To celebrate the end of Cryptid Summer, we held a quick contest to see which of you could create the best fake monster picture. After all, cryptid hunting is about awesome fakery as often as it is about finding a genuinely new species. All your entries were awesome (here you can see round one and round two of the entries). After much debate, and several impassioned emails from people who wanted us to vote one way or the other, we have declared David Sears the hands-down winner, with this cute/scary photoshopperie of his dog Peeka. Is it a bat-dog? A chupacabra? We're not sure, but we do know that it flies on leather wings in the night, and that's good enough for us.
