4 - Sasquatch

This simian-like cryptid hails from American folklore, specifically the Pacific Northwest where the bipedal hairy ape man has been spotted since 1840, when a Protestant missionary first recorded tales of the 10 foot tall monster from Native Americans who lived near present-day Spokane Washington. The natives told stories of these beasts which looked like ancient man who were giant in size and were known for stealing salmon from fishermen's nets, especially near peaks of nearby mountains. Some say these stories are myths fabricated from large grizzly bears, while others insist these creatures are left over prehistoric man, some call this theory of a creature the missing link. Many researchers now claim that Bigfoot is based on Gigantopithecus jahy-gan-toh-pi-thee-kuh s, -pith-i-kuh s, ji, a giant ape-like creature with humanoid traits, several over-sized fossils found in the area seem to back up that something certainly once lived in these woods which wasn't human, yet was very close to our species. But could these non-human primates still exist in our modern world?

3 - The Jersey Devil

The legend goes, that in 1736, a woman in New Jersey named Mother Leeds gave birth to a 13th child, but this baby was born a hideous monster, with a forked tail, huge bat wings, hooves and goats head. The beast killed the midwife and flew out the chimney and since then, has been seen lurking in the New Jersey woods ever since. Joseph Bonaparte, Napoleon's older brother reported to have witnessed the creature around 1820. During the 1840s a series of bizarre attacks on livestock had locals screaming in fear from this cryptid creature. Rewards have been offered, newspaper articles have been published with eyewitness reports and later black and white photographs. During one week in 1909, hundreds of reports flooded into print of encounters with the creature. Pine Barrens seems to be the most common place people still occasionally see the alleged beast. In 2015 a video of The Jersey Devil found its way to the interweb which has left many monster hunter's gathering their gear and racing out in search of this cryptid which may exist.

2 - Mothman

This cryptid creature has been told around campfires in West Virginia, especially Point Pleasant since the 1960s. The first reported sighting came from grave diggers who claimed the giant humanoid winged insect creature came flying out of a cemetery late one night. All kinds of eyewitness reports have found their way into print, including the dramatic chasing of a couple in their car down a road in Point Pleasant. The glowing red eyes and black bird-like fur are always mentioned in the stories first. The collapse of the town?s silver bridge in 1967 was believed to have been prophesized by this creature as several photos and accounts paint the hybrid humanoid monster as flying around the bridge more than once right before it crashed downward, which has also yet to be thoroughly explained. In 1966 through 1967 more than 67 reports including 100 eyewitness accounts of this cryptid found their way into record books. And this monster of doom foresight has been linked to other worldwide disasters such as 911, Chernobyl, the Swine Flu Outbreak in Mexico, and the Fukushima disaster.

1 - The Loch Ness Monster

Nessie is a lake monster which has made its home in the lake known as Loch Ness in the Scottish Highlands since the early 1930s. Eyewitness accounts, photographs and sonar readings have made this legend into reality for at least one Scottish township. This serpent-like water monster is believed to be very large, reptilian, with a long neck and one or more humps which sometimes protrude from the water. There have been sightings, audio and video recordings, all kinds of images, documentaries, satellite mappings, and recorded interviews with people who say they have witnessed the water beast first hand. Many believe this creature is real and theorise that the giant underwater serpent is a left over plesiosaur (plee-see-uh-soar), long thought to have gone extinct, other possibilities include, giant seals, or a large invertebrate such as the bristleworm. But there is still no conclusive evidence on either side of the argument.
