I wouldn't really classify this as a criptid. Locals knew of it and had seen bodies and even ate them.

You would have to classify every animal discovered by "the western world" a criptid.

The animal was brought to prominent European attention by speculation on its existence found in popular press reports covering Henry Morton Stanley's journeys in 1887. Remains of a carcass were later sent to London by the English adventurer and colonial administrator Harry Johnston and became a media event in 1901.[2] Today there are approximately 10,000–20,000 in the wild and as of 2011, 42 different institutions display them worldwide

But that's exactly what a cryptid is. It's an animal that some people (say, the "locals") claim to exist that isn't accepted as part of current zoology because a body hasn't been found by "civilized" man.

You're proving exactly what I said upthread. A cryptid is no longer a cryptid once it has been discovered.

So then you are OK saying that every animal in existance was a cryptid?

That makes a cryptid such a general term that it should not be used anymore at all.

If you don't believe that PGF has been debunked, you simply don't want to see the evidence that's been put forth.

I've seen the evidence put forward from both sides and both sides have valid points, but until the so called hoaxers produce the bigfoot costume used I will tend to believe its true footage of a real bigfoot.

For me, it has to be aliens and UFO related incidents. It's mostly because of my own personal beliefs. I admit, I do believe there are other lifeforms out there in the universe (though I'm not so strong in the belief that they're visiting/living on Earth.) Most other paranormal things I don't believe in but aliens are the one that I truly believe in. Maybe I'm some kind of weird hypocrite.

I also feel there is way more life out there in space then we could ever imagine, but i personally feel they have visited us. :alien:

I also love the nessie storys/lake monsters and every summer when I go up to the lake I think what could be lurking below the murky waters. :cry:

Big foot is one of my favorite crypto's but a lot of the fake footage around on you tube makes it hard on legitimate footage and puts all the hard work done by some of the sasquatch hunters into question.
