What is cryptozoology? Translated from the Latin, it means "The study of hidden animals". Any research on creatures such as NESSIE, BIGFOOT, YETI, CHUPACABRA, etc would fall under the heading of "cryptozoology". It's a great source of interest for those of us here at MONSTROS MADRE. These creatures are out there, and they have yet to be properly studied and observed.
Here are some of our favorite links on the subject, as well as some lovely photographs...
