Career Heuvelmans undertook a massive amount of research and wrote On the Track of Unknown Animals, considered by some the most influential work of cryptozoology in the twentieth century. In this work, which is organised geographically, a dominating theme is that folktales and legends concerning unusual and sometimes implausible creatures have often been found to have a substratum of truth.

He argued that those referring to hitherto-unknown species should be investigated scientifically, and criticized researchers who dismiss such tales out of hand. One of his predictions was fulfilled with the recent identification of the African forest elephant as a new species Loxodonta cyclotis. After On the Track, Heuvelmans wrote many other books and articles, only a few of which have been translated into English.

His works sold well among general audiences but saw little attention from mainstream scientists and experts. It consisted of his book on sea serpents with parts of his book on the giant squid and colossal squid added. As he continued his researches he saw the need to "give a name to the totally new discipline in zoology my research implied.

He argued that the most common types of sighting were best explained by mammalian creatures — contrary to the popular "sea serpent" label — and suggested fully aquatic pinnipeds , primitive cetaceans or sirenians as the most likely candidates.

There is evidence that Heuvelmans planned to author a third book on fresh-water cryptozoology, but instead he assisted Irish author Peter Costello to produce his book In Search of Lake Monsters, providing source material from his files. Heuvelmans thought the creature could be genuine and published a formal description, naming it as the new species Homo pongoides.

There was never conclusive evidence given to either substantiate or discredit the Minnesota Iceman, and the idea that it represented a new species of living hominid has never been accepted by mainstream zoologists. In Heuvelmans established the Center for Cryptozoology in France, where his library is housed. In he helped to found the International Society of Cryptozoology and served as its first president. He was also the first president of the Centre for Fortean Zoology.

In he donated over 50, documents, photos, and specimens to the Museum of Zoology in Lausanne , Switzerland. Publications Heuvelmans, Bernard Paris: Plon. Dans le sillage des monstres marins - Le Kraken et le Poulpe Colossal.
