Famed for hunting the Mongolian Deathworm, the self-made Cryptozoologist Ivan Mackerle receives an excellent review in the Prague Post. Mackerle, 65, and his small band of friends have travelled across the Gobi desert, hacked through the jungles of Madagascar, and scuba dived remote Micronesian islands

Cryptoworld is back!

So its been almost a month, my only defence is that the move from one server to the other took longer than I intended (and a little bit stressful at times). Everything should be running as before, although you will have probably noticed we have

Kefalonia Update Pt 1

Beaches, Caves, Nymphs and Dragons Well, Cryptoworld is back from a well earned break in very-sunny Kefelonia. The island is beautiful and although it is technically a tourist destination, it is really easy to find a quiet spot away from the bright pink bodies –

Kefalonian Vacation

I know I know, it was only a few days ago that Cryptoworld disappeared for a vacation – well although we did sit in the sun and mess around in a swimming pool for a few days, we were busy researching some Wiltshire mysteries, black

Cryptoworld Problems

Thanks to everybody for pointing out there was a problem with the site over the weekend. Something weird happened to the database and caused the pictures in the articles and gallery to stop working. I spent most of yesterday (Monday) trying to work out what

Huge cave found in Venezuela

Researchers have discovered a huge cave in southern Venezuela. The cave named "Cueva del Fantasma" – Spanish for "Cave of the Ghost" is so large, that you can fly not one but two helicopters inside, and land them easily at the base of a towering waterfall!

Loch Ness Monster?

Friday’s Round-up

With the resent wave of TV programs and tabloid interest in all things weird, it seems that more and more people are believing in monsters, ufo’s, ghosts and previously poo-pooed subjects, but why? Are we all so totally fed up with reality TV and stories of war that we need something new to stimulate our tiny minds? Maybe? But I think this is an exciting time, if more people are looking for these things, the greater the chance of actually finding something tangible, and the more evidence they find the more they will want to look. But it’s interesting how we can swing from cynic to believer so quickly. More than half of the UK population believe in UFOs, and a staggeringly large amount of Americans are convinced the US Government are in contact or in league with Aliens. Are they? Should we be worried?

Eyes front... Smile!
