Welcome to Cryptidophilia!

My name is Jessie and I’m a lifelong fan of mysterious creatures and the unexplained! Growing up, I was always fascinated by stories of Bigfoot, the Loch Ness Monster, and all the other legendary beasts that were said to lurk in the shadows. And, as I got older, my interest in cryptozoology only grew stronger!

I’ve spent countless hours reading, watching documentaries, and scouring the internet for any information I could find on these elusive creatures. But, it wasn’t until I had my very own encounter with a mysterious creature that my passion truly ignited!

My Own Encounter

My very first sighting of a mysterious creature happened when I was camping in the woods with some friends. We were sitting around the campfire late at night, swapping stories and enjoying the eerie atmosphere, when suddenly we heard a loud rustling in the bushes nearby. At first, we thought it was just a deer, but then we saw eyes glowing in the dark. They were unlike anything myself or my friends had ever seen before – big, round, and seemingly intelligent.

We froze, unsure of what to do next. Then, just as quickly as they appeared, the eyes vanished, leaving us all in stunned silence. We initially brushed the encounter off but afterward heard stories about others who had seen a mysterious creature that looked like an enormous wolf in the forest as well, one that they couldn’t explain either!

That experience left a lasting impression on me. I knew that I wanted to spend my life studying and learning more about these mysterious creatures and sharing what I learned with others. And so Cryptidophilia was born!

Why Cryptidophilia?

I’ve written a complete article explaining why I chose the name Cryptidophila and I hope that it resonates with you as well!
