Legend of the Cryptids Wikipedia

This is a
list of cryptids, which are
animals
that
cryptozoologists
believe may exist somewhere in the wild, just are not believed to exist past
mainstream scientific discipline. Cryptozoology is a
pseudoscience, which primarily looks at
anecdotal
stories, and other claims rejected by the scientific community. While
biologists
regularly place new species following established
scientific methodology, cryptozoologists focus on entities mentioned in the
folklore
tape and rumor. Entities that may be considered cryptids by cryptozoologists include
Bigfoot,
Yeti, the
chupacabra, the
Bailiwick of jersey Devil, the
Loch Ness Monster, and the
Mokele-mbembe.

Scholars have noted that the Cryptozoology subculture rejected mainstream approaches from an early engagement, and that adherents oft express hostility to mainstream science. Scholars accept studied cryptozoologists and their influence (including the pseudoscience’due south association with
Immature Earth creationism),
[1]


[two]

noted parallels in cryptozoology and other pseudosciences such as
ghost hunting
and
ufology, and highlighted uncritical media propagation of cryptozoologist claims.
