  • Cristina Ryan said the footage from her security camera revealed a strange creature
  • She said he seemed to walk on his hind legs like a prehistoric lizard
  • Facebook users suggest it could be a fox, wild turkey, crane, or a domestic dog
  • Others joke that the creature looks like a bird of prey or the mythical chupacabra

A Florida homeowner sparked a debate on social media after suggesting 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 rushing past her Palm Coast home.

While trying to find an explanation for what the strange animal might be, Ryan joked that she can only see it as a prehistoric creature. She noted that the way the animal “walked” on its hind legs, it looks just like a velociraptor.

“Any animal we can think of that would ‘walk’ at 3:40 am in the morning wouldn’t walk like that, ” Ryan said. FOX 35 News“Maybe I’ve seen Jurassic Park too many times, but I see a bird of prey or some other little dinosaur!”

She added: ‘Some say a big bird, but that makes no sense – since whatever it is seems to have front legs. So not sure? LOL. I stay with the bird of prey myself. ‘

After the images were shared on Facebook, social media users came up with their own theories of what the strange creature could be.

One said, “It’s a fox with its tail up and back.” Another wrote: “Someone has released an exotic lizard or an iguana is coming to visit with the keys.”

Florida residents point out that many of the large birds found in the state can look and sound like prehistoric beasts.

One of them said, ‘Those big birds sure do sound like velociraptors. I live on a reserve and have cranes, herons, egrets, etc. in my backyard all the time. ‘

One wrote, “It’s seriously JUST a dog and what looks like his harness / leash dragging behind him.”

Some even playfully suggest the animal is a chupacabra – a legendary vampire-like creature with roots in South America that sucks up the blood of livestock and looks a bit like a hairless dog or coyote.

There are also a few commentators who argue that Ryan may not be wrong and that the animal is, in fact, a baby velociraptor or other prehistoric creature roaming a Florida backyard.

“Definitely a dinosaur,” a Facebook user wrote below the video. ‘After all, 2020 continued into 2021 …. So anything is possible.’
