Did resident Cristina Ryan capture a video of a baby dinosaur on her home security camera in Florida? She believes so.
“Any animal we can come up with that would be ‘walking’ at 3:40 in the morning, wouldn’t walk this way,” Ryan told FOX 35. “Maybe I’ve watched Jurassic Park too many times, but I see a raptor or other small dinosaur!”
“Some say a large bird,” she continued, “but that makes no sense since whatever it is appears to have front legs.”
Most commenters weren’t as easily convinced as Ryan, though, offering suggestions from a Komodo Dragon to dogs or cats to aliens.
One of the most logical and confident responses argued that the creature is “a dog wearing a harness dragging a leash.”
“You can see all four legs and the harness and leash dragging behind it,” they wrote.
Baby Dinosaur in Florida
Assuming this is a baby dinosaur in Florida, what are the implications of such a sighting?
Elon Musk’s partner, Max Hodak, recently suggested that he could build genetically-modified dinosaurs. This likely hasn’t happened yet, though, and the chances of a baby dinosaur escaping in Florida are slim-to-none.
But what if this is a previously-thought-to-be-extinct dinosaur, though? The Loch Ness Monster is commonly compared to the plesiosaur, and they’ve been extinct for years.
Lochs, lakes, and oceans aren’t the only places that there have been sightings of animals believed the be extinct. Pterodactyls and Pterosaurs have been spotted in recent years. It isn’t completely out of the question that “dinosaurs” continue to exist today. After all, animals like crocodiles and sharks have been around for hundreds of millions of years.
Generally, these pre-historic theories are quickly thrown out due to the extinction of the species. If this video could confirm a baby dinosaur in Florida, it would open a world of possibilities to help explain some of Cryptozoology‘s biggest mysteries.
But it is more than likely that Ryan has indeed just been watching too many Jurassic Park films.
