Bishopville,SC. -- An orange moon rises over Scape Ore Swamp, frogs sing a deep- throated mournful tune, mosquitoes dance across a bayou fed by artesian springs, and the curious gather, waiting and watching. It is a creature bigger then life: say the few who claim to have seen it. Looming 7 feet tall and covered with tough, scaly green skin, muscular ape like arms ending with three fingers tipped with 4 inch long black nails and long claws on three toes. The slanted eyes emanate a piercing red glow. It walks somewhat like a human. Lizard Man. Is it a mutant from the swamp? A rare Bigfoot? A bear or other animal distorted by the moonlight? A product of an overactive imagination? A zany - and, so far, successful hoax ? People here wish they knew. The Lizard Man first made an appearance in June 1988. Eye-witness accounts and new circumstantial evidence suggests that he has again come out of Scape Ore Swamp in Lee County. Have you seen the Lizard Man ?
