OLD REVIEW – Dr Karl Shuker – “The Lost ark”

Written in 1993 this book was about the new and re-discovered animals of the twentieth century. This is a book which can be read, dipped into or used as a reference work. It is most readable and fascinating account of some of the world’s weirdest and wildest wildlife. Unlike similar works it is not solely devoted to mammals but covers the whole animal kingdom. It is well researched and authoritative. A must read for anyone interested in natural history, conservation, or even detective stories since that is what many of the discoveries and rediscoveries are. The only improvement I could have suggested would have been a summary appendix in date order but you cannot have everything.

Dr. KARL P N SHUKER (born 1959) is a British zoologist living in the West Midlands, England. He is currently working as a full-time freelance zoological consultant, media consultant, and author, specializing in cryptozoology, for which he is internationally renowned. During the course of his continuing researches and writings, he regularly travels worldwide, and also appears frequently on television and radio.
