What is Cryptozoology and Why It Matters
Cryptozoology is the study of animals unrecognized to exist by science but might actually exist, such as Bigfoot or the Loch Ness Monster. While not inherently a scientific field, cryptozoology can be of benefit to modern day zoology. Unfortunately the field is often mocked due to the unusual nature of the creatures that are investigated. Colin Schneider, one of the youngest cryptozoologists in the world, will make a case for the legitimacy and significance of the field through his five years of experience and studies. Skeptics and enthusiasts are all welcome.
Colin Schneider is one of the youngest active researchers in the United States, at only 16-years-old. He has been involved in cryptozoology and ufology since he was 13 after he visited the International Cryptozoology Museum in Maine. A frequent attendee of conferences about the unexplained, Colin lectures at numerous events around Ohio and Pennsylvania. He also is a regional representative for the Centre for Fortean Zoology and host of the Crypto-Kid radio show on WCJV Radio.
