Woman claiming she caught a 'baby dinosaur' on camera sparks online debate

Is it a dog? A dinosaur? A cry for attention?

A Floridan woman named Cristy Ryan has sparked an online discourse on whether or not dinosaurs still roam this world.

While Science does say otherwise, Ryan explained to US news outlet FOX 35 that "any animal we can come up with that would be 'walking' at 3:40 in the morning, wouldn't walk this way."

"Maybe I've watched Jurassic Park too many times, but I see a raptor or other small dinosaur!"

"Some say a large bird, but that makes no sense since whatever it is appears to have front legs. So not sure? LOL. I'm sticking with raptor myself."

The six-second video showcases a creature quickly running through Ryan's yard. While Ryan's words sound unusual, the creature does have a velociraptor-like build - long tail, hunched shoulders, and all.

Since the video went viral, people have been sounding off their thoughts on the so-called "baby dinosaur," with many pointing out that it's simply a dog with a reflective collar, a wild bird, or an iguana that was caught on Ryan's CCTV.

What do you think the camera saw?
