"I think their predominant color was a greyish-green, though they had white bellies. They were mostly shiny and slippery, but the ridges of their backs were scaly. Their forms vaguely suggested the anthropoid, while their heads were the heads of fish, with prodigious bulging eyes that never closed. At the sides of their necks were palpitating gills, and their long paws were webbed. They hopped irregularly, sometimes on two legs and sometimes on four. I was somehow glad that they had no more than four limbs. Their croaking, baying voices, clearly used for articulate speech, held all the dark shades of expression which their staring faces lacked ... They were the blasphemous fish-frogs of the nameless design - living and horrible." --H. P. Lovecraft, "The Shadow Over Innsmouth"

Cryptozoology is literally the study of “hidden animals.” It is derived from the Greek κρυπτός, or kryptos, meaning ”hidden” + zoology. This Department is dedicated to the search for animals whose existence has not been proven, and the living examples of animals that are considered extinct. Given that you've completed all your assignments, there is a lovely Department T-shirt awaiting you on the other side of this lecture. multiple colors and styles - order a size up if you are in doubt.
