On a drizzly February afternoon in the Pacific Northwest a local news crew stepped into a small patch of woods to film a story on truffle hunting. It wasn’t long before they realized they were not alone.

People often ask what is the difference between such creatures and those referenced in cryptozoology. For me; the term ‘cryptid’ is used to describe creatures which could well exist on a zoological level but which have not been discovered; or are sighting in places where they do not originate. The term also covers reports of animals thought extinct but which are allegedly still sighted. At times ‘zooforms’ may well veer into cryptozoological circles but for me ‘zooforms’ are manifestations which have no evidence to support them whatsoever in a zoological sense.
