There's something roaming the woods of South Carolina and it's got incredibly sharp teeth and hates parked cars.

Somewhere between a Sleestack and a Sasquatch lies the infamous "Lizard Man" of South Carolina a reported monster that may have returned after taking a lengthy hiatus.

Back in the summer of 1988 a 17-year-old boy had stopped along a rural road to change a flat tire when he noticed something big running toward him. The creature that the young man described sounded like something resembling the Gorn from "Star Trek", a large 7-foot-tall upright running lizard creature with glowing red eyes. The youth took off running in the opposite direction, but when he did muster up the courage to return to his vehicle he discovered that it had been clawed and ransacked.

On Monday morning (July 4th) Leon Marshal of rural Lee County, South Carolina discovered that his car had also been attacked by some sort of mysterious animal.

"I ran into the house and told my wife to call the police because something happened to the car," he explains.

"The tooth marks went completely through the fender. That's metal! And it just bent it up. Like it was a piece of tissue paper," added his wife Ada.

This rather odd incident sounds eerily familiar to former Lee County Sheriff Liston Truesdale, "This part here is how it all started in 88. We got a call to come and look at something that had mauled a car. I went out there and looked at that damaged car, and I haven't seen anything like that before."

"They had been seeing a large creature about 7 feet tall, with big red eyes, with three pointed fingers."

"So I started asking residents, 'have you seen anything like a big tall creature round there? And the guys said, 'what you mean that lizard man?' That's how it started and you got it from the horse's mouth."

Ever since that time the "Lizard Man" has become a local celebrity of sorts that has certainly helped the areas tourist trade. Many a monster hunter / fan has ventured into Lee County to try and spot a glimpse of the creature.

Whether the monster is real or imaginary has not been proven but there is something in the Carolina woods that hates cars for some reason and attacks them whenever possible. One thing is for certain whatever it is it has huge strong jaws and teeth that can bite through solid metal and claws that can ruin a paint job. Lizard Man, giant gator, predatory mammal, dinosaur or what have you this thing is something you wouldn't want to run into on a dark night that's for sure!

Lizard Men aren't just exclusive to rural South Carolina. On the opposite coast, in California, reports of humanoid reptiles have been reported for decades. In the 40s a fortune hunter claimed that a race of lizard people had built a labyrinth of tunnels filled with gold under Los Angeles. Likewise in the 50s a man almost hit a Lizard Man on a road in Riverside. On top of that Lizard Men have been reportedly seen on the slopes of Mt. Shasta.
