Well... I'm sort of a "Cryptozoologist" (
) ... And I'm African (not African-American or black. Yes, being born on the African continent
makes me an African, doesn't it?
Seriously though, looking from the African perspective (and leaving the "American" part to the side), the average African country just doesn't have
the funding for scientists to be full-time "cryptozoologists". There are hundreds if not thousands of Biologists, Marine Biologists and Zoologists,
and from time to time they surely get to work with strange and weird if not mythical creatures... (And dare I say some of these scientists are some of
the best in the world.) They just don't go around calling themselves Cryptozoologists. Which leads me to believe that perhaps a "cryptozoologist"
is a pure Western title...?
