Which Crypto would you like to see discovered

With the recent filming of the 'Frill Shark' , never seen alive before ( for cryptic critics, this no way implies that this is a cryptic ) Posters have mentioned other UW creatures that they would like to see next, if possible.

The one mentioned a few times was the Megalodon, a supposed long time extinct shark of enormous size.

Of all the cryptids, ( again, using this in a generalized term ), I think the one I would like to see proof of the most would have to be that, the Meg.

A close second would be the world renowned, Big Foot.

In using the phrase proof, this would mean without a doubt, actual factual evidence. Not supposed possible sightings or grainy pictures, I mean actual - beyond a doubt - proof.

My fascination with sharks, leads me in my choice. Others that would be as well fascinating might be Dragons or possibly the Thunder bird ( pterodactyl style creature ).

Any one else want to chime in with a favorite?

If possible, also include why you chose.

I tend to avoid water because humans are land creatures so the existence of a "Megalodon!?!" wouldn't have any impact on me.

I wouldn't mind seeing a Dragon...And a Griffin would be pretty nifty.

Do mythical beasts count? A Chimera would be cool. Then a Unicorn maybe...Pegasus. What about Vampires? Do they count?

The only 'named' cryptid I would like to see proven as 100% fact has already been proven back about 2001.

This is being the Kraken/Colossal Squid/Giant Squid.

Yeah, a megalodon would be pretty amazing to find. Ofcourse, it will most likely be hunted to extinction soon after anyway.

Something about a giant shark roaming the oceans appeals to me.

Not that shallow attacks would be an issue, but just knowing that your next boat ride could be your last. (excluding all existing possible dangers).

Makes for an interesting voyage, no matter how big the vessel is.

Just reading back, as Dorothy mentioned a Unicorn, it has me thinking...

Being that they probably never existed in the first place ( based on no factual/tangible evidence ), how come there has never be a freak of nature sighting, where the horse in question would have some sort of growth in the same area of where a horn would be on a Unicorn?

I say this, only because with all the animal defects & deformaties noted throughout the world, it somehwhat stumps me that this has never occurred, even on a small scale.

Where even a small deformity on a horses head has not been noted, as to give some relevance to a Unicorn actually existing.

Probably Bigfoot or the Chupacabra

At some point Nessie would be the best.. Because it is so mysterious. But if I could pick *anything*, it would be dragons.. O_o

I'd like to see them find bigfoot. Mainly because I've been looking for him most of my life. I had a possible sighting about 5 years ago, but it wasn't proof even to me. lol

Maybe the lochness monster

I'm having a fascinating reaction to this thread.

As I'm sitting here thinking about what it would be like to sit in front of the television and have a network news anchor say "A group from the University of Washington captured a creature in Southwestern Washington yesterday. The "Pacific Gorilla" as it is being called is a staggering 7 feet tall and was sedated and detained shortly after 2am this morning..."

...I get kind of sad.

As much as I believe that Bigfoot and Nessie and Champ and the Mothman and all these things are real...a part of me would really be depressed if Nessie got pulled up in a fishing net and was laid out on shore for the world to gawk at.

Think about it, we would all sit in front of the TV absolutely amazed for about a week, and then...well...and then we'd never really talk about Nessie again.


Apparently I love crypto because of the mystery...not because I actually want to ever see something discovered.

Go figure.

In no particular order..
Big Foot, Dragons, Unicorns, Phoenix, and Nessie.

Essedarius, I kinda sorta have to admit that I think you're right. Most of the fun with cryptos is in trying to see them. Once you find them the fun is gone......

Bigfoot, then Nessie.
Yeah, some of the interest involves not finding the unknown, but, wow, yes, a "Pacific Gorilla" would be neat to be "officially" discovered.

most definately the chupuducabra

Actually the Colossal Squid is a seperate species of squid, and is significantly bigger than the Giant Squid.

I wouldn't want the Megalodon to be found alive and well because the thought of swimming in water where a predator of that size could be only feet away from you and still unseen would make me wee my pants!

I would prefer the Loch Ness monster to be found alive. The discovery of a creature that has survived from the age of the dinosaurs would mean the possibility of Pteranodons is high. As are the chances of finding Mokele Mbembe and other living dinosaurs.

My thoughts would be... solve the mystery.

If you put other world mysteries into the same perspective, you have to agree, that solving them would be paramount.

No mysteries are better left unsolved. (IMO)

I would hope if a crypto was found alive and well, that certain safeguards would be taken to protect it.

I'd have to go with the chupacabra and maybe bigfoot....not sure what order. I think a land based creature would have more of an impact on society.

Ay Ay AY, it would have to be El Chupacabra!!! Es el senior muy terrible. I am certain he hangs out near Taco Bell and I hope they find him soon. El Chupacabra is the coolest crypto dude in town and if they ever find him I wana shake its hand. Drop the chalupa and find el Chupacabra!!! Hmm ... I wonder if he likes little Chihuahuas.

El Chupacabra is cool because it is unlike all the others. Nessie, a big dinosaur, BigFoot, a proto human ape, El Chupacabra... un Demonio... a true demon. Out at night sucking goats, weird red eyes that can paralyze its prey, scaly skin like a lizard, spikes or quills on his back, looks somewhat dog like but hops like a kangaroo, screeches in a manner to cause fear and nausea. Now that is one cool crypto!

Definitely bigfoot.
I can see it now. Your driving through Washington State on vacation.
"Look Mom, it's a Bigfoot petting zoo. Can we go?"

Bigfoot? Why such a boring creature when we have supposedly
Jersey Devils, Sping Heeled Jacks, and Mothman. If anyone of those creatures were proven to exist i think it would have a much more profound effect than even BigFoot or the Brey Road Beast.
