Journalist, screenwriter and graphic artist, Rob Morphy, has been fascinated by cryptozoological phenomenon since childhood. Following a trip to South Africa in 2000, Rob, along with his partner Mike DeForrest, mounted an expedition to the bayous of Louisiana in order to chronicle the legend of the notorious Honey Island Swamp Monster. Soon after the pair founded the American Monsters website in order to catalogue and disseminate information regarding the all of the fabulous beasts which are said to lurk in the swamps, oceans, jungles and other dark corners of the Earth.
Morphy now serves as the primary researcher, author and artist for American Monsters, and has dedicated most of his adult life to the investigation of unknown animals. It is his hope that through the American Monsters website scientists, naturalists, cryptozoologists and amateur investigators from across the globe can share information and evidence instantaneously, resulting in incontrovertible proof that our world is inhabited by creatures that defy the imagination.
Researcher, author and artist, Rob Morphy, shared some of the cryptozoological sightings and data, which are gathered together on the American Monsters site. He reacted to a recent report from China, about an unknown carcass that washed ashore. He believes it fits the description of a Trunko, a hairy, elephant-sized animal with a crocodile-type head and lobster-styled tail.
