5.0 out of 5 stars Essential reading...., 1 Feb 2012
As a lifelong wildlife enthusiast I stumbled across a copy of Dr Karl Shukers 'The Lost Ark' back in 1993, a fabulous book indeed on what seemed to be a very overlooked subject. In 2002 the follow-up 'The New Zoo' was published and for some reason I failed to obtain a copy, thankfully the ten years of teeth gnashing since is now at an end with the release of the truly excellent 'The Encyclopaedia of New and Rediscovered Animals'

To say the book is comprehensive really doesn't do it justice, giving incredible insight into the larger denizens of the natural world that have become known to science, or reappeared, since 1900 right up to the present day. The hours of research put in by the Author must be off the scale, no stone has been left unturned.
Many beautiful photographs and drawings are also included, some of which for the first time in a publication.

Whether you have even a slight interest in the subject, or are a wildlife 'nutter' like myself, I would thoroughly recommend this magnum opus. In these dark days of humanity where destruction and extinction are words all too commonly used, it is uplifting to think that there may be yet more wonderful creatures still out there to be catalogued, and we may redeem our jaded history just a little by giving them the respect we failed those we sent the way of the dodo...

An outstanding addition to any cryptozoological collection, Dr Karl Shuker brings us his latest edition packed full of exciting writings from the Fortean World, giving hope that there are fabulous lifeforms still out there we have yet to discover, excellent work, bring on the Mystery Cats!!!!
