Gef, The Talking Mongoose

“I am a freak. I have hands and I have feet, and if you saw me you’d faint, you’d be petrified, mummified, turned into stone or a pillar of salt.”

During the early 1930’s, a family living in a remote farmhouse on the Isle of Man claimed multiple encounters with an elusive 79-yr-old talking mongoose named Gef.

Gef was investigated by the two leading psychic researchers of the era — Harry Price and Nandor Fodor — neither of whom were able to draw any definitive conclusions about the case.

Whether cryptid or poltergeist, tulpa or hoax, Gef was undeniably one thing — utterly unique. Let us join together to celebrate the wit and wisdom of this archetypal trickster!
