Is the Lizard Man Back?



The Lizard Man sightings first popped up in my native Pee Dee region of South Carolina around 1988 when I was 10 years old. I remember buying a “Lizard Man” t-shirt at the I-95 Speedway outside of Florence, SC and wore it almost daily with pride. Perhaps that’s when my love of all things cryptid began.

Anyway, there are new Lizard Man sightings in the Pee Dee according to WIS tv out of Columbia…

WIStv.com Columbia, SC: “Lizard Man” returns?: “Dixie Rawson of Bishopville sent WIS News 10 an e-mail about a big surprise she got at her home Thursday morning. ‘The whole front half of our van is chewed up. There are bite marks right through the front grill. Both sides of the van above the wheel wells were bitten and the metal is bent like a piece of paper.’

It reminded Dixie of the local legend of the ‘Lizard Man’ that stretches back for decades. Now some are wondering if the Lizard Man is back.”

You can read more about the Lizard Man of SC here at Wikipedia:

The Lizard Man is described as being seven feet tall, bipedal, and well built, with green scaly skin and glowing red eyes. It is said to have three toes on each foot and three fingers on each hand which end in long black claw-like nails.

Thanks to Jon for sending over!
