Cryptozoology (from Greek kryptos, “hidden” + zoology; literally, “study of hidden animals”) is the search for and study of animals whose existence has not been proven. The animals cryptozoologists study are often referred to as cryptids, a term coined by John Wall in 1983. This includes looking for living examples of animals that are considered extinct, such as dinosaurs; animals whose existence lacks physical evidence but which appear in myths, legends, or are reported, such as Bigfoot and Loch Ness.
