The Fresno Nightcrawler is one of the most intriguing and baffling cryptids ever reported. It is a creature that looks like a pair of walking pants with a small head, and it has been captured on video multiple times in different locations. But what is it? Is it an alien, a new species, a prank, or something else?

What is the Fresno Nightcrawler?

The Fresno Nightcrawler is a humanoid cryptid that has been seen in Fresno, California and Yosemite National Park. It has also been reported in Poland and Ohio. The creature appears to be very short, about 1.5 meters tall, with most of its height being made up of its legs. It has an extremely small upper body and a tiny head. It is usually white or pale gray in color, and sometimes has webbing between its knees and torso. It moves by walking slowly and gracefully, like a pair of pants on stilts.

When and Where was it First Seen?

The first sighting of the Fresno Nightcrawler was captured by a security camera in 2007. A man named Jose installed the camera above his garage to find out why his dogs were barking at night. One morning, he checked the footage and saw two strange creatures walking across his lawn. He was shocked and scared by what he saw, and he contacted a local TV station to share his video. The video went viral on the internet and attracted the attention of paranormal investigators and enthusiasts.

What are the Other Sightings?

Since then, there have been more sightings of the Fresno Nightcrawler in different places. In 2011, another security camera recorded two creatures in Yosemite National Park, one larger than the other. In 2017, a handheld camera filmed a similar creature in Poland. In 2014, a former marine and his wife saw a tall, slender, gray creature near Carmel, Ohio, which some believe to be related to the Fresno Nightcrawler.

What are the Possible Explanations?

There are many theories and speculations about what the Fresno Nightcrawler is and where it comes from. Some of them are:

  • A primate with short arms that walks upright.

  • A person wearing big pants and walking on stilts.

What is the Evidence for or Against its Existence?
