The Real Beasts Behind the Myths

Fabulous animals and birds have fascinated and intrigued men from the earliest times: the Greeks had their centaurs and satyrs, the Chinese their Kai-Lin and Feng Wang, and today we have our Yeti and the Loch Ness monster.

But is there any truth in the myths? Do real animals or real animal behaviour lurk behind the legends? Peter Costello, author of In Search of Lake Monsters, looks at the whole range of strange animals from the seemingly imaginary beasts of prehistoric art such as the Lascaux Beast, through classical myth and medieval bestiaries, through vampires and werewolves to modern monsters like the sea serpent, exploring the possibility that real creatures were the basis of the legends.

The Magic Zoo is an engrossing, enchanting and highly readable look at he imaginary beasts that roam the mind of Man
