As I prepare to once again move ABC into a new “season” (so to speak), I once again leave this space open for suggestions. What would you like to see sooner rather than later? What creatures are you dying to hear about?

LikeLiked by 2 people Glad to hear -More Australian creatures (and More Non-European creatures in general) -More well know creatures made into strange and different variations (like what you did with The Dwarf) LikeLiked by 2 people I would like to see more birds,especially colorful types. LikeLiked by 2 people I really like your website and hope that you can continue your monster list. I would like to see Wendigo, Aigamuxa/Aigamuchab, and Each Tened. Oh, and if possible, maybe Bhainsasura. Thanks and keep up the great work! LikeLiked by 2 people How about weretigers? LikeLiked by 2 people hi long-time viewer here who’s never bothered to comment i’d like to see some more bes because those are funny, maybe a couple more yokai, and definitely more lesser-known creatures from places like southeast asia, south america, the arctic circle, etc LikeLiked by 2 people Have you done anything on Lake Monsters? There seem to be quite a few, all over the world. LikeLiked by 2 people Obscure stuff! More sealife (crabs, jellyfish, moray eels, rays, fish), anything mushroom and plant-related, chameleons/lizards/frogs/toads… Catfish, electric eels, ant lions?! LikeLiked by 2 people Hi, I’m from Brazil. In my opinion, your bestiary is the best there is and I hope you continue your wonderful work. I would also like to ask you to talk more about Brazilian creatures and Japanese yokai. LikeLiked by 2 people UHHH… (racks brain) There’s Malaysia’s pisang (banana tree spirit), and Patagonia’s elengassen (the shelled creature, not the wolf-bull-thing.) LikeLiked by 2 people The more obscure, the better. LikeLiked by 2 people I know a nice handful of creatures. I love your website as it supports my creative works based on monsters, famous or local. Have you ever done the Engineer Rat (Toonage Rat)? A Tizie-Whizie from Bowness Bay, UK? Fresno Nightwalkers, Nguruvilu, Ozark Howler, Chaw-green, Coonigator, Zburator (or Zmeu),Valravn, Rubberado, Roperite, Snawfus, Enfield, and many others? I’ve got lots! I guess you COULD say I am a big fan of yours as I’m a huge enthusiast in monsters and mythologies. ^V^ LikeLiked by 2 people Hah, I’ve already done the roperite and the enfield :p LikeLike Oh. Well, I hope the others sound like good choices. I’ve been doing some researching in these critters myself, too. Snow wassets, a gumberoo, Trunko (from Margate, South Africa), werehyenas, the Wamp (Now in the public domain), and more. I’ve got a ton of them! LikeLiked by 2 people Add hara no mushi LikeLiked by 2 people What about suishu LikeLiked by 1 person I’d love to see the more well-known creatures added, but with your own personal spin like you did with the dwarf a while ago. All in all, very cool work. LikeLiked by 2 people I certainly wouldn’t mind seeing your interpretation of one of my favourite Japanese monsters, the grotesque and peculiar undead creature known as a Sagari: http://yokai.com/sagari/ LikeLiked by 2 people I love your work! I think you should make an instagram account! It would be awesome!! Check out some Indonesian ghosts/monsters/humanoid creatures.. LikeLiked by 2 people Pretty please can we see the sæneyti, urdarköttur, fjörulalli, Ladon, Nidhogg, crocotta, ichenumon/hydrus, adaro, knucker, Scylla & Charybdis, piasa, cetus, tikoloshe, nuckelavee, coquecigrue, knucker, hulpalim, jumart, gulon, tikbalang, sea hog, hodag, ahuizotl, lampalugua, tupilaq, sedja, skunk ape (if what I’ve read about it originating in Native American folklore is correct), Typhon, Echidna, leocampus/merlion, thanacth, succarath, boobrie, bunyip, umibozu, ushi-oni, Native American water panther, taniwha, nanabolele, dobhar-chu, inkanyamba, ninki nanka, gbahali, Zmey Gorynych & peluda? I’d also really like more Wednesday book reviews & other interludes (I can send you a PDF of Mythical Creatures by Linda S. Godfrey), but I understand if you don’t have energy for that. LikeLiked by 2 people Sure! And I covered urdarköttur under Skoffin, fjörulalli under Skeljaskrimsli (didn’t feel either was different enough to warrant separate entries), and “peluda” under its real name of Velue. LikeLike Can you add hara no mushi please? LikeLiked by 2 people Hi,again I also would like to see some unusual mammals from other worlds as well as birds from other worlds.THANKS! LikeLiked by 2 people Since we have Behemoth and Kuyūtha, how about Leviathan and Bahamut LikeLiked by 2 people There’s nothing interesting to say about Bahamut that I haven’t already sad under Kuyūtha 😦 LikeLike perhaps more dragons, also maybe more creatures confused with living or having been alive animals, like mokele or kongamoto LikeLiked by 2 people Already done mokele and kongamato 😀 LikeLike Er, unless you mean more like them, I’m stupid LikeLike My usuals: Jurupari/Curupira, Qallupilluk, Muzayyara, Corpo Seco, Mamu, Dheeyabery, Dhinabarrada (Idk how to spell this one), Nakki, Namorodo, Wandjina, Hydrus, Bunyip, or Aasivarluut. Any of these would be awesome LikeLiked by 2 people Another Brazilian here voting for Brazilian Folklore, as well as more stuff from Latin America, including indigenous peoples. But, really, I already love whatever you’ll bring. LikeLiked by 2 people Do more about the Philippines or Vietnam. LikeLiked by 1 person I think it would be really neat if you we’re to do some of Lovecraft’s creations from the Cthulhu mythos and such and more Russian things like the Indrik, yelbeghen, or goldhorn/zlatorog, maybe even some creatures from Central Asia too. Also, I don’t know if this would count, though, but the Bulette/land shark would be cool. Anyway, I enjoy your work and this site very much and just wanted to say thanks. LikeLiked by 2 people I’m not going to do things that are doubtlessly copyrighted ^^; LikeLike Yeah. The bulette was risky. Would it be possible if instead I suggest some death worms like the allghoi khorkhoi, shar khorkhoi, and temeenii süül? It seems that they would behave similarly to and maybe even share a niche with a bulette, plus they aren’t copyrighted. LikeLiked by 2 people True LikeLike I am quite a folklore and fantasy geek, and I would love to see something classic, but biologically and anatomically possible. I did this once with a Peryton and gave it bat-like front limbs, horizontal pupils, big ears, and a manner of taking off from the ground like a pterosaur, I’t very fun. redo some old ones, but with some new art. LikeLiked by 2 people Well how abot Colo colo from Chile that I once mentioned? LikeLiked by 1 person The Snawfus (North America), the Funeral Mountain Terrashot (Fearsome Critter), the Ningen (Japan/Antarctica) and Xalpen (South America). The last one’s interesting to me, since she acts very much like Zeus, but was presented as a villain. LikeLiked by 2 people Ugjuknarpak, more obscure animals (in myth that is) like insects, strange fishes, jellyfish and that type creatures, much more plant creatures, Berberoka and that hornbill bird from Polynesian myths/cryptids. Fewer snakes. LikeLiked by 2 people Fewer snakes? You ask the impossible LikeLike Would love to see some creatures from Central Asia, Polynesia, and more from SEA (in addition to the Ja Het monsters which I can never get enough of). It could also be fun to see some supposed alien encounters and the like mixed in. Excited to see whatever critters you dig up! LikeLiked by 2 people Oh, also! I know in general you stay away from really well trodden ground, but I would love to see you do an entry on the Golem of Prague. I am just tired of seeing that word used as like a generic term any time a fantasy setting needs a robot, and so it would be nice to see your treatment of the “real” version. 🙂 LikeLiked by 2 people Maybe some Slavic? There are some (Polewik, Gorynycz, Leszy, Bies, Licho, Południca skarbnik and many, many others. Interesting would be to read about the apocryfic creatures (like higher-leveled angels). Also almost every creature from Heroes of Might and Magic III is taken from many mitologies (mostly Grreek, but there are others) so these game and it’s sequels could be a mine of concepts for You. Very good job You do on these website. Respect! LikeLiked by 2 people Thank you! I’ve done the polevik already and I’m thinking maybe to steer away from more “human” things. As for angels… I don’t want to get in trouble 😦 LikeLike Yeah I can understand that, with angels being part of still-existing religions. And if anybody’s curious, angels in the Bible (just to start) are really weird. I still prefer them over the stereotypical halo-wearing blondie, though. LikeLiked by 1 person Ehhh… the whole “angels are weird” thing is a misconception from picking and choosing very specific and idiosyncratic bits of the Bible. LikeLike I want to hear about Korean mythological creatures LikeLiked by 1 person I want to hear about Korean mythological creatures. But you won’t find much information about them. Because Korean mythology is not well known LikeLiked by 1 person Yeah I noticed 😦 LikeLike How about some more Bes spirits, more object-based monsters, and more demons? LikeLiked by 2 people Hey, ABC. Long-time lurker here, and I’m always happy to see an update from you. Personally, I’d love to see your take on the Each Ceannan Dubh (from this story: https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.1080/0015587X.1917.9718963?journalCode=rfol20&😉 and the Safat. Hope you’re doing well, and I’ll be looking forward to see more in the future from you! LikeLiked by 2 people While I’m sure you already have quite a bit on your plate, isn’t really like to see the makalala too 🙂 LikeLiked by 2 people I just read that first depictions of Kraken looked more like a crab or whale, rather than squid (Well for the first one I kinda can see for both squid and crab swim backwards) and them after seeing these https://special-collections.wp.st-andrews.ac.uk/2019/12/16/december-16-kraken/ I’m MORE than exited to see you depiction of Kraken LikeLiked by 2 people And before some animal expert gets butthurt, sorry. I don’t know about the other Scandinavian countries but here in Finland we refer both crabs and crayfish all together as just crabs (Rapu) LikeLiked by 2 people You have close to 50 comments, dude! LikeLiked by 2 people I know right? LikeLike Maybe nogitsune and or kitsune? I’d love to see your take on those LikeLiked by 2 people Some Appalachian ghost stories? LikeLiked by 2 people Could you please show us the lechuza or owl-witch known in mexico and texas? That one might be interesting. LikeLiked by 1 person Mongolian death worm, please. LikeLiked by 1 person Can we have an Obscure Modern Monsters post about the Hotheaded Naked Ice Borer prank? LikeLiked by 1 person I’d love to see the Umi-Bozu and/or the Tenome, if you wanna do so. LikeLiked by 1 person Can we expect something next month? LikeLiked by 1 person I really hope so…. I’m trying to build up a bit of a backlog because I’ve got a lot to worry about right now 😦 LikeLike Maybe have more guest artists to pick up the slack? LikeLiked by 1 person Nobody’s going to do any more guest art, I guarantee you that 😦 LikeLike Create a secondary channel/tab for fan art of monsters from popular medium. LikeLiked by 1 person Now there’s an idea… LikeLiked by 1 person Indonesian Pocong please!!! LikeLiked by 1 person I love your work so much! I also love to draw creatures from lore. I’m a bit out of date with your work but you may enjoy the flying rays from the US. They’re so weird and fun. LikeLiked by 1 person I would like to see your version of the wendigo or more yokai like the tengu or other humanoid creatures LikeLiked by 1 person I would like to see small mini-series, each with a few major creatures from one of the less known mythologies. If you ask, anyone is able to list some well known greek (Centaurs, Satyrs, Cyclops etc) or norse (Trolls, Giants, Dwarves etc) mythical creatures, but what about less known mythologies like yoruba, maori, turkish, arabian, philippine, inuit, inca, basque, zulu, etruscan, hawaiian etc?
