One subject in the vast study of Cryptozoology is the thought of living dinosaurs (or dinosaur-like creatures). Living dinosaurs would be dinosaurs that have survived the supposed extinction of the species eons ago. While the thought of dinosaurs like the ones we all know of to be surviving to this day is difficult to imagine, there are many different kinds that have been spotted by witnesses. Many people around the world claim to see surviving dinosaurs, be it as sea monsters in the form of plesiosaurs or a megaraptor like the Burrunjor of Australia. 

One of the most famous living dinosaurs is the Mokèlé-mbèmbé of Africa. This creature is thought to be a sauropod, a long necked dinosaur like a brontosaurus. Sightings of this massive creature have been reported for more than 200 years and more than 30 documented expeditions to try and find it have taken place. The Mokèlé-mbèmbé is reported to be extremely dangerous despite the fact that it is a herbivore; it is often said that it kills hippos that wander into its territory.

Other notable living dinosaurs include:

  • Loch Ness Monster
  • Nguma-monene 
  • Arica Monster 
  • Mbielu-Mbielu-Mbielu 
  • Partridge Creek Beast

What Is A Cryptid? The Gizmodo Guide To Undocumented And Unusual Beasts.   

Scotland has the Loch Ness Monster, Australia the Bunyip and America its Jersey Devil. All over the world you hear tales of mythical beasts, animals and monsters that might just exist, even if they’re not scientifically recognised. From lake monsters to living dinosaurs to creatures straight out of myth — we’re talking about cryptids.

What counts as a cryptid?

Full Article


Name: Lilith

Alternate Names: Lilithu, Sinlord of Lust (In Mythika only)

Mythology: Jewish Mythology

Size: Medium, she’s like the perfect woman

Environment: Realm of Lust, a small island in the great abyssal seas.

In Mythika: Lilith is the Sinlord of Lust, the Lady of Temptation and the seducer of worlds. Few things male or female can withstand her beauty and lips. While she is vile and corrupted in her own way, she appears to be the least evil of the Sinlords and of demons in general, always speaking in gentle ways and only getting angry if someone breaks out of her charm, which happens rarely and mostly by other powerful Sinlords or Demon Lords. She kinda hates Narcissus as he loves himself more than he loves her. In Mythika Lilith helps the heroes at some points in the story, only to turn on them in later parts and revealing her true plot, that to become the ultimate Sinlord of all after the others perish. In battle she seduces heroes and puts them against each other, she summons succubi, lilim, satyr’s, gancanagh and other such lustful creatures into battle to help her and her sword causes serious damage to the heart. Killing her means you gain the Symbol of Lust, a pink amulet which makes the wearer very charming for enemies, and random enemies you face may attack other enemies instead of the heroes, it also makes the wearer of the Symbol the least likely target in the group, giving this symbol to a weaker spellcaster is a smart thing.

If u ever wonder what an ENTP would be like as a teacher, my old history teacher once told me he had to talk to me about something and I thought I was in trouble but he just asked me if I was into cryptids and started telling me about skunkape

Omfg my english teacher last year was probably an ENTP and i really hated him because he was a bit of an ass but like, i didn’t mind his class cuz we never had any homework. He’d go off on a 45 minute tangent completely unrelated to the class material, and we didn’t have time for anything else.

I remember we were doing a unit on the Great Gatsby and we got to chapter 7 (i think?) and he really got caught up on the idea of dropping a water balloon of tomato soup to simulate blood? And like, he talked about it for a good 15 minutes i’m p sure he thought he was hilarious.

he’s also the only teacher the library has to monitor his books for because he never asks for them back. I had 5 different books in my locker from the beginning of the year and i think i gave them back on the last day lol

i’m just going to make this prediction now

before the end of this year (2016) we will have indisputable, quantifiable, scientific proof of either sentient extraterrestrial life, the afterlife, a well-known cryptid, or the supernatural/paranormal in general

this year is already weird as fuck okay it’s clearly the universe preparing us for a gigantic storm of what the everloving fuck in the future

if i were a cryptid id be the strange little goblin that shows up in your kitchen between the hours of 12-4 am and takes a single bite out of everything in your fridge then leaves
