Rex Gilroy

Rex Gilroy (born 9 November 1943) is an Australian cryptozoologist, paranormal researcher, conspiracy theorist, and author who, along with his wife Heather Gilroy, has investigated the yowie, the thylacine, the moa, the jogung, the Queensland tiger, the warrigal, the burrunjor, and alien big cats,[1] as well as UFOS. He has also proposed a 'lost' Australian civilization and medieval European and Amerindian exploration of Australia.

He had a sighting of the yowie on 7 August 1970. He "was eating lunch in a clearing near the Ruined Castle rock formation in the Blue Mountains, New South Wales, when a man-sized, apelike creature with orange hair ran across the open ground and gave out a scream".[1] In 1979 he claimed to have been called to a freshly ploughed field by a farmer, where he discovered thirty or so enormous lizard tracks, only one of which was in a condition to be casted.[1] In 2001, Rex and Heather Gilroy made plaster casts of what they claimed to be moa tracks, 9.5 inches long, in New Zealand.[1] The majority of the stories relating to the Australian giant monitor also come from Gilroy.[1]

Some of his cryptozoological theories include the yowie being a surviving Australian Gigantopithecus and certain alien big cats being undiscovered marsupial predators.[1]
