Summer Salon Series: "Hidden" Animals: An Introduction to the Science of Cryptozoology with David George Gordon
Saturday, July 28, 2018
Cryptozoology, the systematic study of so-called “hidden animals,” owes its origins to free-thinking Bernard Heuvelmans, a French-Belgian zoologist in the late 1950s. Since then, Heuvelmeans’ followers and peers have studied numerous unexplained creatures including the Sasquatch, as well as 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. This presentation describes the state of our understanding of these strange entities and more, including recent evidence of sea monsters off the Washington coast.
