“The discovery that Homo floresiensis survived until so very recently, in geological terms, makes it more likely that stories of other mythical, human-like creatures such as Yetis are founded on grains of truth….Now, cryptozoology, the study of such fabulous creatures, can come in from the cold.” ~ Henry Gee, editor, “Flores, God and Cryptozoology” Nature (October 27, 2004).
Could it be?
Will the truth be told about what the Sasquatch was looking for when it crossed the road?
Will the next decade be the one where “cryptos” ~ a word meaning “cryptozoologists,” and used and/or coined by folks such as DWA, Ole Bub, and perhaps even first here, way back in March 2006, by draconica ~ come into their own?
What are your cryptid, cryptozoology and cryptozoologist predictions for the 2010s?
One thing I think I see on the horizon: “Cryptos” will be the new “in” word for the next decade, just as “cryptid” was for the last decade.
