Has Cryptozoology ever found anything, really?

its kind of a waste of time to argue the existance of cryptids though. its easier to prove than disprove. the only way to debunk bigfoot would be to cut down every forest in north america and find nothing, but than people will just say it was wiped out

frilled shark

(people have stated about giant ones but really large ones exist. recently there was a case about a human being found in one)

thats about all i can think of at the moment.

You beat me to the Coelacanth. Geologists still use their fossils as a marker to indicate the age of the rock strata... which certainly questions evolution. If they are using Coelacanth fossils to date the rock, how can they know the true age of the rock strata? To which I am sure they will reply "the rock is that old, so the fossils must be as well". But, how do you know how old that rock is? "Well the fossils it contains, of course".

There have been a Few...

The Dwarf Cloud Rat

This beautiful little animal was seen by biologists only once previously — by a British researcher in 1896 who was given several specimens by local people, so he knew almost nothing about the ecology of the species,” said Lawrence Heaney, Curator of Mammals at the Field Museum and Project Leader. “Since then, the species has been a mystery, in part because there is virtually no forest left on Mt. Data, where it was first found.” The dwarf cloud rat was captured by Danilo Balete, Project Co-Leader and Research Associate of the Philippine National Museum, in a patch of mature mossy forest (also called cloud forest) high on Mt. Pulag, at about 2,350 meters above sea level. It was in the canopy of a large tree. Much of the mossy forest in Mt. Pulag National Park where the biologists found the dwarf cloud rat was logged during the 1960s, and few large trees remain. The mossy forest has been gradually regenerating, but many local people now have vegetable farms there, and some of the mossy forest has disappeared as a result .

The Cuban Solenodon

Since its discovery in 1861 by the German naturalist Wilhelm Peters, only 36 had ever been caught. By 1970, some thought that the Cuban Solenodon had become extinct, since no specimens had been found since 1890. The Cuban Solenodon that was found in 2003, named Alejandrito, brought the number ever caught to 37 .

The La Palma Giant Lizard

Its decline started 2000 years ago with the arrival of humans on La Palma. It appears to have become extinct in the last 500 years. The main causes of extinction appear to have been introduced cats, consumption by people, and habitat destruction for agriculture. The lizard was rediscovered in 2007.

Thought to be Extinct Animals could be considered to be Cyptozoological Discoveries if found in Modern Times , No ?
