Cryptids Decrypted is back with a brand new episode, and we’re talking about the legend of the Loveland Frogman. Unfamiliar? It might be because this myth has a very focused region of Loveland Ohio, or the fact that sightings have been few and far between. Originally spotted back in 1955, first encounters with this bipedal, human-sized frog only started after the release of a famous film. Got any guesses?
That’s right, The Creature from the Black Lagoon released in 1954, just one year before the first sighting of the Frogman. Described as about the same size as a human, but walking on two legs, the Frogman really just looks like a giant frog. There are some particularly weird aspects of these sightings, such as potential magic wand use, and confusion for giant iguanas, but I don’t want to spoil all that here.
No, for the full story on the Loveland Frogman, check out our latest episode of Cryptids Decrypted. It’s my favorite podcast, because – well – it’s got me in it. Give it a listen, and let us know if you like it!
