My newly-posted Lair of the Beasts article at Mania.com lists the top three expeditions of the cryptozoological kind I’d like to go on if I had the chance.
It starts like this…
“Now and again I get asked something along the lines of: ‘What strange creature, which you haven’t yet searched for, would you like to chase down?’ Well, it’s a good question. The world is a very big place and there are a lot of weird beasts out there. But, there are a few specific and amazing animals I’d like to go looking for which, so far, I haven’t had the opportunity.
“Imagine coming face to face with a ferocious, carnivorous monitor lizard with a length of somewhere between fifteen and twenty feet – maybe even closer to twenty five feet – and a weight in excess of at least a ton.
“Not in times long past – since the creature under the microscope is widely assumed to have become extinct around 40,000 years ago – but right now, deep in the heart of the sub-tropical rainforests of Australia. You think it couldn’t happen?”
