A woman in Florida believes that her home security system captured footage of a baby dinosaur dashing through her yard. According to a local media report, the strange scene unfolded outside the residence of Cristina Ryan in the city of Palm Coast. Early one morning last week, she says, her security picked up the presence of something in her yard and began filming. The oddity in question, as seen in the video above, appears to be some kind of creature running past her house.
Ryan expressed bewilderment over what the animal in the video could have been, indicating that "any animal we can come up with that would be 'walking' at 3:40 in the morning, wouldn't walk this way." Left with no solution to the mystery, the baffled homeowner mused that "maybe I've watched Jurassic Park too many times, but I see a raptor or other small dinosaur!" Ryan claims that her assessment has been echoed by several of her friends who have seen the video.
Some have argued that the creature could be a bird, but Ryan dismissed that explanation because "whatever it is appears to have front legs." As such, she declared "I'm sticking with raptor" as the identity of the oddity. Meanwhile, viewers online have offered a variety of possibilities for what the mystery creature could have been, including a dog with a reflective collar or perhaps a Komodo dragon.
