Cryptids, are they real?

Bigfoot, Sasquatch, Yeti, Yerin, Yowie, Loch Ness Monster, Ogopogo, Altamaha Ha, Champ, Nessy…what do all of these Cryptids have in common?

Let’s look at these more closely. In North America, a Bipedal primate has been described by witnesses and most of these creatures are mentioned in Native American folklore. Most are up to 10ft tall, bipedal, has facial features of a gorilla and has dark colored hair over the entire body except the face.

Meet the Gigantopithecus, the largest Ape to have ever lived…

from 9 million years ago to roughly 100,000 years ago when it went extinct. But did it? It is said to have stood up to 10ft tall and weigh as much as a thousand pounds and some scientists believe it was bipedal. The Gigantopithecus was from Nepal, India, China and Vietnam, where most of the remains of the animal have been found. Interesting these countries are the same countries as Cryptids such as the Yeti and Yerin with almost the exact same physical appearance.

The Loch Ness Monster, Ogopogo, Altamaha Ha, Champ and Nessy…there are several others around the world that are very similar Marine Cryptids…have very and a similar resemblance to either the Basilosaurus or Plesiosaur. The Basilosaurus(which means king lizard) is not considered a Dinosaur, but an early toothy whale that lived 35-40 million years ago…25 to 30 million years after the great Dinosaur extinction. It was 50ft long with large teeth and a horizontal tail much like whales and dolphins of today. The Basilosaurus description is remarkably close to the Altamaha Ha. The Basilosaurus was a Dinosaur of the Triassic period and went extinct during the Dinosaur extinction event 66 million years ago. However, there have been some fossils that have been discovered that put the Plesiosaur having survived the extinction event which has been very controversial in the scientific community. The Plesiosaur was up to 50ft long, extremely long neck, small head and four flippers. It resembles descriptions of the Loch Ness Monster and Ogopogo. Did the Basilosaurus and Plesiosaur go extinct? Or are they the sea, lake and river monster being reported?
