In cryptozoology and sometimes in cryptobotany, both pseudoscience, a cryptid (from the Greek kρύπτω, krypto, meaning "hide") is an animal or plant whose existence has been suggested but has not been discovered or documented by the scientific community.

I actually live about an hour from Point Pleasant, WV (used to work there), where all the Mothman stories come from. I always assumed it was either A) people getting drunk and misinterpreting bats and shit that flew too close, or B) people getting drunk and misinterpreting aliens. Or maybe it's demons. I just don't believe in something the size of a full grown man traveling on moth-style wings. Either way, shit's spooky.

>>17335931
9 times out of 10, it's just the local word that got made up before they knew about other sightings. Native Americans didn't know what the fuck a Yeti is, so they just made up their own word: Sasquatch. It's not that they think they're special, they just didn't know there was already a word.

Wendigo is way too far into Quebec, should be more west.

Anyways I wouldn' really call it a cryptid as much as a demon is a cryptid. But the murder/cannibalism of a guy on a grayhound bus a few years back might of been a possesion.

okiefag here. oklahoma octopus is supposed to be a giant octopus living in several of the lakes around here. problem is most of the lakes in oklahoma are man made and less than 75 years old. most assume the legend is based on an actual species of tiny little fresh water jellyfish that were put here, and okies are generally idiots. far more likely to come across a skinwalker or bigfoot or something around here. but as i live near a lake, ill keep my eyes peeled for tentacles.

Some perception bias that leads the brain to see something like a plesiosaur in certain lake features.
Are there older reports of these "plesiosaurs", say, before 1800, when the first more or less complete fossils were found?
>>
>>17337358
That doesn't explain everything else that happened around the time, like the men in black figures that would go around and ask people questions. And if you want to say they were just seeking attention why wouldn't they just make up another story about the Mothman

Might be a little off topic for the thread, but anyone ever gone on a camping trip with friend for the explicit purpose of looking for or interacting with cryptids? I've been wanting to do something like this for a while, but I recently moved and the only person who would come with me is my cousin and my dad.

Every new species is a cryptid until you perform the proper rigor, then it's no longer a cryptid.

However "cryptid" is a pretty loaded term, and often gets attached to things with no real chance if existing. Things like plesiosaurs or 800 lb ape-men who seemingly leave no ecological footprint and don't exist outside of some blurry photographs.

>plesiosaurs

you mean nessie and peise, and similar things?

it's a classic example of the water dragon, nothing cryptozoologist about it if you want to believe at that as a real animal

previously I thought it might be a classical example of sea serpent known to nords, but nah, when I studied that thing it's deeply rooted in paranormal. they know when you're doing photo of them and then hiding, if you bought camera it appears broken, if you do a photo somehow it appears as a gleam of right on photographic film

there are sightings of many kind of such dragons, starting since at least mediaeval times

about the apemen it's not very cryptid either, you're right. it was known as wild man or wooldwose and even appeared in Tolkien under that name, before we got the term Bigfoot

likewise chivalric knights were jousting with it

depends on what you call a cryptid or monster

I can give you some exaples of purely european things
Tarrasque of France, Sea Bishop of Poland

I think the legends of dragons and gargolyes itself started in France too

There was a load of weird shit believe in, like Cynocephali

More about

With "Nessie" are also seen sightings of Kelpie or even Aquatic Apemen

Apemen is even linked to... UFO. There is even winged version of it called Batsquatch on OP's pic

Man realising most "cryptids" are just modern iterations of ancient bestiaries is biggest redpill ever. Same for "UFOlogy", there is no ET life.

Isn't the Kraken literally just the giant squid, though?

I can completely believe that huge-ass giant squid have existed, back when the world was a little younger and more wild. I'll bet anything that Vikings and the Chinese and old sailing ships saw 50+ foot squid. I bet they were real. They might still be.
>>
>>17351282
Yes, pretty sure Kraken legends are just based off giant squid. And like you said, it might be possible larger ones existed, but who knows how much was true and how much was just fishermens' tall tales.

Just wanted to point out that the swamp ape (aka skunk ape) is commonly spotted in Georgia and Alabama as well. In recent years, it's been seen as far north as East TN, where a friend and I saw it back in fall. After relating the sighting to my grandmother, she said her sister, who lives only a few miles away, had seen something similar walk through her yard the previous spring as well (she had woods on 2 sides of her property, it cut across her yard from one patch to the other).

>Wampus Cat, East TN
Same anon from >>17351680
Never heard it referred to as a wampus cat, everyone just calls it as they see it; a black panther. Can confirm, especially in the area of Maynardville, just north of Knoxville. Those things are sighted almost on a daily basis. I never got why they are considered cryptids, everyone around here assumes that someone had a couple of them as pets at one point and they either escaped or were set loose. No one claims it's any type of unidentified species, but I guess it's considered a cryptid since it's not native to the area. If that's the case, though, why aren't boas in Florida not considered a cryptid?
>>
>>17350913
Too far for me but I've found some neat places around Utah Lake and out way of Five Mile Pass, there's Mercer cemetery up on a hill. Creepy campfire remains and weird things on the graves. No headstones, just open or poorly fenced plots.
>>
>>17351729
Probably because there's no proof of the black panthers, but people have caught boas?

Yea cuz its so easy to go catch a wild cat.
In some southern states there are laws protecting these panthers. So if anyone did ever catch or kill one thier life would be fucked as they know it.
Trust me, there is a small population of large black wild cats in a handful of the southern states.
>>

When did I say "catch"? I mean decent photo or video, pawprints, something.

Nah. I'm not dismissing it outright, but I don't buy these stories without more actual evidence.

Ogopogo holds some basis as a mutated creature as the Okanogan lake has a vast network of unexplained/unexplored underwater tunnels/caverns.
Some are so long they are said to/at one point(if not still) connect to the ocean.

Source: local knowledge, lived there for 21 years and have explored some of the tunnels myself.

When I was a kid (6 or 7) on a field trip to The Great Salt Lake I saw a fin in the water. I don't have any proof. The thing is I know I saw it, it wasn't a side glance or anything, it was about 30 to 50 yards away..

This sounds stupid but I just read this after doing a quick google search which gives me an eerie feeling.

anon from East TN again. No one around here bothers with it because there's presence doesn't seem unusual. Most people here don't even know that it's considered a cryptid by people from other areas. One or two will even get shot once a year when farmers catch them eating their livestock. It's not like it's some sort of unknown, unheard of creature, it's just another one of many things in the woods like coyotes, bears, or mountain lions (the latter of which has always been here in small, isolated groups. It was only last year someone bothered coming forward with a trail cam photo of one).

This article gave people I know a good laugh a little while back http://www.outdoorhub.com/news/2015/12/09/tn-officials-confirm-first-sighting-mountain-lion-100-years/
It was funny because they've always been around in the more remote parts, and those who live in the areas they frequent don't bother "reporting" their sightings because it's not considered worth reporting.

Giant eagles are a legitimate thing and only went extinct because the Maoris hunted their food source to extinction, which itself was a giant 140KG Emu.

>Sea Bishop of Poland
Now this one has always interested me. Was it a squid of some sort as would be the most likely option?

The gesturing that it wishes freedom to the bishops could easily just be a dying animal flailing, as could it making the sign of the cross after they granted its freedom.

The question arises though, how long can a squid survive on the surface? Can it even move its own arms in such a manner when having to support its own weight outside of the water?

I would have thought that the pressure differences alone would have killed it very quickly.

>>17351282
It's called the colossal squid and we still don't know just how big they can get as we have only studied dead infants.

The current theory is that they can grow as big as two buses, one in front of the other.
>>
>>17359071
Yes. There is no phenomena that can explain that. Maybe at a push a meteor shower, but those would be common enough for a city not to shit itself over and most of the objects don't even resemble that.

Never mind the fact that meteors don't shoot at each other or deploy hundreds of smaller craft which flew around before eventually docking back in the mothership.

Like I said, that one on the bottom looks like a damn Super Star Destroyer.

Weird shit does happen all the fucking time at oolagah lake. I've been there a lot, and used to trip acid there. I've seen one crazy fucking fish underwater, shit was amazon size.
