Cryptids Island

Meet Nessie, your new bestie.

Before I get on with this new “Know Your Cryptids” post, the PHB has big news to share about Cryptids Island…

Cryptids Island will open on Monday, December 20!

(with membership)

So, yay for those members out there, and for the rest of us – there’s no news yet on when Cryptids Island will be available to the public for free, but we’ll have the latest scoop about it here, so stay tuned. And now let’s welcome Nessie:

Know Your Cryptids: Loch Ness Monster

Nessie: Real, or all wet?

Cryptids Island is coming very soon to Poptropica! Before you take on some of the world’s most fearsome mythical monsters, we’d like to tell you a little bit about the legends.

Tales of the Loch Ness Monster go back centuries. Affectionately known as “Nessie,” she is said to live in the deep waters of Loch Ness, a lake in the Scottish Highlands. By most accounts, Nessie is a massive, long-necked creature that can travel on land as well as in the water.

The best-known picture of Nessie, shown above, was taken in 1934 by a surgeon named Dr. Wilson. Years later, another man claimed to have helped fake the photo, but it was impossible to know whether he was telling the truth, or simply seeking fame for himself.

Theories abound as to what Nessie could be. Some say that eyewitness accounts are honest misidentifications of everyday animals and objects. Others say she could be a leftover relic of the dinosaur age, specifically a plesiosaur. Still others think that there might once have been a Loch Ness Monster, but that it has died. And, of course, the possibility remains that Nessie is nothing but a hoax.

What do you think — do you believe in the Loch Ness Monster?

Captain Crawfish sounds a little nerdy there, don’t you think? Maybe we should eat his brains…


Anyway, there’s also a new PCB poll asking, “Do you believe in the Loch Ness Monster?” At the time of this writing, 55% said yes, 22% said no, and 22% are undecided. (Where’s the other 1%? o.O) HAS CAPTAIN CRAWFISH TAKEN YOUR BRAINS? :O
