Cryptids are monsters... except that cryptids could actually exist! When talking about Bigfoot or the Loch Ness Monster you're talking about something that could live right on this Earth right now! On Cryptid Wiki, we document all of the possible information you can get about cryptids and determine if they're real or not.

The Oldeani Monster is a supposedly lost species of chameleon found in Tanzania.

On February 25, 1962, Peter Scott and John and Jane Hunter saw a large chameleon in the Ngorongoro Conversation Area near Oldeani Peak, Tazania. They captured it, and Scott took it back to England, where it lived for a full 18 months. Its remains were preserved a short time, with Scott taking them to several herpetology experts who were unable to determine the animal's identity. The remains of the chameleon were unfortunately lost at some point afterwards.
