The Jersey Devil

Although Bigfoot is definitely the current popular cryptozoological creature in America, the notorious Jersey Devil was once far more well-known. This kangaroo-like creature was often described as a flying biped with hooves, with the head of a goat and leathery wings, horns, hooves and a forked tail which emitted a blood curdling scream. Its popularity has waned over the years as new creatures of myth have sprung from New Jersey lore, such as the gruff-voiced, guitar toting "Boss" and, of course, the elusive Snooki monster.
