Jersey devil man. That's one cryptid I can say easily kept my interest up to this day. xD
I remember being really big on cryptozoology when I was younger. I used to look up stuff about the Loch Ness Monster, Mokèlé-mbèmbé, and Kasai Rex, simply hoping dinosaurs still existed, lol. Chupacabra used to give me the creeps whenever I'd look up stuff about it. Maybe it's because I would do that at night when I'm alone in my room. xD
Nowadays, this stuff is just one of those random topics I'll talk about with some close friends. Like, "hey dude, have you ever heard of el chupacabra"?
