Crypto Culture

Do you believe in supernatural creatures?  I don't - not one bit.  I'd love to, but I just can't.  I need evidence for everything.  I'm partial to bigfoot if I were to believe though.

Why is this 'crypto' ?  Crypto is what keeps my password safe from the admins here.

Cryptozoology - the pseudoscience that searches for mythical creatures.  Another area within this that fascinates me is the theories on the origin of the bloop.

As long as it doesn't get too bullsh**ty I'm ok with it.  The Bloop, the Wow Signal all of it is fine.

Do you know about the Coelacanth ?  Thought to be extinct until 1938.  When they caught one !

This is a fantasy thread - it's allowed to get weird, I think.

I actually just learned about that at the Vancouver Aquarium this week.  That's really interesting.  It's especially interesting that they live in two isolated ocean pockets. 

Have you ever read up on the Cuvier's Beaked Whale?  That's a really interesting dolphin (though not crypto).

Never heard about it.  Sounds similar to the other fish, but I didn't find a similar account of how they found live ones.

They are still finding new species.  I met a guy once who went on a bug hunt with his prof in Cambodia and he found a new kind of bug.  Some people...
