Recent reports out of Florida indicate that a woman has caught footage of a strange creature running through her backyard in the middle of the night.
The night vision camera capturing the animal reportedly only lasted a few moments, and the video is so blurry the footage is inconclusive. Inconclusiveness withstanding, the internet has blown up with all manner of rampant speculation as to what the animal may have been.
The woman’s theory? She has stated that her video camera had caught footage of a baby dinosaur. Cue the Jurassic Park theme music and let the jokes begin!
The footage, captured by Cristina Ryan, is in back and white and only a few seconds in length. With that being said, it is easy to understand how the video can leave plenty of room for an individual’s imagination to be able to run wild.
In several frames of the video and yet unidentified creature is seen running through the spotlighted backyard. It appears that the creature is running upright, on its back legs. Anyone who has seen the Jurassic Park movies will recognize the scurry of a velociraptor.
Even though the true identity of the creature is still unknown, the odds that it was a dinosaur are pretty much zero. Regardless, the Florida woman who caught the creature on video is still convinced that it was a tiny dinosaur that she filmed scurrying across her yard in the early hours of the morning.
Viewers of the video have offered all sorts of possible explanations. Some stated the footage showed a large lizard. Others seem to feel it was a dog. However, the homeowner is not buying into any of these possibilities:
“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 many times, but I see a raptor or other small dinosaur.”
