Creature Weekend 2014

Illustration of a hypothetical sasquatch skull by Thomas Finley.
This weekend (May 16-18), I am on my way to Salt Fork State Park once again for the third annual Creature Weekend conference. This event features a series of presentations on the study of Cryptozoology as a whole, and I had the pleasure of attending the first annual Creature Weekend in 2012. The speakers at this year's conference are field naturalist and Ethnobotanist John Mionczynski, professional costume and effects designer Bill Munns, Idaho State University Professor of Anatomy and Anthopology Dr. Jeffrey Meldrum, and Ohio Bigfoot investigators Tim Stover and Doug Waller. As you can surely guess, I am thrilled with this lineup and I cannot wait to hear the enthralling presentations which they will surely yield. I will post a review of the conference once I return, as well as one of the Ohio Bigfoot Conference (school and theatre-related activities have kept me from having any time to work on blog material). Also, be sure to keep an eye on the Bizarre Zoology Facebook page, as I will be posting live updates of the conference when time allows.

    1. I have not. That's a possibility which cannot yet be discounted, but I do know that DeLoy's Ape (if that's what you were referring to) is almost certainly a spider monkey.
