While doing research for my new book 'Shadows of Myth and Legend' I came across a word I was unfamiliar with and thought I would share.
Cryptid (from the greek "κρύπτω" meaning "hide") is a term which is used in cryptozoology to refer to a creature whose existence has been suggested but lacks scientific support. Such entities include Bigfoot, Yeti, and the Loch Ness Monster.
