About this book

Zooform Phenomena are the most elusive, and least understood,
mystery `animals`. Indeed, they are not animals at all, and are not even animate in the accepted terms of the word, but entities or apparitions which adopt, or seem to have (quasi)animal form.

These elusive and contentious entities have plagued cryptozoology - the study of unknown animals - since its inception, and tend tobe dismissed by mainstream science as thoroughly unworthy of consideration. But they continue to be seen, and Jonathan Downes - the Director of the Centre for Fortean Zoology - who first coined the term in 1990, maintains that many zooform phenomena result from complex psychosocial and sociological phenomena, and suggests that to classify all such phenomena as "paranormal"
in origin is counterproductive, and for researchers to dismiss them out of hand is thoroughly unscientific.

Author and researcher Neil Arnold is to be commended for a groundbreaking piece of work, and has provided the world's first alphabetical listing of zooforms from around the world.
