I received the following encounter report today:
Hello - I would like to tell you about an experience I had in 1954 while working with the US Naval engineers at Zaragoza Air Base near Zaragoza, Spain. This was to be a refurbished NATO facility. I was a contractor (24 yo & working my father's construction firm) and hired by the DoD. This was my 1st time away from the United States. I had another fellow with me who had worked for my father for a couple of years.
Only a few people knew of my experience - my wife (who is deceased) and two close friends (who have also passed away). I have read some of the stories of other people you have published. I thought that I could add my story to the record.
After I had been in Spain for several weeks, I decided to take in the surroundings. I was told by some of the locals that the Monasterio de Piedra near Nuevalos would be an excellent place to visit. The monastery was about 60 miles away, so I decided it would be an enjoyable day trip. When I arrived, I met a young lady who offered to show me around the complex. It was a very hot day (early August) so we took numerous breaks along the way.
As the afternoon waned and the early evening approached, it was time for me to head back toward Zaragoza. The young lady mentioned that there was an very nice inn not far from the monastery if I wanted to stay the night, then get an early start in the morning. So I decided to stay the night - maybe do some exploring that evening.
The inn was very rustic, though quite comfortable. I had dinner outside on the back patio - it was an excellent evening. Though it was dusk, I could still see the terrain not far from the inn. There was a vineyard and a small lavender meadow behind the inn which led to a series of rocky outcrops. I thought that I would take a look around, but I first asked the owner if it was OK to do so.
I walked through the vineyard and reached a small pond, which had a loud chorus of frogs. By this time it was dark, but there was a fair amount of available moonlight - but I still needed a flashlight to see where I was going. I walked around the pond and started to cross a small bridge over a narrow stream. As I walked over the bridge, I noticed something run through the water about 50 ft. upstream. There was enough moonlight to where I could make out an upright shape. This thing was heading toward the high rocks, though I lost sight of it.
I stood silent for about 5 minutes. It was eerie because the frogs were now quiet. The only sound was coming from the direction of the rocks - and the noise was very strange. It sounded like a guttural 'yak yak yak' series, that would pause for a few seconds, then repeat. It would also fade in and out. After a few minutes, it stopped. I had no idea what it was.
I crossed the bridge and started to slowly approach the rocks. As I came to the rock face, there was a fairly well-worn trail on the ground along the edge. I walked further until I reached an opening in the rock face. I pointed the flashlight inside and saw that it was a grotto about 15 ft deep and high enough for me to stand in. The floor of the grotto was littered with small animal bones, so I figured that there were predators about - most likely fox.
I continued on the trail until I heard the 'yak yak yak' sound again - and it was very close. I instantly stopped walking and started searching around me with the flashlight. Just then, some gravel landed on me - and the loud 'yak yak yak' sound was coming from above me. I quickly looked up and pointed the flashlight. There was a creature standing on a small ledge about 15 ft. away, staring at me with yellow eyes reflecting back. It was screaming 'yak yak yak' in quick constant rhythm.
This was the most ghastly thing I've ever witnessed. It was standing on two legs and was about 4 -5 ft tall. I've read about Reptilian encounters on your blog - well, I think this may have been one. It was dark in color and had arms like a human. The face looked like that of a lizard - resembling that of an iguana.
After a few seconds it leaped off the ledge onto the trail - swiftly running on 2 legs in the opposite direction. It was then that I noticed a long tail as it moved away from me.
I quickly made my way back toward the inn - and directly to my room. I laid in bed thinking about this creature the entire night. I was terrified to look out my window, fearing that it followed me back to the inn.
Early in the morning I checked out and drove back to Zaragoza. I have no proof to my experience other than my word. But I now believe that this was a Reptilian creature. H.Y.

Location/Date: Bobadilla Air Base, Malaga, Spain - 1976 - night
While guarding an ammunition depot near a freight train a military guard observed a strange figure about 1.20 meters in height, black in color that was moving over the train tracks in a very quick and agile manner. Two guards approached the figure and pointed their rifles at it and it suddenly turned around and stared at the two men with two large bright red glowing eyes, it jumped up into the darkness and disappeared. Other soldiers at the base had seen a similar figure around the same time and strange objects over the area had also been reported.
One night, in the same base a soldier was given the task to guard a metallic cage, which contained a weird reptilian creature that emitted strange, grunting sounds. One night while standing duty a dark helicopter landed and three military personnel exited the craft, these proceeded to pick up the cage with the humanoid and left immediately. The guard described the humanoid as resembling a “reptilian penguin” with strong jaws and claws. It was about 40 cm in height. The guard observed that the helicopter lacked any identifiable markings on it.

Carlos Rivera, a member of the folkloric musical ensemble ‘Medina Azahara’ was returning from a concert on the N-432 road in a mini-van on his way to Cordoba accompanied by two band technicians (three men in total). Carlos, who was sitting in the passenger seat next to the driver, suddenly at a location about 15 kilometers from Zafra (Badajoz) saw coming out of the embankment only a couple of meters on the right side of the road a strange humanoid figure that approached the passenger side window where Carlos was sitting and briefly looked inside at the astounded witness. The humanoid was described as about 2 meters in height, very thin with a ‘quasi-skull-like face’. Its lower jaw was open widely displaying a huge cavernous mouth; it also had luminous dark yellow eyes. It had something thick wrapped around its neck, like a ‘lifesaver’ and was moving its head in a circular motion almost as if it were ‘stretching’ its neck, at the same time the rest of its body seemed to tremble. It wore a white tunic-like garment that reflected the headlights of the van. The driver panicked and accelerated from the area while Carlos watched as the strange humanoid disappeared in the same direction it had come from.
