Washington, June 18 (ANI): Bigfoot expert Billy Willard says he is on the verge of discovering the most fabled of cryptozoic beasts.
Most of the snake species captured at the Serra do Mendanha had terrestrial habits (84%, n = 21), followed by those having semi-arboreal habits (44%, n = 10), arboreal habits (40%, n = 10), and semi-aquatic habits (12%, n = 3), whereas cryptozoic, aquatic and fossorial species were rare (8 %, n = 2) (Table 1).
This cryptozoic characteristic allows them to install and proliferate abundantly [80].
