Local "Monster Myths"...

I am looking for more information about local "monster myths." When I say Local I really am refering to US... While worldwide if facinating, I don't have the moola to travel around the world. But I would like to do some research and whatnot on "monsters" I can travel to try to find.

I know there is Mothman, Bigfoot & the Jersey Devil (which I would be happy to get info on as well) but what else is there? Are there myths local to you that are worth looking in to??

  • I my gosh.....you need to look up one famous in SC.......The Lizard Man. It is crazy! It was around when I was in elementary school and then "he" resurfaced within the past two years over this crazy story about how a car was mauled........google it.......I think it originated in Beaufort, South Carolina.

  • The one I'm most familiar with is the Jersey Devil. Though I'm not an expert by any stretch of the imagination, it's something I've read a bit about. (Being from the Pine Barrens in NJ)

  • SC seems to have several. I just read about some in a book called "Lost Lands, Forgotten Realms : Sunken Continents, Vanished Cities, and the Kingdoms That History Misplaced" (it was talking about their underground realms). The author, Bob Curran, writes about folklore & is great to read, but he isn't an American so the books are really global & only touch on American subjects. Check out this website with many articles on cryptozoology http://cryptozoology.suite101.com/articles.cfm
