Cryptids of North America: Six Urban Legends Terrorizing the American Psyche

Humans have the tendency to see things that aren't real, or at least things we can't explain to everybody else. Very often those things are terrifying creatures of the night; remnants of our time as cavemen and prey. But what if some of them were real?


By definition, a cryptid is an "animal that has been claimed to exist but has never been proven to do so." In folklore however, they mean much more. Be it Big Foot or the Loch Ness Monster, you've definitely heard of a few, and you probably have some opinions. But not all cryptids are as terrifying as the New Jersey Devil. Some are much cuter, and occupy a different place in their region's folklore. 


If you want to learn about a few of the more interesting North American cryptids, have a click through this informative gallery. We're willing to bet you've never heard of the Ohio Frogman. Heck, neither have people from Ohio.
