The Jersey Devil is a Cryptid said to inhabit the Pine Barrens of Southern New Jersey, United States. It is a demon born of a mortal woman named Deborah Leeds. The creature was her thirteenth child and reportedly was born a normal baby, but changed its form to become the horror you see above. On January 16 through 23, 1909, newspapers of the time published hundreds of claimed encounters with the Jersey Devil. Reports continue to pop up on occasion, even now.
