Honey Island Swamp Monster
Region of origin: Honey Island Swamp, Louisiana, United States
An ape-like hominid sighted in the swamps of eastern Louisiana, descriptions mention reptilian or amphibious features as well as mammalian, including footprints supposedly belonging to the creatures showing webbed feet. Lore around the creature’s origins explain this combination as their being the result of circus chimpanzees escaping into the swamps after a trainwreck and mating with indigenous crocodiles.
