Episode 46 - Cryptozoology

October 21, 2018

Human culture is full of stories of marvelous creatures hiding in the wilds on the fringe of our understanding. Some are the stuff of local lore while others are world-famous, and some are even thought to be relicts of the distant past. The search for these “hidden animals” can be dramatic, sometimes controversial, and often less-than-scientific. It is the fascinating field of Cryptozoology.

In the news: a tiny dino skull, a fish-bitten pterosaur, evolution in darkness, and a history of kangaroos.
