Hello, everybody! Quick message before the blog post, I’m very sorry for not posting these past couple weeks, I have had a bit of trouble finding the time and trying to come up with an interesting topic seeing as I don’t wish to mainly write about cryptid’s people know about. Well, now onto the discussion.
