Brent Swancer


Brent Swancer is an author and crypto expert living in Japan. Biology, nature, and cryptozoology still remain Brent Swancer’s first intellectual loves. He maintains a special scientific interest in isolated ecosystems such as islands and lakes, and is also particularly interested in rare, unique, obscure, or unusual animals. Although he has a special place in his heart for Japanese cryptids, his cryptozoological interests are quite diverse, running from Sasquatch and giant snakes, to Tasmanian tigers and creatures of the deep. Swancer advocates a critical approach to cryptozoology, and hopes to see it become more accepted as a legitimate scientific field. Brent Swancer is currently a teacher in Japan. He is also frequently involved in researching the effects of introduced or invasive species on indigenous wildlife in Japan.
