Cryptids
are mainly plants, animals, and other eukaryotes not recognized by the scientific community or thought to be extinct. Though, some, cryptozoologist theorize they may still be alive today. Cryptids are creatures whose existence is based on alleged sightings and recordings with varying degrees of supporting evidence. Some of these alleged creatures have origins spanning to that of antiquity, with their presence believed to have been recorded in myth and legend, while others are thought to have taken new evolutionary paths and evolved from previously existing lifeforms into new variations.

Cryptozoology is the study of cryptids, or translated from it's Latin and Greek roots, the study of secret or hidden animals. Cryptozoology is an attempt to analyze creatures of contemporary sightings in a scientific fashion. Cryptozoologists are scientists that study the nature of cryptids and cryptozoology. Cryptozoology is not recognized as a branch of science by mainstream scientists, often resulting in the instances of self-declared cryptozoologists jumping to conclusions, the misconduct of the scientific theory and process, and overall lack of professionalism. Please, If you plan on editing or creating pages on this Wikia, make sure you are properly informed on the subject you are writing about.

Just as cryptozoology, a branch of zoology, is the study of animals whose existence has not been proven, cryptobotany, a branch of botany, is the study of plants whose existence is also not recognized by the scientific community.
