This Foreign Service memo treats a science-fictional subject—the existence of the Yeti, or the Abominable Snowman—with utmost bureaucratic seriousness. Titled “Regulations Governing Mountain Climbing Expeditions in Nepal—Relating to Yeti,” it was issued from the American Embassy in Kathmandu on November 30, 1959.

The terrifying 25 foot long prehistoric shark with a 'spiral' of teeth that worked like a CHAINSAW    Helicoprion had a conveyor belt of jagged teeth that spiralled out of its lower jaw and ripped prey to shreds    Appearance had baffled scientists because no one could work out how the teeth fitted in its mouth
