We just got a tip from reader "Tippy Tipperson" pointing us in the direction of Elizabeth Brady's excellent post over at PawNation.
Brady uses cryptids like Nessie and the yeti as a launching pad to discuss other animals that were considered mythical monsters at one point in time. The list with accompanying photos is only five strong right now, and I hope she continues to add to it, but it's a fun, educational read.
Sadly, the post doesn't allow for embedding here and I don't want to tick off copyright gods, but go check it out nonetheless. And thanks for the tip, Tippy - if that is your real name, which I have absolutely no doubts about.
