In response to Matt Bille's comment that the blue tiger is known only from a single eyewitness report (Harry Caldwell), this is not true. In his book Blue Tiger (1925), he notes that he had two entirely separate sightings of blue tigers, blue fur was also found by himself and his son along paths used by this creature (I'd love to know if any samples were collected and, if so, where they are today), and in both my own soon-to-be-published book Cats of Magic, Mythology, and Mystery (CFZ Press: Bideford, 2012) and also on my ShukerNature blog, I give details of a separate sighting of a blue tiger, this time in the Korean peninsula, not in China. So Loren is absolutely justified in including the blue tiger in his Top 50 list of cryptids (excellent reading, btw). Here is the link to my blue tiger article containing the Korean blue tiger report.

The Hodag is a creature created in lumbermen's tall tales; it is not a cryptid.

Have you ever investigated the Hodag of Northern Wisconsin?

This list is definitely most interesting. I like how a lot of the lesser known cryptids are put before other more famous ones.

It is alphabetical, so it is hard to put a "b"-cryptid before the "a"-cryptids. :-)

"Mngwa are mystery cats described as being as large as donkeys, with marks like a tabby and living in Africa" - possibly wild King Cheetah?

Very thorough list! I would have liked to have seen the aquatic cryptids of Lake Illiamna in Alaska on this list!

Re: "Are these the top 50 in terms of likelihood of confirmation?" This was answered in the previous day's two lists: Loren Coleman’s Top Cryptids This top 50 is done in alphabetical order, on purpose, to get away from any weighed importance. It is an annotated list. The other previous two "top" lists (in one posting) are related to the notion of "best bets" and "most popular."

It's interesting you mentioned the little wild men Rillo777. I live on Vancouver Island and I think it was a year or two ago a friend of mine had mentioned someone she had met that had noticed her outside light had been triggered by someone to who she thought was a visitor. She went to the door to look through the window to her surprise there was a short (3.5 to 4') creature at the bottom of the step looking up at her. Supposedly it had a wild hair look and had strong beady looking eyes. She told my friend it was like the thing was mentally wanting her to come outside. My understanding is native woman and children have more sightings of these creatures. Maybe the story of the seven dwarfs isn't just a childrens story. It freaked her out so much that she refuses to leave her house at dark as she is in a rural area with lots of trees. Vancouver island is full of mines, caves and trees to hide. This place is a hot spot of strange and mysterious happenings including Ufo's. Believe it or not.
