This is my first year participating in the A to Z Challenge. The list of participants can be found here. Thanks to Arlee Bird and the co-hosts for hosting this awesome challenge. Check out the site here.
I’m also participating in a mini-hop that got started on theme reveal day when a few of us realized we had similar themes. It’s called Supernatural A to Z. Click below to check out the list of participants. 🙂
The Jersey Devil is the creature of the day. The lore behind this one is that it resides in the Pine Barrens of Southern New Jersey. It’s often described as a creature with bat-like wings, horns, and small arms with clawed hands, and have hooves. It has been referenced in shows like The X-files, and MonsterQuest on the History channel.

I’ve heard the term “jersey devil” but never really had any idea what it was or what it looked like. Now I know and I kinda wish I didn’t. lol
I totally agree. I had the stories but never thought about what they would actually look like.
They went a really different route with it in that X-Files episode.
I never saw the episode but given the fact it was X-files it wouldn’t surprise me that they went a different route with it.
That’s one ugly beastie!

Yes, it is. I wouldn’t want to meet one.
i think all creatures are cute… well even this one, my first thought was the x-files episode.

Thanks for stopping by. It’s been fun. I’m glad I decided to participate.
I’ve heard of the Jersey Devil, but until now had no idea what it was. He’s not very nice to look at is he? 🙂

No, he’s not. I wouldn’t want to cross him.
I find this one of the most amusing cryptozoological creatures I have ever heard about. Very accurate for Jersey 😀 I have a friend who lives there who never heard about it, so I introduced her to the story. 🙂
