Are cryptids real?

Are cryptids real or are they just a story written by someone with a good imagination?
What are cryptids? My teacher talked about them today in class but I didn't understand her very well. Can you explain to me if they're real?

This is precisely the question cryptozoologists attempt to answer by setting out to verify rumors or legends of strange beasts or creatures.

Some cryptids that were eventually proved real include the platypus, the pongo (gorilla), the okapi (a giraffe/zebra type animal), and the coelacanth (a prehistoric fish thought long extinct).

We all know that since the world is huge and we haven't even started to explore the deep sea, more creatures will be discovered in the future.
