Kryptophobia (or more fully kryptozoophobia) is an irrational fear of cryptids. Cryptids are elusive creatures where people have allegedly seen but not recognized by mainstream zoology. So some people believe such creatures, while some don't. People who believe cryptids would claim that such creatures are scary and can kill. So this phobia is tended for people who believe them, while many sufferers claimed to have see alleged creatures.
Sufferers of kryptophobia would stay indoors, especially away from forests. If a sufferers sees a cryptid that look like may run and attack them, he/she would panic, flee while taking cover, and breathe fast.
