A TERRIFIED home owner claims a mystery creature filmed skulking across her yard in Florida could be a baby dinosaur.
Cristina Ryan shared her eerie home security footage which appears to show an animal with a thick tail running upright on two legs.
The reptilian intruder was filmed passing through Cristina’s yard in Palm Coast last week.
She told local channel Fox 35: “Any animal we can come up with that would be walking at 3.40 in the morning, wouldn’t walk this way.
“Maybe I’ve watched Jurassic Park too many times, but I see a raptor or other small dinosaur.”
Cristina joked that everyone she has shown the video to agreed it can only be a prehistoric monster.
She added: “Some say a large bird, but that makes no sense — since whatever it is appears to have front legs.
“I’m sticking with raptor myself.”
Some viewers online claimed it looked like a velociraptor, the vicious pack hunter from the Jurassic Park films.
One said: «Anyone else excited that dinos are back?»
Others suggested it could be the legendary blood-sucking chupacabra, or even an alien.
One said: “UFO recently sighted and guess this could be the CEO checking things out.”
Most suggested explanations were more down to earth.
“That is a dog wearing a harness dragging a leash,» one viewer said..
«You can see all four legs and the harness and leash dragging behind it.”
Another suggested it could be a cat in a reflective collar, dragging a snake it had just caught.
Others said it could be an iguana with a plastic container on its head.
Larger species of the tropical lizards are sometimes known to walk upright like a T-Rex.
Last year a terrifying mystery creature with sharp teeth but no eyes washed up on a beach in South Carolina.
