Who is Jaroslav Mareš?

Ing Jaroslav Mareš is a Czech biologist, traveller and writer.

He graduated from The University of Economics in Prague, getting a degree of Ing. He worked for ČSA in Iran and later in Canada. He has visited 85 countries and organised several expeditions for research of cryptids, such as Kongamato, Nandi Bear, Megalania prisca, Bigfoot, Yeti, Nessie, Ogopogo, Champ, Megalodon, Lusca, Ambazombi and others. In 1978 he organised an expedition to the tepui which probably inspired Sir Arthur Conan Doyle for writing The Lost World.

He also studies dinosaurs and corresponds with the world-leading palaeontologists. Another field of his interest is shamanism.

In 1976 he discovered and later scientifically described the world's strongest carnivorous beetle, Manticora imperator, of the Tiger beetle group. He became a specialist in this group of beetles and later described three more species.
