The Lizard Man, being particularly terrifying, deserves a high place on this list. This humanoid cryptid is said to inhabit the swampland areas in and around Lee County, South Carolina. The sightings began on June 29, 1988, with the most recent notable sighting in February, 2008. The creature is described as being 7 feet 2 inches tall, bipedal, with a strong build, green scaly skin, and glowing red eyes. Reports state that the Lizard Man has three toes on each foot and three fingers on each hand. His fingers end in a circular pad that apparently enables him to scale walls and hang from ceilings. As evidenced by the damage done to the vehicles of those unfortunate enough to encounter it, the creature also possesses incredible strength – he is clearly capable of ripping into a car. Pulling over in this area is a bad idea.
