Title

What is Cryptozoology and Why It Matters

Description

Cryptozoology is the study of animals unrecognized to exist by science but might actually exist, such as Bigfoot or the Loch Ness Monster. While not inherently a scientific field, cryptozoology can be of benefit to modern day zoology. Unfortunately the field is often mocked due to the unusual nature of the creatures that are investigated. Colin Schneider, one of the youngest cryptozoologists in the world, will make a case for the legitimacy and significance of the field through his five years of experience and studies. Skeptics and enthusiasts are all welcome.
