Geocache Description:

Congrats to Graciedi for FTF! Welcome to the Cryptid series! I decided it would be interesting to let people know about the unknown or mysterious animals of our planet.  I hope you guys will enjoy this, and I would appreciate if you sent me pictures of the landscape, (and any suspicious animals you see!) Grab some monster repellant and get out there!

This creature has been reported as looking like an abnormally large black dog, sometimes as solid as a normal looking dog, other times it is ethereal or ghost-like. Its eyes are usually bright like lights, usually round and red like glowing embers. The creature is often reported to be the size of an adult bear or a large calf. Its fur often looks slightly shaggy or messy, often it appears to shimmer or glow like parts of it are on fire. Its teeth and fangs are long as well as its claws.

In cultures that associate the afterlife with fire, graveyard hounds may have fire-based abilities and appearance. They are often assigned to guard the entrances to the world of the dead, such as graveyards and burial grounds, or undertake other duties related to the afterlife or the supernatural, such as hunting lost souls or guarding a supernatural treasure. In European legends, seeing a hellhound or hearing it howl may be either an omen of death.

Some supernatural dogs, such as the Welsh Cŵn Annwn, were actually believed to be benign. However, encountering them was still considered to be a sign of imminent death.
You are seeking a small LNL hidden head high. Keep one eye out for the cache & one eye out for the hounds!
