Cryptids are flora and fauna that "Mainstream" "science" does not recognize as "valid" or "legitimate." Alghough they are wrong. Some of these madjestic beasts live within the hollow earth, sadly some have gone extinct, and others are severely endangered and lack funding for appropriate conservation strategies due to lack of mainstream acceptance. Some filthy Trueists would have you believe these are Mythical Creatures, but I know what I saw dammit. I know what I saw.
