No joke. I found a copy of Animals: 1419 Copyright-Free Illustrations, by Jim Harter in the Trash in Huntington West Virginia. I was in awe when I saw it. I had wanted this book since the Clandestine Mysteries.
Ancient Aliens also used the Foraminifera from the STS CD (Sea Urchin) in an episode about unknown creatures found in the ocean in the 1800’s.
