In this ground-breaking book, noted zoologist Dr Karl P.N. Shuker reveals how the annals of contemporary science contain many recently-discovered, living examples of ancient creatures - creatures hitherto believed to have vanished long ago from our planet. By extension, these 'living fossils' - such as New Zealand's tuatara (a lizard-like dinosaur contemporary) and that famously archaic lobe-finned fish, the coelacanth - provide strong evidence for believing that all is not what it might seem in the world of orthodox zoology.
This book presents some startling and controversial possibilities - including the prospect of living dinosaurs amid the world's most impenetrable swamplands; winged beasts irresistibly reminiscent of pterodactyls and prehistoric giant vultures, long-necked plesioraurian sea serpents, and a plethora of mammalian Methuselahs, ranging from surviving sabre-toothed tigers to living mammoths.
