My Cryptid Choice
At first I thought choosing a cryptid would be easy, but like many of the other posters, after browsing through the extensive wikipedia list, I found that it wasn't so easy. A couple people suggested that I research the Illiamna Lake Monster, which is a local myth from the area that I'm from in Alaska. This is more of a local legend and I didn't think there would be a lot of literature about it, so I decided against it. Like a couple other people, I thought that the chupacabra might be interesting to research, but I decided against that too since there are already a few other people interested in it. I have finally decided that I'm going to research merpeople. I'm choosing merpeople because sea creatures fascinate me. I think that I will be able to find quite a bit of literature about them and I'm interested in learning more of the myths/legends/stories about them.
