ok i found this, but i'm not sure how accurate it is:


Cryptozoology (from Greek κρυπτός, kryptos, "hidden" + zoology; literally, "study of hidden animals") refers to the search for animals which are considered to be legendary or otherwise nonexistent by mainstream biology. This includes looking for living examples of animals that are considered extinct, such as dinosaurs; animals whose existence lacks physical support but which appear in myths, legends, or are reported, such as Bigfoot and Chupacabra;[1] and wild animals dramatically outside of their normal geographic ranges, such as phantom cats or "ABCs" (an initialism commonly used by cryptozoologists that stands for Alien Big Cats).

Those involved in cryptozoological study are known as cryptozoologists. The animals they study are often referred to as cryptids, a term coined by John Wall in 1983.[2]

Cryptozoology is not a recognized branch of the science of zoology. Its status as a science has been questioned[3] since it relies heavily upon anecdotal evidence, stories and alleged sightings,[4] and has been referred to as a pseudoscience.[5]

here's the web addy: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cryptozoology

It is, as you found Crystalkitten. Basicly its the study of undescovered animals, as well as the stuffy of potentially real creatures of myth as well. Werewolves would fall into this category, as would other shapeshifters or changelings, as well as the study of lockness monster and such. Anyways Yes its exactly as you found Crystalkitten.

If you ever watched the TV show Sanctuary on Syfy channel, basically what they do is cryptozoology but (only its a Fantasy TV show) but they go around catching and protecting what they call Abnormals. Which is Bigfoot, super sized spiders, and basicly any creature that we would not think to exist.

Even Dragons would fall under category of cryptozoology.

Anyways Enjoy and ask away with questions.
