Ok so I witnessed some thing first hand while driving at night. I saw somthing in the road standing on two very thin leg it had thick arms and upper body with a short flat head. It was walking it a slow akward fasion and the experiance gave me the imprrestion that it was pertending to be human.
Also a friend saw a four legged creature cross the road with thin leggs it was taller than a dear and moved unnaturaly. He said it seemed like it was also pretending to be somthing.
Has any one come accross any thing like this? Also if it help I live central newyork state. Thanks in advanced
Possibly a Crane. In the dark whilst you're moving is not the best time to try and work out what something is. Apparently in America there are big Cranes that have thin forward jointed legs and may appear to walk funny if you don't recognise it as a bird. If it had its head tucked down then its body might have looked strange too. A lot of people think the Mothman may have been just such a thing.
But as I was not there it may be an unknown creature, what's your best guess on height and colour and body texture?
Definitly not a crane it didn't seem to have a neck. The color seem a brownish purpleish. As far as pretending to be human it is difficult to explan I just felt like it was trying to look like us. Mabye some sort of shapshifter or demon type thing.
P.s. sorry about my spelling I am diognosed dyslexic.
Some Cranes get pretty big! But if you're sure it wasn't then I can't think what it could be unless whatever the Mothman was is an actual cryptid and it was out and about. What makes you think it was a shape shifter? Did it shift shape?
Also please can you draw it. I don't care how bad you're drawing is, just draw a basic outline of what you think you saw and post it up in gallery and then link the gallery picture in here if you don't mind. It would be a great help.
