Cryptozoologists investigate if mysterious or unexplained evolutionary deviations and creatures exist uncatalogued or miscalatolgued by mainstream scientists.

Many scientists question if cryptozoology is a valid field of study, given the earnest work of real zoologists in studies involving realistic biological distortions.

Nevertheless, various mysterious animal species and nearly-mythological creatures such as Bigfoot, the Jersey Devil, and the Loch Ness Monster are studied by cryptozoologists. For example, cryptozoologists investigate if the Loch Ness Monster may be a descendant of a Plesiosaur dinosaur that survived the meteor-collision induced Jurassic Era mass extinction of dinosaurs on planet Earth.

There are many evolutionary and cultural mysteries on planet Earth: for example, why is Iceland mostly green and Greenland mostly icy, given their inherited names and social symbols?

So it is prudent if offbeat academic fields such as cryptozoology bolster the psychological appeal of Hollywood (USA0 movies (and movie posters!) such as "Mystery Men" (1999), "Incident at Loch Ness" (2004) and "Body of Lies" (2008).

Are they printing movie posters on hemp/recycled paper yet?

God bless!
