CRYPTOZOOLOGY

Black Cat

  • Bigfoot Encounters
    You can submit your sighting of Bigfoot, Sasquatch, or Yeti here, even better if you have a video, image, or sound. The site has access to Legends, Hoaxes and Rumors, Newspaper and Magazine Articles, and of course, Sightings. Every cryptid should have such a nice website.

  • BRFO Geographic Database of Bigfoot/Sasquatch Sightings & Reports

  • Cryptid Zoo, a Menagerie of Cryptozoology
    From the site: Cryptozoology is the study of animals and other creatures that have not yet been accepted by science as real. In other words, it is monster-hunting. Cryptozoologists look for creatures like sea serpents and the yeti, hoping to gather enough evidence to prove that these beings exist. They also look for more commonplace animals, such as the ivory-billed woodpecker, the giant vampire bat, the inflatable hedgehog and the pygmy elephant. Creatures that are under investigation by cryptozoologists are called cryptids. Although cryptozoology doesn't get much respect from other scientific disciplines, it has had some spectacular success stories, including the pongo (now known as the gorilla), the okapi (an animal that looks like a cross between a giraffe and zebra), and the coelacanth (a prehistoric fish thought to be extinct).

  • Cryptozoology.com
    Subtitled "the scientific study of hidden animals, this California site speculates about such 'cryptids' as the Grail Bird, the chupacabra, Mothman, and other usual suspects. Includes fictional stories as well.

  • Exploration of Modern Monsters
    This web site is a collaborative project created by students in English 415/516, "Research and Technology in the Humanities," taught by Professor Eric S. Rabkin at the University of Michigan in Fall of 1999. It contains links to monsters of all types: technological, human, ecological, and reanimated. Also includes a Taboo Table, which includes taboos embodied by monsters. A lot of fun!

Bigfoot has been sighted in East Texas for years, especially in the Big Thicket National Preserve. I don't know if Bigfoot is bigger in Texas, but the size of the Preserve is 166 square miles, so good luck to ya!
