Belgian-French scientist, explorer, researcher, and writer probably best known as "the father of cryptozoology". His 1958 book, "On the Track of Unknown Animals" (originally published in French in 1955 as "Sur la Piste des Bêtes Ignorées"), is often regarded as one of the best and most influential cryptozoological works.

Heuvelmans's wife was the novelist and artist Monique Watteau; she was also the main illustrator of his books. They divorced in 1961, but remained friends and colleagues. Heuvelmans eventually converted to Buddhism. He died on 22 August 2001.
