 The Loveland Frogman 
    Possibly the Cincinnati area’s most famous cryptid, the Loveland Frogman is thought to be a four-foot-tall humanoid frog or toad that prowls around Loveland, Ohio on its hind legs. The first alleged sighting happened in 1955. Then, in 1972, a Loveland Police officer reported seeing something that matched the Frogman’s description, according to legend. But in 2016, after sightings were reported on several Cincinnati TV stations, a second officer called one of the stations with an updated report of the 1972 sighting. Apparently, he had shot a creature two weeks after the 1972 sighting. The creature? A large iguana with a missing tail. Regardless of the Frogman's authenticity, Cincinnati residents are mostly happy to have their very own cryptid (who could totally take Mothman in a one-on-one match).
