Este libro se aproxima al fascinante mundo de los animales desde diversas materias: la Historia, la Paleontología, la Zoología y la Criptozoología. En esta obra, el autor, además de realizar una recopilación documentada de los animales más asombrosos, se adentra también en ciertos mitos o leyendas sobre animales fantásticos que terminaron resultando reales. Así, por ejemplo, se pasará revista a casos como el del gorila de montaña o el okapi, un pariente de la jirafa que permanecía oculto al hombre en las selvas del Congo. Además de los descubrimientos de nuevas especies, la obra se centra en la reaparición de otras que se creían totalmente extinguidas hace miles de años, y que ahora son llamados de manera informal "los fósiles vivientes." Finalmente, el autor también hace un repaso de los tanto de las anécdotas más curiosas y de los fraudes o las falsificaciones más sonadas en este campo.
