Bigfoot? Nessie? Chupacabras? The Almas? Yeti? Champ? Old Shuck?

Who do you concider the most plausible?

My vote is for Black Shuck having seen him a number of times with Nessie my aquatic friend is a close second.

Cheers,

Depends what you would accept as being the cryptid. There are various descriptions of all the beasts you mention, with varying powers sometimes associated with them. Old Shuck is perhaps the clearest example of that. Would you accept proof of a pack of large, black, and scary dogs as proof of Old Shuck or does it need to be a one-eyed harbinger of death?

But staying in the spirit of the OP I would answer this way: In the commonly accepted form of all those listed, none of them are plausible at all. Still, I have fun with these at times, particularly the horror-cryptids like Old/Black Shuck.

Well, in that case, it's definitely plausible.


Cheers, too

None. A cryptic of any large size would need a breeding population large enough to sustain an ongoing population. Not discovering many live or dead examples of the creature makes the concept implausible.

Years ago I knew a zoo keeper who had an interest in crypto zoology. Being an educated man with a practical knowledge of a wide variety of animals gave him a very grounded perspective. He said that the bulk of what is described is hype, but he also kept an open mind to the possibility that myths may be built on some shred of truth. He had a theory about Nessie, Champ and other water cryptids. He suggested that there may be some large flat worm type creatures. Eye witnesses being notoriously unreliable and stories being larger than life, a big flat worm could look like something much more than it is. Being boneless, remains would not last long which would plausibly explain a lack of any recovered body.

It struck me as a good theory. As good as any and more likely than a modern, living dinosaur.

I think a water cryptic of some sort is the most plausible because of the vastness of the world's waters. A big mollusk or worm would fit the sea serpent bill, so there's my vote.
