In 1735, deep in the pine forests of New Jersey, Mrs. Leeds gave birth to her thirteenth child. As the legend goes, mere moments after being born the cursed child underwent a dreadful transformation, growing horns and wings, before unleashing it's fury on everyone in the room. After it's victims were sufficiently maimed, the abominable creature launched itself up and out the chimney, disappearing into the woods, where some say it remains to this day.
The Jersey Devil is one the most well known and well documented cryptids in all of the cryptid kingdom, and today, we tell it's story!
