The Search for “Hidden” Animals

Cryptozoology, the study of so-called “hidden animals,” owes its origins to Bernard Heuvelmans, a French-Belgian zoologist in the late 1950s. 

Since then, Heuvelmans’ followers and peers have studied numerous unexplained creatures including Australia’s Yowie, Scotland’s Loch Ness Monster, the Abominable Snowman, or Yeti of Tibet and Mbolel Mkembe, a miniature long-necked dinosaur, reportedly from the central African swamps. 

Join David George Gordon, author and naturalist, as he describes the state of our understanding of these strange entities and more.
