Florida woman still thinks she saw dinosaur in backyard video

A Florida woman is doubling down on her wild claim that she saw a baby dinosaur running through her backyard.

Two months ago, Cristina Ryan’s security camera caught a tailed species running on its hind legs through her property. Though only seconds long, the middle-of-the-night viral video still has heads spinning.

“There has never been an answer to what it was. Even despite asking neighbors. We are all still convinced it’s a dinosaur!” Palm Coast resident Ryan, who spotted the thought-to-be-extinct creature in April, told Fox 35.

When she first captured the footage, Ryan immediately jumped to pre-historic conclusions.

“Any animal we can come up with that would be ‘walking’ at 3:40 in the morning, wouldn’t walk this way,” Ryan told the outlet shortly after spotting the animal. “Maybe I’ve watched ‘Jurassic Park’ too many times — but I see a raptor or other small dinosaur.”

Commenters on the video had more realistic explanations, citing Comodo dragons or other large lizards. “Some say a large bird, but that makes no sense — since whatever it is appears to have front legs. So not sure?” said Ryan.

But she maintains her Mesozoic suspicion.

“I’m sticking with raptor myself.”
