The Lizard Man of Lee County

Lizard Man Lee County

The Lizard Man of Lee County is a reptilian humanoid Cryptid which is said to inhabit areas of swampland in and around Lee County, South Carolina. Some people have speculated that it could actually be a type of Bigfoot, while others think it is an entirely different Cryptid.

The first reported sighting of this horrifying creature was made by Christopher Davis, a 17-year-old local of Lee County, who said he encountered the creature while driving home from work at approximately 2:00 AM on June 29, 1988. According to his account, Davis stopped on a road bordering Scape Ore Swamp to change a tire which had blown out. When he was finishing up he heard a thumping noise coming from from behind him and then turned around to see the creature running towards him. He then jumped in the car and tried to get out of the area as quickly as possible. Davis said the creature tried to grab at the car and then jumped on its roof as he tried to escape, clinging on to it as Davis swerved from side to side in an effort to throw it off. After he returned home, Davis' side-view-mirror was found to be badly damaged, and scratch marks were found on the car's roof, though there was no other physical evidence of his encounter.

In the month following the Davis sighting there were several other reports of a large lizard like creature, and of unusual scratches and bite marks found on cars parked close to the swamp. Most of these are said to have occurred within a 3 mile radius of the swamps of Bishopville.

Lyle Blackburn, author of The Beast of Boggy Creek, wrote a book on the subject and you can check that out here:
