List of cryptids
The following is a list of cryptids, animals and plants studied under the field of cryptozoology, a pseudoscience. Their presumptive existence has often been derived from anecdotal or other evidence considered insufficient by mainstream science.

The status of cryptids on this list falls into six categories:

Unconfirmed – cryptids whose existence is alleged but not demonstrated.
Disputed – cryptids that have a body of evidence against their existence.
Proposed [animal name] – cryptids with an alternative explanation accepted by the general scientific community.
Extinct – animals that are generally believed to be extinct, but which cryptozoologists believe may have an extant relict population.
Confirmed [animal name or cause] – animals once classified as cryptids but whose existence has now been confirmed.
Hoax – cryptids once thought to be real but later conclusively proven to be hoaxes.
