Once again, I've been in contact with cryptozoologist Adam Davies this week and he told me in confidence of a very exciting new development in his research of the Orang Pendek, Sumatra's mystery ape. Moments ago he forwarded me a statement that was only just released to the press. After five expeditions to the Sumatran jungles in search of this creature, Adam and his team have finally gotten strong scientific evidence that this is indeed an unknown and undiscovered species. Congratulations, Adam! Well done!
I was in touch with cryptozoologist Adam Davies today and he told me that he'll be leading an expedition to India in search of legendary ape men known locally as the Mande Burung (forest man). The date for expedition has been confirmed for the last week of October, 2010.
The long-awaited (was anyone waiting?) second part of "Cryptids in Suburbia". My apologies for the extended delay, but it does feel good to be writing again and I plan to resume blogging on The Paranomalist frequently. Read on!
Mystery animals, alien big cats, thunderbirds, pterodactyls, and other cryptids appearing in highly populated areas? What are we to make of such reports?

The Tomten were no more than 3 feet tall and wore pointed hats, which we've of course come to associate with gnomes and similar creatures. Grandma insisted they were real. Did she really see these little guys, or was she drinking too much glogg? Read on and find out!
This Sunday, October 25 at 9 PM EST, the History Channel's popular MonsterQuest will air their long-awaited episode about Adam Davies' and Dr. Ian Redmond's journey to the Himalayas in search of the Abomidable Snowman. I was in touch with Adam recently and hope to speak with him soon about his Himalayan expedition, as well as his recent Sumatran expedition in search of the elusive Orang Pendek.
In June of this year I emailed famed West Coast psychic Nancy Bradley (www.nancybradley.org) after reading a very interesting account of a Bigfoot encounter that she had as a girl while vacationing at her family’s summer cabin in Lake Owassa, NJ. For those of you who are unfamiliar with New Jersey, or who’s only familiarity with the Garden State is driving past the reeking factories along the northern stretch of the NJ Turnpike while passing through, you might be surprised to know that much of the fifth smallest state (and most highly populated per square mile) contains many miles of...
