Woman films 'baby dinosaur' in her back yard

A woman from Florida recently captured footage of what she believes to be a dinosaur running through her yard.
The bizarre sighting, which occurred in Palm Coast, Florida back on April 17th, was later featured in a piece by Fox News and has since gone on to rack up hundreds of thousands of views online.

It was reported by Cristina Ryan who remains adamant that her security camera had picked up a "baby dinosaur" running through her yard in the middle of the night.

"Any animal we can come up with that would be 'walking' at 3:40 in the morning, wouldn't walk this way," she said.
"Maybe I've watched 'Jurassic Park' too many times, but I see a raptor or other small dinosaur!"

It's difficult to say exactly what the creature in the video could be, however it has been speculated that it is far more likely to be a dog or perhaps some sort of large lizard such as a komodo dragon.

"Some say a large bird, but that makes no sense - since whatever it is appears to have front legs," said Ryan. "So not sure? I'm sticking with raptor myself."

You can check out the footage for yourself below.

Most logical explanation is a iguana or Nile monitor being they're amongst the invasive species in Florida.

The PERSON has a white plastic bucket on the head. The PERSON lifts it off and a viewer can see that the PERSON is wearing dark pants with a light stripe down the side, perhaps a band uniform. The viewer can see, if observant, that there is at least one observer laughing an A$$ off at the upper right. Just a guess.   Hint run in slow mo.

I bet a lot of these videos are pranks. If you knew someone that had cameras on their property. What way to have fun and dress up in a gorilla suit.

It's too blurry to identify it but it looks like a fox/coyote with something stuck to it's head as it lopes along.

For a short distance a gator can outrun a quarter horse!!! They may not be fast for distance but they are QUICK for short spurts. I've never seen one actually chase anything but I've seen them make a mad dash to the water if caught very far from it when people show up. They lift their body up off the ground and just FLY.

I looked at the video again and realized that it looks more like a bird of some sort. The image quality is sub-par but it looks like either a turkey or a peacock/peahen with a plastic container stuck on its head. The way it runs tells me that it is not a fox or coyote though.
