The Lost World by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Better know for his Sherlock Holmes novels Conan Doyle also created The Lost World, a series of stories featured in The Strand magazine in 1912. Beginning in April and continuing till November. It featured an expedition of characters in the Amazon in a place where prehistoric creatures still exist.
This seems like one of those stories that everyone knows but can’t remember reading or watching. I have a very vague memory of watching this when I was really young, where trick photography was used to make normal lizards seem huge. Those were the good old days. Sitting in the living room in my pajamas and being amazed by the images coming from my T.V. Set. The book can be found very cheap on Amazon for a kindle edition. Might have to get this if I can bring down my TBR.
