Regarding Lizard Man Captured on Camera Phone!

The tale of the Bishopville Lizard Man has had its ups and downs over the years, ranging between credible eyewitness accounts to silly news reports.

The photo included in the recent ABC news article is one such low point, as it appears to be some sort of costume or miniature model rather than a real creature.


The accompanying video is more ambiguous since it’s difficult to make out anything more than a shadowy figure, but when taking into consideration the short length of the clip and the “right place at the right time” circumstance, I have my doubts as to its credibility.


For the complete history of the Bishopville Lizard Man case, refer to my book “Lizard Man: The True Story of the Bishopville Monster” published by Anomalist Books.
