Even if you don’t know the word “cryptozoology,” you know some pretty famous cryptids already although you may not realize it. Creatures like Bigfoot, the Loch Ness Monster, and the Abominable Snowman are a huge part of our pop culture references, a fact that does make them more or less, “real.” Most people have some idea of what these creatures “look” like and some understanding of their backstory.
What you may not realize, however, is that there are all kinds of allegedly unknown creatures around the world. And there are lots of people who spend a great deal of time looking for evidence to prove that these animals really do exist. That’s what cryptozoology is all about and, thanks to the Internet, this endeavor can be either an active or an armchair hobby.
Rex Cutty, author of Zombie Apocalypse: A Survival Guide and Vampire Apocalypse: Know Your Enemy – A Survival Guide, takes on the topic of cryptozoology from the standpoint of a long-time, highly interested bystander.
In this basic introductory guide to the world of cryptozoology, you’ll meet some of the most famous cryptids in the business, learn about their origins, and develop an understanding of good evidence versus clever hoaxes. Written in Cutty’s trademark breezy and wisecracking style, be prepared to laugh in places and to pause in others and wonder, “Dang, could that thing be real?”
Cryptozoology, lake creatures, sea creatures, Bigfoot, cryptid canines, flying cryptids, and much more all covered!
