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 these mysterious, somewhat mythical creatures in THE BEASTS THAT HIDE FROM MAN. Shuker provides entertaining, solidly researched tales about extraordinary animals. Shuker also provides a supplement to Bernard Heuvelmans's checklist of cryptozoological animals, which contains updated information on unknown creatures.
