Cameron McCormick, writer on marine monster mysteries and sea serpent superfan, drops into the cabin to talk about the work and influence of Bernard Heuvelmans, remembered as the 'father of cryptozoology.' Heuvelmans was important as an early figure in the codification of cryptozoology, but many of his ideas were to remain unique to him in the decades that followed. Despite his respected status as a pioneer, not many who followed built upon the specific zoological ideas he came up with to explain monster sightings. In this episode we focus particularly on Heuvelmans' classification system for sea serpent sightings. He believed there were (approx) nine different categories of unknown enormous underwater animals.
