I was discussing cryptids earlier and just out of curiosity, does anyone have a favourite cryptid or one that is supposed to dwell locally?

Near us, we of course have Loch Ness and its infamous inhabitant.

What have you got?

Also, would Florida Man count as a cryptid that has been proven to exist?

I think big cats kinda count, especially if they are in an area they aren't native too. We frequently have sightings of big cats roaming the wilder areas of the UK, and over several decades a couple have even been shot (a lynx and a panther I think. I suspect they escaped from illegal private collections rather than being part of an established species).

I believe I did look into that one after you'd mentioned it to me recently.

can't forget the Chupacabra

immortalized in song by (rather appropriately) the Super Furry Animals

Small | Large


Have you heard about the bat?
Eats your goat and then your cat
Soon enough you will not smile
When it comes you'll run a mile

 From Mexico it came to me
I saw it down in Miami
It vamps in and out of style
When it comes you'll go loco



then there's the film CHUPACABRA, featuring Treach from Naughty By Nature in the most misguided casting of an evil scientist in movie history (possibly)

If I ever encounter a chupacabra I'll be sure to capture it in out of focus shakey-cam in complete darkness, and I'll post the results here

Same here.  In Niagara.  Yearly sightings that cause a great deal of heated discussion.

Also a Bigfoot-type known as the "hairy man" in indigenous tales.

Wait! Charles Manson used to live here. He's "sort of" a cryptid, right? Sort of? I mean he did used to jump off a two-story bar balcony for beer money and lived. Kinda cryptidy. Or something.

Supposedly, Lake Erie has Bessie the Lake Monster. But its also home to sturgeon, which famously grow large and look prehistoric so there's that.

There's the Ohio Grass Man; a bigfoot type cryptid that lives near Akron.

Somebody already mentioned the Loveland Frog.

At least, that's what Gary Busey told me...

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
