Mysterious Creatures: A Guide to Cryptozoology, Volume 2
A comprehensive guide to cryptozoology--the quest to identify animals that have not been officially catalogued by science and to place these unknown animals into their proper zoological categories.
Mysterious Creatures covers everything from dinosaurs and the emala-ntouka, an elephant-killing dinosaur-like animal of central Africa, to searches for the Loch Ness monster, Bigfoot, and other cryptozoological hoaxes. Entries about specific animals include the derivation or meaning of each cryptid's name, its scientific name, variant names, a physical description, behavior, description of tracks, habitat, significant sightings, present status, and possible explanations. Illustrations and photographs accompany many entries. The book also includes resources and references for further information.

I only read a couple of entries, but I think Mr. Eberhart should do more research on different entries. Like the Dobsegna entry in particular, as I have researched this topic extensively. He should have included more information about said sightings, quoted them, used the WWF sightings of paw prints on the Jayawijaya mountain range, et cetera. It would be a lot more credible, an it would sound less like it's copy-pasted from some internet post.
