If it's weird, unique, unusual, one-of-a-kind, or wow-worthy
A BION can be a story, or a thing (like an artifact), or a place, or something you see, or something that you can create (like artwork), an animal, a tradition, and of course a person … like YOU.
A “BION” – short for Believe It or Not – is the word we use at Ripley’s to refer to anything that is unbelievable and worthy to become part of Ripley’s lore and collection.
We generally accept submissions into two main categories:
SUBMIT: You want to submit a BION to Ripley’s for possible publication in one of our books, our blog, or any other of our channels.
SELL: You have an exhibit or artifact that you would like to possibly sell to Ripley’s.
