This project explores the idea of cryptozoology, pseudoscience and subculture that aims to prove the existence of entities from the folklore record, such as Bigfoot, the chupacabra, or Mokele-mbembe. Many people throughout the world are constantly searching for evidence that these monsters are real. These monsters start as stories or tales and then grow into a conspiracy.
