There is a nice article in the London Daily Telegraph about scientists who spend their lives in search of new and/or rare species. The article deals with mainstream scientists searching for everything from new species of opossum to insects as well as cryptozoologists looking into the animals of legend such as the sasquatch, yeti, and Loch Ness monster. Dr. Jeff Meldrum of Idaho State University is mentioned prominently.
Surprisingly, the article does not make sport of the cryptozoologists. Kudos to Helena de Bertodano, the writer, for a nice job.
It is a good read. You can access the article here.
