Cryptozoological Creatures

Introduction:Cryptozoological creatures, or cryptids, are those legendary beings that are elusive. They are very rarely seen or encountered. These clever creatures remain hidden most of the time, probably because they know revealing themselves to humans would spell their demise. What we do know of them is mostly due to anecdotal stories, including my own. (See the link below to the true story of "My Encounter with Bigfoot.")

  • 01

    Bigfoot / Sasquatch

    When I encountered the ape-like Bigfoot, I found him or her to be quite stinky, and to have a sense of humor. Bigfoot, or the Sasquatch, as it is often called, ranges mostly in the Pacific Northwest of the US. Sasquatches are usually 8 to 10 feet tall, and have low brows and gigantic, human-like feet. They are extremely strong, nocturnal, reclusive, and quite hairy cryptozoological creatures.

    Yeti /Abominable Snowman

    The Yeti runs around in the Himalaya mountains of Tibet and Nepal. It looks like an ape, and has dark fur. Its feet are larger than a man's feet. It's no wonder that these cryptozoological creatures are rarely seen. They live in extremely remote, very high altitude areas where people rarely go. Sir Edmund Hillary reported seeing large footprints on Mt. Everest when he was climbing it.

    Loch Ness Monster

    Nicknamed Nessie, this cryptozoological lake monster has been the subject of scores of scientific and non-scientific searches. She lives in Loch Ness, in the highlands of Scotland. Some say she is a plesiosaur, which somehow survived, while the rest of her kind became extinct. She is at least 20 feet tall, with a long neck. she makes roars and other unusual calls, while swimming about in Loch Ness, and very rarely surfacing.

    Chupacabra

    The thirsty chupacabra has been sighted in Mexico, Puerto Rico, and the US since 1995. It drains the blood completely from farm animals, leaving just the husks of scores of livestock behind. The name Chupacabra means "Goat Sucker." The most commonly reported characteristic that eyewitnesses describe is a row of spikes down the back of this cryptozoological creature, from neck to tip of tail. It is 3 or 4 feet tall, muscular, and may look rather reptilian.

    Unicorn

    How beautiful and exquisite is the singularly horned unicorn. A light colored, gentle, horse-like creature, the unicorn is very, very rarely seen. It has a horse body, a billy goat beard and hooves, and a lion tail. They say that only a fair maiden can catch a unicorn, as it is overtaken by her beauty, and lays its head in her lap. But, the fair maidens who catch unicorns are very discreet in order to protect the unicorn.
