Daniel’s latest Junior Skeptic cover illustration for his story “Mammoth Mysteries Part Two,” bound inside Skeptic Vol. 21, No. 4). The image is a digital painting depicting an American Mastodon. The story continues Part One‘s intellectual history of the discovery of mammoths and mastodons and the startling truths these fossils revealed about extinction, evolution, and time. Daniel also discusses 19th century media hoaxes that claimed mammoths were still alive—and critically considers far-fetched cryptozoological claims that this might even be true today.
The upcoming issue of Junior Skeptic—Part One of Daniel Loxton’s two-part story “Journey Inside the Fantastical Hollow Earth,” bound inside Skeptic Vol. 20, No. 1—features this spiffy new digital painting!
