Monsters Of America!

By now, we’ve all heard of Bigfoot — also known as Sasquatch — the hairy, humanoid bipedal creature that’s said to wander the forests of the Pacific Northwest and numerous other states of America.

And depending in your interest in local legends and cryptozoology (the study of hidden animals), you may have heard of some of the other mythical creatures that are occasionally said to haunt certain regions of the country, like the carnivorous Jersey Devil that lives in New Jersey’s Pine Barrens, or the chupacabra, a beast that’s mentioned in the lore of the Southwest.

But have you ever heard of the Pukwudgie, a “small bipedal humanoid” that comes from Native American folklore and can reportedly transform into a walking porcupine, or the car-mauling Lizard Man of Scape Ore Swamp in South Carolina amongst others?

This map shows where these creatures and more can most commonly be found (or not found as the case may be)!
