Illinois Cryptids

Hello everyone! I've been researching into more obscure cryptids recently, and was wondering if anyone here can offer some cryptids that come from my birth and local state of Illinois.

So far I've found two monsters described in a similar fashion, yet nothing really else. The first was the Enfield Monster which was described particularly as having three legs. The other was called the Murphysboro Mud Monster, which was basically described as an albino sasquatch. To make matters more confusing, the Enfield was also described as similar to the Flatwoods monster, and the Murphysboro Mud Monster was also described similar to the Goatman!!!! ๐Ÿ˜•

So it's not really clear what in the hell is going on in Illinois with these two monsters, yet I was wondering if there were any more obscure monsters witnessed thriving in Illinois. Please share any info you can (preferably with sources).
