I didn't do TOO bad on this word puzzle, but I'm still not sure what a cryptid is.

Critters that have not been officially accepted or proven "real" by zoologists.

oh, okay. Thank you. I should have looked that word up sooner, maybe I would have done better on the puzzles.

This was a fun quiz. I had no idea what they were either so I looked it up this morning and recognized many creature names that I came across. I had no idea this category of beings had a collective name.

A fun, fun exploration. I discovered there was one cryptid not too far from where I grew up that I had never heard about before.

Good job Spoofus!

Even though I wrote the puzzle, I had no idea what a cryptid was either when I first had the idea! I was just going to do a puzzle on "imaginary? animals", but then found that they did indeed have a name for this group. I figured if you didn't know what a cryptid was, you would be forced to look it up and learn something new as I did - lol! I'm glad you enjoyed the puzzle noncentz.

Sploofus Maximus, I loved the puzzle for the reasons mentioned by Noncentz. I began your puzzle with the idea about anagrams or something I have seen in a games magazine (which I thought was a "cryptid") LOL! Anyway, I really enjoyed that one (and spent a long while after the puzzle learning about the goatsucker... the only one I had never heard of). Great stuff!

Thanks violetblue! Once I learned what a cryptid was, I was surprised how much information there was on the internet about them! I HAD to put the goatsucker in because my significant other LOVES to say the word "chupacabra". That's acctually where I got the idea from - lol!

Sploofus Maximus!

Since we are on the subject of cryptids, if any one is interested, I just bought the funniest book for a friend of mine for Christmas. It's called "Me Write Book - It Bigfoot Memoir" by Graham Roumieu. It's all about life as Bigfoot from Bigfoot's perspective. It is hilarious! I don't what's funnier - the writing or the pictures to go along with it.

Sploofus Maximus--relieved to know I'm not the only one with a significant other who loves to say 'chupacabra'

That's too funny pafork! My significant other also likes to say "capybara" which is kind of similar to "chupacabra"!
