Grease the cage hinges and wipe down your goggles, it’s time once again for the greatest freak show on the earth as we launch the 2021 Miss Cryptid Contest! Kicking off this year’s Miss Cryptid Contest is a panoply of profligates starting with the Imbunche, Pixiu, and Tokoloshe. It’s an international smorgasbord with contestants from Chile, China, and South Africa. Learn about the witchcraft dealings of the warlocks who make Imbunche. Know where to place your statues for good fortune with the Pixiu. And hear how to avoid nighttime attacks of the Tokoloshe.
