Did you know that Russia has it's own Nessi (Neski) which lives in Lake Chaney and eats people?:
And many many of their own Bigfoot and Yeti?:
Or that they captured a living missing link named Zana who lived in captivity and then bred with humans to produce children?
Here is her entry from Squatchopedia. Oh yeah, it also turns out there's a Squatchopedia!
I found some of this preliminary stuff while doing reading for my Slavic folklore show, but just learned about Zana today.
