Riassunto: Dozens of strange animals have been discovered since the beginning of the 19th century when Georges Cuvier, the "Father of Paleontology," categorically stated his doubt that any large animals were still unknown. In this book, translated and abridged by Richard Garnett, Heuvelmans examines the evidence about animals in lost or little-known worlds?still undiscovered or unrecognized by science. He traces the history of the moa, the giant sloth, and the mammoth, and tracks down the Ape Man of Sumatra, the Not So Abominable Snowman, the Incredible Australian Bunyips, and the Little Hairy Men?enlivening (if that is possible!) his search with 78 drawings and 32 halftones.
Recensione: This is the most scientifically rigorous and complete books on recently discovered large animals -- such as the Pleistocene Peccary (the largest of all hogs, believed to have been extinct since the last age but recently discovered in Paraguay) -- to various possibly soon-to-be discovered megafauna such as Yetis, Sasquatchs -- and maybe even Mammoths.
If sensationalized and cheap TV shows about "mysterious animals" nauseate you, but nonetheless leave you with a nagging feeling that there might be a large critter lurking beneath the copious serving of tripe, this is definitely the book for you. Or if (like me) you've done eight years of fieldwork in zoology, it will make you want to accompany Dr. Heuvelmans on his next expedition. Highly Recommended.
