Learning the legend of the Jersey Devil in my youth probably led directly to my interest in Cryptozoology. I've even lived in at least 2 place where the creature was seen, and my mother may have heard it back in 1952, during the time of the Gibbstown scare. I've found that because of all of the supernatural elements that have been tacked onto the legend, the Jersey Devil seldom re...

Seldom recieves the respect and attention he deserves from Cryptozoologists. He does seem to be a favourite of folklorists though, for obvious reasons.
