Dr Shuker`s Extraordinary Animals Revisited is a must for those with an interest in natural history and cryptozoology. The Book is well researched, easy to read and is intellectually fascinating.

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Michael D. Newton on September 16, 2007
Format: Paperback
Kudos to all involved in bringing this classic text back into print--and to Dr. Shuker for substantially updating it. Any reader interested in wildlife, animal anomalies, and/or cryptozoology will want a copy of this volume in his-or-her personal library. Worth twice the price, and then some.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I love this book! Not only is it long, it has everything in it including Maltese Hammerhead Lizards, the history of the aardvark, feathered desert pythons, and volcano island megapodes. Plus, at the back of the book, there is a reference guide to articles and books. This is a superb cryptozoology book that the whole family can enjoy! (review written by my son, Will, age 10, who was the recipient of this book)

Filled with great info on globsters and rare birds, but the best chapter details out the De Loys ape drama. Much new and exciting info, a great read.
