Up where I come from (MA) We had the Dover Demon, which was sighted only a few times back in the 70s. Of course, it's not a "mainstream" cryptid but it was well known in New England.

She stands out in a crowd, she thinks out loud to save her breath, with a portrait of her parents death.

The Bloop, I don't know if any of you people will consider it a cryptid, but the sound came from an animal right??
I think it needs more recognition because its the only cryptid I know that scientists didn't snub . ;)

I have heard of both the Dover Demon and the Bloop, both very interesting. I think I will look into them some more now. =)

As I was standing on the stair,
I saw a man who wasn't there.
He wasn't there again today.
Oh I wish, I wish he'd go away.

The Crying Wolf sounds more like folklore than a cryptid to me. Interesting story though, thanks. =)

Fear Liath was pretty fascinating. Just from reading the Wikipedia article I learned stuff that had nothing to do with it, lol.

Wow, so Burrunjor is basically like a T-Rex? Interesting. =3

Thanks guys.

Oh yes. I've heard some excellent stories from my Australian mate:

- One friend of a friedn story states that a farmer once found a half-eaten bull just outside the torn wire fencing.
- A tourist was once, alledgedly, witness to a pair of the animals in the bush.

Australia seems to have a lot of great cryptids. I don't think there's anything else quite like the bunyip. xD

Samuronin: There's contention over the Bloop's source.  Some scientists say it sounds living, others say it could have been generated by shearing ice.
