So, I recently got this book from a Coast to Coast guest WIlliam Gibbons called "Missionaries and Monsters". As the title says, it's about missionaries to remote places that have encountered cryptozoological creatures. I bought it even though I'm not a christian anymore and wasn't dissapointed. Anyways, it's a small, but interesting book with lots of new material. Near the end of the book he spent a page or two on the Nepal Dragon, a creature that has seemingly not been discovered by the internet yet.

People describe it like a long fat snake or lizard, with a huge mouth but no limbs. Natives claim that if you walk in front of it's mouth it can suck you in from 10-15 feet away, like a Bass or Lionfish.

I would recommend this book to anyone who likes mystery creatures.

Karl Shuker talks about this thing a bit too in his book Mirabilis (also a great read if you're into this kind of stuff, can't recommend anything by him enough). One of his theories is that it's a crocodilian, adapted to a land-based ambush predator lifestyle. Personally, I find its existence in general more unlikely than most cryptids, but it's interesting to note that with a modification or two (the kind someone looking from a distance and in awe of what they're seeing might miss), this thing's design wouldn't be completely unprecedented in nature. The Thaumatichthyidae or wolftrap anglerfish is a deep-sea predator with a glowing "lure" in its mouth, it hunts by sitting in the water column with its mouth open, waiting for prey to swim right into its jaws.
