THE BEASTS THAT HIDE FROM MAN:
SEEKING THE WORLD’S LAST UNDISCOVERED ANIMALS

BY KARL P.N. SHUKER, PH.D.

New Evidence of Mysterious Creatures

   
  Cryptozoology -- the study of hidden animals -- is gaining attention thanks to a startling number of zoological discoveries. Karl P.N. Shuker has collected evidence of mysterious, somewhat mythical creatures in The Beasts that Hide from Man. Shuker provides entertaining, solidly researched tales about extraordinary animals such as: the dobhar-chú, Ireland’s murderous master otter; Mongolia’s death worm, which reportedly electrocutes its victims; he blood-drinking “death bird” of Ethiopia; the tzuchinoko, a bizarre Japanese snake with a bounty on its horned head; sea serpents from around the world; hairy reptiles, furry fish, living unicorns, and more. Shuker also provides a supplement to Bernard Heuvelmans’s checklist of cryptozoological animals, which contains updated information on unknown creatures.
