Third Thursday Lecture Series: The Skunk Ape, “South Florida’s Bigfoot”
October 21 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm
Just in time for Halloween, this presentation explores the cryptozoological mystery of the Everglades bogeyman known as the Skunk Ape. The roots of the Bigfoot/Yeti archetype in cultures around the world will be discussed along with local Native American legends and historic sightings of this odiferous, swamp-dwelling furry humanoid. A Q&A session after the talk will feature local expert Dave Shealy of Skunk Ape Headquarters in Ochopee (author of the recently published “On the Tracks of the Skunk Ape”) and Brad Bertelli of the Florida Keys History & Discovery Center (author of the recently published “Florida Keys Skunk Ape Files”). Both guests will have signed copies of their books available for purchase.
