基本説明

Over 1,000 entries. From Bigfoot and the badigui to the Central Asian wildman, Mysterious Creatures presents an extensive overview of every reported cryptid from around the world.

Full Description

A comprehensive guide to cryptozoology—the quest to identify animals that have not been officially catalogued by science and to place these unknown animals into their proper zoological categories.

In this fascinating two-volume encyclopedia, author George M. Eberhart provides a comprehensive catalog of nearly 1,000 cryptids—unknown animals usually reported through eyewitness accounts and not yet described by science. Cryptids are the stuff of folklore, hoaxes, and genuine scientific breakthroughs. There are 400 now-classified cryptids once considered either extinct or pure fantasy. The cryptozoologist's job is to strip away the myth, misidentification, and mystery—and separate fact from fiction.

Mysterious Creatures covers everything from dinosaurs and the emala-ntouka, an elephant-killing dinosaur-like animal of central Africa, to searches for the Loch Ness monster, Bigfoot, and other cryptozoological hoaxes. Entries about specific animals include the derivation or meaning of each cryptid's name, its scientific name, variant names, a physical description, behavior, description of tracks, habitat, significant sightings, present status, and possible explanations. Illustrations and photographs accompany many entries. The book also includes resources and references for further information.

Over 1,000 A–Z entries ranging from a few paragraphs to several pages, each with bibliography

Over 60 photographs, illustrations, and drawings

A graphic depiction of the geologic time scale for the last 545 million years of Earth's history, including when different types of animals first appeared

An annotated list of over 400 animals discovered since l900
