Have we found all the large animals still living in the world? Probably
not, since in the last decade some previously unknown species have surfaced
in Southeast Asia, for example. This page is dedicated to such animals
which might possibly exist in nature but whose existence has not yet been
accepted by modern science. If you are interested in animals which have
never existed in nature (although they may, in part, have been based upon
real animals) such as gryphons and mermaids, please see my
legendary animals page.
Encounters with hairy hominids or "wild men" like the Yeti, Sasquatch, and
Nguoi Rung go back to antiquity and appear in legends throughout the world.
The picture at the top of the page is from the famous Roger Patterson film
of a purported Sasquatch, taken in 1968. (Stories that Patterson's film
was a hoax continue to circulate.)
One hypothesis is that some of
these reports represent encounters with surviving representatives of
a giant ape commonly assumed to have died out several hundred
thousand years ago.
Another persistent type of encounter is with lake or sea serpents. The most
famous lake monster is Nessie, supposed inhabitant of Loch Ness in Scotland.
Many animals have gone extinct over the last few hundred years as a
result of ecological disruption caused by humans migrating to new environments
or direct attempts to exterminate "problem" species. An example is
the marsupial wolf or Tasmanian Tiger (Thylacinus cynocephalus).
This carnivorous marsupial was hunted to extinction in the early part of the
twentieth century. The last known living specimen died in captivity in 1936.
Persistent reports of sightings right down to the present suggest that a few
thylacines may still live in the wild.
If you are interested in reading about cryptozoology I suggest the following
books as starters.
- On The Track Of Unknown Animals by Bernard Heuvelmans is
the classic work on the subject of cryptozoology. It was first published in
the 1950s. The 1958 edition has been reissued by Kegan Paul International

some of the most important finds in the last forty or so years, as well as
some new photos.
