The fossil jaw of Panthera atrox can be seen in the left hand of the Joseph Leidy statue that stands in front of The Academy of Natural Sciences of Philadelphia in Pennsylvania. Have you spotted any other similar hidden treasures across America or around the globe?
A remarkable photographic image has been snapped on the morning of June 13, 2006, in a woman’s backyard in the Midwestern state of Nebraska. KETV-7 in Omaha broadcast the picture on June 14, and it appears to be an animal unlike any most people have seen locally. In the short dispatch, the Nebraska news staff report that: Mary Ann Carta lives near 138th and Hamilton streets, and she took some pictures of the animal that she saw. She said it could be a bobcat, but it has her scared about taking her morning walk or allowing her grandchildren to play [...]
The background story to the "Hand of Bigfoot" involves Tom Biscardi’s obtaining of the hand on April 19th, 2006, in a Pocatello meeting with a self-described “true world adventurer.” Looking like a sideshow gaff, a created work, it is generating a lot of interest, not because it is proof of Bigfoot, but because it appears to be further evidence of Tom Biscardi’s Las Vegas promotional origins. The hand Biscardi has came from the longtime but only recently covertly active Sasquatch investigator Don Monroe, who some say is in his 50s, while others say, his 70s. Monroe reportedly has had this [...]

Today, media began carrying reports that Bob Olson, a Cass County grater operator has found Bigfoot tracks near Deer River, Minnesota, and NBC-TV 4 local news did a good segment on his find. Olson first heard about the tracks from his granddaughter, relocated them and made casts of two of the 15-inch prints, which make the 6-foot-5-inch tall man’s size-14 feet look small. A report in the Herald-Review of Grand Rapids gave more details. The site is remote and near Six Mile Lake Road in eastern Cass County (just west of Ball Club). Carloads are coming to view the large, [...]
Australian cryptozoologist Debbie Hynes has sent along the following update to be shared with you: There have been a lot of sightings down there. There are two thylacine "hot-spots" in Victoria. One is the Portland area – as far inland as Ozenkadnook and west as far as the Koorong, a coastal national park in South Australia, next door to Victoria. The other is he so-called Foster-Wilson’s Promontory-Wonthaggi "Triangle". The animal (thylacine?) is part of local legend, being known as the "Wonthaggi Monster", and the small country town of Foster even has a billboard on its outskirts boasting of "Coming Attractions".

The International Cryptozoology Museum (ICM) is sharing its contents through the end of 2006. Over 100 of some of the most significant large and small items from the ICM’s collection are included in my specific room at the new Bates College exhibition, “Cryptozoology: Out of Time Place Scale.” Then, in October, the objects from that gathering and the other artists’ collections move to Kansas City. The entire traveling exhibition will be there through January 2007. Some of the items from the International Cryptozoology Museum’s collection, contained in my installation at Bates, probably will include: – 8 ft-tall, 500 pound “Crookston [...]
