Cryptid: In cryptozoology and sometimes in cryptobotany, a cryptid (from the Greek "κρύπτω" (krypto) meaning "hide") is a creature or plant whose existence has been suggested but is unrecognized by scientific consensus and often regarded as highly unlikely.[1] Famous examples include the Yeti in the Himalayas and the Loch Ness Monster in Scotland - Taken from the Wiki Page on Cryptids

'Cryptid' has also been applied by cryptozoologists to animals whose existence is accepted by the scientific community, but which are considered of interest to cryptozoology, such as the coelacanth, once believed to be extinct, and the okapi, at one time thought to be entirely fictitious



Lets Try to name all the Cryptids in Arizona?


I'll go first and of course Steal the Best or most popular by far from it's Father of Discovery (Mitchel Waite); 

The Mogollon Monster:

The Mogollon Monster (play /mʌɡɨˈjn/ or /mɡəˈjn/)[1] is a legendary creature that has been discussed in accounts from central and eastern Arizona along the Mogollon Rim. It is most often described as a Bigfoot or ape-like creature, but descriptions vary. No hard evidence has been found, and the existence of such a creature is doubted by biologists.

The Chupacabra: Also called El Chupacabras, now known as a Blue Dog in this country.

El Chupacabras : The Chupacabra or Chupacabras (Spanish pronunciation: [tʃupaˈkaβɾa], from chupar "to suck" and cabra "goat", literally "goat sucker") is a legendary cryptid rumored to inhabit parts of theAmericas. It is associated more recently with sightings of an allegedly unknown animal in Puerto Rico, where these sightings were first reported, Mexico, and the United States, especially in the latter's Latin American communities.[1] The name comes from the animal's reported habit of attacking and drinking the blood of livestock, especially goats. Taken from the Wiki Page on The Chupacabra

Hehe, I just stole two~~~~Can't make it that easy for us Cryptozoologists!  Who can name some? Who's in?

And this;
 
The Examiner2012-04-02: Well not considered a Cryptid, the Gila trout has almost become just that in recent years. One of only two true "Salmonid" species native to the State of Arizona and the South West, (The other being the Apache Trout). The Gila has been considered an "Endangered Species" since 1967*, due to over fishing and the introduction of non-native species. However, in 2006 it was determined the Gila trout had recovered enough to be reclassified as a "threatened" species, rather than an "endangered" one*. When the Gila trout was re-designated as "Threatened," it was thought that anglers in Arizona would have an opportunity... more »

That's for sure!  :)

Mitch's new Cryptid would qualify too, 


That's what gave me the idea for the question!


The Skisamine

“It was like a scene from a horror movie. Something just hit our tent. Was it a pine cone or something else?” Jay Walters stated. “We could hear footsteps on the other side of the canvas. It seemed to be trying to locate us inside our tent with slow raspy breathing. However, it was being very careful not to touch the tent.”



Jay is an older gentleman who approached me with this report. He had been camping in the Mt Graham area in Arizona. His family was taking some time off from the hustle and bustle of city life for the more serene woods of the Mount Graham area. They were staying at the Hospital Flats Campground just south of Safford, Arizona on 27 April, 2012.



They had spent the day hiking and lounging around the camp without event, but they became aware of noises in the bushes as evening began to fall. It sounded like something moving through the brush with occasional twigs breaking. Jays first impression was it was a skunk or raccoon maybe a bear waiting for a chance to raid the camp for any scraps of food. Therefore, the family took the appropriate precautions of storing their food and garbage outside of camp at the end of a rope from a tall tree limb well out of reach of any scavenger

Click below for the rest of the article, it's quite good~~as usual.

the Chupacagra, Skin Fin, Skisamine, jaguar, jagarundi, Yo-Yo, Mothman, and others I can't remember.  There is one I am researching, and I heard about it from the people on the
Res.  I don't have a name, but it is about 3 feet tall, biped, looks like a mini mummy without the rags, it east bones from grave yards and roadkill.  And the stangest thing is you can not see it directl.  You can only see it out of the corner of your eye.

That sounds like a cool one, I have heard of something similar, but I can't place it at the moment.  Kind of like Shadow people you can only see them out of the corner of your eye?  Very Cool!

The ones that  you can only see out of the corner of your eye--That is usually a bad omen according to the Navajos.  It's like the TV show "Dead Like Me".  They are the creatures that come to feast on the lost souls unless the reapers can get there first and send the souls to heaven.
