A homeowner in Florida reported that a 'baby dinosaur' ran across her lawn in the middle of the night. Cristina Ryan said her security camera captured the black and white footage of a creature on two legs running past her home in Palm Coast. While trying to come up with an explanation for what the strange animal may be, she joked that she can only see it as a prehistoric creature. She noted that the way the animal was 'walking' on its hind legs makes it look just like a velociraptor.
The woman explained, 'Any animal we can come up with that would be 'walking' at 3:40 in the morning, wouldn't walk this way. Maybe I've watched 'Jurassic Park' too any times, but I see a raptor or other small dinosaur!' She added: 'Some say a large bird, but that makes no sense - since whatever it is appears to have front legs. So not sure? Lol. I'm sticking with raptor myself.' After the footage was shared on Facebook, social media users came up with their own theories for what the strange creature could be. One stated: 'It's a fox with its tail sticking up and back'. Another wrote: 'Someone has turned loose an exotic lizard or an iguana is visiting from the keys.' Florida residents point out that many of the large birds that are found in the state may look and sound like prehistoric beasts.
One commented: 'Those big birds sure do sound like velociraptors. I live in a reserve area and have cranes, herons, egrets, etc. in my backyard all the time.'
Others say that it's not actually a large bird, but is rather a wild turkey running by. One person pointed out: 'Tons where I live and I swear they could be a mini brontosaurus when I see them.'
