3 Yeti

My personal favourite monster. He is just frightening. To go out in the snow and finding this beast standing tall in front of you. I'm sorry, I don't want to be the meal of the Yeti. - Daviddv0601

4 The Kraken

I wouldn't want to be eaten by a giant octopus, thank you very much. - Daviddv0601

Release the kraken! I always wanted to do that

Actually the myth called the Karaken was actually before a Giant squid which is REAL but it’s not called the kraken the first discovery the people obviously did not know what it was called but now we figure it was a giant squid. Do you people pay attention?

5 Chupacabra

I don't know about you but I wouldn't want to find this thing in my area. - Daviddv0601
