Cryptids refer to the animals/creatures that have been rumored to exist in various parts of the world but most notably in the United States. People who study the potential existence of such beings are referred to as 'cryptozoologists' who work in the field of cryptozoology, which connects with other pseudosciences, such as aliens and UFOS, and ghost hunting. The study of cryptids is often linked to the various folklore found within many cultures across the globe. There are also some instances of potential visual proof, such as grainy video footage or photos. Cryptids are noted to inhabit water, air, and land, and they include the famous Mothman, Loch Ness Monster, and Bigfoot.
