In Search of Real Monsters

Adventures in Cryptozoology Volume 2

By Richard Freeman

Join a Fascinating Adventure on the Hunt for Mythical Animals

From animals long believed extinct, to monsters that we thought never existed-- this book acts as both a guide to, and unbelievably true account of legendary cryptids.

Globetrotting adventure for mythical animals. Cryptozoologist Richard Freeman has spent years researching and tracking down mythical monsters. In this book, he recounts riveting monster hunt stories; through the dense forests of Sumatra on the trail of a mystery ape known as the orang-pendek, to Tasmania in search of the thylacine or Tasmanian wolf. Every corner of Earth has its own monster––even in the traceless Gobi Desert as he searches for the Mongolian death worm, a creature so feared by the nomads that it can send a whole community into a panic.

Expert advice to start your own hunt. The author provides you with excellent advice on how to carry out your own cryptozoological expeditions from scratch. This includes advice on what equipment to take, inoculations, how to choose which mythical animals to hunt, planning ahead and the importance of getting good local guides to name a few.

Inside, you’ll find:

  • A deep dive into whether extinct animals are truly extinct
  • A journey beyond a textbook definition of the world’s largest animals
  • A ton of advice, including information on how to join the Centre for Fortean Zoology

If you enjoyed Richard Freemans previous book, Adventures in Cryptozoology; or liked titles such as The Compendium of Magical Beasts, The Zoologist’s Guide to the Galaxy, or Chasing American Monsters, you’ll love In Search of Real Monsters: Adventures in Cryptozoology Volume II.

Adventures in Cryptozoology

Discover the Science of (not so) Imaginary Creatures

“The sheer depth of material covered in its pages is amazing”….” ―Fortean Times Magazine

#1 Bestseller in the Occult and Unexplained Mysteries

This is a book about monsters. From an early age we are taught that monsters do not exist. The reality is that monsters walk the earth today.

Explore the world through its most unlikely creatures. Cryptozoology, the study of hidden, monstrous, and legendary animals, is truly the art of discovering the unknown. Richard Freeman, Zoological Director of Centre for Fortean Zoology, has explored the corners of the five continents on the search for creatures that many people believe are non-existent. In this book, he shares the exciting stories of his investigations of the Yeti, Mongolian Deathworm, Loch Ness Monster, Orang-Pendak, Ninki-Naka, and more.

The line between myth and reality may be more narrow than you think. Cryptozoologists throughout the years have studied unknown species of reptiles, lake and sea creatures, apes, and hominins. The science and history of this field of study includes examples of creatures that were once thought to be mythological, but that have since been proven to exist.

Our monsters and ourselves. The history of fabulous beasts and our searches for them is a history of the cultures of the world and the secrets we keep. If you’re ready to begin your search for Sasquatch and learn to hunt monsters, Adventures in Cryptozoology is your guide.

In these pages you’ll find:

  • Tales of mythical, extinct, and out-of-place creatures
  • Hints about Bigfoot and other ape-men
  • Tips for equipping your own cryptozoology adventure, including all the gear, field craft, and resources you’ll need to record your findings
