Great article on cryptids. Mostly, though, I enjoyed the very serious discussion in the comments thread. Ah, science! Speculation! Wait...um, oh right. And I finally have a link to Loren Coleman's cryptid blog, which is pretty cool.

On an only slightly related note, I'm considering designing a set of four elongated coins featuring the cryptids of the Pacific Northwest: sasquatch, the tree octopus, the thunderbird and Ogopogo. You know, when I have money again. :-)
