I missed a lot of discussion being undead, it appears!  I'm back from the undead, a little sleepy, but I did win second place funniest zombie.  Wheeee!

I rather wondered about the definition of "cryptid", I think it's a bit flexible (does Sharktapus or Piranaconda or Pteracuda count?  No?  Hmmmm, maybe a monster movie swap is in order!  Who doesn't need Godzilla or Mothra in their lives?!).

It's really Ludi's swap, though (I'm just the pencil-pusher!) so I'm going with those definitions, though if your partner wants to throw in something Lemur-related, well, that's rather the nature of swaps!

Welcome officially to the swap, Ludi!

So far my list is pretty standard fare - Jackalopes/Wolpertingers, Yeti (but the "cute" variant!), Nessie, and the Kraken.  I'm still one short...

To all of you on the fence... do it!  You don't want to miss out on your chance and weep bitter, bitter tears as you stare longingly at the (sure to be) amazing gallery!

Oh, man! Another swap I can't join! Yeti/Bigfoot/Abominable Snowman and the Loch Ness Monster are my favorite cryptids! Chupacabra is another. So sad I can't join in, but I will DEFINITELY be checking out the gallery!

The way I think about cryptids and what fits in the definition is as follows...

If anyone one any where in the world still might believe the cryptid in question is real, than it's possible it might be a cryptid.  And since some folks think Bigfoot(s) might be inter dimensional beings and or aliens from outer space it leaves room for interpretation when it comes to other cryptids.  So, when it comes to baku and perhaps some of the other cryptids who are claimed to have paranormal powers, it is possible that though they look like a recognized animal, they may indeed be a separate species.   Part of the reason I love cryptozoology is it is all still open to interpretation and not a closed minded science Grin  Long live odd animals!!
