Is the South Carlina "Lizard Man" real or just a hoax? The team decided to put the myth to the test on the latest "Fact or Faked: Paranormal Files" (Tue., 9 p.m. ET on Syfy). Certainly the locals thought the creature was real, as evidenced by vehicular damage they showed the team. The "lizard man" has a tendency to leap out and attack cars.
But the team's attempts to recreate the damage seen with standard power tools turned out remarkably similar results. Perhaps the "lizard man" has power tools? Is it something the locals have scared up to increase interest in the area, or is it something they truly believe in.
The team dressed up one of their own in a costume fitting the description of the "lizard man" to see if they could fool some locals into having sightings of their mythical creature, and that's just what happened.
But does proving that they can mimic the creature disprove the existence of the creature? Fans on Twitter weren't so sure that it does, even though the team ultimately declared this file a hoax.
Follow the trail on "Face or Faked: Paranormal Files" every Tuesday at 9 p.m. ET on Syfy.
