Man or Monster? The TRUTH about Newt Scamander was a biography written by Rita Skeeter about Newton Scamander. In it, she claims that Scamander was never a Magizoologist, but rather this was a cover story allowing him to infiltrate the Magical Congress of the United States of America at the behest of Albus Dumbledore.

In his forward to the 2017 edition of his textbook Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Scamander notes the absurdity of using Magizoology as a cover in the 1920s given the hostility many witches and wizards felt for magical beasts.[2]
