Introducing North Carolina's Cryptids - An Overview
Have you heard about the Cape Fear River Mermaids, The Beast of Bladenboro, Siren of the French Broad and the Moon-Eyed people? These enigmatic creatures have all been reported in North Carolina and referred to as Cryptids. A cryptid is an animal that has been claimed to exist but there is no scientific evidence for its existence. Normie, also known as The Peach Singer of Cumberland County, falls into this category as well. In this article we will explore these mysterious cryptids and attempt to answer what they are and where they come from. So let’s dive right in and discover North Carolina’s most enigmaic creatures!
Exploring the Mysterious Cape Fear River Mermaids
Adventurers and curious creators have been enamoured with the mystery of the Cape Fear River Mermaids for centuries. These aquatic creatures have mesmerised songs, stories, and tales of sailors who have gone in search of these elusive sea-women that haunt the North Carolina coastlines. It is said they can be sighted with gills and scales, singing intertwining tunes in harmony on a moonlit night. Many explorers continue to look for this legendary mermaid - you could be next to see if this enchanting creature really exists!
Investigating the Elusive Beast of Bladenboro
If you’re a cryptid enthusiast, one creature that you’re sure to have heard of is the Beast of Bladenboro. This elusive creature was said to have terrorized the small town in North Carolina during 1954, leaving behind paw prints and other horrifying evidence of its presence. Although sightings of this unknown creature stopped over 60 years ago, many cryptozoologists remain interested in investigating what truths lie beneath the enigma. Do an enigmatic species still exist, or are they nothing but mere urban legends? It’s up to us to take to task the investigations necessary to explore their secrets and discover their true nature!
Uncovering the Alluring Siren of the French Broad
Exploring the forgotten tales of the Siren of the French Broad is a tantalizing adventure. This fabled cryptid reportedly haunts the depths of Western North Carolina, materializing from time to time to mesmerize onlookers with her enchanting beauty. Yet despite her captivating allure, little else is known about this mysterious beast. Is she an elusive mermaid, or something altogether different? To uncover her secrets, brave adventurers must be prepared to search for legend and lore perhaps even within themselves. From dynamic swamplands to tentative riverside meetings, could there really be something lurking in the waters of Western North Carolina? Join us as we dive deep into unraveling the longstanding mysteries of this beguiling siren!
Discovering The Eerie Normie
Exploring and uncovering mysteries is highly thrilling and Normie is certainly no exception! This obscure creature has been described as essentially an albino Bigfoot, covered in long white fur, with piercing red eyes and extraordinarily tall horns protruding from its head. Reports of sightings had reached the Appalachian Mountains in western North Carolina as early as the 1800s, so researchers were eager to find out more about it. After extensive research and interviews with local townsfolk about this mysterious North Carolina cryptid, it was determined that Normie had not been seen in over a hundred years. Though many are still on the hunt for this mysterious forest apparition, the mystery of Normie remains unsolved, yet another enigma of North Carolina's untamable wilderness.
Searching for The Inscrutable Moon-Eyed People
Join us on an enigmatic journey as we embark on a search for the mysterious Moon-Eyed people. These inscrutable denizens of North Carolina's untouched wilds have been shrouded in mystery since colonial times, as sightings of their large, pale eyes shine in the light of the full moon. Little is known about these elusive creatures and so we take to the woods and comb through each field and crevice, hoping that our endeavors will bring us closer to unraveling this timeless enigma. With any luck, parsing these age-old rumors will provide answers about where they live, how they conduct themselves, or even if they exist at all!

I'm not normally much of a Bigfoot fan (I'm more of a Mothman and Fresno Nightcrawlers girl) but the cute design of this one absolutely stole my heart! The big eyes are too adorable, it's just the right size and shape for cuddling, and the fur is soft without shedding or matting like some other long furs do. I'll definitely be back for more plushies from this shop!
We are OBSESSED with our plushie. The only problem is now we need MORE. Super soft, excellent handmade quality. These “haunted pants” are the perfect adorably creepy addition to any collection. We can’t wait to get our hands on more! So glad to have found these!
I love my Mothman plushy! He’s so cute and fuzzy. The wings are the best part, so soft! The only problem is keeping them away from my pups! (And the catastrophic bad omen of having him nearby) 🤣
This Fresno Nightcrawler Stuffed Cryptid is the perfect companion for camping trips. It is cozy, charming, and adventurous. It looks like it belongs in the woods and blends in with nature. I took a photo of it on a tree and it looked amazing. It is a great gift for anyone who loves camping and cryptids. I adore it and recommend it.

I now have this beyond adorable Yeti plush and I love him!!! He sits on my stand with some of my other weird and wonderful items and I can’t get over how cute he is! I cannot wait to get more!!!
I always loved cryptids growing up seeing YouTube videos and tv shows talking about them always fascinated me and then years later I stubbled to this site from Instagram and fell further in love with the merch! The plushies really have me in a chokehold I currently own the Fresno nightcrawler and plan on buying them all! Even plan on buy them as presents for family members! So damn adorable!
Love how furry and fluffy the stuffed cryptids are.
these are so well made, you can feel the quality as soon as you open the package. the eyes are beaded on very securely and despite how fluffy they look, they still have minimal shedding which is super convenient. obviously adorable, but also extremely worth the price. don’t hesitate to buy!
