BARLOY, JEAN-JACQUES (1939-)
With a doctorate in zoology, specializing in ornithology, Jean-Jacques Barloy is a natural history journalist and the author of hundreds of French articles and a few books dealing with cryptozoology, including Serpent de mer et monstres aquatiques (1978), about the Sea Serpent, and Les survivants de l’ombre (1985), about relict populations of hominids. In the 1980s, in one especially important contribution, he used a computer to analyze data related to the Beast of Gevaudan. In France, Barloy often appears on television programs and radio shows to discuss cryptozoology.
