The Natural Stuff

Centre for Fortean Zoology Expedition to Sumatra, Indonesia

Unknown animals can only be found if willing folk search for them. It is all too easy for westernized people to scoff at ideas of so called mythical monsters existing, but unless they have been out to these remote areas and seen the evidence and spoken to witnesses they really can't have much to say on such subjects.

This expedition was to search for an unknown great ape; the Orang Pendeck, a climbing bipedal relative of orang utan.

Before I went on the trip, I was open minded to the existence of the species, and fascinated with the possible existence. In Sumatra I witnessed first hand the field evidence of a bipedal large ape. I am convinced that the Orang Pendeck exists.
