About this book

David C. Xu's Mystery Creatures of China allows cryptozoology researchers and enthusiasts to access information about some of the most intriguing mystery animals on the planet. The author has collected sighting reports and historical data from across all of China to bring the English-speaking world new accounts of fascinating encounters with strange and curious beasts.

Many of these mystery animals have never before been presented in Western cryptozoological books or articles. From lake monsters to man-apes, mystery cats to dinosaur-like beasts, the four-winged bird to the blood-sucking blanket-like xizi, there are a multitude of mysterious creatures to enjoy and analyze. The author has created a doorway into the hidden zoology of China in expectation that others will take up the cause and seriously explore these biological mysteries.

With over 100 mystery animals listed in 98 sections (categorized into aquatic, humanoid, carnivorous, herbivorous, reptilian, and winged cryptids), Mystery Creatures of China will amaze, intrigue, and delight anyone interested in cryptozoology and Chinese folklore.
