Famous Mythical Creatures Of Every US State (Illustrated)

Welcome to the American bestiary catalog! A catalog full of animals, birds, and other interesting natural (or sometimes imaginary) phenomena. 

According to this 12th century author, the purpose of bestiary is "to improve the minds of ordinary people, in such a way that the soul will at least perceive physically things which it has difficulty grasping mentally: that what they have difficulty comprehending with their ears, they will perceive with their eyes."

Thanks to CashNetUSA, for assembling all the greatest mythical creatures within the US, and illustrating them so wonderfully! 

If you're living in the US, share what mythical creature your state is famous for!

What People Think And Wonder About Your State, According to Google

Google Autocomplete tool, that offers to autocomplete your questions with the most popular options, is probably the best way to do polls. A company named Mental Floss decided to take another look at what people were scratching their heads over, regarding each state. They wanted to find out what is the first thing that comes to mind when people are thinking about each state and what is it that they wonder about. They did it by letting Google autocomplete two simple questions: 

a. Why is [state] so...

b. What does [state] 

To stay on topic, they disregarded questions that referred to the state's sports team instead of the state itself (except for Alabama, because apparently that's all they search for).
