If you're a fan of cryptids, then you know that West Virginia is a hotbed
If you're a fan of cryptids, then you know that West Virginia is a hotbed of activity. From the Mothman to the brakesucker (not really exists), there's no shortage of strange creatures said to roam the mountains and valleys of the Mountain State. In this blog post, we'll take a look at five of the most popular cryptids in West Virginia.
This creature is probably the most well-known cryptid in West Virginia. The Mothman is said to be a winged creature with glowing red eyes. It's been sighted numerous times in the town of Point Pleasant, and it even has its own museum dedicated to it (they have some f the best Mothman plushies I ever seen).
The Ogua is a cryptid said to live in the Greenbrier River. It's described as being a reptilian creature with spikes down its back. It's been seen by many people over the years, and there have even been some sightings of it outside of West Virginia.
The alligator turtle is the most similar known animal to the Ogua, but it's not an exact match.
The Sheepsquatch is a cryptid that's said to resemble a cross between a sheep and an ape. It's been sighted in various parts of West Virginia, and it's even been caught on camera a few times.
There's no known animal that resembles the Sheepsquatch, so it's truly a mystery.
He never found it, but he enjoyed the hunt. The Sheepsquatch myth was an obsession for a cryptid hunter named Calvin van Lowe who devoted his life to hunting down this creature that many people claim they've seen in their travels through southern Appalachia's Mountains
A storyteller talks at length about what happened when you encounter this monsters-how did they come into being? And why do we want them so badly anyway?)
Have you heard the story of Grafton's monster? A large, humanoid bipedal creature with no visible head and covered in slick white seal-like skin. The identity or location of its head is unclear though if it actually doesn't have one close to its chest like most people think; some say that this strange beast might be nine feet tall (3 meters) making it taller than many predators on land.
Deep in the hills of Braxton County, West Virginia lies a small town with a big secret. The town is known as Flatwoods, and it's home to the Flatwoods Monster. This cryptid is said to be a large, humanoid creature with a glowing red face. It's been seen by many people over the years, and it even has its own monument dedicated to it.
The owl face might be connected to aliens or other worlds.
These are just a few of the many cryptids that are said to roam the state of West Virginia. So, if you're ever in the area, keep your eyes peeled and your camera ready. You never know what you might see.

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.
This company is exactly what I needed in my life!! I have been obsessed with cryptids for as long as I can remember but I’ve never owned a cryptid plushie.. until this company!! 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!
