Introduction to Monstrology
Monstrology (or De Monstris in Latin) is the study of creatures unknown to zoology or botany which include dragons, mermaids, unicorns, and many more which are considered legendary creatures. There are many branches in this study which includes: Cryptozoology (the study of "Hidden Animals" such as the Loch Ness Monster and Sasquatch), Magizoology (the study of magical creatures such as dragons, gnomes, and unicorns), UFOlogy (study of UFOes and aliens), Demonlogy (the study of Hell and demons), Angelology (study of Heaven and angels), and more. Within each branch, there are sub-branches (in Magizoology, there are people who mainly study dragons and people who study goblins). In this blog, I'll be skipping around these branches to give information on different and unusual species that are part of this field of study.
