Site Post 3: The Jersey Devil

I LOVE cryptids! The Jersey Devil in particular is my favorite because its Jersey’s very own monster. The origin story behind the Jersey Devil offers everything for horror/true crime/ cryptid junkies like myself: murder, monsters & mayhem. If anyone is interested, checkout episode 314 of The Last Podcast on the Left: The Jersey Devil. It’s a true crime/ cryptid/ conspiracy/ horror podcast with super dark humor.  The Chupacabra is another urban legend that I have been following since I was a kid because my best friend and I used to watch YouTube videos about it. I never heard the origin stories of Bigfoot but I did my own research after reading about the Kwakiutls’ Dsonoqua cannibals! The study of Cryptozoology fascinates me because as a believer, it’s comforting to know that some people dedicate their lives to proving these creatures exist. This lecture was my favorite out of the five.
