Anybody else fascinated by the concept of cryptids? I love reading about stuff like the mothman or chupacabra.

What's your favorite?

My favourites would have to be monsters that dwell in the water, such as the Loch Ness Monster or the Krakken. The deep ocean is so mysterious that it feels like there's always a possibility such strange creatures actually exist. ;D

OK I looked up the description of that creature.

He/she/it is called by several vernacular names. The names are Hellbender, snot otter, mud cat, devil dog, Alleghany Alligator, and so forth. It is a large salamander that can grow to two and a half feet long. The one in the picture may be a young one.

Those are strange looking aquatic creatures, part of God's will I presume.

billy rubin

cryptobranchus alligheniensis

yes. but salamanders and newts and efts and such are generally delicate things, often beautifully colored and patterned.

the hellbenders are gian t things that look more like a huge slimy booger than anything else. theyre in my local watershed. captina creek



used to be poisoned by runoff from the coal mines, but has recovered mostly. the hellbenders are not common, but thats where they live, and if you want to look you will find them

Salamanders are said to be invulnerable to fire, what's a bit of pollution?
