National Geographic Discovering the former Ghost Demon Cryptid

The Cryptozoology sees itself as a field of zoology that tracks and investigates hidden animals before they are discovered. Founded around the year 1950 by the zoologist and journalist Bernard Heuvelmans, Cryptozoologists have made several successes. Here is the list of the most recently discovered cryptids according to German Cryptid Wiki

Most Recently Discovered Demons/Dragons[]

The dragon is a legendary creature, typically with serpentine or reptilian traits, that features in the myths of many


Demon or Dragonoid Cryptids

cultures. A dragon is a mythological representation of a reptile. In antiquity, dragons were mostly envisaged as serpents, but since the Middle Ages, it has become common to depict them with legs, resembling a lizard. Dragons are usually shown in modern times with a body like a huge lizard, or a snake with two pairs of lizard-type legs, and able to emit fire from their mouths. The European dragon has bat-like wings growing from its back. A dragon-like creature with wings but only a single pair of legs is known as a wyvern. The demon in art appears in a large number of shapes, but it usually falls somewhere between a large, monstrous bird and a wholly anthropomorphized being, often with a red face or an unusually large or long nose. Early depictions of demon show them as kite-like beings who can take a human-like form, often retaining avian wings, head or beak. The demon's long nose seems to have been conceived in the 14th century, likely as a humanization of the original bird's bill.
