Can you identify this mystery fish found on an old postcard?

I know, I know. The above photo is still a mystery, but how about some easier questions?

What’s your Cryptozoology IQ? Okay, a couple questions are about aliens, but, overall, this is a good quick automated quiz to see how you rate.

Take the short quiz on the FunTrivia.com site here.

How did you do? (BTW, I will delete your comment if you give away any answers. That is just no fun for anyone else coming after you.)

I got a perfect 10 out of 10, but then, if I didn’t, I figure I won’t deserve to be your tour guide on your journey into the cryptozoological world here at Cryptomundo. LOL.

Meanwhile, this one is still a mystery:

Loren Coleman About Loren Coleman
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.

    10 out of ten, the simplest for me being the cryptozoology and the ufology ones.

  2. God of Wine responds:

    You scored: 6 / 10
    I guess that isn’t so bad 🙂

  3. Squatch hunter responds:

    I got a nine out of ten and I am damn proud of myself 🙂

  4. Angel responds:

    I got 5 out of 10 but I’m only 14 and I’ve only started looking into cryptozoology…dude this stuff is kewl…. ^_^ *stares at her score and starts studying* I will pass the test next time….I will pass the test next time….I will pass the test next time….I will pass the test next time….

  5. Irish227 responds:

    Something tells me the “mystery fish” is a hideously overgrown Sturgeon. They keep growing until they die, so if that was, say, 145 years old, it might be that big. Look it up.

  6. ovocato responds:

    10 out of 10

    i need a life

  7. Chernobyl responds:

    9/10, last one threw me off since my expertise is in monsters, not aliens.

    As for the fish, it looks like a gigantor hybrid between a minnow and a lungfish. I have no idea how that popped into my head.

  8. AlienBigCats responds:

    I got 9/10. Number 7 was really unfair. UFOs/Aliens aren’t cryptozoological.
