Cryptozoology: Out of Time Place Scale

Thanks to Michelle for reminding me that the cryptozoology exhibit at the Bates College Museum of Art opens to the public June 24.

Loren Coleman, of course, has the details at Cryptomundo:
Some of the items from the International Cryptozoology Museum’s collection, contained in my installation at Bates, probably will include: - 8 ft-tall, 500 pound "Crookston Bigfoot," - hair and fecal samples from 1950s Yeti expeditions, - first public American replica of the Homo floresiensis skull, - Yosemite Killer Cary Stayner’s Bigfoot sketches, - Meganthropus and Gigantopithecus Krantz-replica skulls, - Homo erectus newyorkensis replica skull, - art representing Lake Monsters, Sea Serpents, and Mothman, - footcasts of Sasquatch, Yeti, Yowie, Thylacine, and Cryptid Cats, - unique one-of-a-kind cryptid figurines and unknown hominoid bronzes, - historic cryptozoology expedition flags, - Chupacabras wooden figures, - Okapi and Sasquatch 1940s’ enumerations, - rare American and foreign-language cryptozoology books, - rare paper collectibles, - Tom Slick-related objects, - and much more.

Now that sounds like an excellent, well-spent afternoon. If I'm lucky, I'll get down there before Bigfoot actually appears, and they have to move the exhibit to the Smithsonian.

It's not every day you can examine fecal samples from a yeti. At least not in Lewiston.
