The Cryptid Zoo: Honey Island Swamp Monster

This creature, looking something like a cross between Bigfoot and a kangaroo, is reported from Honey Island Swamp, just outside the city of New Orleans in the state of Louisiana. It leaves three-toed footprints and might be related to North America's bizarre giant monkey or skunk-ape lore.
