Synopsis

In hindsight, the 2008 Bigfoot hoax in Georgia seemed to many a fairly obvious fraud. But the fact is, sightings of giant "ape-men" occur on every inhabited continent, and if we never explored the possible existence of these mysterious creatures, however fantastic, we might never have discovered any number of real species.

Excerpt

Hidden Animals explores a world of animals unrecognized by modern science. Some are said to be extinct, although reported sightings still continue to the present day. Others have been described, sketched, photographed, and filmed by many witnesses, but have evaded all attempts to capture them for scientific study. Skeptics say that none of them truly exist. This book collects the evidence and lets readers decide that question for themselves.

The audience for Hidden Animals includes anyone interested in nature or unsolved mysteries. Its purpose is to survey eyewitness reports and other evidence suggesting that unknown or extinct species still inhabit the planet today. To balance the account, the arguments of skeptics and some documented hoaxes have been included.

In these pages you will find 93 creatures separated into eight categories. Each entry includes background information on the animal, including eyewitness accounts and any physical evidence collected by researchers. Each selection includes recommendations for further reading, and a selected bibliography may be found at the end of the book. Also included is a glossary defining certain terms used in the text and a “ Who’s Who” of cryptozoology.
