In a development which may spawn celebrations in the forests of the Pacific Northwest and the waters of Loch Ness, the iconic Merriam-Webster dictionary has officially added 'cryptid' to its catalog of words. According to the editors of the reference book which was first published in 1828, the addition is part of a massive update featuring a whopping 640 new entries that include scientific terms like 'Qubit,' pop culture references such as 'bottle episode,' and modern slang like 'stan.'

'cryptid' as "an animal (such as Sasquatch or the Loch Ness Monster) that has been claimed to exist but never proven to exist."
