Beastly Encounters by Michael Buckley
Approx. 20,830 words.
Published on April 17, 2012.
The author indulges in the sport of tracking strange creatures to their lairs--including an unknown mammal in Bhutan, an ugly waterbird in Cambodia, a bizarre primate in Borneo--and the biggest fish in the world, encountered in the Philippines. Not zoology--more like cryptozoology--coming face-to-face with near-mythical creatures.
