So uh, one early morning b/t 5-7am, the sun was just starting to warm the dew on the grass, it was a like a bright misty morning when everything had a golden tint, I was walking to catch an early bus and saw standing in someone’s front yard in Roxbury- the biggest wild turkey(SO I THOUGHT) that I had ever seen in my life. I’m 5’3”- this turkey was bigger and taller than me. Like what I imagine to be moose sized(or rly a life size of that animated rooster guy). I was honestly afraid to walk past it, it jst stared. I really thought for a minute “is this someone’s freaky pet?? is this what people are doing now???” for YEARS i thought it was jst a big wild turkey until this year I started looking into it after a friend tried sending me pics of what she thought I saw so I was like “o no it was bigger lemme look it up” and essentially led me to the cryptid part of the internet bc no such bird I described exists in the studied world. What the heck did I see???? I kept walking and went on with my day but like- EXCUSE ME??????????? any answers are welcome. It had a big bird face with a buncha blue and red bumpy details, covered in mostly dark brown/many shades of brown feathers.
What's on your mind?
I dont like how some cryptids are assumed to be man eaters by there aperence i think only a few have been seen to actualy eat a person
Why are the Hopkinsville goblins referred to as "Kelly Green Men" when they're albino?

Hey everyone, I'm Michael and I'm the creator of MetaZoo: Cryptid Nation. The game is your standard monster/magic TCG/CCG but the main focus is USA based cryptids. Everything from the big ones like Bigfoot and Mothman all the way to your humble jackalope.
Here's the spiel of the game's backstory:
**Magic is real... real magic is everywhere!**
I would say welcome to the world of MetaZoo, but MetaZoo *is* our world! Magic was hidden away behind a Great Veil put in place by mysterious characters over 1000 years ago. This is why magic and the work of miracles disappeared from our collective folklores and became the subject of myths and legends.
However... the Great Veil has now fallen under even more mysterious circumstances...and now the Beasties, Spells, and Artifacts that exist in our world but were once hidden are now yours to control!
- MetaZoo™** is a Collectible Card Game with groundbreaking mechanics that break the 4th Wall. Choose where you play wisely, because your surroundings dictate how powerful your cards are! Cast Water Spells when it's raining to increase their effectiveness and partner Dark Beasties during nighttime to augment their power. It's not enough to build a powerful deck anymore, you might choose your Arena!
- Cryptid Zoo©** is our first set, and it's just the beginning. It takes place in the USA and focuses primarily on Cryptids and powerful artifacts of Americana. Partner with Bigfoot and Mothman and take a trek on U.S. Route 66 to fight against Indrid Cold and his diabolical entourage!
Like it says above, the really cool and unique mechanic of the game is that your surroundings actually impact the game! The game has over 200+ cards in it... We've done some serious playtesting in our inner circles, but we are now opening it up to the community at large to participate. You can sign up for updates regarding the playtesting here: http://www.metazoogames.com
If you sign up now then you'll be notified when the playtesting opens and since we only want a certain number of people playtesting so it's kind of first come first serve. The playtesting will be done digitally because of the whole global shutdown, but we are confident that playtesters will still be creative about pointing out flaws, coming up with strategis, etc...
The Kickstarter campaign tentatively launches on July 15th, and if funding is successful then all playtesters will receive a free sealed booster box of the first edition of the CCG around the expected delivery date in December 2020. Let me know if you guys have any questions or if you just want to talk more about the game!

If Time Machine has been discovered at some point in the future it's likely that the existence or operations of said machine might intentionally or unintentionally caused anomalies across timelines. The anomalies take form of some sort of time portals that lead to certain period of era allowing any moving creature to enter or exit them. The existence of this anomaly if it's real could explain the sightings of cryptids that resembled or said to be surviving members of supposedly extinct species such as Black Demon (Megalodon), Mapinguari (Ground Sloth), Mokele Mbembe (Sauropod), Gevaudan Beast (Mesonychid/Bear Dog), etch. The misplaced prehistoric beasts could return to their original eras or die in the eras they've been misplaced to in undiscovered locations if the portals they used disappeared which also could explain why certain cryptids disappeared long after their latest sightings instead of reproducing or increasing in number. (Btw yeah i came up with this theory after watching Primeval)
Why does this page say, "While there's more evidence to suggest Nessie is real than there is to suggest it is false"? I laughed so hard while I was reading this. The only evidence of Nessie are videos and photos (all of which are either doubtful, barely resemble a plesiosaur, or proven fabricated), or eyewitness reports, nearly all of which are contradictory, especially the early ones, and have absolutely zero evidence to back them up.
I'm not trying to mindlessly spread hate, I just want this wiki to take a more factual and scientific approach to things. Can the Loch Ness Monster exist? Yes. Can an undiscovered sub-species of humans that are eleven feet tall and weigh 2,000 pounds live underground in Antartica, undetected by humans for all of existence? Yes. Understand this faulty logic?
I hope people will actually try to understand my reasoning and opinion, instead of getting triggered that I have a different belief than theirs.
I haven't heard from him for almost a year, does anyone know of his whereabout, if he's alright?
What are the strangest, believable ocean creature stories out there? Either local seaside town legends or sailor's stories? Both ones that have been explained and ones that are still a mystery?
What do people think about adding an RSS feed somewhere (I don't know where) on the Wiki? It would let people keep up with the latest cryptozoology news and blog posts by cryptozoologists. Here's an example:
An interesting test I want to see opinions on. You can list in any order you want, no need to list the most or least famous first. Just list the number of Cryptids how you like. This should be interesting...
I've read a lot about encounters with Cryptids which frequently end up with some violence and/or hostility between those who see them and the cryptids in question. If not that, it's generally the one who saw them and/or the cryptid running for the hills.
Granted, I'm not expecting a meeting between human and cryptid to end up like How To Train Your Dragon or Rescuers Down Under from what I'm about to ask, but I'm curious if there's any reported encounters with cryptids that haven't ended with either party running off immediately or hostility from one/both sides, with the encounter instead been more out of curiosity or even what could be described as friendliness?
What it happen Cryptids (Animals) evolve in the 100 years from now in the Future.
