I am no expert in Cryptozoology so this is just a serious question for those who are.
In historical accounts and myth, there are tales of amazing creatures such as, for example, a long snake-like dragon that flies in the sky. Sometimes
it is represented as having smoke everywhere all around it, always in curving motion.
In the current day, there are tons of videos now of amazing creatures such as, for example, this sort of snake-like, white-colored
who-knows-what-it-is that flies in the sky. There is now quite a lot of this on film, greatly from South America I think, and there's even a creature
on a NASA clip that looks like it might be or relate to this.
Now the former falls into Cryptozoology I guess because you might find a sketch of that flying snake-dragon-of-smoke in a grimoire or read of it in
myth, and it allegedly doesn't exist. Right?
But the latter falls into UFOlogy I guess merely because it's in the sky. And modern day.
But where do they overlap? Doesn't our ability to guesstimate what might be going on in our environment depend greatly on our past experience or,
lacking that, our vicarious experience -- such as what we might be familiar with from myth?
When a 'ufo' looks more like a creature than a vehicle, and when it is at least reminiscent of ancient stories, wouldn't that slide it into the
