Everyone loves the stories of legendary creatures that just might really exist. This book relies on the latest information from cryptozoologists, experts who study these mysterious beings, and the counter-arguments are explored from experts who strongly believe they do not exist. Stories from eyewitnesses are recounted, as well. Included in the book are Bigfoot (Sasquatch), Loch Ness monster, Mokele Mbembe (Africa), Kongamato, Shunka Warak'in, Mapinguari (South America), giant squids, mermaids, coelocanthes, and more. An extensive "For Further Investigation" section, offering readers more places to find information, will conclude the book.
A scientific look at the evidence surrounding the myth of the legendary beast. Science requires solid evidence for the existence of a new species - footprints and sightings by local people are never enough. A type specimen must be obtained, which is then described in a scientific journal and continues to be available for theory experts to examine. For modern mammals this normally consists of a skin and skull that show distinctions from all similar specimens. In his book, Dr. Krantz dissects the evidence out there, using 1965 as the starting point. Using science, his discussions center on footprints, sitings, fossil records, and of course the famous Patterson film. He looks at the difficulty in faking evidence, and explores the mythology of this creature.
