The first in a series on mystery animals–the what-is-its, wangadoodles, nondescripts, and whatzits of popular journalism. Not the usual sea serpents and wildmen of silly-season stories. This first post is on mystery mammals. Future installments will cover birds, insects, aquatic creatures and reptiles.
