This creature is a cross between a bat and a possum. It has a long black tail, brown fur with short bat wings. On its head are two short horns and it has long fangs which poke from its mouth. The Gerota lives in the caves of Catlin in New Zealand. The creature was discovered by Lester Rowntree who displayed a stuffed Gerota as a part of his roadshow across New Zealand in 2011. There is a possibility that the Gerota is a Jenny Hanniver, a hoax stuffed creature made to look real.

Did you find Gerota interesting? If you are skilled in art, then why not draw a interesting and exciting picture of the Neutral Gerota and send it to this website. Could such tales of recent sightings be simply false? Perhaps there is some truth in these serpents, Bigfoots, spirits and other creatures of the paranormal. Watch National Geographic's Paranormal: Bigfoot and decide for yourself. And if you're that way inclined with Bigfoot check him out in the horror movie Night of the Demon (1980). Oh but its not Bigfoot but a Fearsome Critter? Well take a look at them in Fearsome Critters by Richard Svensson or watch the Walt Disney film Paul Bunyan (1958) for some lumberjack folklore. Other contemporary mythical animals appear in the video game Red Dead Redemption: Undead Zombie Nightmare.
