About the Site
This website has been made to keep record of all confirmed cryptids, sorting them into categories based on physical appearance, traits and biological similarites.
Deity, Non-Conventional and Other Dimensional
Deity type cryptids are cryptids with power and abilities akin to the descriptions of gods or deities. They are the most dangerous type of cryptid and should be avoided at all costs. If you come into contact with a Deity type cryptid, you can only hope they see fit to spare you.
Non-Conventional type cryptids are cryptids that don't fit the descriptions of the more biological type cryptids and are complete outliers in Cryptozoology. Often made up of sentient objects, items or places.
Other Dimensional type cryptids are cryptids that originate from another dimension. Often coming from realities parallel from our own that have bled into ours or inhabiting exclusively the other dimension but luring their prey into theirs.
