Ultimate Expeditions Mythical Beasts will amaze you with the facts behind chimeras, chupacabras, and more—including 67 pieces to build 8 of the creatures, and a removable diorama!

Imagine if the monsters of mythology were real. What if there really were fire-breathing Chimeras in Turkey, or blood-sucking Chupacabras in Puerto Rico? After uncovering a mysterious fossil that appears to be the remains of a mythical animal, student archaeologist Kimberly Raleigh travels across the globe to uncover secrets about beasts long thought to be the stuff of fantasy.

Fascinating fun facts, newly unearthed archaeological findings, and vivid illustrations link these mythic beasts to modern-day animals and are sure to ignite the imagination of any inquisitive mind. In addition to the detailed profiles, Ultimate Expeditions: Mythological Beasts features a 3-D paper model for 8 of the creatures, enabling you to get up close and personal with these thrilling beasts. The beasts:
  • Basilisk
  • Kraken
  • Chimera
  • Pegasus
  • Hydra
  • Minotaur
  • Sphinx
  • Griffin
  • Manticore
  • Long
  • Catoblepas
  • Ahuizotl
  • Ogopogo
  • Yowie
  • Chupacabra
From the remote mountains of Turkey to high in the Himalayas of Nepal to the small rural villages of Puerto Rico, a globetrotting adventure awaits!
