Does This Video Prove Mythical Lizard Man Is Real?
After two, new reported sightings of Lizard Man in South Carolina, fascination is growing over whether the mythical swamp creature actually exists.
A woman told ABC News 4 that she swears she spotted Lizard Man over the weekend outside a church in Bishopville, South Carolina, and snapped a picture with her phone as proof.
"My hand to God, I am not making this up," she said. "So excited!"
The woman told the station she saw the creature dashing through a tree line located about one mile from Scape Ore Swamp.
In the video, a dark creature with a tail is walking along. The man became spooked when it turned toward him.
"Though my wife believes me that it's real, she said she would be embarrassed that everyone would think I was a loon so I kept it a secret,” said the man.
"When it noticed me, I high-tailed it out,” he said.
The question of Lizard Man’s authenticity has swirled for nearly 30 years.
Most sightings have been reported from the swamp. There have even been million-dollar rewards offered for anyone who can catch Lizard Man alive.
The myth of Lizard Man was born in 1988 when a 17-year-old man named Christopher Davis said a seven-foot beast charged at him and jumped on his car roof while he changed a tire. He escaped, but scratch marks remained on his roof.
Since then, people have been searching for clues as to whether the creature actually exists.
