The Legend Behind This Mythical Creature In Missouri Will Leave You Puzzled

Let’s talk about state legends today, Missouri! We’ve all heard the legend of Bigfoot; some of us may even swear to having seen him during our travels across the state. But, more popular than Bigfoot, at least in Missouri, is Momo. The Missouri Monster — first spotted more than four decades ago — has since become a legend. Do you know the story of Momo, and, perhaps more importantly, do you believe the creature in Missouri really exists?
