June 4th, 2013

One might argue how much faith Oren should put in anecdotal evidence provided to him by 50 or so people who say they’ve had encounters with the sloth. Still, it seems odd that scientists, of all people, would question the search for anything thought to be elusive or even impossible to find. Think of the naysayers who used to scoff every time Carl Sagan said there had to be other planets orbiting other suns in other solar systems; now other planets are discovered so often it’s hard to keep track of how many there are.

Loren Coleman provides a little history lesson on an amazing cryptological find near where another deadly tornado hit last Friday. In December 1970, something which moved on all fours raided a chicken coop, leaving a handprint on the door. Local media called the anthropoid visitor the “El Reno Chicken Man.” The prints baffled the Director of the Oklahoma City Zoo. Next in this roundup, CFZ Australia talks to UK amateur Archnologist Carl Portman, the author of A Daintree Diary, which documents his travels through the rainforest of the same name in far north Queensland on the hunt for the elusive Whistling Spider. In the discussion Portman talks about the spider equivalent of the Night Parrot and Tasmanian Tiger, those ‘holy grails’ of the cryptozoological world. Then we have Jeffrey Pritchett posing questions to Nick Redfern on the highly classified Monster Files, his latest book. That's followed by a review of said tome in Monsters In The Filing Cabinet. It's clear that reviewer John Rimmer obviously enjoyed Nick's latest tale of cryptids and government, but wishes for more first hand action; he wants to see Nick "plunging through the jungles of Porto Rico, risking life and limb in the deserts of the southern USA, or hunting vicious man-monkeys on the Shropshire Union Canal." So do we!
