Cryptids are something that either you know about or you don’t. If not, today you will learn. In general, cryptids are cryptic beings that cause many to disagree over whether or not they truly exist. To go further in, cryptids are creatures that could possibly exist that barely have any scientific coverage and believers can only depend on shaky camera footage and blurry photos, though most ‘proof’ consists of photoshopped images, trying to prove fake creatures to be real. Still, cryptids can also originate from folklore tales. 

There are many examples of cryptids, the popular ones being the Loch Ness Monster, Bigfoot, and even vampires. It seems like a silly example, but if you remember mentions of the Beavecoon in iCarly then you remember at least one cryptid. There are stories of this creature and some photographic evidence, even if used for humor in a TV show, making the Beavecoon a legitimate cryptid.

The word ‘cryptid’ could bring different thoughts to someone’s mind, such as death and magic, according to Kirsten Wright, a sophomore at FHS. “Off the top of my head, I think of Bigfoot, Loch Ness Monster, mermaids, Mothman, and the beavecoon,” Kirsten continued, proving how popular some cryptids could be, even if just featured in a show for comedic effect. Though from here, Kirsten suggested dragons, ghosts, the chupacabra, and goatman as popular cryptids. “To be a cryptid, the creature should probably just be mix of different creatures. The creature being mythical is a different story.” Kirsten went on to say that she believes jackalopes and krakens are real from the footage people on the internet have provided of them, even if they are still determined just folklore with no true proof of existence.
