Cryptozoology facts for kids
Cryptozoology is the study of animals that people think might exist, but for which it cannot be completely proved. It also is the study of animals many scientists think are extinct, but which are still sometimes reported. Those who study or search for such animals are called cryptozoologists, while the unproven creatures are called by some as cryptids, a term first used by John Wall in 1983.
