The book explores the history of each creature, whether it is an extinct or merely exotic species, and the ensuing investigations into its existence. Newton also delves into lesser-known mysteries: a ghost kangaroo; a dead shark on the edge of a lake; "extinct" birds; pink alligators; and El Chupacabra, known mostly for leaving behind a trail of dead animals drained of their blood."--BOOK JACKET."
