What is cryptozoology and why are we devoting a valuable page to it?
Cryptozoology is defined as the study of creatures whose existence has not
be substantiated. An honest politician would be one example, but the most
popular exhibits at an imaginary Crypto-Zoo (which, if it existed, would have
to be located in Roswell, New Mexico) would be the Abominable
Snowman, the Loch Ness Monster, and Bigfoot.
While the origins of these cryptozoological creatures predates the
Super70s, interest in them nearly hit mythological proportions in the
middle of our favorite decade. TV documentaries and books featured our
unsubstantiated friends (the animals and the authors). Even
t-shirts were adorned with the adorable Bigfoot.
Where Are They Now?
If we knew the answer to that, we'd write a book too! You don't hear
much about them anymore, presumably because they were all lost at sea
somewhere in the Bermuda Triangle. But
that is another story.
