Cryptozoology is the search of animals who's existence has not been proven. This may sound like a scientific field of study however the majority of cryptozoology is dedicated to finding a different kind of animal. Question: What animals does cryptozoology seek to find? Crypozoologists seek creatures such as Bigfoot, Yeti, Lockness Monster, living mammoths and dinosaurs, etc. The POV of many crypozoologists is that these large creatures exist in small or singular numbers in the secluded wilds of the world. The information on these creatures shows that many of these creatures can not exist. Looking at the minimum number needed to breed for a healthy population, can't be met by such large animals without being seen. And even if there was a large enough population the amount of food needed for the population could not be met. The assumptions made are that there are animals out there that we have not discovered yet. This assumption is true, however these animals are mostly invertebrates in the ocean or rainforests, not large mammals or non-extinct dinosaurs.

  1. I agree with this post; it is unlikely Bigfoot and other legendary creatures do not exist. Our world is fascinating as is, but the addition of one of those creatures would be awesome. I'm sure many people believe in this because they are infatuated with the concept of meeting a real-life water dragon and other creatures, an experience that would be reminiscent of a fantasy movie or video game.

  2. Yeah, could you imagine our world over run by dragons and Sasquatches? I just did my post on Bigfoot and one of my concepts was that obviously these creates must breed to still be existing. If our world is not overrun by these creatures, then they must be dieing. How come we haven't found any bodies of any of these crazy lil' creatures?

  3. I agree with the idea that creatures such as Bigfoot and Chupacabra actually existing is pretty unlikely, but I think cryptozoology could be beneficial to the scientific world. Some people dedicate a lot of time to hunting down these creatures and although they may not find the creature they are looking for, there is a chance that they could make other important discoveries about the natural world by visiting the isolated places that these creatures are supposed to live.
