Monsters in America: Cryptozoic Creatures Around The U.S.


Hog Island Press, a t-shirt manufacturer has created a map compiled of cryptozoic creatures from the contiguous United States.  If you’re an X-Files fan, you’re familiar with the main creatures such as Bigfoot, Chupacabra and the Jersey Devil.  But, did you know there are 29 other cryptozoic creatures throughout the U.S.?  It’s amazing to think these creatures have existed for at least hundreds of years here in America and yet few of us are aware of them.

Loren Coleman, who is a cryptozoologist and author on the topic, states:

The cryptid-filled, cartographically accurate Monsters in America: A Cryptozoological Map of the United States should be on the walls of every museum, library, and researcher’s office interested in the science of as-yet-to-be-discovered animals. Hog Island Press has produced an informative, affordable, high quality collectible, which also serves as an educational tool useful for your next road trip, a future research trek, or everyday bibliographic study. There is not a fake on the map. I love the heavy paper stock. Discover and obtain yours today!
