During 1960 in London, at the time of clearing the site for the construction of new residential neighborhood, the long-abandoned mansion belonged to Thomas Theodore Merrylin, a crypto naturalist was sent for destruction. In the basement of the building, the builders found that there were many wooden crates sealed. To their surprise, when they opened the box they began to find out strange mythical creatures inside them.
Merrylin was born in 1782 in a wealthy aristocratic family. He was fond of collecting bizarre things, just like his father Edward and spent his entire life in hunting hidden species all around the world.
The collection also included artifacts of curious origin, that once ruled the world and perhaps better left in past.
Much of the Merrylin's collection dance on the border of myth and reality. It's still a mystery whether most of his artifacts found in Merrylin Cryptid Museum are real.
The wooden crates found in the basement of London contained about 5000 species of flora and fauna. They were dissected and preserved by many scientists.
The largest known species of Darco were found. This particular skeleton belonged to a young male who mourned their dead like humans and elephants.
