Overview

Thanks to an ever-growing number of startling zoological discoveries, Cryptozoology (the study of hidden animals) has become an increasingly hot topic. As researchers probe deeper and deeper into jungles and wilderness areas, they uncover astonishing species of animals and plants that were previously unknown or only the subjects of folklore or rumor.

For years, Dr. Karl P.N. Shuker has been researching these creatures on the borderline of the known. In The Search for the Last Undiscovered Animals, he tells their stories, providing entertaining, carefully researched narratives about these mysterious, mythological-like creatures. Among his astounding subjects:

  • The dobhar-chú, Ireland’s mysterious master otter
  • Mongolia’s death worm, which reportedly electrocutes its victims
  • The blood-drinking “death bird” of Ethiopia
  • The tzuchinoko, a bizarre Japanese snake with a bounty on its horned head
  • The Chinese ink monkey, no larger than a mouse
  • Hairy reptiles, furry fish, crypto-bats, man-eating plants, and more….
Shuker applies a rigorous scientific method to these reports of animals whose existence is not yet formally recognized. Even-handedly, he presents the evidence, then analyzes these eyewitness accounts and second-hand testimony and offers an opinion on whether these sightings are mistaken, the stuff of legend, or clear evidence of creatures who roamed or still roam our earth.
