This story is from my father, who told me about it one day. One late night, his girlfriend at the time, along with himself, were driving somewhere. He had to be cautious, since it was so dark outside. As he slowly drove along the road, his girlfriend said “What is that thing?”. My dad looked over to the spot on the side of the road where the thing was walking, keeping pace with my dad’s car.
He said it looked like a lizard, and was short. He couldn’t tell if it was just a person playing some sort of prank. The scales looked too real on it’s small body. They never knew what that thing was. Alien, humanoid, who knows? Just be glad that it didn’t go running after them. It looked like it had razor sharp claws too. I hope to never encounter what my dad did.
