I'm not even sure where this photograph comes from, I mean geographically, but I think it comes from within the United States. It seems some are suggesting it is the Lizard man of Bishopville, but I'm not sure about that. The Bishopville lizard man is said to be some type of reptilian cryptid from South Carolina and it has been well researched and documented.
As for the above photograph, reportedly someone took a picture of this odd looking figure as it crossed a river. They supposedly described it as being some type of lizard man, but it kinda looks like a dogman or werewolf type of thing, but I guess it could be a lizard. The photo is blurry and out of focus. The figure is bipedal and has a humanoid looking body with a dog (ish) tail.
I personally think the image is a photoshopped fake and that the story is probably not real. So, I took some time, but not much, to zoom in on the figure and try to clean it up a little.
After that, I ran the original image on some software that looks for signs that the image is a fake or that it has been manipulated with some type of photo editors.
The image showed or matched several photo editing softwares. These included: GIMP, Paintshop Pro, and paint.net. It also appears the original image, which I will assume was just of the river, was taken with an Olympus camera.
In the end the software concluded that there was a high probability that the image was processed and/or edited. I tend to agree and think the image is a fake. I do however think there is something to the Lizard man reports from South Carolina.
