A Myth with Aliens

This week I'm offering up "what if?" questions to help jump start your next novel. At least, that's my story and I'm sticking to it.

I hold certain beliefs that many people find to be a bit "out there". (I write speculative fiction. "Out there" beliefs can help in constructing interesting stories.) But one thing I do not believe in are cryptozoology creatures.

Nope. Don't exist. Most have been proven to be hoaxes. (I'm sure I can find other links, but I'm not going to spend much more time on this.)

But, imagine seeing such a strange creature. Something you've never seen before. It doesn't fit into any category of creature that you've heard of. Although, perhaps it seems like a mythological creature or something that you heard a snippet about on some random show.

What if you encountered this alien creature (as in an alien being observing Earth), and because it was so foreign, you assumed you saw a Bigfoot, Loch Ness Monster, etc...?

If I encountered this alien creature...
That's a tough question. I don't believe cryptozoology creatures exist either. But I'm inclined to believe aliens do. They have to, right? To think we're alone in the universe is absurd. So I'm not sure if I'd jump straight to BIGFOOT EXISTS over an actual alien being.

But what if it looked just like Bigfoot?
