There are strange monsters in Indiana. Some are grudgingly called "hypothetical" species by the state's Department of Natural Resources; others are merely exotic, overlooked, or "hidden" animals, that people think are extinct or just not possible in the Hoosier State. Read about:
· Exotic reptiles and fish overlooked on official rosters,
· "Extinct" cougars that refuse to disappear,
· Alien big cats (including lions and black panthers),
· Lake and swamp monsters,
· Freshwater cephalopods,
· Phantom kangaroos and "Devil Monkeys,"
· Bigfoot, mer people, lizard men, giant birds, and
· A 40-foot dragon.
Explore the Indiana monsters that date from the early nineteenth century to modern times. Indiana's creatures will fascinate you as much as the intrepid hunters who stalk them.
