cryptozoology

Cryptozoology is the study of animals that haven’t been proven to exist. In Greek, it quite literally means “the study of hidden animals”. Creatures (or cryptids) can often be broken into one of 3 groups: prehistoric or extinct creatures (dinosaurs, etc), mythical creatures such as Bigfoot or Nessie and finally mutated or very different versions of common creatures (such as phantom cats, etc). While Cryptozoology isn’t recognized as an official branch of Zoology, many creatures once thought to be cryptids have actually been proven to exist. A few examples are:

* Okapi
* the Mountain Gorilla
* the Giant Squid
