Miss Cryptid 2020 Week 2

The carnage continues with 3 new loathsome ladies in week 2 of the 2020 Miss Cryptid Contest! In the second week of this year's Miss Cryptid competition, Melon Heads, the Con Rit, and Black Annis battle for savage supremacy. Who will move on to the finals? Will it be Leicestershire's horrid hag? Vietnam's atrocious arthropod? Or the misshapen monstrosities of the U.S. Melon Heads? Listen to this cavalcade of folklore, urban legend, and cryptozoology then cast your vote on the Blurry Photos Home page. The winner of week 1 is also announced! Special thanks to Amberrose Hammond for speaking about Melon Heads. Special thanks to Grant Howitt for reading accounts of Black Annis. Links to their works are below.
