Monsters in the Swamp

One of the myths we try to dispel here in the swamp at the Audubon Center at Francis Beidler Forest is the idea that monsters inhabit the woods and water. Although the dissemination of such information by General Francis Marion and his men was undoubtedly effective psychological warfare against the British, there is no evidence for the existence of creatures such as the Lizard Man.

However, when a friend's young son made mention that he intended to grow up and solve the cyrptofauna mysteries of the world, we could not resist another training session on the newly-acquired Adobe Photoshop. Dressed as the education director, Lizard Man was caught sunning near the front door of the nature center. You do not want to know what he had for lunch! In the second image, we were focusing the camera on the baby Loch Ness (Scottish for Four Holes Swamp) Monster in the foreground when we caught an out-of-focus Bigfoot moving rapidly in the background.
