Cryptozoology: The Science of MythCryptozoology is the search for animals that are rumored to exist, but for which conclusive proof is missing. This includes the search for living examples of animals that are known to have existed at one time, but are widely considered to be extinct today.
Dr. Bernard Heuvelmans who is considered the father of cryptozoology defines the word cryptozoology as:"... I began to use more and more often the term 'cryptozoology' to define my research. I had derived it from the Greek roots kruptos, meaning 'hidden', zôon, 'animal', and logos,'discourse': in short, 'the science of hidden animals'".

On the internet there are many websites about cryptozoology. So here are some I like.
