I'm all for it!
Crypto-Zoology is one of the first quasi-paranormal things I got into.

Be a new interesting board to post in. Sounds like a good plan to me.

Could someone explain what this is? I know you said its self-explanatory, but I haven't got a clue.

Cryptozoology is the branch of (para)science that deals with lifeforms that don't fit the standard categories of mainstream sciences or don't have much factual material from professional-level studies on them...

Loch Ness Monster, Yeti/Bigfoot, the duckbill platypus...Just to name a few.

Thanks for the explanation MD! There is something similar in the area that I live, The Jersey Devil, or would that just be considered urban legend?

Is that the story of the town that woke up one winter morning after a fresh snowfall only to find a few miles of small goat-hoof-like tracks all over the countryside?...

...Or am I confusing that story with another?...

There are alot of different stories and supposedly over 2,000 sightings and most of them do mention hooved feet. Sounds like you're talking about the same story.

No the hooves in the snow, was in england I think, or russia, while the jersey devil is a folk myth of a monster in the pine barrens of new jersey, although they could be related in some paranormal way.

Crypto-zoology is a valid science, and if you want to get into it the book "From Flying Toads to Snakes with Wings" is good. It has almost no mention of big-name cryptids, such as bigfoot or nessie, but has a wide variety of other cryptids.

I guess no one (besides those that posted in this thread) is really too interested. I still think it would be a great forum.

let's be serious

How many possible posts can we make about Bigfoot and the Loch ness monster?

Illmatic: I agree, let's be serious. You obviously have more to learn about Cryptozoology if you think it consists of only Bigfoot and the Loch Ness Monster. What about the other cryptids? Such as the Thylacine (Tasmanian Tiger, thought to be extinct but many recent sightings have occured) the Nandi Bear, how about Mokele-mbembe? You see, all i'm saying here is that Cryptozoology is valid and consists of more than just the Loch Ness Monster and Bigfoot.
