Check out the new book, LIZARD MAN: THE TRUE STORY OF THE BISHOPVILLE MONSTER, which is an in-depth account of everything surrounding the famous Lizard Man case. More info here: http://www.lyleblackburn.com/lizardman
As a cryptozoologist myself, having graduated from a college in California that actually teaches this subject in great depth, I am inclined to say that no pictures also means something else about the creature. Most cameras use infrared beams to detect the presence of moving objects to take the picture. It is obvious that this creature and Bigfoot and a few others can see in the infrared range and therefore avoid the camera all together. There was mention a few months back in August of 2013, that the creature had been shot and that blood samples sent to a lab came back as "Not human, unknown origin." The lab refused to say anymore about the samples and nothing more has been said.
People don't realize how adaptable the human genome really is; as long as there are four strands of DNA present and somewhere near 46 total chromosomes, we can be bred with any number of creatures on this planet.
That "terrible" CofC Magazine article won a Communicator Award of Excellence! Nice job, CofC Magazine!
I live in Charleston now, but am from Bishopville. I was even interviewed when PM Magazine did their story about the Lizard Man. I can tell you, even though as a kid I believed the Lizard Man was real, and was scared out of my mind, it was a hoax. My family and I knew the farmer mentioned above very well. It has been said he admitted to it after everything died down.
You don't understand evolution, FCB. This creature has, over many millions of years, become incredibly good at avoiding humans. That's practically all it does. Well, except for the Lizard Man, which attacked some people back in the day but even that might have been a genetic anomaly with a very short spin on the cycle of life. Speaking of anomaly's with a short cycle of life, there's a link to a really terrible article about the CofC's trip to check out the Lizard Man up above in the comments. Don't click on it, it's worse than being attacked by a Lizard Man.
As it is, there's a very real possibility that this thing exists and always has existed and we've just never seen it. It may even be invisible when we're looking at it, or it might just look like a tree. This sentence is in Spanish when you aren't looking at it. There's plenty of reason to believe in this.
What's troubling to me is how advanced this creature must be, in an evolutionary sense, to not only be so adept at hiding itself but to also be able to somehow, possibly psychically, prevent people looking for it to ever bring a camera with them and take a picture of the creature. That is quite an accomplishment.
Dead skunk, rabbit, deer, bear, snake, frog,squirrel, bird, human, in the middle of the road.
But no dead sasquatch or bigfoot.
Tells me all I need to know.
These people need to seek mental help.
Heh. Apparently that's how long I took meandering through that article.
Wow. That's professional of you.
By the way, you could have at least shared the link to your piece so that everyone could be bored to tears: http://magazine.cofc.edu/2011/09/07/lizard…
For more information about the Lizard Man, read the article about the College of Charleston professors' trip to Bishopville and watch a short movie documenting the adventure, visit
Hm, maybe should have mentioned that the three professors went to Bishopville with the writer, the photographer and the videographer for the College of Charleston Magazine. The magazine wanted to do a story about this, so we organized the trip and asked the professors to come along...
